From the award-winning author Peg Kehret comes a collection of true stories about the amazing lives of eight shelter dogs. Many of these dogs were unwanted because of their size, behavior, or medical condition. All of the dogs found owners who loved and cared for them and ultimately helped change their lives in tremendous ways. The dogs have changed the owners' lives, too.

"Animal lovers will enjoy these eight short stories about shelter dogs going on to do great things." —Booklist

Peg Kehret has always loved to write. As a child she wanted to be a writer or a veterinarian. Now she includes animals in most of her books and, when she isn't writing, she helps animal rescue groups. Peg's books have won more than fifty state young reader awards.

Greg Farrar is from Seattle, Washington. His parents gave him his first camera when he was ten years old. After college he started working for newspapers. About the same time he met Peg Kehret and began taking pictures of shelter dogs and cats for her monthly newspaper article about animals who needed new homes. Greg and his wife have three dogs and two cats, all adopted from animal shelters.
