Review by Jack Peterson.
This book is about a dog named Daisy that is chosen to be trained to be a service dog for a veteran with severe PTSD. He has son named Micah, a wife, and a trainer named Andrew. Daisy was an abused dog and was put into many fights. She had gotten her ear cut off. She is named Daisy because of a little area around her eye that looks like a daisy. She finishes training, while helping the "Colonel" a lot at home. But, will she pass or fail the test? You've got to read to find out.

I liked this book as I can relate to the Colonel. I recommend this book for anybody that likes animal books, but also some realism. Finally, I think this book is readable for grades 4th through 8th.
