Every rescue dog has a tale to tell, a story uniquely their own. A Place to Call Home is Toby's tale. Born on a small farm in northern California, Toby narrowly escapes the death sentence imposed on him by his breeder. Through a series of events driven by good intentions, he finds himself in a Connecticut suburb where life with his new family soon collapses on him, and his newfound happiness is brutally destroyed. On his quest to find a place to call home, Toby encounters and endures the best and worst of humanity as he comes face to face with sorrow and joy, fear and courage, and ultimately, with the power of love. Author G.A. Whitmore has poured her passion for writing and her love of dogs into her juvenile fiction series, The Rescue Dog Tales. A Place to Call Home, inspired by an abused dog she adopted from the Connecticut Humane Society, is the first book in the series. Told from the perspectives of both the human characters and the animals depicted in the story, A Place to Call Home is a compelling and touching story for young adult readers and dog lovers of all ages.
