Stray dogs are very common in Santiago, Chile. You are sure to run into one every time you walk outside. All of them seem very well kept, people constantly feed them and give them water so they don’t usually go hungry. I’ve even spotted dog houses left outside for them with bowls of food and water inside. They are very calm around people and amongst each other, they’ll come lay by your feet with no hesitation. They’re almost always on the streets, in parks, in front of businesses laying with their legs out. Some people in Chile even say the strays are fed more and can be healthier than house animals.
