Dogs of the Bodrum Peninsula

Bodrum Peninsula Street Dog, Turkey

Dogs of the Bodrum Peninsula

When you visit the Bodrum Peninsula, you’ll undoubtedly come across a Dog or two – sometimes they’re street dogs and other times they’re just pets, out for a wander.

They roam around the towns, villages and beaches like they own the place, but the majority of the time, they’re happy to interact, are home-grown softies – and are prone to napping anywhere!

I’ve started amassing a small collection of Dog photo’s from my various trips around the peninsula, and from other people who have visited the area.

I’ll update this page each time I receive a new “Dog” photo.  If you’ve captured a dog with your camera lens during your trip to Turkey, add a comment below with a link to the image, or send it to me the photo in an email, so I can feature it here.

To give this little puppy his due, it was quite early in the morning when we stopped by to visit the Bodrum Golf club in Ortakent, and obviously his shift as a guard dog hadn’t started yet!  Photo by Roving Jay.

Hugging the curb at Turgutreis Dolmus Station

Near Migros in Gumuskaya

Gumusluk Bodrum Peninsula Street Dog, Turkey

I was taking side-of-the road photographs and this dog was intrigued by my activity and wanted to join in, but he looked too mean to get near, because of his David Bowie eyes.  But I shouldn’t have judged by first impressions – he was a right softie, and followed me for miles – I guess he just wanted some company.  Photo by Roving Jay.
