Shelter Dogs Go Glam for 'Town & Country'

Older shelter dogs can be overlooked in the rush to find an ideal pet, but Town & Country magazine has found a way to make sure all eyes are on an adorable group from the Humane Society of New York.

Famed photographer and reported dog lover Elliott Erwitt captured a dozen of these canine cuties for a November photo spread that also happens to feature some pretty hot fall fashions.

It’s for your eyes to decide what gets the lion’s share of your attention — adorable doggies or adorable digs for your tired ol’ dogs, if you know what we mean. Take the challenge below!
