In our society, dogs are considered members of the family, we affectionately call them man's best friend and value them for their superb sense of smell. Some even have a job – for example, as rescue dogs or guide dogs for the blind. It is our duty as human beings to keep dogs in accordance with the needs of their species.
In many countries, a dog's life looks completey different: hundreds of thousands of stray dogs live on the streets – many are ill, injured or undernourished. They are often killed as parasites, and in some places dog meat even appears on the human menu.
