From the Back Cover: “Three-legged Ella has two sides: her crazy, unfocused, wild side that emerges when she’s challenging her Newf sister, Zoe, and her motherly, gentle, loving side that she shows to blind Jake. I have a 20-second rule for Ella, during which she must ‘focus’ before I allow her to go wild again. In my opinion, she has earned the right to get a little crazy and to soak up every bit of her surroundings, so I reward her with that leeway once she gets through the 20 seconds. Ella certainly has a lot of living to do after being discarded by her breeder and almost not living at all! We should all be such a sponge for life!” –Judy Robinson

Excerpt:”Almendra was born without front legs, and instead of teaching her how to walk, the family that was responsible for her litter dumped her at the Mexican veterinary school, where I am a student. She was covered in open wounds from dragging her body around, and she could only move one of her back legs. The hand-off from her former guardian was strange. The woman gave her to me and said, ‘Please take care of her.’ Then she started crying and ran away! I was left there alone, holding this disfigured, bloody puppy in my hands, thinking, ‘What is next?'” -Adhara Talamantes
Vol. I Information
Some people with giant hearts set out to help pets with disabilities. Other people somehow come to have special-needs pets before they realize how blessed they are to have received the pet they needed, even if it wasn’t necessarily the pet they wanted at first. Whatever the case, many people find that their “special-abled” pets have added a new dimension to their lives that no readily-adoptable pet ever could.
Lost Souls: FOUND! Inspiring Stories About Pets with Disabilities is full of 40+ stories from people whose lives have been touched by “less-adoptable” animals, animals with physical or mental limitations that significantly affect their lives. These uplifting stories prove that animals with disabilities can prove to be equally good, if not better, companions than “normal” animals.
