Street dogs focuses on dogs from Puerto Rico and a few areas of Mexico. Just like the author's previous book, the portraits of these dogs show them in a dignified light. The foreword was well written and informative explaining why there are problems with strays in these locations.

Dogs willingness to forgive and love humans regardless of cruelty shown them in the past is always surprising. The world would be a much better place if we could learn this behaviour from them.

This book was a wonderful companion to Shelter Dogs, and once again I had watery eyes.

Traer Scott is one hell of a photographer/storyteller. The photos, of street dogs she found in Puerto Rico and Mexico, are so beautifully composed that you will return to them again and again. And Scott's understanding of the conditions that create street dogs in the first place is complex. Many of these dogs have been adopted; some cannot be. Scott honors them all. I defy you not to cry when you read this--and to be inspired to action.
We forget that dogs (and cats) elsewhere are in need of homes. Our less fortunate neighboring countries have even less ability or resources to care for their abandoned pets. Mini documentaries about rescue groups and like minded individuals motivated by compassion for animals otherwise doomed. Very moving.

Read this in the library while I was searching for another book. I had to discreetly use a tissue to wipe my tears.
A terrific complement to the original in the series, Shelter Dogs. The book does cite a couple of cases of horrific cruelty to homeless dogs but does not dwell on them, but rather emphasizes the wonderful, selfless work of the many people who devote their lives to finding and caring for homeless animals and to the stories of those dogs who were rescued.

Some parts sad and heart breaking, but good to know there are people trying to help the street odgs.
