The Life of Dogs in Lijiang Old Town and Shangri La

I have been noticing the many dogs in the streets of Lijiang Old Town and Shangri-La while traveling through the Yunnan Province.

Most of the dogs live on the streets, getting around mostly unnoticed and abandoned. They look for food and water near humans and their stores or just lay around in between the daily life of us humans and illustrate the coexistence.

Some people have well groomed dogs. They stand out with their coat and attitude among the dirty and hungry street dogs.
