Photographer Andrew Grant's "Rover" is a museum-quality, hardcover tribute to man's best friend -- in all its many colors, shapes and sizes.
With over 400 up-close images in stunning detail, Grant truly captures the unique exteriors of dozens of dogs and their diverse personalities and emotions. Nearly all of the dogs featured in Rover once lived in a rescue or shelter. All proceeds from the book are going to pet charities.
"Extra" stopped by a photo shoot and got the lowdown from Grant!
Grant is now looking for more great pooches to photograph. Here are a few upcoming casting calls:
