Ellie’s Story, A Dog’s Purpose Novel
by W. Bruce Cameron
A Starscape Book, 2015

Ellie, a German Shepard, tells her story from the time she was a pup through her experiences as a trained search and rescue dog.  She shares how she was trained.  She shares the excitement and stress of searches, when lives are at stake and everyone is counting on her nose.  And she shares the thrill and importance of her being a chopper dog.  All part of her work, she shares the loss of her trainer when he is injured in a rescue and her own injury while on a rescue.  A heart-warming and a sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat story.

Readers will develop their own thinking skills as they read how Ellie thinks through challenging situations.
