Andrew the Pekinese is a pampered pooch in Palm Springs, USA. He spends his time lounging by the pool, having his fur shampooed and riding in the basket of Colin's bike.
It's paradise, with the exception of a dangerous cactus garden and an annoying cat. But Andrew's almost-perfect life is about to change - they're leaving Palm Springs and crossing thousands of kilometres of ocean to live in New Zealand. What's more, Andrew has to fly on his own and endure being separated from his poppa in quarantine. When he finally arrives at his new home in Wellington, there's not quite the welcome he was hoping for.
Andrew Down Under is the prequel to Toughen Up, Andrew!, set on the Wairarapa coast.
