Incredible Dog Journeys




Amazing true stories of dogs who found their way home.

Determined dogs from around the world travel vast distances and overcome unbelievable odds.

Meet Bonnie, the kelpie–blue heeler cross, who led her owner to safety through one of the deadliest bushfires in Australia’s history; Penny, a Hungarian vizsla, who was dognapped and found 3800 miles from where she was taken; and Inka, the friendly bull-mastiff cross, who made her way back to her owner after ten years, and just in time for Christmas.

From heartwarming tales of canine loyalty to mysterious cases of dogs turning up thousands of miles away, these are the incredible true stories of how sixteen remarkable dogs found their way home.
