about this item

While working as a veterinary technician, Joanne George heard about a puppy mill not far from the clinic and embarked on a rescue mission with her co-workers. On that special day, Joanne met Smiley for the first time. He had been born without eyes and with dwarfism and because of his time in the puppy mill, Smiley was suffering from serious anxiety. While the other dogs rescued that day were found loving homes, Smiley was going to need some extra special care. Nothing happens without practice and patience and Joanne and Smiley learned both those traits together. Gradually Smiley was able to walk off-leash and started greeting Joanne at the back door. She gave Smiley a loving home and he taught her patience, understanding and acceptance. It soon became evident that Smiley would become a wonderful therapy dog.

    I loved this book! It is a touching, true story of a blind golden retriever rescued from a puppy mill. Smiley goes on to become a therapy dog and a loving family pet. Although the book is geared toward children it will appeal to readers who love animals and inspiring stories.  see moreof JerseyGirl's review
