Beschreibung

She thought she was rescuing an abandoned puppy. Turns out, he was rescuing her.

The last thing Lisa Edwards needed was a new dog. But when she came across an abandoned litter on Halloween, her heart went out to the runt who walked into walls and couldn't steady his feet. Lisa–healing from past abuse and battling constant pain from a chronic medical condition–saw a bit of herself in little Boo. And when he snuggled, helpless, against her, she knew he was meant to be hers.

The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a clumsy gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. Yet with his unflappable spirit and boundless love, Boo has changed countless lives through his work as a therapy dog–helping a mute six–year–old boy to speak, coaxing movement from a paralyzed girl and stirring life in a ninety–four–year–old nun with Alzheimer's. But perhaps Boo's greatest miracle is the way he transformed Lisa's life, giving her the greatest gift of all–faith in herself.

This is the inspiring true story of "the little dog who could," but more than that, it's the story of how one woman and one dog rescued each other–a moving tribute to hope, resilience and the transformative power of unconditional love.

  • (5/5)
    Dog Named Boo by Lisa J. Edwards was even better than I expected. I am always drawn to books about dogs so as soon as soon as I saw Boo’s beautiful brown eye on the cover I had to read it.Boo is a little like Cinderella. Lisa went out to buy some Halloween candy and came back with Boo. He was abandoned with the rest of his litter mates in front of pet shop. His vulnerability and persistence caught the eye of the author. His litter mates were bullying him by jumping on him and pushing him over but him never fought back. The smallest of the litter, he also had partially blindness, learning disabilities and even an awkward gait. Lisa’s husband didn’t know why she picked him and it took a long time before he accepted and loved Boo.But Lisa identified with Boo from the beginning. She was the smallest of her siblings. She was abused by both parents in different ways. That made her afraid of them. She had a terrible childhood and young adulthood. Her brother was able to protect her in some ways when she was young and she was always grateful to him for that. Her sister was never friendly towards her. She found that she could receive unconditional love from dogs instead of humans.Even though training was hard, Boo shone in making both of them laugh and he learned out to get along with the other dogs. Boo triumphed over his disabilities and helped children who no one could figure out how to help and people effected by 911. Boo revealed that he had a special sensitivity that the other dogs did not have. I am so glad that Lisa saw herself in Boo’s behaviors. This is the best dog book that I have ever read. I highly recommend this book to all dog lovers and people who want to help people.I received this as a win from FirstReads but that in no way influenced my thoughts and feelings in my review.
