The Second Chance Dog - A Love Story was wonderful! I loved it. I think it probably helps to have read some of Jon Katz previous books to get the full understanding of the story. But it is so well written I can see a newcomer to Jon Katz would love it too. He is a true story teller, and of course a lover of dogs and all animals. This story is so honest and sweet and especially lovely before Christmas. As Jon said, it really is a Christmas miracle!.

This book is a memoir about Jon, Maria and Freida the dog  all looking for second chances at a better life and love The story is sweet and uplifting.  I love animals, so, I'm a sucker for any success story involving a wayword, dog.  A dog most would have given up on.  Despite the repetition in the book, it is a good read and quite enjoyable.

I loved this book! I have read books written by Jon Katz for years and this book is one of his best. Jon writes from his heart and soul and you can feel it in the pages, I didn't want to put the book down. I didn't want it to end either. The story revolves around Jon meeting the love of his life, Maria, and Marie's dog, Frieda. Frieda has lived a very harsh life and she hates everyone but Maria. Jon has to devise a way of relating to Frieda in order to win Maria's heart. This book will appeal to people of all ages, especially those who believe in second chances for people as well as animals. It is a perfect Christmas gift since it ends happily on Christmas Eve.

Very disappointing. Not particularly well-written, compared to Mr. Coren's other books. I live with 3 dogs and own and have read many of Mr. Coren's other books — all of which have been most helpful. I thought this book would be about dogs, but it isn't — at least not really. It is about Mr. Coren's developing relationship with the woman who became his second wife. I found it to be rather boring; i found myself skimming and hoping for things to get better. They didn't. However, I highly recommend Mr. Coren's other books, which are excellent.

If by chance I get to live a second life, let it be at Bedlam Farm

Loved the book. I laughed. I cried. Big believer in giving dogs that second chance. Was very interested in the evolving methods to connect with the dog.

Found this just lookin. I like animal stories. This is a love story. Frieda was a shelter dog the best kind. When your dog fds you,you know. Somehow you get the one for you. i have adopted two kittens. They are so much fun I got a twofer. My adopted shelter dog loves them. Good story easy read.
