Dogs have played a central role in the lives of New Zealanders, from working farm dogs, to police dogs, loyal companions, mascots, little heroes and fictional dogs that have become part of our culture.
In this book we look at the dogs that have been memoralised in public statues that have become community icons. Travelling the country we trace the statues and the stories behind them to show how dogs play an important role as man's best friend.
Featuring statues of dogs such as:

  • George the Jack Russell who saved children from an attack by two pit bulls
  • Legendary cattle rustler James MacKenzie and his famous dog, Friday
  • The father of Wellington John Plimmer and his dog Fritz
  • Sue the collie sheepdog at Taieri recognising the work of farm dogs
  • The dogs from Hairy Maclary
  • The Dog from Footrot Flats
