Wunderdog #3

Wunderdog is a magazine for underdogs and wonderdogs, dedicated to the good life with rescue dogs.

Wunderdog is about transformation: the alchemy of what happens when good dogs and good humans meet. One creature rescues another, for the chance to be happy and the best possible version of themselves. A wonderdog is a superhero, and a Wunderdog is an underdog who achieved happiness, even greatness.

The cover stars of issue 3

Meet Sowa and Sowy, two young dogs who were rescued by Soi Dog Foundation. The Thai super-charity is our cover story for good reason: coronavirus has created the perfect storm for the sanctuary that relies on international volunteers and flights taking adopted Soi dogs to their new homes, mostly overseas. Faced with having to shut an overcrowded shelter to dogs in need, co-founder John Dalley went another direction. (John has just been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours Lists, for services to animal welfare – good timing!).

To find out how Soi Dog, Sowa and Sowy are doing, get issue 3 of Wunderdog.
