Huck : The Heartwarming True Story of a Little Lost Dog Who Changed Lives - Janet Elder


The Heartwarming True Story of a Little Lost Dog Who Changed Lives

For years, Janet Elder said ‘no’ to her son’s desperate pleas for a dog - even managing to hold firm after his heart-rending PowerPoint presentation featuring a happy family with a dog versus a sad family without one. Living in a tiny apartment and juggling jobs, there was no room in their lives for a dog.

Then, Janet was diagnosed with breast cancer. After months of gruelling treatment, granting Michael’s wish with a sweet, mischievous poodle called Huck seems the perfect antidote - an affirmation of life.

But when Janet's treatment finally allowed the family to take a vacation, little Huck had to be left behind with her dog-loving sister. In less than 24 hours Huck had slipped through the fence and run away. Broken-hearted, the family flew back immediately to find him. Moved by their plight, everyone in the small town of Ramsey - from school children to the police chief and the mayor - unites in a desperate race against the clock to find him. Searching in densely wooded areas in freezing conditions becomes an incredible test of faith.

Huck’s story - and those of the strangers who came together to rescue him - is a moving reminder that few things unite people more than a shared love of man's best friend.
