Who doesn’t love a dog? And who does a dog not love in return? Almost no one—or no creature—it turns out. UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIPS®: DOGS: 37 Stories of Canine Compassion and Courage (Workman; August 2016), by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer S. Holland, is an irresistible reminder of the affection and bravery of all breeds great and small. Bringing together 28 new stories of canine kindness, plus a handful of classic tales involving dogs from Unlikely Friendships, Unlikely Loves, and Unlikely Heroes, these heartwarming true stories will have you falling in love with man’s best friend all over again.

 

Meet Rex, a German shepherd who learned to love and trust again through the improbable friendship of a goose. Popeye the Mastiff, who ran into a burning stable and saved 17 terrified horses by nibbling at their hooves. And a temperamental husky named Lilo, who saved a kitten from near death. These are just some of the remarkable stories you’ll find in UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIPS: DOGS.

>Jennifer S. Holland’s devotion to all species sent her on a journey to discover everything she could about the animal world. As a writer for National Geographic, she became increasingly interested in animal relationships, searching the globe for unusual animal connections—first in the form of friendships, then loves, then heroes. And now, for the first time, Jennifer is bringing together her favorite stories about one of the most beloved animals: the dog.

Filled with beautiful full-color photographs, the true stories of camaraderie, affection, and remarkable bravery found in UNLIKELY FREINDSHIPS: DOGS are more than a lovely tribute;   they are proof that the dog is every creature’s best friend.                                                      Photo Credit: The Bui sisters/IMP FEATURES
