Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Elise Lufkin and Diana Walker once again present a moving collection of profiles, in beautiful, duotone photographs and moving text, of dogs that have found new lives after being throw away dogs. Each dog (and one cat) profiled has had a rough past, suffering abuse or extreme neglect at the hands of humans. Some dogs featured here have become therapy dogs for hospitals and nursing homes; reading partners for children; friends to at-risk teens and the injured in veterans affairs hospitals; service dogs for the deaf and blind; arson dogs; and even search-and-rescue dogs. Some of these special dogs are disabled, blind, deaf, missing limbs, but they don t seem to know it. These spunky, happy animals have repaid the kindness of their rescuers in spades, bringing the therapy of love to people in need, sometimes even saving lives.

Review by Library Journal (2009-10-15)

Those of us who have rescued dogs know that the dogs finally rescue us, something Lufkin has already detailed in two moving compilations, Found Dogs and Second Chances. Her new book goes one step further, chronicling formerly abused or abandoned canines now doing service-performing search and rescues (SAR), helping the blind or wheelchair-bound, and bringing joy while visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons. Each dog gets his or her own story, illustrated with an affecting black-and-white shot, and the stories are all remarkable.

Bailey was nearly dead from starvation when rescued but is now certified for SAR, doing his first big job at the Pentagon after 9/11. Amputee Gracie helps soldiers at the Walter Reed Hospital, and Marvin, who was literally on the table to be euthanized, is now the Rhode Island SPCA's mascot and travels regularly to hospitals, day-care centers, and, yes, libraries.

Verdict: Not just for dog lovers, this book should be read by anyone giving or needing care-you'll get hope and answers. Read it and be humbled.
