This poignant memoir, Freddie: The Rescue Dog Who Rescued Me (Heritage $24.95) captures the transformative impact of Freddie on the life of biographer Grant Hayter-Menzies. Rescued from a puppy mill in 2010, Freddie became a source of inspiration for Hayter-Menzies’s exploration of the human-animal bond in his writings. As he assisted Freddie in overcoming early traumas, the pup reciprocated by providing support during challenging times. Freddie’s presence by his side takes an emotional turn when the dog faces a tough battle against cancer in 2020, culminating in a heartwarming tribute that underscores the profound lessons animals teach us about love, loyalty and courage. 9781772034615
