Description
The founder and executive director of the Good Dog Foundation, the largest dog-assisted therapy organization on the East Coast, Rachel McPherson here tells stories of dogs who bring hope and healing into the lives of humans who have a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional problems. Introducing dogs like Hooch, a 100-pound rottweiler who assists his one-legged owner and also encourages children with reading difficulties through the Reading Education Assistance Dogs program, McPherson illustrates how dogs can bring a healing presence to hospitals, provide a calming "home base" for autistic children, hold troubled families together, and guide severely depressed or traumatized individuals back to health.

"When I first heard of the Good Dog Foundation I thought, 'is there any other kind?' This book gives us some specific examples of the unique therapy that dogs provide when it is needed most. Enjoy a good read, after which I am sure you will appreciate your own dog even more."óBetty White
