Contact: Shelley Frost
650/906-8296 Â President-elect Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are to be commended for their decision to adopt a pup in need rather than follow the AKC's push for purchasing a purebred. Yet any time you add a new member to your family, especially a four-footed one, whether it's in the White House or any other house, you're bound to hit some snags.
Shelley Frost and Katerina Lorenzatos Makris are here to help. They have just shipped a copy of YOUR ADOPTED DOG to Malia and Sasha Obama, and are eager to assist ALL pooch adopters and rescuers.
The authors are veteran guests on national and local radio and TV. WithÂ extensive backgrounds in dog rescue as well as journalism and video production, they are lively, passionate and well-informed about their cause.
Shelley's photogenic adopteeÂ Kellie steals theÂ show at media appearances. Or, upon request, the authors can bring alongÂ dogs available for adoption.
The Humane Society of the United States says, If you're contemplating involvement in rescue... or have adopted a rescue dog, this book will help you understand and navigatethe risks and rewards of your new adventure."
The Bark Magazine says, "Frost and Makris prepare the public (in adopting a dog) as I wish I had been prepared. These authors are fearless, and they've lived every moment of the dog-rescuing life."

MORE PRAISE FOR 'YOUR ADOPTED DOG'
"Whether working on their own, as part of an adoption group or in a shelter, those who rescue homeless dogs are a special breed. Rescue requires compassion, dedication and lots of work. If you're contemplating involvement in rescue, have just started out or have adopted a rescue dog, this book will help you understand and navigate the risks and rewards of your new adventure." --Nancy Petersen, The Humane Society of the United States
Â Â "After 29 years in the animal protection movement and reading many articles on animal care and rescue YOUR ADOPTED DOG blew me away.Â It covered every aspect of not only rescue and care but just about any question you could have come up with regarding dogs.Â It is filled with very simple and understandable "guides" and "how to" solutions to often asked questions.Â It's brilliant, it says it the way it is, and it's a must read for anyone who just cares about animals.Â I've learned a lot from this book and so will you!" --Chris DeRose, Last Chance for Animals
"The salvation, protection or care of other sentient beings brings us much closer to our own humanity. Dogs, who are known to perceive as well as absorb our energies are often guileless mirrors to our own condition. This book is a convenient and comprehensive guide to satisfying the desire to help those in need--in deeds. A must read for those who want to do the right thing by and for our "best friends." --Esai Morales, actor/activist Â
"Anyone and everyone will benefit from this complete and total resource supporting the rescuing, caregiving, and adoption of our homeless and stray companion animals. If you're interested in adopting or know someone who is, I predict this to be the future encyclopedia on companion care. With this book you will never be without an answer or a support system." --Debra Wilson Skelton, actress and animal advocate
"Frost and Makris prepare the public (in adopting a dog) as I wish I had been prepared. Your Adopted Dog manages to be both matter-of-fact and magnanimous in tone. If rescue is your passion, you will find Your Adopted Dog useful." Marti Hohman, The BARK Magazine
