The Dogs of Sanctuary House

The true stories of the homeless dogs who have come to live at Sanctuary House on the lower Eastern Shore of Maryland. Many of the dogs were lost or no longer wanted at the end of hunting season, others were homeless for other reasons. Most of the dogs are beagles . . . but Sanctuary House has also been home to golden retrievers, cocker spaniels, a rat terrier, a Chihuahua, a border collie, a mostly Pomeranian, and two American Eskimo dogs. This book of stories provides little windows into their lives.
