Dogs are man’s best friends and women’s too. Dogs are more than friends they can be heroes also. There are many types of dogs who are heroes in different ways. There are hearing dogs, guide dogs for the blind, service dogs, war dogs, and so many more. This book tells you stories of how dogs have become heroes and how they have helped so many people. For example, a dog named Bullet saved a baby’s life by advising his parents that he was chocking. If Bullet had not been there the baby would have passed away. This book is very informative and great for books to learn more about dogs and what else dogs can do than just be pets. They also define the words in the back if you did not understand them. This is a great informative book to read. ( )
