Miracle Dogs celebrates and honors rescuers and the dogs whose lives they’ve saved. It features wonderful stories and uplifting photographs of dogs rescuers, trainers, and organizations such as The Gentle Barn and Tamar Geller’s Operation Heroes and Hounds, along with celebrity pet owners such as Hoda Kotb, Lance Bass, Amanda Hearst, Chevy Chase and Jamie-Lynn Sigler. Each chapter includes portraits of an inspirational dog and his new owners, followed by a touching story about their journey to become a family.
A professional pet photographer, Liz Stavrinides spends much of her time on projects related to animal rescue. Miracle Dogs was born out of her desire to collect and share the stories of the dogs she’s met over the years, showcasing the incredible bravery and compassion of both canines and owners. Readers will be moved by dogs like Wyatt, an assistance dog who helped a young boy with autism communicate with the outside world; Fiona, who was found blind and starving and is now in a loving family; and Kody, a brave rescued dog who risked everything to save his owner from a deadly rattlesnake attack. All of them have finally found their homes. Stavrinides’s portraits are heartwarming–a loving and poignant tribute to our furriest family members.
