About Janie Nugent
Janie Nugent always loved to write and wrote poems, stories, songs and plays in school. After her family adopted Doug, she decided to tell his story in "A Dog for Michael: Doug to the Rescue". The idea was to raise funds for animal rescue shelters and share the joy of adopting adult dogs. While reading the book to children at schools and book events, it became clear that Doug "D-Pug" was a popular character. Her second book "D-Pug in New York" follows Doug and Michael after they moved to New York City. This book will also use proceeds to support animal rescue and copies will be given to schools. Janie has loved writing the books and sharing the story with children and their families.

A Dog for Michael: Doug to the Rescue May 9, 2016
by Janie Nugent
Adopt a rescue dog and change both your lives! Doug was eight years old when he arrived at a rescue facility, confused and scared. His owner had passed away, and her final wish was for Doug to have another loving family. She had raised and loved him since he was a five-week-old puppy and knew he would make another family as happy as he had made her. When eight-year-old Michael and his family adopted Doug from the shelter, a happy new chapter of his life began! A Dog for Michael is the true story of Doug’s adoption and his new life. Anyone who spent time with Doug fell in love with this sweet, funny, and joyful dog. He has traveled throughout the USA with Michael and made friends in every city and town he visited. Many people have been motivated to adopt adult dogs after getting to know him. Shelter dogs are desperate for a home, and adult dogs make wonderful companions. If you can’t adopt, consider supporting your local adoption facility, either financially or by volunteering—you will make a difference in the lives of the animals and the generous, committed people who run these organizations.
