I love a story where there's an underdog. In this case it's an actual dog and his mom, Anita, who adopted him. This book shows how even one person can make a difference, and that sometimes the best things in life are unplanned. An enjoyable read and at 39 pages a nice length. It can be read on a lunch break. Would recommend it to any animal lover.

Who can turn down a story about a sweet Basset Hound? It was a touching story of Rory, the dog who survived being put down. His life changed when he was adopted by a loving and caring woman.

A short but sweet story for all dog lovers!
