Canine World Cup
Wildlife photographer celebrates dog diversity and soccer
With the World Cup coming up next month, wildlife photographer Eric Isselée decided to combine his profession with his love of soccer by creating images of national dog breeds wearing their country's jerseys. One of my favorite parts about watching world agility competitions is seeing the diversity of dog breeds, so these portraits are a fun way to celebrate the upcoming sporting event, while highlighting different pups around the world.

Eric normally photographs animals for the Life On White project, capturing images of domestic and wild animals on white backgrounds. The initiative has taken pictures of over 1,000 species since its inception eight years ago.

Unfortunately there is no American dog represented, perhaps because we don't have a clear iconic breed. If you were to create a photo for team U.S.A., which dog would be featured?
