From a border collie at a shopping mall to a pit bull in a Mississippi truck stop, The Dogs Who Found Me recounts the stories of a dozen dogs who chose author Ken Foster to rescue them. Initially reluctant, Foster set a four-hour time limit for placing the first strange dog he brought into his New York City apartment, only to discover that this would be the first of many dogs who would seemingly choose him to lead them, one way or another, to their new home.

You''ll meet:

--Sinatra, a blue-eyed collie found tied beneath a New York City bench.
--Zephyr, a rottweiler who jumps from a pickup on a Florida highway.
--Katrina, a nearly autistic yard dog abandoned after her owners'' divorce.
--An 85-pound pit bull found greeting customers at a truck stop on Valentine''s Day.
--An abused border collie discovered wandering a designer outlet mall.
--A puppy left on Manhattan''s East River, and the social worker that sought the dog''s return to her homeless clients.
--And finally, Sula, who returned to her abandoned birthplace after surviving a vicious dog fight.

In addition to the personal stories, The Dogs Who Found Me offers expert advice and answers the essential questions: How should you approach an abandoned dog? How do you integrate a temporary animal guest into your household? What resources are available in your area? Are some dogs beyond rescue? Why do some dogs fear your help? Should we ever give up on a dog?

Part memoir, part how-to, The Dogs Who Found Me is a moving and practical portrait of the national community of dog rescuers, foster homes, and the dogs who found them.

Ken Foster is the editor of two anthologies, including Dog Culture. His collection of short stories, The Kind I'm Likely to Get, was a New York Times Notable Book. His work has appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The San Francisco Chronicle, McSweeney's, and The Believer. He has taught at The New School, Florida State University, and the University of Southern Mississippi. He lives in New Orleans, with at least three dogs.
