About the book

This heart-warming and humorous collection of true furry tales follows the highs and lows of Barrie and his wife as they take on the challenge of rescuing large dogs.

After losing his beloved dog, Elsa, Barry can’t face replacing her. But when he accepts a rescue worker’s proposal to become a dog foster parent he doesn’t quite realise what he is letting himself in for.

With every four paws comes a story: the German Shepherd who lived in an abandoned car, the unwanted Christmas puppy, the twelve-year-old dog who’s never been walked or played with. From a four-week old bundle of fluff in a peg bag to the ex-guard dog with a lion’s mane, the husband and wife team welcome them all into their hearts and home.
