Publisher's Summary

Discover the astonishing lessons rescue dogs can teach us about life, love, and ourselves

In the follow-up to his New York Times best seller Rescue Road, acclaimed journalist Peter Zheutlin offers a heartwarming and often humorous new look into the world of rescue dogs. Sharing lessons from his own experiences adopting Labs with large personalities as well as stories and advice from dozens of families and rescue advocates, Zheutlin reveals the surprising and inspiring life lessons rescue dogs can teach us, such as:

  • How to "walk a mile in a dog's paws" to get a brand-new perspective
  • Living with a dog is not one continuous Hallmark moment - but it's never dull!
  • Why having a dog helps you see your faults and quirks in a new light, even if you can't "shed" them completely
  • How to set the world right, one dog at a time

For anyone who loves, lives with, or has ever wanted a dog, this charming book shows how the dogs whose lives we save can change ours for the better, too.

Made me want to adopt a dog

Loved this book!!!! It wasn’t so much about the trials of dealing with an adopted dog as it was about why people adopt. He gave full insight on how the dog must feel each step of the way through the adoption process and how important it is for the human to care about those feelings
