Saving Sadie
How a Dog That No One Wanted Inspired the World
"An uplifting story with tremendous heart. I couldn't put it down."
Helen Brown

Joal Derse Dauer was donating blankets at a local no-kill shelter when an injured and despondent dog caught her eye. With three "fur babies" already at home, Joal wasn't looking to adopt another dog. But there was something special about Sadie . . .

With patience, hope, and plenty of love, Joal saw her canine companion grow in strength and joy. And before long, she discovered that sweet Sadie had transformed her life in ways she never could have imagined.

Joyous and inspiring, Saving Sadie is a triumphant story about the power of unconditional love and second chances—for humans and animals alike.

"A triumphant tale of second chances that shows how patience, hope, compassion and love can truly transform lives." —Modern Dog

"I fell in love with Sadie as you will, too."—Fern Michaels

"Saving Sadie will lift your spirit and open your heart. A must-read."—Jodee Blanco

"What a wonderful book—moving and inspirational, touching and heartwarming."
—Sue Pethick
