Synopsis: Reluctant dog rescuer Ken Foster finds himself adopting various stray dogs, from a beagle abandoned in a dog run to a pit bull at a truck stop. The dogs offer a grounding counterpoint to his own misfortunes in New York City after 9/11, in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, and during his heart attack.
From the Back Cover:
Winner of Foreword Magazine's 2006 Bronze Award for Pet Book of the Year! "Generosity and gratitude power this compelling account of the reciprocal nature of rescue. Ken Foster illuminates a profound lesson about saving a life: Doing it makes you able to do it."
--Amy Hempel, author of The Dog of the Marriage and Reasons to Live
"I read this at once, and could hardly bear to put it down. It delivers something crucial about bravery, the human spirit, and the place that dogs occupy in our landscapes. It’s about confronting need, vulnerability, and love, and responding."
--Roxana Robinson, author of A Perfect Stranger and Georgia O’Keeffe
"Ken Foster writes about the human/canine bond with wisdom, insight, and great heart. This is a fascinating and useful book, full of great stories and practical knowledge. Ken’s dogs are lucky to have found him, and so are his readers."
--Sean Wilsey, author of Oh the Glory of it All
"Foster’s dogs are memorable, delightful characters, with vivid, poignant stories. The Dogs Who Found Me is a testament to the joys dogs bring, and to the beauty in the work of saving them."
--Rene Steinke, National Book Award finalist for Holy Skirts
"If you love dogs as much as Ken Foster, you will probably recognize yourself in much of The Dogs Who Found Me. You will remember your heart stopping or being shredded . . . only to be repaired with an even greater capacity to love."
--Terry Bain, author of You Are A Dog
"Pitbulls pitbulls pitbulls, and a man, like me, who loves them. Alternately brutal and sentimental, like the lives of the dogs he rescues. A very, very cool book."
--James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces and My Friend Leonard
