  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “A Hong Kong golden retriever’s journey from abandoned dog to neighbourhood star” – below is their description.

    When Sprite was abandoned almost two years ago in Hong Kong, she was an old dog suffering from severe health issues. Her life was turned around after a couple running a local variety store adopted her. With the care from her new family, she survived a major surgery to remove her gallbladder, and her health has improved significantly since. Now the 12-year-old golden retriever has become a neighbourhood star with her daily routine of going around the block asking for food.

    In This Story: Hong Kong

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
