EXTRAORDINARY DOGS Inspirational Stories of Dogs with Disabilities JOYCE DARRELL; FOREWORD BY WARREN ECKSTEIN
Auggie appeared to be a klutzy puppy, always bumping into walls. Really, he was born blind and could only see shadows. Emmy Lou, a kind-spirited hunting dog, was shot in an accident and could never use her hind legs again. Jinx, a rambunctious three-legged terrier mix, was abandoned and dumped on the side of the road. Despite the difficult hardships these animals faced, they found families who accepted and loved them unconditionally. Extraordinary Dogs is a compilation of dozens of heartwarming, against-all-odds profiles of dogs with disabilities with an unwavering zest for life. Each dog’s one-of-a- kind story will no doubt win you over, paws down.
Joyce Darrell founded the Pets with Disabilities organization with her husband, Michael. It has been featured on NBC’s Today show, as well as in Prevention and Dog Fancy magazines. The couple lives in Prince Frederick, Maryland.
