In this heartwarming collection of stories, readers meet 38 incredible dogs who have gone above and beyond the job description of best friend. Each uplifting story provides an inspiring look at the animals who change our lives. Meet rescue dogs who learn to serve others, working dogs who go beyond the call of duty, and underdogs who surmount extraordinary challenges on the road to finding their forever home. This treasury of man's best friend features photographs and personal anecdotes from those who have been touched by the selfless love of a beloved pet.

Readers will be inspired by... * Extraordinary reunions- A dog is rescued from Aleppo, Syria, and reunited with his family in Canada, where they had relocated in 2015 after a missile destroyed their home. * Friendships meant to be- When a prosthetics clinic scheduled appointments for 9-year-old Avery and shelter puppy Hattie Mae on the same day, a fateful encounter leads to a lifelong friendship built on combatting disability.

* Heroic acts- Shaya, a crime-fighting dog trained to track illegal poachers, hurt his leg chasing an injured rhino. The leg had to be amputated, but Shaya goes right back to work protecting animals. * True devotion- As he was participating in China's Four Deserts Gobi March, a six-day foot race, Dion Leonard met a dedicated pup who accompanied him for about 120 miles. Afterward, he decides to adopt the dog. <

I could easily have read this book in a single sitting, but I enjoyed it so much that I was reluctant to reach the end. Instead, I read a few stories each day for a week...drawing it out as long as I could. I have no doubt that I'll pull this one off the shelf many times in the future, just so I can fall in love with these dogs all over again. - The Geeky Bibliophile All I can say is she certainly had my heartstrings in knots and really, what extraordinary tales! I probably cried when I read like 97% of these stories. They were beautiful, inspiring and really amazing. I could see giving this as a gift to someone with a new puppy! (Do they have showers for new dog moms? They should!) OH! And if you need names for a new furry family member, there are some definite winners here! Some of these stories are heartbreaking. Others are heartwarming. All, however, are full of soft fur, big eyes, and feet that, I'm pretty sure, all smell like corn chips. This is a book of 35 inspirational dog stories. They all touched me deeply and I loved every one. -I'd Rather be at the Beach If you are a dog lover, then you will definitely love this book. I can't tell you how much these dogs will melt your heart...For all you dog lovers out there, grab this one for your collection. I knew I'd love it and that it would make it cry. It did all of that...If you, like me, love dogs and wonder how we lucked out to have them as our best friends, you will love this book.
