Ever since her father bought an old farm in the south of Spain, Belinda has been rescuing abandoned dogs.
Pa warns her. ''You can't save them all !''
She knows. She needs the help of other people like her: the Peoples Animal Welfare Society.
To raise funds for PAWS, 'dogumentaries' are made and millions of viewers love watching little mutt Gigi, a bitch from the beach, found by
the filmcrew. But after having saved hundreds of dogs and succesfully rebuild a new rescue centre, Belinda finds her marriage has collapsed and she herself might be homeless soon.
It is time to be sensible and think of your own. No more dogs please.
Right then a photo of a badly wounded Galgo pops up on the internet.
"You kow, I look at that broken dog, and I see you."
From the heat and dust of the Spanish countryside to the glamour and glitter of showbusiness, here is the true story of the rescue of the
last one that had to be saved : a dog called Girl.
''This is a true story about the nature of altruïsm, showbusiness and the love of man's best friend.''
'' 'A dog from Spain' swings from laugh-out-loud funny to heartbreakingly sad. It's a wagging tale with a happy ending !''
With 50 photos and 12 unique film clips to give you a look inside 'a dog from Spain', as well as the music
composed for the tv-series.
Half the proceeds of this book will go to PAWS and HASS, the animal rescue societies from the book.
