In the novel One Good Dog, a man and a dog lift each other out of their desperate situations. Things were pretty bad for both of them.

The dog, Chance, is a pitbull, raised to fight. He's a champion, excellent at killing his opponents. He spent most of his younger days in training or locked in a cage in a dark basement.

The man, Adam, lost his mother then was put in foster care by his father. Now, as an adult, he has made his way up the corporate ladder by acting ruthless and cruel. He works for a cosmetic company where he defends experiments conducted on animals. He makes no friends at work and is only interested in wealth and status. One day his self centered attitude and memories of a tragedy from his past come together to push him toward a violent reaction. The result for Adam is serious legal problems and the loss of everything he values. This is where the book really gets going. Both Chance and Adam have hit bottom and need help.

All books where dogs are personified require some suspension of disbelief, but this one requires more than most. The readers have to accept that Chance thinks like a human. That's to be expected. In this novel, however, both Chance and Adam have to overcome their violent pasts. That is rare for both dogs and humans. But this is their story and I was pulling for them both.

I recommend this book for anyone who likes stories of redemption.

Good story of a dog and his boy, but the boy is grown up. Having gone from foster homes to the height of his profession, he falls when his rage takes over and he hits a woman who moves too slowly. After losing his job, and his wife and his daughter turned against him, he has to endure community service in a welfare kitchen. He tries to make a new life, slowly, and ends up finding a dog for a homeless man who disappears, and ends up with the wrong dog. The story then goes back and forth between the man and the dog, who sometimes has better sense than the man has. The story from the dog's point of view are well written. The story from the man's point of view can sometimes be tedious. Basically it is the coming of age story of an adult man. Nevertheless, a good read and a good beach or rainy day at the lake cottage book. Dog lovers will like this. ( )

This was one of those books that I grabbed from the free day at the library book sale without a second thought. I was actually pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Seeing the main character get knocked down from his lofty perch and lose everything that he had worked for made me feel for the man, especially seeing how his teenage daughter treated him. At first, I was annoyed with his attitude about things, but as the story went on, I enjoyed getting to see him develop and move past the obstacles that his history placed in front of him.

The chapters where we read from the viewpoint of the dog were surprisingly well written. I expected them to be cheesy and just kind of thrown together, but I was wrong. They were some of my favorite parts. I love dogs myself so seeing things from this dog's point of view tugged on my heart strings.

The ending actually made me shed a tear or two. I would definitely give this one a read if you enjoy stories where people are forced to pull themselves up by their bootsraps and with the help of four-legged companions :) ( )
