A moving, delightful collection of stories that celebrate the canine-human bond.

In this heart-warming work, we reunite with the lovable rescue dog and subject of the cherished book Arthur as he settles into his new life abroad. As we follow Arthur’s ups and downs with his owner, author Mikael Lindnord, we also meet sixteen other rescue dogs, each with a surprising story of how they found their forever home. From Ecuador to America, Australia to the Yukon, and everywhere in between, remarkable canine encounters prove that dogs really are our best friends—and that their journeys to find love and acceptance are as compelling as our most famed human tales.
