About the Author

NANCY FURSTINGER has been speaking up for animals since she learned to talk, and she hasn't shut up yet. She is the author of many books on her favorite topic: animals! Nancy has been a feature writer for a daily newspaper, a managing editor of trade and consumer magazines, and an editor at twochildren's book publishing houses. She shares her home with big dogs and house rabbits (all rescued), and also volunteers and fosters pets for several animal organizations. This is her first book for National Geographic."


"The bonds between more than 20 military and law enforcement dogs and their handlers are lovingly and proudly shown in this compact, fact- and photo-filled offering. [This book]... addresses a wide range of interests and age levels and will make readers want to go home and hug the doggie heroes in own their lives" -- Booklist "The photographs will make this highly appealing to dog lovers who will also find the brief text and short chapters easy to manage." -- Kirkus "This amazing book offers prose that is fast-paced and super-factual, but is written in a conversational style that keeps readers engaged to the fullest....This is a National Geographic book, so the pictures live up to their brand." -- New York Journal of Books --
