Description
A fascinating look at the work that dogs do, from herding sheep to rescuing lost and injured people. One day last year Gus caught a burglar. Bruno saved a man from drowning. Abby cheered up sick children at a hospital. Max starred in a movie. Hard-working people? No. Hard-working dogs! Every dog is born with the ability to do a particular job. Centuries ago, people recognized these natural talents and began using dogs to help them with a variety of chores. Whether hunting and pulling sleds or performing before royalty, these beloved animals have been important workers as well as faithful friends. Best-selling author Marilyn Singer gives young readers an exciting introduction to the many kinds of work that dogs do. This is the ultimate dog book -- a thrilling combination of natural history and the true tales of canine heroes who were just doing their jobs.
