— Publishers Weekly
"In this heartwarming memoir, Achterberg lovingly describes the ups and downs of her first two years rehabilitating 50 dogs for new lives in ‘forever homes.’ Illustrated with photographs of some of Achterberg's many fosters, this book blends insight and entertainment to tell an unforgettable story about seeking, and finding, life purpose through caring for abandoned dogs. A compassionate and humane canine tale."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Witty and full of love, [Achterberg’s] memoir beautifully captures the personalities of the dogs she’s helped save and recounts the concurrent struggles in her family life, particularly watching her teenagers fly the nest. This easy read is a must for animal lovers and those interested in volunteering with animals and a good choice for reluctant readers."
"A big hearted, inspiring and passionate look at a critical piece of the rescue puzzle. Lucky are the dogs who pass through Achterberg’s arms on their way to the lives they so richly deserve. It takes a very special person to open her heart and home to a succession of hard luck dogs looking for their forever families for it means falling in love every time and then saying goodbye over and over and over again. Honest and engaging."
— Peter Zheutlin, New York Times bestselling author of 'Rescue Road'
"A love letter not only to the dogs she fostered, but to all the dogs she hopes to save in the future."
— Kim Kavin, author of 'The Dog Merchants'
"Cara Sue Achterberg has in fact written another good book about dogs, but even more so she has produced a manifesto on how to change the world: through single acts of caring and compassion stacked one on top of another without end."
— Jim Gorant, author of the New York Times bestseller 'The Lost Dogs'
"Ask any homeless dog to name his heart’s desire, and I suspect the answer would be a forever home. Sometimes, though, there are stops along the way to that longed-for destination. That’s where people like Cara Sue Achterberg come into the picture. Another Good Dog
has to be the ‘feel good’ book of the year. The perfect gift."
