Given the subject, I feared Scott's new book would be difficult to peruse, and maybe even impossible to enjoy. But it turns out to be remarkably uplifting--thanks entirely to Scott's amazing talent and keen eye. Her black and white images capture the pathos and unassailable dignity of a stratum of animals that far too many people are bent on ignoring. You can't ignore them now. Their faces and expressions may permanently affect your opinion of purebreds....As we first learned in her bestselling "Shelter Dogs," Scott can write too....her thoughtful introduction hits the perfect balance between necessary background information and personal vignette. You're apt to need a box of kleenex beside you for the final updates on the dogs--machete-victim, Jess, is now living with a family in Washington State, Skippy went to Boston, Elsa is in Florida. There may be hope for the world after all.....

Author photographer Traer Scott journeyed to Puerto Rico and Mexico to capture her black and white photos of dogs living alone or in packs on city streets: thus STREET DOGS offers up a documentary of some thirty street dogs as they seek food, play, and live. She's captured some of the heartbreak of such abandoned animals but also produces a photo documentary suitable for any general-interest library strong in animal portraits, as well as many a college-level art photography library.

Street Dogs was an extremly touching book of photos of so many forgotten, hungry, yet vibrant puppies and dogs.
It is so sad to see these beautiful creatures struggling to survive.

Traer Scott has a real talent for capturing the heart and sole of one of these beautiful dogs just through their eyes. As in Shelter Dogs I found myself with a lump in my throat throughout the book.

A smart buy for anyone who claims to be or is a dog-lover.

So I hadn't read a book in years.. this had tons of great shots and inspired me in many ways, I have already been volunteering at my local shelter in OC, CA thanks to this book it inspired me to charge forward with my move to Mexico to help with street stray dogs that I found out about via my pal that was a co founder of PETA, he's started a new non profit to help the problem, [...], thanx to Alex I'm gonna rock and roll and this book really showed me what needs to be done and what many people are doing!!! What initially had me ask about street dogs when I met Alex was a dog I had show up at my warehouse 3 years ago that I named Pancho Vila, he's turned out to be awesome and I'm hosting an art show in March featuring Canvas prints I've shot of him... he has his own business cards and even [...] he's such a kool dog like the dogs in this book !!!

This book gives us an idea of how street dogs in Puerto Rico and Mexico live. Scott's unique perspective is amazing and sad all at the same time. Best thing about this book is that a portion of the proceeds is donated to the ASPCA; worth buying it just for that! Buy this book along with her book Shelter Dogs and be prepared to get teary eyed! Thank you.

I treasure this book. It is beautiful and heartbreaking. Traer Scott courageously sticks her neck out to bring us haunting images and stories. Both this book and her book Shelter Dogs are money well spent.
