This mon­th is Adopt a Shel­ter Dog Mon­th. We have lots of feels about that: we love pup­pies and we espe­cial­ly love when pup­pies find a safe and  love-filled place they call home! So when we got this par­tic­u­lar book in stock, we were all a-cry­ing, sigh­ing and full of warm fuzzier!  Find­ing Home: Shel­ter Dogs and Their Sto­ries by Traer Scott is chalk full of pic­tures of some real­ly amaz­ing dogs, all of whom Scott encoun­tered while vol­un­teer­ing at var­i­ous ani­mal shel­ters.

Scott com­bi­nes the amaz­ing pho­tog­ra­phy with sto­ries of the­se won­der­ful dog­gies: From Mor­ris­sey,  a pitt bull who strug­gled with anx­i­ety behav­iors while in the ani­mal shel­ter until he found a forever home with a fam­i­ly with four chil­dren, to Bin­g­ley, a dog made deaf dur­ing a drug bust who found a fam­i­ly will­ing to love and live with a dog who can’t hear. The sto­ries are all inspir­ing, although some can be a but heart wrench­ing.

This book makes a great cof­fee table book and con­ver­sa­tion starter for any and all dog lovers. Show all your vis­i­tors the­se beau­ti­ful sad-fun­ny faces and may­be you can help con­vince some­one to bring home their very own shel­ter dog friend!
