Terrified Penny Jane; brassy but filthy Dixie Lou; tough-guy Dingo; and the crazed, nippy jester, Walter Joe. These are not your average cute-and-cared-for, well-trained pups -- these are shelter dogs. Scared, aggressive, so painfully shy that they can't look you in the eye, they have languished so long without attention that they are slipping into a dark place, and soon will no longer be able to bond with people.

I saw this while browsing at the library and really wanted to read it in regular print. But they did not have it right then so I took home the large print and began to devour this book! What a great read. Maybe because it was large print, but I couldn't put it down and finished it in 24 hours! I loved hearing about all her tales with the dogs she interacted tough it got sometimes even with a supportive husband....but what a huge difference she and so many have made. Has given me serious thought to volunteering at our local shelters. They have come such a long way and our dogs and cats deserve a loving home! Pick this up! You won't cry but you will cheer and feel right along with her. For anyone who loves dogs this is a must read!
