Life is good for the Little Tiger-Striped Dog. He has food to eat, water to drink, a safe place to sleep and someone who loves him until one fateful day … His world turns upside down when he is left alone in the country to fend for himself! 

Dropped-Off Dog (A Mostly-True “Tail”) tells the fictional history of a real dog and how he came to live in rural California’s San Joaquin Valley. After a journey from happiness and plenty through abandonment, hunger and fear, the Little Tiger-Striped Dog makes his way to a house with another “dropped-off dog” and two people who recognize his struggle. They adopt him and he “really, truly lives happily ever after.”

Although the beginning is fiction, it is a real story about an animal with the theme of hope, to bring awareness to the real issue of animal abandonment and homelessness.
