Overview


Do you want to dump your dog because he tries to escape your yard? Barks too much? You-know-whats in the house? Doesn’t play well with others? Chewed up your favorite pair of shoes?

You wouldn’t be the first person asking to “return” your pet. And dog rescuer Randy Grim has heard every reason under the sun. But before you load Fido into the back of your car, read this book.

In it, Randy addresses the concerns of dog guardians everywhere by responding to letters that he’s actually received. With humor, and from his vast experiences with abandoned dogs, he reveals exactly what you can do to remain calm and fix every bad behavior problem. (Even if it means dumping your husband instead of the dog.)

    Whats interesting is..

    I read Travels With Casey in which the author goes on a cross-country journey with his dog and in the book he joined this author in catching stray dogs. You see this author's view of himself as well as the othee author. Both are great books. Worth reading even if you would never dump your dog. I have a feeling doglovers are the greater demographic to read this book anyway.
