Josie’s Story | Josie & Vernita Leins


“I am a yellow Lab who is adopted from a rescue group and arrives in my new home untrained and with no life experience. In my own words, with my own opinions and humor, I describe my new life, my struggles and successes, and what I enjoy, resist, or think quite ridiculous, until I finally understand the value of communication, training, human leadership, and working as a team.
My mom explains the difference between a therapy and service dog, the responsibilities of dog ownership, and the importance of consistency and bonding. A fun and informative read for anyone who loves dogs!”
