The Heartwarming Story of a Hero Dog

Mama Lucca, a Marine dog, worked the front lines with her handler identifying IEDs before an unlucky soldier stepped on one. That day Mama Lucca wasn't lucky. She found the explosives, but severely wounded her foot. This is the story of the tremendous love between a man and his dog.

The book covers Mama Lucca and Rod's career from training through the accident. The story is hard to put down. Working dogs and their handlers have a special relationship. This comes through clearly in this beautifully written, compassionately told story.

I highly recommend this book. It's a testimonial to the courage of the men and their dogs risking their lives on the battlefield to save the lives of others. If you love animals, don't miss this book.

I reviewed this book for Net Galley.
