DogTipper Review: Do you have a golden retriever? Are you considering adding one to your family? Or do you just love stories about dogs? The latest book in the Lost Souls: Found! series, each a compilation of stories about rescue dogs, is tailor-made for Golden families but a perfect fit for any dog lover.
This volume of 40-plus stories written by caring fosters and adoptive families chronicles the rescue dogs that brought such a change in their families’ lives. Some stories, like “Santa’s Helpers” tell (from the dog’s perspective) the happy story of going home with a new family to a new life. Others like “Little Time, Big Love” make readers reach for the tissue box, recounting an adoption that was all-too short-lived.
But what each these stories does is to motivate readers to help the many, many animals out there desperately waiting for a home. This book is an inspiration to those work in rescue and those who have added rescue dogs to their families; it would also make a great gift for those who are considering a new dog in their lives–but might not have considered adoption.
Every story in this 140+page book gives readers another reason to adopt. As author David Fresh explains in “That Dog IS Family,” a story about his once-abused Golden, “I’m glad Brook adopted me that day, and my hope is that others get to experience the job of ‘being adopted’ by a special needs dog as well. You’ll never regret it, and your loving pet will always be loyal to you in so many ways.”
You just couldn’t ask for any more than that.
