From the Back Cover:

A collection of true stories about dogs with atypical lifestyles who spurned confinement and one-family ownership. Each dog's tale is unique -- from Boozer who had his own bank account and appeared on Good Morning America, to Owney who spent his life riding mail trains and can now be seen in the Smithsonian Institute -- but all share the same independent spirit and unusual bonds with the humans who knew them.
