Well written - but not as enjoyable as I had hoped. The writer likes to include scientific studies and such about dogs and info about how the breed compares to wolves, etc., and I just wanted to read about the dog rescue aspect of his work. There was some of that, and especially at the end, it became quite dramatic.
