There is a race in Madrid, Spain. The race is for dogs and their owners. 700 dogs and their owners go to the race. The dog owners want more rights. They also want to help many types of dogs.

Many dog owners want to take their dogs on the subway. Right now, they cannot.

People want help for dogs that other people didn’t keep. They also want help for rescue dogs and for dogs with disabilities. One woman brings her dog to the race. He has a disability. She is happy to help her dog and the other dogs.

Difficult words: owner (a person who has something), right (something that you can do), subway (underground train), rescue dogs (dogs that save people), disability (when someone has a problem with his or her body and needs help).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
