Big PB Planet applause for A Home for Dakota by Jan Zita Grover, illustrated by Nancy Lane (A Sit! Stay! Read! Series book, The Gryphon Press, 2008). The simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming story of a sweet Keeshond rescued from her horrible life as a puppy mill breeder dog. At her foster home with Emma, Dakota is shown kindness she'd never known before, and she begins to get better--even starting to grow fur again. And one day, a potential adoptive family comes to visit, with a little girl who has even less hair than Dakota... A beautifully illustrated story, with a "how you can help" page on puppy mills and rescue dogs. Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!
