Meet Mack, Dog Bowl contestant and social media star; Marco, a scary tough dog—until someone gave him a second chance; Shaq, a gentle giant who is learning to leave his fears behind; Prince, a laid back dude who doesn’t let being blind steal his sunshine; and JuneBug, a spunky sweetheart who just wants to cuddle and keep you safe from the vacuum cleaner. Each chapter in Homecoming Tales focuses on one canine companion from the Tennessee-based dog rescue, with fun facts about his or her breed, stories of silly antics, and the meaningful tale of how this canine companion found a forever family. This delightful middle grade book entertains, teaches, and inspires and will be a new favorite for fans of A Dog’s Purpose and the Puppy Tales series.

Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary is a forever foster home sanctuary in beautiful Mount Juliet, Tennessee.

While providing lifetime homes for senior dogs, OFSDS strives to raise awareness about the joys and challenges of living with older dogs: “We do not concern ourselves with the quantity of time that they have left, rather with the quality of the life we can provide them for that time.”
