A dog, feared and mistreated by everyone, is rescued and cared for by a man who needs and appreciates him
 
Pointed ears, sharp teeth, and a back slightly bent under dark fur: a lonely dog gets mistaken for a wolf. No one came close—no one dared—so the sad dog howled. Until one day, someone reached out a hand to him.

Review:

"High-contrast, laser-cut images accompany a simple story about the destiny of a canine whose wolflike appearance and behavior lead it from imprisonment in a pound to a better life . . . . The pages are arrestingly beautiful, with sparse, pointed text and frame-worthy illustrations . . . . It’s hard not to feel for this good dog." —Kirkus Reviews

"Stark silhouettes make a dramatic impact in Elschner’s grim account of an urban dog whose wolflike characteristics inspire mistreatment and fear . . . . The story’s darkest moments may upset readers with a soft spot for animals, but the closing scenes offer a sense of comfort, hope, and peace." —Publishers Weekly

"Moving." —Megan Cox Gurdon, Wall Street Journal

"Géraldine Elschner’s moving story provides an intimate look at what a mistreated and misunderstood dog feels when he isn’t wanted, and the joy of being found by someone who does." —Kendal Rautzhan, The Times Herald

"Will touch the hearts of animal lovers who believe there is a place for all creatures in this world. Heartfelt and poignant, this simple text expresses what it truly means to be a 'good dog.'" —Carol Connor, School Library Journal starred review

“A . . .  story about compassion and acceptance . . . beautiful and ultimately heartwarming tale of seeing past the surface that will be especially appealing to animal-lovers.” —Maggie Reagan, booklistonline.com

"A sad and lonely dog, chained to a concrete slab by an abusive owner, tells how his wolf-like appearance and nighttime howling has led humans in the city neighborhood to misunderstand him. He longs for the freedom to run and the touch of a friendly hand. Taken to an animal shelter, the abandoned dog loses hope of being rescued until a man carrying a long, thin stick reaches through the bars to pat him on his back and says, “You look like a real shepherd dog!” Now, the dog reports, he spends his days tending sheep in the fields and his nights beside his shepherd, singing to the moon. Black-and-white silhouette illustrations dramatically show the transformation of this mistreated dog, whose life is changed by one caring individual." —Carolyn Angus, Literacy Daily
