Istanbul street dogs

There are, in the small part of own that I have seen, plenty of dogs on the street.


They hang out in parks, and outside restaurants, on the grounds of Topkapi, and generally around open spaces.


They don’t seem to belong to anyone in particular, but some of them have ear tags that, as I understand it, associate them with a particular address.


I saw no evidence of pack behavior, just small groups that had an area where they hung out and other dogs didn’t seem to come into that territory.


When this guy saw me taking his picture,


He gave me a appeasing yawn, so I did him the favor of looking away.

I wonder what these doggies do in the winter.
