Last Dog On The Hill: The Extraordinary Life of Lou

When Steve Duno rescued an ailing, tick- and flea-infested Rottweiler/Shepherd mix, little did he know just how much that malnourished feral pup would change his life and those of countless others. The moving story that unfolds allows us to witness the powerful emotional bond that develops between an exceptionally intelligent dog and the man with whom he shared his life. You’ll marvel at the antics and escapades of heroic Lou, the dog who not only acts as a teacher’s aide in Duno’s tutoring job, but wins the respect of neighbourhood gang members, assists in the capture of armed robbers, and even catches a rapist. Eventually, he sparks Duno’s transition to a career in dog training and assists with the rehabilitation of aggressive dogs, thereby saving them from euthanasia. It’s difficult not to be charmed by this unique dog’s ability to understand (his vocabulary tops 200 words), or his uncanny knack to quickly learn and remember tricks. Memorable from beginning to end, this tribute to a truly great dog will make you laugh, cry, and recall your own memories
of special dogs.
