One Good Dog by Susan Wilson

Branch Manager, Pine Valley Branch
Adam March, a self-made millionaire seems to have it all, living a picture perfect life, surrounded by wealth and privilege. Then, in one instant, all of that changes, and he finds himself alone, unemployed, and doing community service in a homeless shelter. Chance, a pit bull mix bred as a fighting dog, living in a dark and vicious world, takes an opportune moment to escape from his captors. Human and dog come together as both fight for a chance at a new life. This is a story of love, loyalty, new discoveries, and redemption, told from the point of view of Adam March, but also from the point of view of Chance, the former fighting dog. Just a warning: the dog fighting scenes and the horror of dog fighting in general is rather descriptive.
