The beginning of a series, 'Karl the Grateful Dog' takes you into the mind of a pet who has been dumped by his owner. This abandoned yellow lab thinks he's too big and that no one will want him.
Silently, staring out from his wire cage, Karl remembers the hunger and hurts from his past owner, but that doesn't seem as bad as being alone.
A kind man named Jeff sees a picture of the big lanky lab. He reads the notice that the dog will soon be euthanized.
Driving thirty miles, he intends to foster Karl until a permanent home can be found. Something special happens on the way home from the shelter that leaves readers wondering: Who is really rescuing whom?
