Dog No. 241 lives in a crate in a cold, dark barn that is stacked with hundreds of other caged dogs in a puppy mill breeding operation. She has never known human companionship, exercise, or decent care. One night, rescuers arrive and take her and the other dogs away to lead new and happier lives. Soon, despite her fears, she finds herself in a warm, secure foster home, being bathed and groomed and loved by a young woman named Emma. At first, she is too frightened to respond; all she wants is to return to the familiar dark.

Eventually renamed Dakota, she learns to love and trust Emma, and her foster home becomes a friendly haven. But then a new challenge arrives in the person of a young girl, Sweetie, who is recovering from a misfortune as deep as Dakota’s own. Sweetie and her parents come to look at Dakota as a possible pet. Initially, Sweetie rejects hairless little Dakota, but later she returns to offer Dakota a home, and Emma recommends her for adoption. With Emma’s reassurances, Dakota goes to her forever home to become Sweetie’s true partner in recovery.

  • I have two rescued Keeshonden right now, and have had others through the years. No puppy-mill survivors, but rescues nonetheless. Dakota's story is so gut-wrenching for me that I have yet to read through this book without tears, but it's so sweet, so beautifully illustrated, so thoughtfully told from Dakota's point of view that I highly recommend it. From Dakota's sorrow at her countless lost puppies (the only warmth and comfort she knew in her puppy-mill cage), to her confusion at being removed to a strange place where she was handled and bathed and allowed to walk on a flat surface, to her initial tentative attachment to her rescue foster owner, and finally through her transition into the family of a girl with battles of her own to fight - none of this was easy, it wasn't a fairy tale. People had to work hard to save Dakota, and Dakota had to work hard to accept that salvation.

    I highly recommend.

  • Another great Hum Ed book for kids! All the sit stay read series books are great and I highly Rec them all. You don't have to be an official HE to present them to children either! Offer to read to a class at your local school. Start a discussion with kids about how the book makes them feel.

  • Love this. Helps kids understand what a puppy mill is.

  • nicely written

  • A great book for introducing children to the negative side of puppy mills.

  • This is a wonderful book about rescuing puppy mill dogs and what wonderful pets rescue animals make. Encourages humane treatment of all animals.

  • This book does an excellent job explaning what the horrible, cruel puppy mills are like and what its probably like for animals who live/lived there without watering it down any, but also making it suitable for children to read.

  • It arrived on time and is a great story.
