Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "On March 4, 2017, at a Petco in Milford, Connecticut, Melissa Shapiro met the tiny, deaf, blind, pink puppy whom the world would come to know as Piglet. Rescued from a hoarding predicament, Piglet was the sickly runt of his litter and had been rejected at birth, causing emotional trauma. But Shapiro has been in training for years to help this dog in need, from her focus on becoming a veterinarian to how she and her husband worked as a team to raise their children to the six rescued dogs and four rescued birds already in their home. Sharing stories on social media about Piglet learning new skills and coping with challenges spreads the big impact of this small dog far beyond the Shapiro family. Educators and their students, animal advocacy groups, legions of social media friends, and now readers of this book will be inspired by Piglet. Full of serious factual details as well as creating an emotional bond with touches of sorrow and joy, this will make Piglet even more of a star."
