My personal thoughts:
John and George: The dog who changed my life.
"A good read "- Interesting when compared to other similar homeless/ animal stories as well. Enjoyed it a lot, it is more about the man as the title suggests.
It is about how one dog positively affected one man's life...
There are a real openness and honesty in the writing, and it seems aimed at highlighting what it is like to be homeless, the struggles and Mindset, without dwelling on it or asking for any kind of pity.
It is an Inspiring story, the positive drive that having a little dog (George) gave John (man) the push he required and needed to turn his life around and what it made him do.
It is not about how he got rich!
It is about how he found a way to make a living and give something back to the World.
It is a story I found "Worth " reading!!
Who would not love a success story about a man and his adorable dog?
Ps; Not suitable for Miss Cruella De Vil .
