In this photo taken on Monday, April 9, 2012, Taiwanese photographer Tou Chih-kang calms an excited dog before trying to make a portrait in his makeshift studio moments before the dog is to be put down by lethal injection at a shelter in Taoyuan, northern Taiwan. Tou has been visiting dog shelters for two years now, making human-like portraits that give a sense of dignity and esteem to some 400 canines, in hopes of educating the public on the proper care of pets. This year Taiwanese authorities will kill an estimated 80,000 stray dogs at 38 pounds scattered throughout the island.  (AP Photo/Wally Santana)
