Second Chance Dog (paperback) by Jon Katz - AUTOGRAPHED

$15.00
SKU: KatzSCDpaper

A rottweiler-shepherd mix who had been abandoned by her previous owner in the Adirondacks, where she lived in the wild for several years, Frieda was ferociously protective and barely tamed. She roared and charged at almost anyone who came near. But to Maria, Frieda was sweet and loyal, her beloved guard dog and devoted friend. And so Jon quickly realized that to win over Maria, he'd have to gain Frieda's affection as well. 

While he and Maria grew closer, Jon was having a tougher time charming Frieda to his side. Even after many days spent on Bedlam Farm, Frieda still lunged at the other animals, ran off into the woods, and would not let Jon come near her, even to hook on her leash. Yet armed with a singular determination, unlimited patience, and five hundred dollars' worth of beef jerky, Jon refused to give up on Frieda--or on his chance with Maria. 

Written with stunning emotional clarity and full of warm yet practical wisdom, "The Second-Chance Dog" is a testament to how animals can make us better people, and how it's never too late to find love.
