About the author
Janie Nugent has written two books to raise awareness and funds for animal rescue shelters and adoption. The real Doug "D-Pug" was 8 years old when he was adopted by her family. Doug was such a wonderful dog it made her realize how important it was to consider older pets when adopting.
She has given her books to schools, libraries and shelters. Reading to the children at schools and libraries has made D-Pug a popular character! "A Dog for Michael: Doug to the Rescue" tells the story of Doug's adoption in Florida. The second book, "D-Pug in New York", continues their story once they moved to New York.
It's her hope that parents and educators will turn children toward the books—the stories will delight children just learning to read, and purchase of the books will support a wonderful program.
