Win 1 of 4 copies of Amazing Aussie Dogs - True Blue tales of clever and courageous canines

Some say Australia was built on the sheep’s back, but it’s just as true to say our nation was built in the dog kennel – after all, it was the dogs that were rounding up the sheep!

Australians love their dogs – we’re home to more than 6 million pet pooches – and they love us right back. These are the stories of some of our most remarkable canine companions, embodying the spirit of hard work, mateship and larrikinism.

Dogs like DJ the Border Collie, who survived for days after falling into floodwater near Lismore. 

Kimmy the Kelpie, who sold for a record-breaking amount at a working-dog auction. 

Basil the Rottweiler, who defied the misconceptions about his breed and saved a drowning child. 

'Mumma Zura' the American Staffordshire Terrier who became a doting mum to over 200 foster puppies.

And Lexi the Jack Russell terrier, who learned to ‘drive’ a ute through the paddocks on her farm.

Our faithful four-legged friends save us from peril, inspire works of art and offer unwavering loyalty. In Amazing Aussie Dogs, Laura Greaves brings to life these inspirational true stories of our homegrown heroes.

Written by Laura Greaves a multi-award-winning journalist, author and proud 'crazy dog lady'. Now a freelance writer, Laura has spent more than twenty years writing for newspapers in magazines in Australia and around the world. She's also the author of the collections: Incredible Dog JourneysDogs with Jobs, The Rescuers, Miracle Mutts, Extraordinary Old Dogs, A Dog's Best Friend as well as 3 romantic comedies which feature an extensive supporting cast of cheeky canines! She was twice won the Dog Writers Association of America's Rio Award, which recognises the best book about a dog that has impacted a human's life in a profoundly positive way.
