Marley meets… Cujo ? What would you do if there was a dog in your neighborhood forced to live outside day in/ day out, at the mercy of abusers, wild animals and brutal weather? Walter does nothing-at first. Then, an accidental meeting with Lance, a Border Collie, sets the wheels in motion for a down-to-the-wire, life-saving rescue and a disappointing discovery: Lance turns out to be a threat to anyone he can get his teeth on-including his rescuers! Their lives turned upside down by this semi-feral "pet", Walter and his wife Clara are forced to answer a painful question: do they euthanize the dog they rescued? Making their life-or-death choice even more difficult is Lance's hilarious quirkiness; when not threatening, he's incredibly entertaining-though a State Trooper, the local drug dealer, and a Megan's Law parolee, among many others, would beg to differ. This rollicking, thought-provoking, and-at times-heart-wrenching true-life account of the unorthodox rescue of an unorthodox dog is guaranteed to captivate: -Dog lovers -Recovering addicts (there are numerous passages that the 12-step community will relate to) -Survivors of child abuse (the author reveals his own poignant connection with Lance) -Any reader who can laugh, cry, or enjoy having her/his faith in humanity restored.

Walter Stoffel is a freelance writer and publisher who specializes in human interest memoir and fiction. His newest book, Arthur: The Beginning, is a work of historical fiction that describes a young boy's struggle to survive his childhood. His debut dog rescue memoir Lance: A Spirit Unbroken has achieved five-star book review status on three continents. The author has a rich work history that includes teaching GED and substance abuse counseling at correctional facilities. He also has experience as a certified mental health screener. For many years, he lived and worked in various South American countries. Most unique occupation: chipping excess concrete off the undersides of bridges in Virginia. All his coworkers were wearing prison stripes. Mr. Stoffel is a member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group, Pennwriters and Barbara's Writing Group, a critiquing association. When not writing, he loves to read, travel, work out, and watch bad movies. The author has a B.A. in psychology and is a credentialed alcoholism and drug counselor. He lives in Canadensis, PA with his wife Clara and their rescued dog Buddy. Personal accomplishment: after having hip replacement surgery, Walter entered a marathon and finished it-dead last.
