Publisher Description

A heart-warming and deliciously funny story about the world’s worst behaved dog and how he trained his human how to love herself again.

Through the haze of vodka and self-loathing, Hazel Roundtree saw the poor creature lying in a ditch.

One brown eye. One blue.

Covered in mud and crying from pain, the puppy was desperately trying to free itself from a hopeless situation.

She almost kept walking by. She had her own problems and besides… no one had ever stopped to help her.

Who we’re ultimately meant to be is a journey without end, but there’s always a defined start…

Hazel had no idea the dog would be her beginning, her second chance, the miracle she never saw coming. She named him Atticus. He grew up to be a very bad—and completely awesome—dog. He took Hazel on a life-changing journey filled with mischievous adventure to find her happily ever after. In the end, Hazel grew up to be completely awesome, too.

Discovering Yourself

And I’m still crying!
I’ve read almost all of Sawyer’s stories... this one is different. It’s about loving yourself and others around you. Hazel didn’t really value herself until she comes across a sweet puppy who was trapped in yuck water with barbed wire fence around him. He changes her for the good.
I loved this story so much!
You should read it!

A must read for animal lovers.

I am a huge dog lover and follow Atticus on Facebook. When he got his own book I had to read it and I was not disappointed. All his antics will have you laughing. This read is not only about Atticus's antics but also a women who see her life change for the better once she finds him. If you want to get in the mind of a dog and feel all the emotions of his owners then this is a read for you. Emotional ride throughout each chapter.

Tremendous story! I couldn’t put the book down. One, I’m a huge dog person and two, we are all, dogs included, are placed on this earth for a purpose. Atticus gave Hazel a very special responsibility and Hazel helped Oley live the winter of his life happily. This should be a movie.
