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.
Sheba's tale is one that stems from brutality and the horrific nature of some people. Redemption comes for this wronged animal, beaten and in a terrible condition, in the loving kindness provided by Porter and his wife Juliet.
This story will stir the emotions of anyone with a kind heart, not just dog lovers. It also proves that it is not in an animal's nature to be a beast, but man’s, as well as teaching us that if a dog, a so-called beast, can forgive after all that has been done to it, then it’s a sorry state of affairs when we cannot. Terrible really! It shouldn't take poor Sheba to make us realise such things, but her tale has made me think a lot.
A beautiful story of redemption and love. I would strongly recommend it to all readers.
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!
