The chucho is part of the Guatemalan landscape

Rudy Giron: &emdash;

Honestly, I can not think of the Guatemalan landscape without the omnipresent chucho; that’s what we call the mutt or street dog in Guatemala and in Mesoamerica in general.

Tell me, if you have visited Guatemala in the past, could you imagine the landscape without the mutts roaming the streets of every little town?

Can you guess where was this photograph taken?

    Do people care for the street dogs or are they abused and starving?

    • Hi Sarah, some, very few, people do. Most don’t care for street dogs. In fact, I believe that reason we have a demographic explosion of street dogs is because religion and culture get in the way of responsibility.
