I'm a sucker for a good animal story, and this is a pretty good one. Extra points go to it because most of the dogs the couple rescued through the book are German Shepherds (A.K.A. Alsatians) which are one of my favourite breeds! <3

Barrie and Dorothy Hawkins live in England, and the two of them make the decision after their dog passes away that they will take in foster & rescue dogs to take care of and find homes for. The book follows their adventures during the first 18 months of their j

Very entertaining.

Enjoyable read. Loved the couple who made this commitment to dogs.
Jami and I read this together. It makes you laugh, cry, and want to bring home all the needy dogs out there. It's a great read for anyone who is interested in fostering dogs or adopting dogs.
How could a story about a couple rescuing dogs be anything but heart warming? The German Shepherds in this book are all deserving of love and 2nd chances and I wish I could hug them all.
Reminiscent of James Herriot's books. Written in an easy going conversational style, this book is uplifting, heart-warming & fun!
Delightful true story of a lovely couple who started foster mainly German Shepherds. Quick, uplifting read.
A relaxing, fun read about a couple that becomes a foster home for dogs.
This is an incredibly sweet book! Highly recommended to dog lovers everywhere!
