Please buy my book--it's for a good cause!" --Dixie
If you love dogs and/or are contemplating adding a new puppy to your family, you will LOVE A Home for Dixie. Written by 15 year old Emma Jackson, this book is the true story of an abandoned puppy who not only finds a loving home, but a new best friend in Emma.
More than anything else, Emma wanted a puppy of her own. Finally her parents agreed and together they decide to rescue an abandoned puppy, one who desperately needs care and a home. Fortunately for both girl and dog, Emma adopts such a puppy, names her Dixie, and in each other they find the companionship they've been looking for. With bonus information on how to support local animal shelters--and even adopt a rescued dog of your own--this uplifting story is the perfect companion for any dog-loving family. The story of Emma and Dixie is illustrated with adorable photographs of the two best friends.
A donation in Dixie's name has been made to Petfinder.com and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of A Home for Dixie will be donated to Aunt Mary's Doghouse, an all volunteer non-profit organization that rescues dogs from overcrowded shelters and the streets and the shelter where Dixie was adopted from. The dogs are brought into their foster network where they live with foster families until they find a permanent loving home.
A heartwarming story, A Home for Dixie teaches young readers about community service and the rewards kids reap from performing good deeds. Perfect for kids ages 4-8 but kids of all ages, even 99 year olds, will love this story. Kudos to 15 year old Emma Jackson for a job well done!
