In her book, "A Breed Apart: A Celebration of the New American Mutt," photographer Amanda Jones captures the beauty and spirit of mixed-breed dogs using a clean and simple style of portraiture. Each photo in the book is complemented by a whimsical "breed" name she creates for her subjects -- a purely tongue-in-cheek take on the trend of "designer" dogs.

Unfamiliar with the borgi? Never heard of the russenji?
In spite of their strange names and unlikely lineage, the new American mutt is suddenly the dog of the moment. Amanda Jones captures their quirky appeal in "A Breed Apart" -- a collection of stunning black-and-white portraits of these wildly popular and uniquely blended dogs.
Amanda Jones is one of the premier animal photographers in the United States. She travels the country extensively and has been producing elegant portraits of dogs for more than ten years. A regular contributor to The Bark, Amanda lives in the Berkshires with her family and their dogs (naturally).
