Down through history, dogs have been great friends to humans. Dog owners know how remarkably dogs can adapt. They are intelligent, compassionate, loyal, and protective. Shadows Point to Rainbows: An Unwanted Dog Becomes an Injured Boy’s Best Friend is a tribute to one German shepherd, who was providentially assigned to a young man living in north-central Oregon. With a tap at the door, “Champion” came into young Jed Franklin's life. His mother faithfully recounts how this loving and faithful friend stood by his master, helping him recover from a life-threatening, life-changing accident when he was eight years old so he could grow into manhood.
This touching and faith-building story about a gift of God wrapped in fur was written to share lessons and encouragements from the providential events of the life of a boy growing up with his dog. Rather than withdrawing into himself, the young man was able to see the rainbows of life that follow the clouds.
