My Thoughts
Loved it

This is a wonderful book filled with heart-warming tales about dog and the people they rescue. In each little story, complete with amazing photographs of the dog, you find that sometimes the people need more rescuing than the animal.  The stories that really get to me are the ones about vets and how these dogs help them recover from PTSD.  There is such a calming effect that just having a dog around to pet and it helps people so much in stressful times.  Each dog and person had difficulties to overcome but found a way through each other.
