Awww, I loved this book. As a dog lover who would take in every stray dog if I had my way, I completely related to the author. At times, it reminded me of Marley & Me--the book showed the lighter and fun side of owning a dog. Other times, it broke my heart hearing the stories of dogs who were left behind. It's a great, quick read. It even has some great resources in the back for dog owners.
I loved this book. I grew up in a home where I was taught if I found a stray animal to bring it home and take care of it until it was able to be placed. This trait has continued through out my life. When I see a dog wandering the street I'm the first person who wants to make sure it's safe. I love reading this book about another lady with such a heart similar to mine. A must read for all those folks who take the time to help rescue other people's pets from a life of neglect.
An enjoyable and quick read. I laughed to myself a few times because it seemed as if the author spent quite a bit of time trying to avoid some of the dogs who found him, but that is something most of us who find a lot of animals has done. The author seems authentic and honest and writes the same way. He is never overly sentimental about the animals and is frequently quite honest about the future awaiting some of the unwanted, yet this book has a lot of heart. There is also some good practical advice about dogs; finding them, loving them, helping them. And it will probably change the way you look at pitbulls forever.
A fascinating book. I couldn't put it down! Ken Foster certainly understands the mutual bond between dogs and humans.
Absolutely wonderful. It's a page turner. One of the best books I read this year.
A great book...and I don't particularly care for pit bulls!
great read for any dog lover
I adore this book...any true dog lover must read it. It will make you laugh and make you want to cry.
A nice light read for any dog lover
On the list of my favorites, this book was very heart warming, loved it!
I enjoyed this book for the most part. It makes you think about all those dogs out there that need a home or ones who are out there that are being mistreated. I think it is great what Mr. Foster is doing for all those poor dogs out there. Especially Pit Bulls. I also liked all the informative information on shelters, rescues, etc in the back of the book.
The only problem that I had with the book was the writing style. It wasn't written very evenly and took me longer to get done than usual. All in all it would be a book I recommend.
great book if you love dogs, the author truly does and it is full of good information and good tips for dog owners.
It was a good book with very interesting stories.
If you love dogs, you love this book. We all wish we can be Ken Foster adopting dogs or finding homes for dogs we encounter. He taught me that I can give money for vet bills and still be fostering a dog. Thank you Mr Foster for writing this book.
Excellent story-- grabbed me right away & I couldn't put it down.
