In the heart of Kosovo, a litter of puppies is born, and among them, one is a spitting image of the legendary Illyrian Sheepdogs: Lyri. The pride and joy of an Illyrian is protecting a flock of sheep from wolves, bears, and even lynxes. However, young Lyri does not climb majestic mountains but instead mounds of waste. Lyri faces numerous trials in a rapidly changing world as he matures from a puppy into a young dog. His heritage and pack's traditions give him the tenacity and vigor needed to cope with the challenges of being a free dog.
THE LAST FREE DOG is an all-ages graphic novel that reimagines the lives of stray dogs in the Balkans and similar places worldwide. Readers delve into the experiences of these free dogs and discover efforts to combat pollution, preserve the environment, and aid the stray animal population. Through this tale, children, leaders, and individuals of all backgrounds can engage with vital issues such as pollution and the animal rights challenges in this region.
