Ellie was trained for search and rescue ever since she was a puppy. She is trained to save people who are lost, or find people under a collapsed building. Ellie’s Story is an informative and captivating book written by W. Bruce Cameron. This book is unique because it comes for the dog's point of view.
At a young age Ellie was adopted, she was forced away from her large litter to go and live with Jacob. Jacob was a police officer who trained Ellie to find people. Jacob would often take Ellie to the park where she would ‘Find’ people. Ellie got so good with ‘finding’, that she started going on actual rescues with Jacob. During one rescue, Jacob was hurt and Ellie had to return back to the police kennel.
One day, a police officer named Maya, who wanted to transfer departments and become a canine officer, came to the kennel wanting to talk to other officers and drop an application off. She felt bad for Ellie and wanted to become her partner. Maya started visiting Ellie at the kennel with hopes that one day they would become partners. One day, Maya came to visit,but surprised Ellie by taking her home! They were going to be partners.
Maya and Ellie saved many people, and Ellie made sure that Maya was never hurt the way Jacob was. On one rescue, Ellie was seriously hurt and was never going to be able to rescue people again. Until one day when she was given another opportunity.
Ellie's Story is a great book. While this book is entertaining it is also informative, I learned a lot about search and rescue dogs. This book is very inspiring and teaches people to never give up, and to push through the tough times. Ellie's Story is a book for elementary schoolers, it is a very simple but detailed book.
