Hero was having a perfect day, flying through the heavens with the other angel dogs. Perfect, that is, until he asked the Shelter Angel, who watches over all the animals that are up for adoption, if he could go back to earth and become a shelter dog. After all, he thought, what could be better than having a very special person choose you – out of all the other dogs – to come home and live with them?

As Hero is about to find out, things don’t always turn out the way you plan. Sometimes they turn out better!

Filled with beautiful illustrations, this simple book tells the story of an angel dog who comes back to earth to experience the joy of being adopted. But will anyone be able to see how extraordinary this old shelter dog, with the wobbly back leg, really is?

Come join Hero on his journey home.
