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.
Even the care from the other dogs are wonderful to read about.
I encourage families to read these wonderful books, and to help or adopt from their local animal shelters.
Thankfully, Brian and Juliet found her, and her Sheba’s life turned a corner. Brian skilfully guides us through the ups and downs that Sheba faced, with just enough information about the abuse this little soul suffered, without being too graphic.
This is a story of bravery, love, courage and determination. It shows what can be achieved with love and patience, which Brian & Juliet have in bucket loads!
There are many happy moments shared in Sheba’s story too. I particularly like the song that Brian and his daughter composed about her, and the special relationship she has with Sasha and the rest of the family.
I cannot and never will understand how any human being can commit such atrocities against another living creature, especially one so trusting and loyal. Get yourself a box of tissues, and settle down for a very moving, exceptional story!
The element of conflict is expertly woven throughout the story as Porter details the journey of the dog from its adverse beginnings to its place as a beloved member of its new family. The conflict against nature is manifested as the dog survives a feral environment, enduring vicious battles and deprivation en route to the Porter home. A conflict with society ensues as the dog exhibits frenzied reactions to loud noises and sudden movements. It causes a severe injury to another pet as Sheba loses control during one scene in the narrative. The conflict with self is finally resolved as the animal is able to overcome its violent urges and settles into its new home at last.
For animal lovers, family narrative readers as well as those who enjoy a cozy tale of man’s best friend, Sheba by Brian L. Porter is a worthy read.
