A thrilling, touching adventure that follows one remarkable dog's journey back to her beloved owner. War veteran Dirck Hansen suffers from severe PTSD and is on the verge of self-destruction when he meets Chauncey, a service dog who eases his anxiety and offers him the potential for healing. With Chauncey by his side, Dirck's life regains normalcy, but a fateful day at the park alters the course of their bond. As Dirck begins a desperate search for his lost dog, Chauncey sets out on her own adventure through New England wilderness and cold city streets. Beautifully written and powerfully told, this story speaks to the unshakeable, enduring bond between man and dog. Fans of The Call of the Wild and The Incredible Journey will love this book!

RESCUE is the remarkable and heartfelt story of a war veteran, Captain Dirck Hansen, who lives in his confined world of PTSD but an extraordinary service dog, Chauncey, transforms him heart and soul. But one day, his dog vanishes, forging a two-year harrowing odyssey that both man and dog must endure. Hope grows from despair in this gripping but charming story of a man and his beloved dog. RESCUE illustrates the resiliency and imagination of dogs, the remarkable bond they have with the disabled, and ultimately, the greatness that all dogs bring to our lives.
