This is a story of a Mississippi dog that found hope and a home of her own. A little dog left to die in the woods by previous owners finds her way down a country road to a life of travel and adventure. She decides to adopt a human couple and rescue them from being alone in the country and foreign lands. Gerettet! (which means "rescued") is a story to inspire others to rescue the many available animals in shelters. Yes, you may only be able to rescue an animal; still, that one can change your life!
I am the bridge
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush
Because my heart melted when I saw you.
Matted and sore, limping, depressed,
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
-Diana Morgan, "A Poem to My Foster Dog"
