Description
Finley's first owner leaves him with his mother when he heads out to fight the war in Afghanistan. Two years later, she receives tragic news. Her son has died in a helicopter crash. Grief stricken and unable to take care of him any longer, she drops Finley off at the Humane Society. Finley sinks into a deep depression, but a dog trainer there sees his potential and brings him to a nearby prison. There he's enrolled in a special program that tries to transform shelter dogs into service dogs who help Wounded Warriors. Amy Wallace, a former meth addict in her last year of prison for shoplifting, has never owned a dog before. She's selected to become Finley's trainer. Chris Seger, a marine who lost his leg in an IED blast, is plagued even more by his struggles with PTSD. A friend tells him about this prison program. Chris reluctantly checks it out, though he can't imagine how a dog can possibly help. Rescuing Finley is a moving story about the mysterious power of God's love and how he uses a dog to mend two broken lives -- the female inmate who trains Finley and the Afghan war vet who adopts him.

display_description"Amy Wallace has made plenty of mistakes in her young life, but she didn't see this one coming. Chris Seger is a marine serving in Afghanistan. His life is forever altered by a single, fateful step. A mother of another Afghan war vet suffers a devastating loss, which changes the course of Finley's life for good. Finley is a mostly golden retriever, who suddenly finds himself alone and confused in a dog shelter. Later, he's brought to a local prison to be trained in a special program for female inmates. Could this prison actually become the place where Finley finally finds his freedom? Rescuing Finley tells the story of how one rescue dog powerfully impacts three tragic lives and puts all of them on a road toward redemption and healing." --Page 4 of cover.
