Marley meets... Cujo ?

What would you do if there was a dog in your neighborhood forced to live outside day in/ day out, at the mercy of abusers, wild animals and brutal weather?

Walter does nothing--at first. Then, an accidental meeting with Lance, a Border Collie, sets the wheels in motion for a down-to-the-wire, life-saving rescue and a disappointing discovery: Lance turns out to be a threat to anyone he can get his teeth on--including his rescuers!

Their lives turned upside down by this semi-feral "pet", Walter and his wife Clara are forced to answer a painful question: do they euthanize the dog they rescued? Making their life-or-death choice even more difficult is Lance's hilarious quirkiness; when not threatening, he's incredibly entertaining--though a State Trooper, the local drug dealer, and a Megan's Law parolee, among many others, would beg to differ.

This rollicking, thought-provoking, and--at times--heart-wrenching true-life account of the unorthodox rescue of an unorthodox dog is guaranteed to captivate:

-Dog lovers

-Recovering addicts (there are numerous passages that the 12-step community will relate to)

-Survivors of child abuse (the author reveals his own poignant connection with Lance)

-Any reader who can laugh, cry, or enjoy having her/his faith in humanity restored.
