Nashville, Tenn. — When Ruby, an adorable mixed-breed puppy with an underbite, gets mixed up in a daring attempt to help foster kids, she learns that love can overcome any obstacle…even a broken heart.
Abandoned in a shelter as a puppy, Ruby wonders if she’ll ever be adopted by a family. When a goofy looking, scruffy-faced man wearing ski goggles in the middle of the summer stops by the shelter, he adopts Ruby. Mr. James was not the family she was expecting, but could he still be the answer to her prayers?
Mr. James (known as Jimmy Wayne to his country music fans) is walking halfway across America to raise awareness for the thousands of foster children who desperately need help. Ruby realizes that she’s not so very different from these kids: she’s scared and alone. If she doesn’t have help, she can’t have hope either. Mr. James wants to change all that, for her and for every foster kid in the United States.
On their adventure, Mr. James teaches Ruby about integrity, honesty, loyalty, faith, forgiveness, and trust,
but mostly she learns how love can rescue someone and forever change lives. As they walk along historic routes and locations throughout the United States, Ruby quietly helps Mr. James overcome the issues he’s been struggling with too. By the time they get to Phoenix (from Nashville) both of their lives are changed for the better.
Just as Ruby accepts Mr. James as her new family, an unexpected phone call challenges her to redefine family—and love—all over again. Ruby is reunited with her birth mother, learning that hard times can hit good people, and the foster system only works when we all work with it.
Readers will walk away from Ruby the Foster Dog with a full heart, fun facts about the United States, a strong desire to help foster dogs and foster kids find homes and forever families. They will understand how to be a star that shines for others.
Ruby’s story parallels the plight of the more than 400,000 children in foster care, the 30,000 who age-out annually at 18-years-young, and the 100,000+ children waiting to be adopted.
