Hero Dogs is a book of canine courage published in association with Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Crufts ‘Friends for Life’. Amongst the stories are that of Gander, the Newfoundland mascot of the Royal Rifles of Canada, who received a posthumous award for saving the lives of Canadian infantrymen during the Battle of Lye Mun, Hong Kong in 1941. Mike Dewar and Echo, the search and rescue dog who has worked in Haiti; and the team hearing dog specially trained to work with a congenitally deaf child and her family. There are stories of police dogs, search and rescue, border agency dogs and of course stories of hearing dogs who have changed the lives of deaf children, adults and their families. This is a tribute to so many of Man’s best and bravest friends.
'Dogs are our best friends and companions. They work hard to please us and give us boundless, unconditional love. They are also, as you will discover on reading this book, capable of quiet heroism. I hope that these stories of heroic dogs will uplift you and move you, as they have me, and that you will find their deeds inspiring'. Ben Fogle from the foreword
