My Review:

In this true story, it’s hard not to fall in love with Gobi, a stray dog found in the Gobi Desert. How this little dog was able to survive on his own is amazing in itself, but imagine finding your best friend out in the middle of nowhere!

The illustrations were on point. This is just a wonderful, heartwarming story for all animal lovers.
Thank you to Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for this e-copy in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own.

If you would like to read more on this true story Leonard has written another book that was published in 2017 called Finding Gobi. It goes into greater detail of Dion’s account of finding Gobi and his efforts to try to bring him home. An amazing story of hope and friendship!



I am so glad I found this story. It’s for anyone that loves animals. Thank you to Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for this ARC, my opinions are my own.

Have you read either of these books or heard of this amazing story? Happy Reading Friends!❤️
