Ellen came to meet Mollie at the veterinarian's request and ended up adopting her. The book chronicles the next ten years telling the story of how Ellen and her family with much patience and understanding worked with Mollie to change her behavior and win over her love. Along the journey they learned that Mollie had been badly abused making her transformation even more rewarding. Mollie was a cherished family member until her death.

Ellen, Sherry in the book, first met Mollie, a healthy, four-year old sheltie, at the request of her veterinarian.

She knew Ellen loved shelties and hoped her family would adopt Mollie. When Ellen first brought Mollie home her family was shocked by her behavior. She hid and cowered in fear of them. Over time they would figure out that Mollie had been badly abused causing her fear of humans. Ellen wondered if Mollie would ever recover, but in time with much patience and understanding she became a beloved family member who was deeply cherished until her death. A great story especially for those who want to rescue.
