BOOK OVERVIEW: Once a proud and independent game dog, a German Shorthaired Pointer finds himself abandoned by his owner. Surviving as best he can, the desperate sporting dog finds his way to caring people who are determined to help the unfortunate animal.

But who will provide a permanent home for this pointer, whose rare hunting skills are unknown to his new human friends?

Will the newly named Leo live up to his namesake and regain his pride and courage as a hunter

MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK: This is one of several Pat Becker books for dog lovers of all ages. Her previous works, The Search for Paradise, Bodacious Bo the Pound Prince and The Saga of Buddy Payless also feature lost or abandoned game dogs making their way as best they can in a world controlled by humans, who are all-too often indifferent to the feelings and well-being of dogs.

Like the previous two books, Lucky Leo is illustrated by artist Sherry Brown-Judy, who realistically portrays these game dogs with her compelling sketches.
