      Second Chance - Living with a Rescued Dog was written by Judy and Larry Elsden who wanted to produce a guide to the owner or prospective owner of a rescued dog, there is no doubt that they have succeeded and surpassed themselves.

      A small book in size (with the most beautiful German Shepherd dog on the front) but huge on content. This little gem not only relates to rescue dogs but there is some excellent information regarding dogs in general as well.

      Opening with the reasons why a dog may end up needing to be rescued and how


      it can mentally affect a dog, the Elsden’s pepper the book with heartwarming stories and pictures that would melt an ice cap.

      They introduce us to the different type of rescue operations in the UK from the large well known organisations to the really small unknown heros of the doggie world. They detail how best to choose your dog - or as is often the case - let them choose you and then move on to the all important aspect of actually living with a rescue. Choosing is very important no matter what dog you are thinking ...


      • of taking on but with a rescue it is all the more important because it is no good taking on a dog with - for example - mental problems or physical problems if you simply cannot cope with them. The worst case scenario then is that the dog ends up back at the rescue wondering what it has done to deserve it.

        Not stopping at the choice of dog, feeding, training, healthcare and dogs and the law are all covered. Not only that but Judy and Larry finish off with a section illustrating how many rescue dogs

        make excellent working dogs within charitable organisations such as Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Dogs for the Disabled etc

        The stories told about rescued dogs tug at your heart-strings, the pictures of neglect reduce you to tears (and if not why so heartless?) but most importantly is the message that rescued dogs are loving, responsive and a valuable member of the doggie community.

        If you support animal rescue you’ll love this book, if you are thinking of taking on a dog especially a rescue it is a must read, it champions the rescue and shouts for their right to life.
