Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
In the early 1900s a famous female German Shepherd named Buddy became the first seeing eye dog for Morris Frank. Later, this breed took on many roles including those of police dogs, search-and-rescue dogs, and military dogs due to their keen sense of sight and smell. Like many large dogs, their origins trace back to Germany. Multiple real life photographs show the story of how these animals play a key part of our history, and the heart shaped dog tags placed throughout the book provide even more incredible facts. Fire hydrants with the page numbers provide a kid friendly look to the book. At the back of the book there is a glossary that defines the bold-faced words found throughout the book. Discover all the statistics about German Shepherds on page 28. This book is part of the "Big Dogs Rule" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
