Four-Legged Miracles

Heartwarming Tales of Lost Dogs’ Journeys Home

By Brad Steiger & Sherry Hansen Steiger

This is a collection of true canine stories. The dogs in this very poignant book have all been lost, but unbelievably found their way home. Finding the homes and families that they knew they belonged with drove them onward.

The canine instincts and intuition of these amazing dogs helped them against seemingly insurmountable odds. These stories also highlight the intelligence and courage of the “family dog”.

Fighting natural disasters, predators, injuries, unknown conditions of both weather and terrain, these dogs not only survived but persevered until attaining their goal of reunion with their family.

Following a tornado, Mason the terrier crawled home on two broken legs. Buca sat for over two months on a Utah hill, overlooking an Interstate, waiting for his family car to return for him. A Beagle named Eddie walked over 450 miles to reunite and help his disable little boy. These are just some of the examples of canine love and loyalty.

The book is filled with heartwarming stories. I highly recommend this book to animal lovers, especially those who have ever loved and been loved by a dog.


  1. These are the kinds of stories that make me cry ... a good kind of cry, but they really pull at my heart strings. Sounds like a good one for a rainy day (and we certainly are having a lot of those these days). Good Review, McGuffy ...
