Wylie : The Brave Street Dog Who Never Gave Up Paperback


'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.
