Win 1 of 3 copies of the Miracle Mutts Book

Win 1 of 3 copies of 'Miracle Mutts' ...

Written by Laura Greaves a multi-award-winning journalist, author and proud 'crazy dog lady'. Now a freelance writer, Laura has written for countless dog and pet-specific print and web publications. She's also the author of the collections: Incredible Dog Journeys, Dogs with Jobs and The Rescuers and more.

A miracle is described as an extraordinary event not explicable by natural or scientific laws. 

She has found and documented these miracles from around the world in Miracle Mutts, a collection of fifteen heart-warming stories of dogs who have survived - and thrived - against all odds.

Dogs are known for their generous hearts, energy and grit. In times of hardship when hope is lost, it’s the underdogs of the world who have the most to teach us. 

Some of the dogs featured include:

Fergus: a Golden Retriever abused and burned only to be rescued and working as a therapy dog for burn survivors.
Jake: a Pit Bull puppy saved from a fire by his firefighter neighbour, and now an honorary fire department mascot.
Guy: a Beagle found malnourished and alone in a forest only to be adopted by Meghan Markle.
Maggie: shot 17 times on the streets of Beirut and blinded, is now providing support to stressed-out students and aged-care residents in the United Kingdom.
Kalu: a brave and strong spirited dog who lost her puppies and three of her legs in a farming accident.
Millie: a disabled Greyhound who became Australia’s first bionic dog.

Miracle Mutts demonstrates the power of compassion and the incredible spirits of dogs in the face of adversity. 

You’ll find impossible survival stories, humans and animals with hearts of gold, and recovery from unimaginable cruelty. As you turn the last page, you’ll find yourself believing in miracles. A brilliant Christmas gift for any dog lover!
