Description
Praised for his ability to offer "the most utterly compelling translation of dog to human I have ever seen" (Jeffrey Masson) in Merle's Door, and the winner of the National Outdoor Book Award for Out There, Ted Kerasote here explores the questions that were raised after he lost his best friend Merle. When Kerasote was finally ready for a new dog, he knew that he would want to give his puppy Pukka the longest life possible. Here he gathers the wisdom of breeders, veterinarians, and animal welfare advocates around the globe to find out if a purebred could be as healthy as a mixed-breed, how many vaccines are too many, whether we should rethink spaying and neutering, and if raw food is really healthier than kibble.

"Without question the most intelligent, most comprehensive book ever written about extending the lifetimes of dogs. Not only that, but it's riveting.... From pet owners to professionals such as breeders, shelter-workers, and veterinarians, those who think they already know about dogs are in for a real surprise."—Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

"Ted Kerasote gently and intelligently questions our fixed notions about living with dogs. Anyone who reads Pukka's Promise can't help but become a better dog person."—Bruce Fogle
