About the Book
Bringing a dog into your family is an exciting time. But first, you have to find the right one. If you are willing to overlook what some might consider a problem, you may find yourself with a very special dog.
Author Joanne Russo Insull’s Dugan: The Dog Who Said, “Mom,” is about a little dog who lives in a shelter, waiting for someone to adopt him. He is cute and friendly but he barks—a lot, and that has kept people from taking him home. Finally, Dugan’s special day comes, and a woman is willing to take a chance on him. She adopts him and gives him a loving home. His new mom also helps him find the special talent he has always wished for.
Dugan: The Dog Who Said, “Mom” is a story children of all ages will enjoy. It shows what can happen with love and faith in others.
