In 2002, a tiny, golden puppy was born without one of her front legs. Her other front leg was badly deformed, leaving her unable to walk. The Stringfellow family adopted the puppy and named her Faith. However, they worried that little Faith might never be able to walk on her own. As Faith got older and stronger, the Stringfellows helped her to balance on her hind legs. Eventually, they used peanut butter to coax her to walk all by herself on only two legs! This is just one of the many inspiring stories found in Disabled Dogs. Some dogs, like Faith, are missing legs, while others do not have the ability to see or hear. Whatever the challenge, young readers will be amazed at how these dogs are able to lead full and active lives, and provide hope to people who have similar disabilities. With dramatic, full-color photos of these extra-special canines, this book is sure to warm the hearts of dog lovers everywhere.

Disabled Dogs

These titles feature a well-balanced mix of true stories, complete with names and photographs, and general information useful for reports and understanding the broader canine experience. The first book spotlights dogs with various disabilities, including missing or malfunctioning legs, blindness, and deafness, and how some of them have thrived with help of their owners. The second title looks at the many ways dogs and modern-day soldiers work together, such as military working dogs (MWDs), strays befriended by troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and dogs that help returning service members adapt to life outside the military. Most of these topics are covered in greater detail in other titles, but the combination of personal stories and current affairs gives enough distinction so as not to have too much overlap. Photographs in both titles are enjoyable and show diversity, while simple captions connect them with the text. An aside in Soldiers’ Dogs mentions that “in the past, all retired MWDs were ‘put to sleep,’” but since 2000, people have been allowed to adopt them. These heartening titles will be appreciated by young readers, particularly animal lovers.
