True Stories of Canine CourageBook - 2009
Swansea Jack, the Labrador who saved more than 25 people from drowning. Maya, the pit bull who defended her owner from a brutal attack. Max, the police German shepherd who chased and caught two convicted criminals. Connie, the Newfoundland who cares for her disabled owner. These are just a few of the incredible canine characters whose true stories are recounted in this inspiring collection of dog tales. Hounds from all walks of life are united within these pages in the search for the world's most devoted dogs. Heart-melting, dramatic and often deeply moving, "Dog Heroes" champions the often underestimated role of man's best friend and gives a unique insight into the lives of both working dogs and personal companions. Each loyal dog has its own story to tell and each owner or handler has individual reasons for loving them, but these dogs have one thing in common: they are all truly dog heroes.
