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