An adventure that spans three continents begins with a simple Christmas gift, as a family loans their mischievous collie, Jack, for a dangerous mission. He joins a maverick, but lovable Native American dog whisperer. Dakota Dixon (DX to his friends) is on a quest to achieve his Lakota spirit-destiny by training the ultimate K9 warrior in this action-packed and heartwarming tale of friendship, family, and intrigue.

Treated as an outcast since childhood for not being a full blood Lakota, Dakota never felt he belonged on the reservation. Demonstrating at an early age that he had the gift, he naturally gravitated to his canine companions. With his dogs, a favorite pastime became enlisting them in a variety of pranks on the boys who scorned him. He still craves the acceptance and respect that his grandfather enjoyed as a Marine Code Talker from WW II. When his grandfather reveals to him his spirit-destiny as a dog-whisperer, Dakota decides he too will become a great warrior to make him proud and finally earn the respect of his people.

He soon learns that not all battles occur on the battlefield. Seriously injured in Afghanistan, he loses his best friend and his trusted German Shepherd. He is discharged from the service and unable to attend an elite training school where he would have made his K9 training vision a reality. He must find a new path to prove his daring concepts and fulfill his spirit-destiny, finally gaining the acceptance he seeks.

--- Kevin Brett recreates the collie adventures of old in this modern, action-packed, heart-pounding story. Combining his life-long love of collies, decades of martial arts, and his keen sense of adventure, he weaves an exciting tale, stocked with enough twists and turns to keep seasoned agents on their toes. Jack K9 Warrior tells a unique story that is as old as the bond between man and his best friend.

About the Author:

Kevin Brett has been owned by and loved Collies all his life. As a young child, his family had a humongous mahogany Collie named Macintosh. Later, in his teen years, his family had a sable and white Collie, named Piney Branch Lindsay Lad. His current Collie is a tri-color, named Captain Jack Sparrow. 
 
Kevin works with numerous Collie, Sheltie and dog rescues around the country helping them raise funds to further their rescue efforts. Numerous copies of Jack's story have been sold by these rescues to help raise money to save these animals in need. He is a certified enterprise architect and a former member of the Space Shuttle/Spacelab Team. Kevin is also a certified martial arts instructor with twenty years of martial arts training and teaching experience. He has authored several martial arts books. 
 
Kevin is also an experienced outdoors-man and survival practitioner. He and his wife Lana were two of the five co-founders of the United Karate Institute of Self-Defense, Incorporated in Alexandria, Virginia. He has taught martial arts, self-defense combat classes to local law enforcement, military and federal agents, focusing on realistic and practical application of techniques, strategies and training methods. He lives in Stafford, VA with his wife, three children and their mischievous Collie, Captain Jack Sparrow who is just "trouble with a tail."

Review:

Canine James Bond - "The action is fast paced, exciting and well described. You are drawn into the details and drama of the military operation, and there are plenty of twists and surprises in the story."      - Stewart MacFarlane, PhD - author, dog trainer, martial artist, animal rescue volunteer, and retired academic
 
"...a lot of action and suspense. There were moments I wasn't sure which characters to trust, it kept me guessing and I enjoyed that. "  - Marquie Juarez - Loved by a Collie

"...the connection between man and dog is very well done, as is the military detail - it feels quite authentic." - Rowanna Green - Author: Death Wishes

Book Description Kevin Brett Studios Incorporated. Paperback. Condition: New. 388 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.An adventure that spans two continents begins with a simple Christmas gift. Keith Barnes has been owned by Collies his whole life. Now his dream is to share that joy and magic with his children. Funny thing; dreams dont always come true, at least not in the ways you might expect. Keith and Linda hope Jack will be the perfect Christmas gift for their children, but soon discover that Jack has a serious medical condition that changes everything. The family and Jack make a new friend, Dakota Dixon (DX to his friends). DX is a young Marine Corps Lieutenant and a fun- loving, half-Lakota Indian with a passion for pranks. He also has a special way with dogs. For him, dogs are more trustworthy and easier to relate to than most people. DXs dream is to be a tactical dog trainer. He believes he can create a new breed of K9 warrior. All he needs is a chance to demonstrate a new concept that could completely change the way dogs are used in the military and law enforcement, but nothing could prepare anyone for the events that unfold next as they all begin a new chapter in their lives. Everyone needs a hero and Dakota and Jack become the center of this adventure as a familys new Christmas Collie grows up to become the hero of their story. Jack rollicks and romps his way through the Barness home and their lives, changing all of them in ways they had never expected. Kevin Brett recreates the enchantment and romance of Collie stories of old with a modern action-packed flavor; often humorous, sometimes gritty, but always full of Collie heroics, suspense, international intrigue, black ops, ancient castles and a few well-placed explosions that all combine to create an enthralling and heartwarming story of friendship, sacrifice and adventure. Discover the gift that each of us carries inside, as a family learns that life is not as perfect as our dreams, but that our dreams may still come true in ways we might not ever imagine.
