This book is a bunch of short stories about dogs that were adopted through petfinder. Being that I found 1 of my 2 rescues through petfinder I may be partial to this book, but I really felt that it was a short easy read. A feel good book for everyone, and a reminder that sometimes you can find the best dogs at a shelter.
I am a HUGE animal lover. Having two animals (a cat, from a store, and a dog, rescued from a kennel), I saw this book, and knew I had to read it. I am only starting it, and I KNOW I am going to love it. Read about some TRULY inspiring stories of Dog Adoption, and see how truly amazing the bond between animals and humans really is!
A very well documented book about dogs adopted through Petfinder.com. A must read for anyone who has ever adopted a dog.
