Meet Sadie the Dog Who Survived Cruelty and Death

August 17, 2019 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Sadie’s story is about how an unwanted dog inspired the world. Her book is called, Saving Sadie. She will be with her human, Joal Derse Dauer, at our Burr Ridge bookstore.

Sadie has come a long way from her previous life of cruelty and exploitation. Shot and left to die, Sadie was found bleeding alone in the mountains of Kentucky with a bullet hole between her eyes and another in her back. She had been left to die after delivering a litter of puppies. Strangers found Sadie, took her to a veterinarian, and Starfish Animal Rescue had her transported to a shelter in Wisconsin. Little did Joal Derse Dauer expect to meet Sadie there!
