The true story of how one little puppy learned to walk -- as seen on hit social media site The Dodo!

When Starfish was rescued from a California beach, this Belgian Malinois puppy couldn’t stand. That’s because Starfish had swimmer puppy syndrome, which meant her leg muscles hadn’t developed properly. If Starfish was going to walk, she would need help from a lot of new friends.

Luckily, a team of doctors, therapists, and Starfish’s family all worked together to encourage and support her. This true story teaches us what it means to never give up hope. With some love, hard work, and a "can-do" attitude, Starfish reached her goals and inspired everyone around her.

This story is perfect for middle-grade readers and comes with an eight-page full-color photo insert!
