One Good Dog is a wonderful novel: a moving, tender, and brilliantly crafted story about two fighters-one a man, one a dog- hoping to leave the fight behind, who ultimately find their salvation in each other. Fans of Marley and Me will find a new dog to cheer for in Wilson's (Beauty) insightful heart-tugger about Adam March, a Boston man recovering from the shame of a foolish crime, and Chance, a scrappy pit bull mix trying to escape the illegal dogfight circuit. Adam, 46, is a ruthless self-made millionaire married to an icy socialite living a picture-perfect existence that includes a teen princess daughter.

Acclaimed author Susan Wilson brings us a touching yet unblinkingly authentic tale of loss and rediscovery, of true friendship and learning what's truly important in life.

One note. Three words. And Adam March's well-ordered life and well-laid plans are shattered.

The very definition of a hard-nosed businessman, Adam March has no room in his life for anything but the cold drive to succeed. Not for his social-climbing wife or for his rebellious teenage daughter. Then, in an instant, he loses everything. Due to an untimely collision of arrogance, stress, circumstance, and a momentary loss of self-control, Adam finds himself alone, unemployed, and reduced to bussing tables in a homeless shelter, serving men he'd always gone out of his way to avoid.

One instant of opportunity. Enough for one dog to find his freedom.

Chance was born in an inner-city cellar, a mix of pit bull and God-knows-what. Bred to fight, and damn good at it, he lived in a dank, dark, and vicious world. Not that he wished for something better; that world was all he knew. But when the moment presented itself, Chance made the most of it in a new life on the street, for a little while.

Two lives. Two second chances.

Thrown together, Adam and Chance fill the holes in each other's lives. Adam gives Chance his first real home, a haven he never could have imagined, while Chance gives Adam a new start. And a new heart.

That's One Good Dog.

  • I cannot recommend this book enough. The book is good, and the writing style of the author fantastic. As an added bonus, the story takes place in Boston, and as a former resident of that great city, I can relate immensely with many of locations described in the book.

    The story is really two stories. Half of the book details our hero Adam March's rise and fall within corporate America. Without giving anything anyway, Adam suffers a nervous breakdown at work which results in him losing his job. This starts a cascade of events that eventually results in Adam losing everything. The rest of this story chronicles his comeback from the abyss, as well as offering glimpses into his background that explain the reason why he is who is.

    The other half of the story is told from from the perspective of a Pitt bull who started his life out as dog fighter. He is eventually rescued, and adopted by Adam March. The rest of the story chronicles the bonding process between this dog and Adam in beautiful detail. As a dog owner and animal lover, I found everything that the author described as far as the dog's thinking to be extremely believable, and not unreasonable.

    In short, this story was extremely moving, and I found myself tearing up at several points in the book. I have a few key takeaways after reading this story - (1) Don't judge a book by it's cover. Pitt bulls are great dogs, and I think if you are able and in the market for a great dog, you should consider taking one of these guys into your home, and (2) dog fighting is abomination, and those engaged in this practice should be thrown in prison for life.

  • I had a bit of a hard time getting into this story because the dog started first and I didn't think I was interested. Oh, I was so wrong!! The dog and the main character really save each other! it took a long time. I really thought each was a hard case and neither would come to their senses! But they did and it was a sad and happy ending!

  • This book is written from two perspectives—Adam and Chance’s. Adam is a man struggling with a buried past and Chance is a former fighting pit bull. The story grabbed me from the very get-go and I found it nearly impossible to put down. I celebrated their achievements and sobbed with their heartbreaks. The story is a feel-good story that will have you wishing that it didn’t end, as all good books must do. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves animals—especially dogs!

  • Was a very good read. It's a book about a man who lost his way and has to discover and re-event himself. It's about a dog that is a fighter and gets away. He has tr re-event himself. How they meet and how they help each other do so. Both are broken. If I say anymore it would spoil the outcome. The ending made me cry.

  • As an animal lover I always hesitate to read a book I suspect will leave me sobbing at the end but this was such a wonderfully written and insightful book that I'm glad I risked it. Some of the reviewers are angry that the author talked about the horrible aspects of dog fighting...YES, it is cruel and inhumane and instead of closing our eyes to it because it makes us sad, shining the light on it as the author did should inspire us to speak out against it, to rally for stronger laws to stop it and more severe penalties for those who abuse helpless animals. Pretending it doesn't exist helps none except those who try to prove their manhood by fighting and eventually killing an innocent animal. I loved the writing and the first-person speaking by Chance...the author has captured the essence of life from Chance's perspective. Yes, I cried at what I thought was the end then cheered at the end. A must read even if you've never fallen on hard times and don't even like dogs!

  • It was months ago that I first started reading this book, but found it so disturbing that I set it aside and had not read another novel since. So by chance that a couple of days ago I recharged my Kindle and skimmed over what I had previously read, then I started reading in earnest where I had left off. I loved it and I love dogs and I am so glad I gave it a second go! I became so emotionally involved that I actually found myself holding my breath at times. It plucked at my heartstrings throughout, on several different levels, but I don't want to share more for fear I will reveal too much. I urge pet-lover readers to take a Chance on One Good Dog as you perhaps have on Dan and Little Ann, Old Yeller, and Lassie.

  • One Good Dog is told from alternating perspectives of a man and a dog. Adam March is a self-made executive who strives to have control over every aspect of his life, despite an aloof daughter and a cold, materialistic wife. One fateful morning, Adam makes a huge mistake that marks what could be the beginning of the end for him. Enter the dog, Chance, who has had a hard life in the brutal world of amateur dog-fighting. Chance's life changes the day he is rescued from the ring by Animal Protection. When Adam's life intersects with Chance's, things begin to change. As Adam struggles with mandated community service, a search for lost family members, and the unraveling of everything he thought was important, Chance is there through it all. Adam also finds an unlikely confidante in local store owner Gina.

    Not only did I love this book, I fell in love with Chance! He is a survivor. The author conveys the cruelty of the dog-fighting world without going into too much detail. Although Adam is initially hard to like, he undergoes many positive changes in his relationships with his daughter, his service at the homeless shelter, and his relationship with Gina. I have read several novels where a story is told through the eyes of a pet, and One Good Dog is by far the best. The author beautifully handles the themes of forgiveness, restitution and second chances. The story is sensitive, humorous, compelling and full of hope. Pick this one up!

  • I bought this book because I had the second one in the series gifted to me. It is absolutely wonderful if you are a dog lover. It is a heartfelt story about how a pitbull dog that was post fighting in a shelter completely changes a money hungry, anger filled man. It gives the point of view of both the man and the dog. I just love it. I always wondered what dogs are thinking...
