About this title

Synopsis:

Elise Lufkin and Diana Walker once again present a moving collection of profiles, in beautiful, duotone photographs and moving text, of dogs that have found new lives after being throw away” dogs. Each dog (and one cat) profiled has had a rough past, suffering abuse or extreme neglect at the hands of humans.

Some dogs featured here have become therapy dogs for hospitals and nursing homes; reading partners for children; friends to at-risk teens and the injured in veterans affairs hospitals; service dogs for the deaf and blind; arson dogs; and even search-and-rescue dogs. Some of these special dogs are disabled, blind, deaf, missing limbs, but they don’t seem to know it. These spunky, happy animals have repaid the kindness of their rescuers in spades, bringing the therapy of love to people in need, sometimes even saving lives.

About the Author:

Elise Lufkin has worked with various animal shelters, socializing dogs to make them better candidates for adoption. She has been active in promoting humane-education projects. She and her recently deceased and greatly missed dog, Posy, were active in a Pet Partners program for many years, visiting nursing home residents. She lives in Ketchum, Idaho.

Diana Walker is a contract photographer for Time magazine. Her images have won prizes and have appeared in many major publications, including People, Life, The New York Times Magazine, and Paris Match. Her work can be found in the collections of Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the Chicago Art Institute and the Minneapolis Museum of Art. She lives in Washington, DC.
