The author, a professional dog trainer and behavioral consultant, shares the heartwarming story of her dog Boo, the runt of an abandoned litter, who became an unlikely hero when he changed countless lives including hers, through his work as a therapy dog.

Harlequin


She thought she was rescuing an abandoned puppy.
Turns out, he was rescuing her.


The last thing Lisa Edwards needed was a new dog. But when she came across an abandoned litter on Halloween, her heart went out to the runt who walked into walls and couldn't steady his feet. Lisa—healing from past abuse and battling constant pain from a chronic medical condition—saw a bit of herself in little Boo. And when he snuggled, helpless, against her, she knew he was meant to be hers.

The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a clumsy gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. Yet with his unflappable spirit and boundless love, Boo has changed countless lives through his work as a therapy dog—helping a mute six-year-old boy to speak, coaxing movement from a paralyzed girl and stirring life in a ninety-four-year-old nun with Alzheimer's. But perhaps Boo's greatest miracle is the way he transformed Lisa's life, giving her the greatest gift of all—faith in herself.

This is the inspiring true story of "the little dog who could," but more than that, it's the story of how one woman and one dog rescued each other—a moving tribute to hope, resilience and the transformative power of unconditional love.

A good story which I quite enjoyed. Not too sappy, though there are difficulties to overcome the story is not a pitty party. Interesting life story of a woman training 'helping dogs'. Very interesting.
