The hundreds of dogs roaming Quito’s streets can’t really be called stray. Free might be more appropriate. Well-fed and often well-dressed, they seem happy to go about their day’s business. When I spotted a schnauzer in a collared jacket I literally asked myself, is he off to work? Here are some of the most photogenic furry Quiteños.

And a few scruffy guys who really know how to enjoy life, a little further afield.
