Every year, millions of dogs are abandoned—at animal shelters, racetracks, or on the side of the road.
Many of these animals end their days without ever knowing a caring human hand, but some are fortunate enough to be found and given a second chance. And these dogs, often rescued from death’s door, seem to have even more than the usual canine capacity for love and loyalty.
Found Dogs is full of wonderful photos and words by people who have adopted dogs in myriad ways. Celebrities from Peter Mayle, Jamie Lee Curtis, Al Gore, and Bobby Short to everyday heroes who have found dogs--from purebreds to scruffy mix-breeds--that have become service dogs, protectors, and friends, offering solace, aid, companionship, and inspiration.
Found Dogs is a moving tribute to the power of love between people and dogs--how that love has transformed dogs who were lost, and the people who were lucky enough to find them.
This book benefits Dorothy Shaw, a dog who was saved from a meat farm just in the nick of time! She made the trip all the way from Asia to Motley Zoo where we will help her learn to trust and love humans.
Reviews (as seen on Amazon):
"For those of us who find dogs often more interesting and compassionate than people, this is a must-read. It isn't mushy or corny, just filled with loving stories about great dogs and their friends. You won't be disappointed."- F. Waterloo
"...This is a terrific book for anyone who has adopted a rescued dog (or is thinking about it). It gives wonderful inspiration!"- M. Jensen
