Owen-known to his family as “little buddy” or “Little B”-has a rare genetic disorder that leaves him largely confined to a wheelchair. Before being united with Haatchi, Little B was anxious and found it difficult to make friends.
Haatchi-an adorable Anatolian Shepherd puppy-was abused and left for dead on railroad tracks. He was struck by an oncoming train, and although his life was saved, his leg and tail were partially severed. Haatchi was left massively disabled and totally dispirited.
But kind-hearted Will and Colleen Howkins, Little B’s father and step-mother, decided to introduce the big dog and the little boy to each other, and an unbelievable bond was formed that transformed both boy and dog in miraculous ways.
Saturday Situation is put on by Pure Imagination. It is were we review our latest reads. Be sure to check out theirs as well.
This was a very hard book to read. Even though the story of Peter and all the other volunteers that tirelessly work to get dogs out of kill shelters in the south and safe in the north is inspiring and heroic, the huge number of dogs that are abused, abandoned, and euthanized in the south is staggering! These statistics are mentioned many times throughout the book as Peter and the author visit various shelters and their volunteers on their travels. If you are interested in any type of rescue work, I highly recommend this book. It is full of great advice and heart warming stories among tragic stories.
This book interested me because I have done some dog fostering before. There is also great advice in this book about rescue work. The author does a great job of being open and honest about her successes and failures as a foster parent to dogs and puppies. She talks about how having these dogs come and go in her house affected not only herself, her three teenage kids, and husband, but also their resident dog, Gracie. These are all things to consider before fostering animals. Overall, this a great book with mostly happy endings and funny moments as the family deals with having sometimes up to 12 puppies in their house. If you are thinking about fostering, this is a great read.
