Do you want to dump your dog because he tries to escape your yard? Barks too much? You-know-whats in the house? Doesn't play well with others? Chewed up your favorite pair of shoes?

You wouldn't be the first person asking to "return" your pet. And dog rescuer Randy Grim has heard every reason under the sun. But before you load Fido into the back of your car, read this book.

In it, Randy addresses the concerns of dog guardians everywhere by responding to letters that he's actually received. With humor, and from his vast experiences with abandoned dogs, he reveals exactly what you can do to remain calm and fix every bad behavior problem. (Even if it means dumping your husband instead of the dog.)

Excellent: funny, good advice, and the example dogs are worse than your dog.

If only all rescue groups had the money to send a copy of this book home with the new guardians! Or at least insist they buy it as part of the adoption contract.
Randy's straight-forward manner assists you to deal with the problem behaviour instantly. And his signature style will leave you laughing. He is indeed a saint for what he does-guys like him are true heroes!

I loved this book!! I so admire Randy Grim for the work he does. He sees the most heart-breaking, gut-wrenching things and yet he has the most awesome sense of humor. This book was helpful and informative and it had me rolling on the floor in tears!! It is hilarious!! I can really relate to the author.

Randy Grim has a heart of gold and many anxieties that accompany it. The two most notable passages were those of his pit bull and his unappreciative neighbors and those about the chihuahua mix left on the doorstep in a diaper. Their ensuing battles in the kitchen and with the friend who "owes [him] money" were so enjoyable.

This is a very practical book of advice on correcting difficult dog behavior, despite the fact -- no, wait... AS A BONUS it is told by a neurotic, snarky guy with a twisted sense of humor. Loved it!!
