A very nice little book.
It’s based on a true story of the Red Dog who lived in the 70s in Australia. The only characters in the book who are real are John and the Red Dog.
I don’t remember the last time I read a book with an animal as the main character. The first three chapters were a bit slow, but then the dog’s adventures started and it became a lot more interesting. I loved reading about the people he met.
Some of them couldn’t stand him at first, but, despite his flaws, he won them over. There are quite a few funny scenes and some really sad ones (the ending…).
