I hadn't heard of this book yet. I'm always looking for more good dog books. Thanks for the review!

I know what it's like to rescue with good intentions but no idea what I'm in for. I needed a book like that years ago!


Of course, many of us adopted shelter dogs over the years without any real idea of what we were getting into. And it's a good thing too!

If we'd known what was ahead we would have never adopted. And never gotten the amazing rewards.


This sounds like a good book. It is not easy to adopt an older dog from a shelter when the dog's background is hazy. I adopted one who the SPCA told me was around seven years old. When I took him to the Vet, he said the dog was over the age of ten. By that time, I had already gotten attached to old Boo, who lived with me for another three years before he succumbed to various old age diseases. xx


I wouldn't give HSUS or Peta the time of day.


My pit niece is a rescue dog and she's turned out to be a great dog. We know because when my sister & b-i-l take their frequent trips, we are her second family. She loves our family and she loves our dogs. She fits right in and is an awfully sweet dog.
