Take Me Home: Tales of Battersea Dogs

A moving and funny snapshot of life in the world’s most famous dog refuge, full of true stories about the plucky hounds who live there. A must for any dog-lover! This enchanting look at life in Britain’s most-loved dogs’ home is author Melissa Wareham’s memoir of fifteen years working there. It will introduce you to some of the many thousands of lost pets with big personalities who have passed through Battersea’s doors. Dogs like mongrel Tulip, who liked to ride solo on the 159 bus; stinky Pepe le Pew, who was in dire need of a bath – and Benjamin the lurcher, chosen to greet the Queen when she visited the Home! Full of unforgettable stories and fascinating facts about the history of the Home, this wonderful book will also teach you all about different dog breeds, how to handle dogs, and how to look after your very own puppy!
