Jennifer S. Holland is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Unlikely Friendships: 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom, Unlikely Loves: 43 True Heartwarming Stories from the Animal Kingdom and Unlikely Heroes: 37 Inspiring Stories of Courage and Heart from the Animal Kingdom.

In her beloved New York Times bestsellers Unlikely Friendships, Unlikely Loves, and Unlikely Heroes, Jennifer Holland revealed the surprising emotional bonds that exist between animals of different species. Now comes a heartwarming and inspirational book for the tens of millions of dog owners and dog lovers. Unlikely Friendships: Dogs brings together twenty-seven new stories of canine kindness and courage, plus a handful of classic tales involving dogs from Unlikely Friendships, Unlikely Loves, and Unlikely Heroes. 

Meet Rex, a Belgian Malinois who learned to love and trust again through the improbable friendship of a goose. Popeye the Mastiff, who ran into a burning stable and saved seventeen terrified horses by nibbling at their hooves. And a pit bull named Dolly, whose antics with her best friend, Sheldon the tortoise, include games of tag. (Yes, picture a tortoise running after a dog!)

  Enhanced with beautiful full-color photographs, these true stories of camaraderie, affection, and remarkable bravery are more than a lovely tribute; they are proof that dogs are every creature’s best friend.
