Take Me Home: Tales of Battersea Dogs




An irresistible look at life in the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, with real-life, heart-warming stories and tips on how to take care of dogs and give them the best home possible,

Melissa Wareham always wanted to work with dogs - and got her first job at the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, cleaning out the kennels! Over the years she met thousands of lost pets, including 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.
With information about different dog breeds, how to handle them, and how to look after your very own puppy, this is perfect for any child who loves animals.
