Texte du rabat

A long time coming, this thought-provoking book is the debut work of author Mia-Louise Connor. As someone who fell into street dog rescue herself five years ago via a social media platform with no knowledge of the complexities owning a street dog would entail, she found herself on a huge learning curve. Mia-Louise felt that given the unexpected issues she faced, and learning that others too were in despair and enduring the same or similar issues, that something fundamental was essentially missing from the process of street dog rescuing, the education. Mia-Louise said 'People in the UK think that homing a street dog is like homing a UK rescue and it's not. I too fell prey to this kind of thinking, I mean, why would we think it's any different? But it is. They have a different skill set to UK rescues that you have to navigate for the first few months, years or in some cases for life. I don't feel enough support and information is given when acquiring these dogs and it can be quite an ordeal for both the dog and new owners'. Using her own experience from street dog rescuing and knowledge gained from her university degree in conservation and ecology, she sat down to pen the first street dog homing guide. With a growing movement of street dog rescue over the internet, this book takes the subject by the horns and looks at the implications of homing a street dog both for those offering a place in their home and more importantly to the dogs being taken from the street. Based on her experience, it debunks myths associated with homing street dogs, gives them a fair hearing while remaining sensitive to the UK issue of homeless dogs. It walks potential owners through their legal obligations, and the behaviour issues they can expect from their dog; gives insight to the work charities do and considers the actual impact street dog rescue has on the dog's country of origin. This is a must read for anyone who is considering homing a street dog.
