Spain is the most popular holiday destination for British tourists, and the most popular destination for emigrating Brits. The book highlights the negative and positive British involvement in the Spanish stray dog problem, and also shows how the issue is being addressed by rescue organisations and volunteers. With a firsthand account of finding a sick and uncared for stray on the side of the road, and details of the specific nature of many of the Spanish breeds and hunting pastimes, this unique book reveals a little known face of British and Spanish culture with inside knowledge and insight from all levels. From the Spanish hunting culture to the British tourist culture, a chain of responsibility for the stray dog problem exists that crosses borders and societies. Included are case studies and photos of all aspects of the rescue world, showing just how much can be done with the will and motivation.

Review:

"When you combine travelogue and animal rescue you know what’s coming: plenty of passion and panache ... A sobering homage to canine castoffs, the reflective in-the-trenches documentary ranges from unsettling and sobering on one page to powerful and ambitious the next with seldom a standstill moment in between." - Seattle Kennel Club



"not an indictment of any culture or nation; it is a heart-warming and positive look at how a few dedicated individuals can make a difference. The stories of the many dogs told have happy endings and reading the book is an uplifting experience. It’s not full of distressing or upsetting images; instead we see dogs rediscovering happiness and love ... this book is sure to appeal to the many dog-owning VW bus owners." - VW Camper and Commercial magazine
