More About the Author
When I was twelve, I was paralyzed with polio. I made almost a full recovery but I remember that time of my life so clearly that it's easy for me to write from the viewpoint of a twelve or thirteen-year-old.
I'm always thrilled when one of my books wins a state young reader award, because I know those awards are voted on by children.
I am a widow who was married for 48 years. I have two grown children and four grandchildren. I live on a small wildlife sanctuary near Mt. Rainier National Park and I often have deer and elk in my yard.

The book is about dogs getting adopted. The dogs did amazing things. One dog almost died but a word saved his life. One other dog was a champion that nobody wanted. Everyone should read this book because it is interesting, amazing, and has weird things.
You can relate to being rescued in shelter dogs. 2 people were deaf, had a fire, and the dog saved them. Every time before the person had a seizure the dog barked. A dog helped another dog that was blind. A dog was house trained to help someone.
You can relate to the characters in Shelter Dogs. The characters have problems. The dogs try helping the problems. There is one who helped with seizures. Most families were happy with their dog.
It takes you to different places in Shelter Dogs. In the Humane Society is where the dogs were. Some dogs were brought back here. In houses where dogs went when adopted. Some were adopted by Human Society.
Overall this book was a great book. I would rate it an 8. You can relate to the most of the dogs. I learned a lot from this book. I hope you will learn lots from this book too.
I liked this book because it taught lessons on responsibility, trust, and courage. I would recommend this book to others because if you're a dog lover you'll like it. It teaches good lessons about being nice to animals. My favorite story was about a dog named Zorro. Zorro was a very big dog with a lot of energy. He had something called kennel cough. Zorro was a very loving and caring dog and thats what I liked.
