Pre­sen­ter Pa­trick aryee heads to the Amer­i­cas to show what a ver­sa­tile and well-adapted fam­ily ca­nines are. He be­gins in the north and the beau­ti­ful Arc­tic fox. With fur warmer than a po­lar bear’s, this fluff ball also has a way of keep­ing its paws warm in even the cru­ellest Arc­tic win­ter. Next is the grey fox, the only fox to climb trees, and then Pa­trick hangs out with the ul­ti­mate pack hunter – the grey wolf. But it’s not un­til he hits South Amer­ica that the ca­nine fam­ily’s real odd­balls are re­vealed. One is the bush dog that has the head of a bear but webbed feet like an ot­ter, which makes it well adapted to life in the Ama­zon swamps.
