Will You Take Me Home?: The brave rescue dog from the puppy farm who became a movie star (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The first book in the Paws of Fame series

Pickles has just had her litter of six puppies taken away from her - who knows how many litters she's delivered and watched the same thing happen to. She's been left behind in an overcrowded, noisy and dirty barn and she's very weak - the human who comes around once a day doesn't give the dogs much food and Pickles isn't big or aggressive enough to get a fair share. Her ears itch with mites and her body is burning all over from a painful skin condition. This has been her life for six years and it will likely never change.

But then she meets Julie. Julie is a young animal trainer for the movies and is looking for a Yorkshire Terrier for a new film she's working on with Colin Firth and Amanda Bynes. By chance, she hears of a puppy farm that has been raided - the dogs were kept in appalling conditions, and the now the poor surviving mothers need new homes. The breed of the dogs? Yorkshire Terriers.

Julie doesn't know whether Pickles will be the right dog for the film, but she doesn't care; Pickles needs a safe home with love and care and Julie can give it. Will Pickles recover from the traumas of her past? Can she be the movie star Julie is looking for? And will Julie be able to make it in the world of movie animal trainers? Will You Take Me Home? is the moving true story of one woman and her dog.
