Like others who have reviewed this beautiful book, I too was unable to put it down. Man's cruelty to his fellow creatures is heartbreaking. Sadie's story had such a painfully sad beginning .However, there are human angels out there and when Joal Dauer found Sadie at a local animal shelter, it was the beginning of an inspiring journey of unconditional love, endurance hope, and healing. Sadie will warm your heart with her beautiful soft eyes and courageous spirit. With her mom, Joal,by her side, , Sadie has touched so many hearts and lives and continues to do so. A must read for all animal lovers. Love you, Sadie, our brave girl.
I loved this book and couldn't put it down. Sadie's face and smile reminds me so much of my 1st dog and her name is the same as my 3rd special needs dog. The story is so emotional and anyone who has ever truly loved their dog can relate. I know that I did everything I could to help my diabetic dog stay healthy including cataract surgery. It is so heartwarming and inspirational to see all that Joal has done for Sadie and how she has been rewarded for all she has done. Thank you so much for sharing Sadie's story.
This by far the best dog book I’ve ever read and I probably read 100. In our rescue we have a dog just like Sadie. I know how very attached you can get to a dog like this as I had to take her to 108 miles round-trip three times a week to a veterinary hospital in Philadelphia for almost 5 months. I started reading this book in the morning and couldn’t stop I read it straight through because it was that compelling. I recommended it to everyone in our rescue. To the author, thank you for everything you did for Sadie.
A heartbreaking story about a sweet, severly injured dog that no one wanted. I knew this book was going to be a tear jerker and it was. Joal Derse is Sadie's angel who comes to Sadie's rescue after dropping off donations at her local shelter. Joal, along with a team of doctors and therapists devote hours of time and love trying to help rehabilitate Sadie. My heart goes out to Joal for her never ending devotion to Sadie even when the news wasn't always good. I loved the story and only wish more people would be as caring as Joal and give these unfortunate animals a chance. They have a lot of love to give! I am happy to see despite Sadie's disability she is living a happy life with her loving mommy.
I happened to find this book in Amazon from a third party seller after I had added another used book of theirs to my cart. What a fortunate event that I stumbled upon this book. It is one of the most inspiring things I have ever read and has helped me on my own healing journey, which has felt impossible some days. Sadie reminds us that nothing is impossible if you never give up, and keep opening your heart. Thank you to Josh for saving her and the whole Team Sadie!
