A Stray Dog For Christmas

By Jack Jokinen

A true story about a stray dog who finds a family just in time for Christmas.

It's two weeks before Christmas, and a stray dog searches for shelter in the snow. Thankfully, the door of one house is slightly ajar, welcoming her inside. But what will happen after she walks in? Will the humans send her back out into the cold? Or will they be her friend and let her stay? Will she find what she's truly looking for . . . a forever home?

Based on the true story of podcaster Jack Jokinen and his family's heartwarming experience, A Stray Dog for Christmas captures the essence of the holiday season. This modern classic is a perfect read for both kids and adults, reminding us of the enduring joy of family and the possibility of Christmas miracles.

This touching narrative also sheds light on the significance of dog adoption, inspiring compassion and responsible pet ownership. Experience the wonder of the season through the eyes of a stray dog, and discover the timeless message that resonates at Christmas and all year long!
