Joining their owners at cafés, bustling markets, sprawling parks, and just about everywhere else, dogs have always had a special place in French life. In The French Dog, bestselling animal photographer Rachael Hale has captured a host of unforgettable dogs- dachshunds poodles, Labradors, bulldogs, and more – in a variety of stunning locations, from stately chateaux, to chic Parisian addresses, to cobblestones streets in quaint villages.


This vibrant photographic exploration of the captivating canines of France also includes an account of Rachael’s experiences of living in her adopted country with her young family. Accented by artwork and quotes from famous, French dog lovers and literary greats, this charming follow-up to Rachael’s popular book The French Cat is one for the dog lover and Francophile in us all.
