Description
Praise for Ken Foster's previous book "Dog Culture: "If you love dogs, you'll come away from this book loving them even more."--"The San Francisco Chronicle "Intelligent and witty . . . [with] a refreshing edge."--"Dog World "Wonderful writing about the emotional geography between dogs and people."--Jon Katz From a border collie at a shopping mall to a pit bull in a Mississippi truck stop, The Dogs Who Found Me recounts the stories of a dozen dogs who chose author Ken Foster to rescue them. Initially reluctant, Foster set a four-hour time limit for placing the first strange dog he brought into his New York City apartment, only to discover that this would be the first of many dogs who would seemingly choose him to lead them, one way or another, to their new home. In addition to the personal stories, The Dogs Who Found Me offers expert advice and answers the essential questions: How should you approach an abandoned dog? How do you integrate a temporary animal guest into your household? What resources are available in your area? Are some dogs beyond rescue? Why do some dogs fear your help? Should we ever give up on a dog?
