A Dog’s Gift

The Inspirational Story of Veterans and Children Healed by Man’s Best Friend


A decade ago, former militarycounterintelligence officer Terry Henry joined his precocious young daughter,Kyria, on a trip to a nursing home in order to allow its residents to play withtheir family dog, a golden retriever named Riley. Terry was astounded by thetransformations that unfolded before his eyes. Soon after, Terry and Kyriastarted their service dog organization, Paws4people, with the goal of pairingdogs with human beings in need of healing, including traumatized and woundedwar veterans and children living with physical, emotional, and intellectualdisabilities.

In A Dog’s Gift, award-winningjournalist and author Bob Drury movingly captures the story of a year in thelife of Paws4people and the broken bodies and souls the organization mends. Thebook follows the journey of pups bred by the organization from their loving, ifrigorous, early training to an emotional event that Terry and Kyria havechristened “the bump,” where each individual service dog chooses itsnew owner through an almost mystical connection that ignites the healingprocess. Incorporating vivid storytelling, insights into canine wisdom,history, science, and moving tales of personal transformation, A Dog’sGift is a story of miracles bound to be embraced by not only the sixty million Americans who own dogs but by anyone with a full heart and a lovingsoul.
