HASH(0x8fc715bc) out of 5 stars A heartfelt story every family will love. 8 Dec. 2000
By Candace Sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
I recommend this book to families everywhere who wish to tell a young child a story about love, trust, and the value of believing in your hopes, dreams and wishes. "Dasher Gets Adopted" follows the adventures of a young Greyhound dog who is adopted by a loving family. While trying to adjust to her new surroundings and family, Dasher makes mistakes, feels guilty and is sometimes afraid of what will happen to her. However, her new family doesn't scold her or make her feel guilty. They teach her about her new surroundings, and let her feel their love through patience and example. Trying to "fit in" to any new circumstance can be just as scarey for a young child, as it is for an adult.
Greyhounds, like young children, are fast on their feet, especially when they are headed into a dangerous situation they have no knowledge of. When an open door presents itself, Dasher enters an unprotected world. Will she survive?
You must read the ending to this wonderful story to embrace the full meaning of one family's love. I trust that you will see many of your own life's experiences showcased in this precious book.
A lighthearted story with deep inner meaning. I highly recommend "Dasher Gets Adopted." It can help a child understand self-worth, expectations, disappointments, victory, trust and love.

"Dasher Gets Adopted," is a valuable book about loyalty and compassion for all ages. It tells the story in easy to understand language and introduces children to greyhound rescue and the responsibility of dog ownership. Owlsbooks was wonderful. Would purchase from them again!
