Lisa smiled as we walked back into the warmth of reception. "Bet you've found something you like, haven't you?" she said with a knowing look in her eyes. "Maybe," Juliet replied. "What can you tell us about the little dog in the stables, the one under the heat lamp?"
The little dog that Author Brian Porter is talking about is Sheba. She was underweight, her hair had been shaved off. She had skin abrasions and deep ligature marks around her neck. She had been thrown on a rubbish pile and was barely alive. The cause of these injuries - she had been used as bait to train fighting dogs.
I'm an avid animal lover, especially dogs. I've always had one and can't imagine my life without one of my best friends. When I started reading this book I couldn't stop the tears and the anger that would build up inside me. How can anyone be so inhumane?
I've read all of Author Brian Porter's books about the dogs he has rescued and I can't say enough about the kind heart he, his wife and daughters all have. In my book, they are all some of the great ones for bringing these babies out of their living and sometimes dying hell into a beautiful, loving, comfortable life.
If you're a dog lover as I am, this is another one of those books that you simply must read. It will really open your eyes to the cruel life these dogs live just for what some really sick people call a 'sport.' I would love to put them through what they put these loving babies through.
I recommend this book not only to dog lovers but to anyone who enjoys reading about the ability of man to overcome difficulties as the Porters did in loving and caring for this dog, who most people thought would be dead within weeks of them rescuing her. I defy anyone, man or woman, to read this book without feeling a lump in your throat or a tear in your eye. The photos in the book are a testament to the great job the family did in restoring Sheba to health and happiness. Long may she live and enjoy her life with Mr, Porter, his family and their wonderful pack of rescue dogs. and their wonderful pack of rescue dogs.
But then the author and his wife happened to go to that shelter as they have rescue dogs. They saw her, this shivering, malnourished little dog, with wounds for she had been used as a bait dog—and they said they wanted to help.
The shelter warned them that she probably wouldn’t live, but they wanted to care for her at home. To at least surround her with love and the staff there knew that would be a good thing at least.
That’s the gist of this memorable book. It was quite an emotional experience to bear witness to Sheba’s journey from (literally) the jaws of death to happiness and good health in a home where she knows she belongs.
The story is told by an exceptionally gifted author. I felt I was there watching this little dog begin to thrive. It was heart stopping some of it, despite knowing she pulled through. What a tale this is!
There is some humor along with the sadness and the tragedy. The tragedy is that there are those among us who are truly monsters. People involved in dog fighting should be imprisoned for the rest of their natural lives. People knowing about it and doing nothing should keep them company.
As for me, I would just like to say it was an honor to read this book, to learn of Sheba, her new home and siblings and to read about how she was saved. Thank you, Mr. Porter.
