Sav­ing Sadie: How a Dog That No One Wanted In­spired the World

Modern Dog - - TRAINING - By Joal Derse Dauer with El­iz­a­beth Ri­d­ley

As all proud par­ents of res­cue pups know, our dogs are rarely the only saved; for ev­ery dog in need that’s adopted, a per­son’s life is ir­re­vo­ca­bly changed. Au­thor Joal Derse Dauer knows this first­hand. With three “fur-ba­bies” at home, Joal was not look­ing to add another mem­ber to her fam­ily. But when she saw Sadie the Shep­herd mix, she heard the call; she knew they needed each other. Indis­putably, Sadie needed her—Sadie had been shot in the head and in the back be­fore be­ing left for dead. De­spite be­ing told that Sadie would never walk again, Joal was un­de­terred. Sav­ing Sadie, the re­sul­tant in­spir­ing book that chron­i­cles their jour­ney, is a tri­umphant tale of se­cond chances that shows how pa­tience, hope, com­pas­sion, and love can truly trans­form lives. Highly rec­om­mended.
