    A compelling true story of one dog's rescue from a Pennsylvania puppy mill

    This touching narrative uses the poignant makeover of Gracie, a sickly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, to tell the story of America's hidden puppy mills-commercial kennels that breed dogs in horrific living conditions and churn out often-diseased and emotionally damaged puppies for sale.

    Saving Gracie chronicles how one little dog is transformed from a bedraggled animal worn out from bearing puppies into a loving, healthy member of her new family; and how her owner, Linda Jackson, is changed from a person who barely tolerated dogs to a woman passionately determined not only to save Gracie's life, but also to get the word out about the millions of American puppy mill dogs who need our help.

    • A touching story of survival and redemption
    • Written by award-winning journalist Carol Bradley
    • Newsworthy issues call animal lovers to action

    Join journalist Carol Bradley as she draws back the curtain on the world of illegal puppy production in Saving Gracie.
