Dogs I Have Met And the People they Found - Ken Foster

Book Review - From Publishers Weekly - In this moving sequel to his 2006 bestseller The Dogs Who Found Me, Foster introduces readers to dogs and owners he encountered while promoting his earlier book. In many cases, the dogs had been rescued from death by people who had "decided that they were worth the work of saving," and Foster interweaves their remarkable stories with updates on his own life and the dogs who continue to change his life in surprising ways. The stories are as diverse as the dogs themselves, from a woman who found a pregnant, one-eyed stray in the exact spot where she had been involved in a car crash six years earlier that killed her best friend, to a man certain that his adoption of a pit bull saved him from Hurricane Katrina. Foster concludes with a more detailed look at the animals affected by Katrina's devastation, including a moving tribute to the volunteers who helped give shelter to the dogs of New Orleans. Dog lovers will welcome this new collection of moving and poignant canine stories.

I had read his first book which I loved and he did it again! What a great book about some amazing animals and some amazing people who have rescued, cared for, adopted and/or surrendered animals. After hearing so many bad stories about how animals are treated its nice to read a book dedicated to the people who do no harm and love these dogs unconditionally.
