Another Good Dog: One Family and Fifty Foster Dogs

Another Good Dog coverAnother Good Dog: One Family and Fifty Foster Dogs was published August 2018 by Pegasus Books. It is available wherever books are sold.

What started as a search for a good dog, led to an epiphany that there wasn’t just one dog that could fill the hole in my heart―I could save many more. That number has now climbed to well over 100!
This book shares the adventures and lessons learned with our first fifty foster dogs ― including an 75-pound coonhound who sang arias for the neighbors, a ball-crazed trick dog, a litter of precious puppies, a 3-pound bouncing Chi-weinie, even one remarkable dog from Iraq. They’ve brought us a lot of joy (along with more than a few chewed shoes). This book will open your heart to the wonderful rewards of fostering.

Filled with humanity and hope, Another Good Dog will take the reader on a journey of smiles, laughs, and tears―and lead us to wonder how many other good dogs are out there and what we can do to help.

“Cara Sue Achterberg has in fact written another good book about dogs, but even more so she has produced a manifesto on how to change the world: through single acts of caring and compassion stacked one on top of another without end.” Jim Gorant, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption

Another Good Dog was featured in the New York Post, the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Show and was a People magazine People’s Pick.
