From the award-winning author Peg Kehret comes a collection of true stories about the amazing lives of eight shelter dogs. Many of these dogs were unwanted because of their size, behavior, or medical condition. All of the dogs found owners who loved and cared for them and ultimately helped change their lives in tremendous ways. The dogs have changed the owners' lives, too. There's Tracker, a mixed breed, who began life as an unwanted puppy, but ended up becoming a movie star. Joey, a German shepherd/mixed breed, became a service dog trained to help a woman with multiple sclerosis. Tyler was just a sweet border collie who couldn't see, but after his owner agreed to pay for eye surgery, he regained his sight completely.
