Book Giveaway – Finding Forever: The Dogs of Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Finding Forever: The Dogs of Coastal German Shepherd Rescue chronicles the poignant and heartwarming stories of twenty-six abandoned and abused German Shepherds in search of their forever homes. Houson, a fledgling animal communicator, uses her gift to connect with these dogs and understand their thoughts, feelings, and dreams for the future.

In Finding Forever, readers will meet Gavin, a sensitive German Shepherd who tells Houson, that she has saved his life. And strapping Spartacus, who opens his wounded heart and finds his forever home on Valentines Day. Pint-sized shepherds, Patience and Eve, both pregnant, both abandoned, and both on death row, illustrate the power of friendship and its ability to heal us and lift us up when all seems lost. Then there’s Annika, a gentle bunny-soft shepherd whose message for the human race is that we must all expand our awareness and live life with a higher purpose.

Anyone who has ever gazed into the soulful eyes of their animal companion and wondered what they were thinking will fall in love with the stories of these German Shepherds and their journey to overcome adversity, sometimes against all odds. The core message in Finding Forever is that our animal companions are here to teach us. Not the other way around. If we could suspend the veil of disbelief or skepticism, open ourselves to their guidance, and follow their example, we would be rewarded beyond anything we dreamt possible.
