From Akitas to Weimaraners,
from Florida to Oregon,
"That Dog Won't Hunt!" includes ten true dog rescue stories.
Bo, the buck-toothed
Beagle, is the cover dog. Rescued by Triangle
Beagle Rescue of NC from a local shelter, Bo was surrendered
to the shelter by his owner, a hunter, because he wouldn't hunt.
Bongo, as he is now known, is living the good life as a totally
Bo's story is just one of ten stories
of dogs saved by rescue groups. I have included not only breed specific
rescue groups, but also non-breed specific groups.
The dogs featured in
the book are: Daisy, an English Bulldog from Operation
K9 Rescue in California; Jefferson, a mixed breed lab and basset
hound from Second
Chance Pet Adoption in North Carolina; Samson, an Akita from
Western Great Lakes
Akita Rescue in Wisconsin; Red Bull, a pit bull from Animals
at Risk Care Sanctuary in California; Buddy, a lab from LABMED
in Florida; Dodger, a greyhound from Second
Chance for Greyhounds in Michigan; Whitney, a German Shepherd
Stone German Shepherd Rescue in Kentucky; Paul, a Weimaraner
Rain Weimaraner in Oregon; and lastly Brandy, a Bullmastiff
Bullmastiff Association Rescue in New Jersey.
As I did with my first book,
I will give 30% of the sale of the book back to rescue groups or
message is loud and clear: these "recycled dogs" bring
great joy to their new families.
We also extol the value of
a good belly rub.
