“These real-life stories will touch your heart as they did mine and leave you in wonder at the power and wisdom dogs possess.”

It’s no accident that dog is God spelled backwards. Both dogs and God are about unconditional love. If you’ve ever had a dog, you know that they understand almost from the moment they are born, that they are here to love and care for people. Every dog needs a home and every home needs a dog. Finding Forever: The Dogs of Coastal German Shepherd Rescue illustrates this point beautifully. It is a wonderful and powerful book that tells story after heartwarming story about the work of Coastal German Shepherd Rescue. These real-life stories will touch your heart as they did mine and leave you in wonder at the power and wisdom dogs possess.

I loved this book! You journey with each dog as he or she evolves and comes into their own. Even in the sad parts you can see the expansion, possibilities, and hope. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and ultimately find yourself changed as you reach the last page.

Reading Finding Forever I found myself spellbound, sometimes forgetting to breath or catching myself cheering out loud. My emotions ran the gamut to the horror of what these blessed souls endured to my faith in the human race being restored. From deep contemplation, to at times sitting at the edge of my chair in absolute suspense with anticipation of the conclusion, the answer, the final chapter. The author’s ability to harness the message she receives from these animals, the skill to translate it and apply it to a life lesson is something we all need to pay attention to. She shares enlightened words of wisdom that if ignore, it will be our loss. I double dog dare you to read and not believe.

These stories will make you laugh and cry. More important they make you think and feel. I was amazed at the complexity of some of the dogs and how each one seemed to have a mission to teach us something . Then there is their longing to find that permanent, loving home, a human to connect with. Just like us, they are looking for love and connection. Some of them have been abused and their spirits broken, or almost broken and they are having to learn to re-trust again, a most difficult task. Again, a curious parallel to humans too.

You are going to fall in love with these dogs. Heart-warming and gut wrenching at the same time, these stories are written in such a loving, respectful way that you get to know each dog personally. And you care about them as much as the volunteers who devote time to providing love and finding shelter for each animal. The author uses her gift of intuition to comfort the dogs and help them heal, only to discover that she is the one learning the life lessons from the dogs.

—Vicki Stanford, Director – Blanchard Speaker’s Bureau

I loved this book.I read it over and over and laughed and cried each time. And not just because I’m a dog lover. The author has such an authentic and lovely voice and her writing will captivate you and keep you turning the pages wondering, what is going to happen next. What I loved about these stories was the emotion, the power, and the wisdom in the message each dog had to share.As an animal communicator, the author freely and humbly shares her gift with you and encourages you to develop your own skill. Truly remarkable!

“I hope that people will read these stories and be encourage empathize more with their pets and really listen for their voices.”

When I read these amazing stories, I was initially intrigued by the idea that anyone could communicate with animals this way. While I knew very little about animal communication, these stories were touching, simple, and rang true. I became emotionally involved with the dogs and their stories and especially their messages for us. It is sad that it is so hard for animal communication to be accepted and reveled in. I hope that people will read these stories and be encourage empathize more with their pets and really listen for their voices.
