Dogs that Make a Difference

Saskia Adams

In this heart warming book meet Lucy the labrador, who helps autistic children come out of their shell; Paris, whose special connection with a stroke victim helped his recovery; Elmo, the poodle with whom prisoners let down their guard; and Maggie, whose easygoing nature prompts pensioners to reach out to her. These and other therapy dogs leave a lasting paw print on the hearts of everyone they meet.
