Do you like dogs? If you do, you will love the eight stories in this book. Each story tells the tale of an unwanted stray dog that was left at an animal shelter. The dogs were great companions for their new adoptive owners and went on to do amazing things. One was trained as a service dog and another was adopted by an animal trainer and went on to become a movie star. You'll both gasp and cry as you read these stories, each of which is accompanied by a photo of the dog and his companion  (Jean B.
