Ba55GL-CMAAOQFJA former judge on America’s Next Top Model and the current host of the modeling series The Face, famed photographer Nigel Barker has become a role model for potential pet parents by welcoming a rescue Rover into his heart and home.

A high-profile pal to all with paws who has used his photographic skill to capture the plight of Canadian seals and to show those with a passion for compassion how to focus peoples’ attention on shelter pets by focusing their camera lenses on adoptable dogs and cats, the reality personality recently stepped in front of the camera to pose for an impromptu family portrait with his wife, children and the Barkers’ new barking buddy, Memphis.

Rescued in Tennessee, Memphis found his forever family at the Port Washington adoption headquarters of the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption center, North Shore Animal League America.
