Jon Katz fell for Maria but Maria came at a price, her dog Frieda. Frieda had been an unloved stray, had lived on the streets for some years and was understandably wary of strangers and protective of the owner she adored. To stay with Maria Jon had to win over Frieda and his story is a disarming one of human – and canine love.

Synopsis

The Dog Nobody Loved by Jon Katz

I had no idea that Frieda would enter my life and alter it in the most profound way, but that's one of the beautiful things about animals. They change you, and you almost never see it coming. When writer Jon Katz met Maria Wulf, a quiet, sensitive artist he felt a connection with her immediately, but a formidable obstacle stood in the way: Maria's dog, Frieda. A rottweiler-shepherd mix who had been abandoned and living in the wild for several years, Frieda was ferociously protective. She roared and charged at almost anyone who came near. But to Maria, she was her sweet, loyal and devoted friend. Jon quickly realised that to win over Maria, he'd have to make friends with Frieda too. The Dog Nobody Loved is the heart-warming story of how one man and a dog discovered it's never too late to find love. Please note, The Dog Nobody Loved is the UK title for the book published in the US as The Second-Chance Dog.
