“Read this book and share it widely…Angel Dogs with a Mission will change your life and the lives of those with whom you share it”- Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals
Between the pages of Angel Dogs with a Mission, you’ll meet dogs who have saved the lives of animals and people, given hope to troubled teenagers, brought joy and consolation to people who were injured, and became indispensable partners and fellow teachers.
Allen and Linda Anderson, bestselling authors of Angel Dogs and founders of the Angel Animals Network have assembled an amazing collection of stories of “working dogs”- dogs who have discovered ways to give back more than sloppy kisses and happy snuggles to the people around them (though they do that too). These, dogs, many of them misused or abandoned animals, have created work that offers much, much more to others than they receive. While missions, callings, vocations, and purposes are words usually associated with humans, these stories profile dogs who give selflessly.
Here you’ll meet:
Keno, the rescue dog trained to work in avalanches, who found a ski resort worker and saved his life – just in the nick of time. Zoom, the Welsh Corgi who didn’t like being in dog shows but helped special needs children in rural Kentucky improve their reading scores (as reported in USA Today). Now, all the kids want T-shirts trumpeting: “I’m a Zoom Kid!” Abdul, the first-ever certified service dog for a person with disabilities who changed – and vastly improved – Kerrill Hardy’s life (and eventually paved the way for other service dogs for people living with disabilities)
