The publisher believes that this book is *** "a first of its kind in the modern era." *** After extensive research back until the early 1900's he was unable to find a memoir written by a breed founder. The Shiloh Shepherd Story narrates with candor and frankness the story of how the Shiloh Shepherd dog came to be a living reality. Few of us have any real conception of what is involved in the birth of a new dog breed, or the difficulties and setbacks that seem necessarily to go along with the process. Tina Barber's tenacity in pursuit of her vision, her refusal to give up in the face of adversity, make up the elements of an inspiring real-life drama of triumph through faith, in her God, in herself, in her dream, in her dogs. This book is probably unlike any dog book you have ever read: rip-roaring, gripping, exciting a spiritual and canine thriller!

"We believe this book to be the first of its kind. We have done extensive research back to the early 1900's and were unable to find any memoirs of a breed founder!" - Dr. John Patrick Grace, Publisher Mid-Atlantic Highlands.
Beautifully told by the Breed Founder. It is a "Narrative nonfiction, biography/memoir for lovers of dogs, with a twist of Erin Brockovich " - W. Lass Editorial Coordinator.
Endorsed by the Oak Ridge Boys! William Lee Golden(the Mountain Man) is pictured on the back cover with Shiloh Shepherd GV CH "Charley".From the Author:
"All dog breeds were developed by people. In many cases breeds of dogs were developed by individuals who devoted their lives to the project. The German Shepard was founded by Captain Max von Stephanitz in Germany in the early 1900s. The Jack Russell terrier was founded by the Reverend Jack Russell in the mid 1800s. Through diligence, perseverance, divine blessings and luck, I can say that I too am the founder of a new breed of dogs, the Shiloh Shepherds. The history of the Shiloh Shepherd is intertwined with my own story, a tale that like any has its ups and downs. It was at one of my lowest points that I found Jesus." - Tina M. Barber, Author/Breed Founder
