Description

Every puppy hopes for a loving family and a loyal master, but not all dogs are so fortunate. Some dogs are destined to come from the wrong side of the tracks, regardless of how they start out. Jack became such a dog. He was placed into a dysfunctional family, led by a neglectful patriarch, anchored by an alcoholic mother, and dominated by an abusive and frightening teenager. Jack remained locked in his fenceless prison for more than half his life until his master decided he was no longer wanted. Abandoned on an isolated island, Jack figured out how to survive. He carved out a new life for himself and befriended a stranger from a distance. Jack endured hunger, thirst, heat, rain, mosquitoes, and the wrath of other animals, including a wild bobcat. When he became the victim of a vicious attack, he struggled for every breath, hoping to be rescued before it was too late. -Now They Call Me Jack- is a tenderly written novel based on true events. Jack tells his own story, with a poignant truthfulness and good humor. Jack is given a second chance by strangers with nothing to gain. He finds his way to a forever home, to a family struggling with grief at the loss of their beloved dog. Technically, Jack is a rescue dog, but in truth, he provided a rescue to his new family as much as they pulled him out of his own dire circumstances. Jack's life is a story of survival and triumph, of new beginnings and redemption.show more
