A New Dog's Tale

This is the true story of Laurie Sacher, and the way her life changed after adopting a small dog that had lots of problems. Laurie had expected a dog that would be nice looking, and she was hoping to get kudos from other people for adopting a dog. Instead she got a dog that had been abused, looked awful, smelled worse and was very sick. Despite all that, Laurie brought the dog, Mia, home.

The story takes place in Oregon where Laurie works at a ranch owned by Christians. The ranch takes in horses that have been abused or not taken care of, and works with children who have troubled lives. Laurie and the owner are good friends. While the two women ride and work together, Laurie shares things that have changed in her life since adopting Mia. Especially the way Mia influences Laurie’s relationship with God, and her understanding the character of God.

There are some very heart breaking stories in the book, especially concerning Mia’s health, but there are some profound and up-lifting experiences shared, as well. The most amazing event is that God can use anything or anyone to touch someone’s heart with His love—even an unhealthy, small dog.

I enjoyed reading this book and give it 4 stars. The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have not been compensated in any other manner. Despite my receiving the book free, it has not influenced my judgment, and I have given an honest opinion.
