It’s a dogs life, it certainly is for many of the dogs living on the streets of Pattaya. Soi dogs, as you see in these photos (below) don’t have an easy life, abandoned, unwanted and turned out on to the street they are basically left to fend for themselves.
The fortunate ones are fed daily by kind-hearted people, some are taken in to a temple and cared for by the Monks.
Life on the street takes it’s toll, and without the care of a loving owner they become ravaged by diseases like mange and heart disease, hunger and injury. It’s a crying shame really because the dogs are considered a nuisance by many, and often quite rightly so, but what else is an abandoned dog to do, “it’s a dogs life”.
