Wylie Zusammenfassung

Wylie: The Brave Street Dog Who Never Gave Up Pen Farthing

'When people gave up on Wylie, Wylie refused to give up on people.'

For a street dog born in the city of Kandahar, Afghanistan, to be crowned top dog at Scruffts, a competition for rescued crossbreeds held during Crufts, the largest dog show on earth, is nothing short of a miracle. But for Wylie, the gentle, cropped eared ball of fur, miracles seemed to happen quite regularly.

Beaten and abused while being used as a bait dog, Wylie suffered terrible injuries that needed urgent treatment. Rescued close to death, with hacked off ears and a severed tail, he was attended to by soldiers who feared he would not last the night. Astonishingly he did, only to return days later with new injuries.

However a lifeline came when he was handed over to animal welfare Charity Nowzad and flown to Britain in the hope of finding a new life. But would anyone take a chance on a seemingly nervous and undomesticated stray? Luckily for Wylie his biggest adventure yet was about to begin...

This is the incredible and heart-warming story, full of tragedy and triumph, of a dog who never gave up hope.

Über Pen Farthing

After over 20 years as a Royal Marine Pen Farthing never thought he would semi-abandon his passion for climbing and kayaking and head off in the direction of animal welfare. But a dog called Nowzad changed his view on life and sparked his desire to write. He now spends his time managing the Nowzad Dogs charity (Just Giving Charity of the Year 2013), enjoying the odd rock climb when it is not raining, and walking his own dog pack.

He is the author of the Sunday Times bestseller One Dog at a Time: Saving the Strays of Helmand and No Place Like Home: A New Beginning with the Dogs of Afghanistan.
