Dogs who Found Me

by Raech on Nov 1, 2007

Most of us probably don't notice a stray dog wandering on the street, or care when neighbors move away and leave their dog behind. Not Ken Foster. He notices when lost dogs are in need, and takes them in, regardless of the inconvenience. In this heartwarming and frankly presented book, Foster tells of his experiences rescuing dogs off the street, caring for them and trying to find them homes. Many of them are pit bulls or similar breeds, so he addresses some of the issues with those types of dogs. Interspersed with the narrative are some helpful and sometimes wryly sarcastic lists on topics like "how to loose your best friend" (a dog), "how to read a dog" and "how to prepare for the unexpected" (disasters, as Foster discusses impacts of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina on his life and the dogs). There is a lot of good advice on how to deal with strange dogs and negotiate rescues and re-homing. A very interesting book, with many particularly apt observations on the human/dog relationship in the modern world.

For any person who loves animals!

This book tells of Mr. Foster's experiences with homeless dogs and dogs whose owners abandoned them. He uses a touch of humor along with the seriousness of the problems he encounters in caring for the dogs. I'm going to recommend this book to our group we are forming to better our county animal shelter because it offers excellent examples of fostering dogs until homes can be found for them and how communication lines can help find their new homes.
