Have your say

Bookmark of Spalding has selected My Rescue Dog Rescued Me as a good read.

This lovely book introduces the reader to the inspirational dogs who went from being rescued to becoming rescuer in these incredible true stories.

• There is Toby, the golden retriever, who performed the Heimlich manoeuvre to save his owner’s life;

• Liam, the Lhaso Apso-Poodle mix who helped his owner battle an eating disorder;

• Herucles, the St Bernard who saved his owners from burglars on the first day he moved in;

• and finally Alfie, the terrier who gave a bullied girl a new lease of life.

The stories are told of many other canine heroes who came to their owner’s aid – whether it was saving them from physical threats, or helping them recover from mental illness, PTSD and bereavement.

Allow these uplifting stories to warm your heart, and show you that adopted dogs truly are man’s best friend.

The book retails for £8.99 but there is a 20 per cent discount voucher in the Spalding Guardian of July 7.
