The Dog With Nine Lives

Author: Della Galton Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/10/2010

When Della found a stray dog living wild with her thirteen puppies on a beach in Rhodes she was determined not to get involved. But fate had other ideas and Della brought Lindy back to England. Lindy had already proved herself to be a true survivor, but she was more of a survivor than Della had ever dreamed. Over the next eight years she survived a series of events, any one of which might have finished off a lesser dog than Lindy. They included: being stampeded by a herd of angry cows; a rare life threatening form of anaemia; being swept down the river after chasing ducks; falling out of a car travelling at speed, and getting lost for a night in a forest. The Dog with Nine Lives is both poignant and humorous. Dog lovers will love it. It is the true story of a very special dog.
