A Dog like Daisy, by Kristin O‘Donnell Tubb, is a really good book about a dog named Daisy. She is a pitbull mix with a torn ear, a torn ear with memories of a bad past. Parts of her life are told throughout the story.

Daisy is at a kill shelter where each dog gets only fourteen days to get adopted. If they don’t get adopted in the fourteen days, they go through the Bad Side Door. The dogs that go in the Bad Side Door don’t come out, and Daisy has 2 days left until she goes through the Bad Side Door!

But Colonel Victor comes to adopt a dog to train as a service dog for his PTSD. PTSD is a disorder that some people may develop if they experience a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. Victor chooses Daisy.

If  Daisy passes all her tests, she will stay with her new family. If she fails, she will have to go back to the shelter!

Daisy needs to  help Victor. It is her purpose. Or so Daisy thinks. Victor’s PTSD is not the only thing in the house that needs Daisy’s help.

I’d recommend this book for ages 9-11. Have fun reading!

    This is an amazing article! I think that is important that Daisy helps people with PTSD. But, I am shocked that people own shelters that have a “Bad Side Door”, and they only have fourteen days to get adopted.

    Great review Hannah:). It’s very saddening that a dog only has fourteen days to live in a kill shelter. Thank goodness Daisy was adopted hopefully she can complete the proper tasks for Victor. 🙂
