Publisher's Summary

A panicked puppy in a Los Angeles shelter is deemed too terrified for adoption and scheduled to be killed. 

When a rescue volunteer frees her at the last minute, the little girl is 15 pounds underweight and covered with open sores, swollen ticks, and thousands of fleas. Her ears are stuffed with blood and wax, her paws filled with concrete. The victim of severe neglect and confinement, her muscles are atrophied - even her tongue lolls in her mouth. It hurts her to walk more than a few feet, and she limps. She has chewed and licked through the skin on her limbs. 

Physical ailments can heal, but the greatest challenge will be to overcome what life has taught her about humans: that they are to be feared. 

Named Roo, the puppy is randomly assigned to a volunteer foster parent with neither special skills nor experience with fearful dogs who writes that he is “just as scared as she is”. 

Notes from a Dog Rescue in Progress is the emotional and inspiring true story of Roo’s journey and the powerful bond formed as she and her foster parent develop the trust and understanding to address her fears and problems one at a time in an attempt to redeem an unredeemable dog.

It touches your soul

I read the print version several years ago and found it as an audio book today. I love the story and the author brings it to life narrating himself.

I follow the blog to this day, telling how Roo is doing and about life in general. It's called "the dog in the clouds" if you want to follow up.
