About the book

Meet the inspirational dogs who went from being rescued to becoming rescuer, in these incredible true stories.

You’ll read all about…

  • Toby, the golden retriever who performed the Heimlich manoeuvre to save his owner’s life
  • Liam, the Lhaso Apso–Poodle mix who helped his owner battle an eating disorder
  • Hercules, the St Bernard who saved his owners from burglars on the first day he moved in
  • Alfie, the terrier who gave a bullied girl a new lease of life

… as well as many other canine heroes who came to their owner’s aid – whether it was saving them from physical threats, or helping them to recover from mental illness, PTSD and bereavement.

These remarkable dogs all repaid the love and appreciation that their owners displayed in rescuing them. Let these uplifting stories warm your heart, and show you that adopted dogs truly are man’s best friend.
