When an American family on Florida's Gulf Coast inherits a three-year-old male boxer from a distant German uncle, they are completely unaware of the man’s fame as a world-class breeder and trainer. The Jenkins family could not know that the young boxer they were about to open their hearts to was no ordinary dog, possessing skills few dogs in the world would ever acquire. It didn't take long for fourteen-year-old AJ to discover some of his new dog's special talents and he began applying them in very unusual ways, which eventually led him and his family into serious trouble. This family was about to find the fate of their entire town forever changed as family members learned the true value of the legacy left to them by a remarkable man they had never met. (Ages 12-up)
