"The animal rescue culture is one of the most fascinating sub-cultures in American life, and Amy Sutherland explores it with honesty, humor, and great insight. This is not another sappy book about saving animals, but a valuable journey into the best spirit of this extraordinary new movement." - Jon Katz, author of TALKING TO ANIMALS


Terrified Penny Jane, brassy but filthy Dixie Lou, tough-guy Dingo and the crazed, nippy jester, Walter Joe. These are not your average cute-and-cared-for, well-trained pups, these are shelter dogs - they are scared, aggressive, so painfully shy that they can't look you in the eye, and have languished so long without attention that they are slipping into a dark place, one where they will no longer be able to bond with people.



Best-selling author Amy Sutherland started walking shelter dogs in 2001 and is a member of the elite corps of volunteers at Boston's Animal Rescue League, where she helped train dogs with serious behavior problems. In Rescuing Penny Jane, Amy tells the story of her adventures working at a shelter, helping dozens of dogs discover that the right person can give them love, hope and a whole new life - and adopting two rescue puppies of her own. Alongside Amy's touching, funny and insightful stories, dog owners will find a wealth of practical tips, such as how to read a dog's body language, handle behavior problems and select a shelter dog.



A humorous, affecting portrait of the relationships between shelter dogs and their rescuers, Rescuing Penny Jane is a book that dog lovers everywhere will take to heart and treasure.
