The Shelter Dog
8 x 6 1/2 Jacketed Hardcover
Hero was having a perfect day, flying through the heavens with the other angel dogs. Perfect, that is, until he asked the Shelter Angel, who watches over all the animals that are up for adoption, if he could go back to earth and become a shelter dog. After all, he thought, what could be better than having a very special person choose you – out of all the other dogs – to come home and live with them?
As Hero is about to find out, things don’t always turn out the way you plan. Sometimes they turn out better!
Filled with beautiful illustrations, this simple book tells the story of an angel dog who comes back to earth to experience the joy of being adopted. But will anyone be able to see how extraordinary this old shelter dog, with the wobbly back leg, really is?

The Story of The Shelter Dog
For author Christine Davis, writing a book about a shelter dog was inevitable.
“One of the happiest days of my life,” she says, “was the day I found my dog, Jake, at the local animal shelter. He proved what anyone who shares their life with a dog already knows…dogs are wondrous beings, made from love, fur…and a little bit of angel.
Jake now flies through the heavens, while Hero romps happily through the pages of my book. Both of these joyous creatures inspired me with their soaring spirits and hopeful hearts. It is to them, and to all the loving critters waiting in animal shelters for their forever families to find them, that I dedicate this book.
And to all the special people who care for animals in need…a heartfelt thank you! Whether you work alone, or with shelters or rescue groups, you are truly angels.”
Be a HERO – open your heart and home to a shelter animal.
