These dogs have some serious style.

    Right now one of the cutest campaigns ever is going viral: Pit bulls in flower crowns. Photographer Sophie Gamand is capturing these canines at their prettiest all to raise awareness for the misunderstood breed. More than 1 million pit bulls are euthanized every year in American shelters, according to Gamand, but she is working to end the perception of pit bulls as a violent breed. "The idea [of Pit Bull Flower Power] is to get these dogs adopted and beyond to help change the way we look at pit bulls," she says.

    We love that the discussion around these precious pooches is changing the way the public views them, and we also see these faux floral crowns as the new wedding dog trend. How adorable do each of these little guys look all dolled up with peonies, orchids and dahlias?

    The best part? You can even adopt some of these dogs right now. See more puppies like Blossom (pictured above, who just loves to play outside) below and visit StrikingPaws.com for more information on adoption.

    When Slim first came to Sean Casey Animal Rescue in New York, he was weak and missing patches of hair. But, as you can see, now he's accessorizing his furry coat with textured fall florals!

    ​Otter's ears have been cropped, but that doesn't mean he's a tough guy. Animal Haven shelter calls him a loving and gentle boy who loves hiking and who does well around other dogs.

  5. Brie
