"From a border collie at a shopping mall to a pit bull in a Mississippi truck stop, The Dogs Who Found Me recounts the stories of a dozen dogs who chose author Ken Foster to rescue them. Initially reluctant, Foster set a four-hour time limit for placing the first strange dog he brought into his New York City apartment, only to discover that this would be the first of many dogs who would seemingly choose him to lead them, one way or another, to their new home. In addition to the personal stories, The Dogs Who Found Me offers expert advice and answers the essential questions: How should you approach an abandoned dog? How do you integrate a temporary animal guest into your household? What resources are available in your area? Are some dogs beyond rescue? Why do some dogs fear your help? Should we ever give up on a dog?" -- from the publisher.

I have never laughed and cried so much reading a book. Literally within one page. One of the most touching and heart wrenching books I have ever read. I have ended up buying it and giving it away multiple times. Great book.

A wonderful book about a kind-hearted person who is drawn to the hard work and rewards of fostering. Very realistic.
