From the best-selling author who writes "the most utterly compelling translation of dog to human I have ever seen" (Jeffrey Masson), a groundbreaking guide to giving our dogs the happiest, healthiest lives

When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing his beloved Merle -- who died, as all our dogs do, too soon -- he knew that he would want to give his puppy the longest life possible. But how to do that?

Combining cutting-edge research with an adventurous narrative that echoes The Omnivore's Dilemma for the dog lover, Kerasote offers answers that will surprise you. He provides vital new information on whether a purebred can be as healthy as a mixed-breed, whether you should say no to yearly vaccines and spaying or neutering, and how to pick the best food from the crowded shelves. Traveling the dog world in Europe and throughout North America and interviewing breeders, veterinarians, and leaders of the animal-welfare movement, Kerasote helps us rethink the everyday choices we make for our companions. And as he did in Merle's Door, Kerasote interweaves fascinating science with the charming stories of raising Pukka among his many dog friends in their small Wyoming village. Funny, revelatory, full of the delights of falling in love with a dog, Pukka's Promise will help redefine the potential of our animal partners.
