Inspired by a real dog from Danny & Ron’s Rescue from the popular documentary, Life in the Doghouse, this third book in a sweet chapter book series follows a pair of pups hoping to find a new home together.

Millie and Daisy are two bonded dogs who’ve been through a lifetime of ups and downs together. Finally finding safety at Danny & Ron’s Rescue, Millie settles in easily, while Daisy still feels anxious, especially during thunderstorms.

A big adoption event for the rescue dogs is coming up, and Millie can’t wait. She wants to convince a family to take both her and Daisy together, so she comes up with a plan to make them stand out. Daisy’s not so sure she wants to be adopted though and thinks that while adoption may be right for Millie, living at the rescue is what’s right for her. But Daisy doesn’t like the thought of being apart from Millie, and she doesn’t want to ruin Millie’s dreams.

As the big day arrives, will Millie and Daisy be able to find the right solution for both of them? Or does finding their perfect forever homes mean saying goodbye to each other?

Danny Robertshaw is a horse trainer and animal lover who began helping dogs way before 2005. But when Hurricane Katrina hit, he and Ron Danta began their rescue in earnest as they saved over six hundred dogs from that national disaster. For their work during Katrina, they were 2008 ASPCA Honorees of the Year. Since then, Danny and Ron have used their personal home for Danny & Ron’s Rescue, formed as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that has saved over thirteen thousand dogs, all placed in loving homes. Danny, Ron, and their rescue were the subjects of the award-winning documentary Life in the Doghouse. They have also been featured on the Today show, CBS Evening News, the Hallmark Channel, and Pickler & Ben, as well as several other TV shows. Their mission is a lifetime promise of love and care to every dog they take in. Visit them @DannyRonsRescue and DannyRonsRescue.org, and learn more at LifeintheDoghouseMovie.com.
