    • Abstract:
      Summary: In 2007, Jon Katz met artist Maria Wulf and felt an immediate connection with her. But a formidable obstacle stood in the way: Maria's dog, Frieda. A rottweiler-shepherd mix, Frieda had been abandoned by her previous owners and had lived in the wild for years. To Maria, Frieda was sweet and loyal. But she was also ferociously protective and barely tamed. It was clear: To win over Maria, Jon would have to gain Frieda's affection as well.

LJ Reviews 2013 November #1

In this heartwarming story of love and redemption intertwined with a primer of author Katz's (The New Work of Dogs: Tending to Life, Love, and Family) philosophy of dog training, dogs and humans alike get second chances at life, love, and growth. A mistreated, abandoned, and seemingly untrainable former junkyard dog, Frieda is transformed into a docile family member through the persistence of a man who's in love with the woman who adopted the dog. This is also the story of how two broken individuals—Maria Wulf, a struggling, insecure artist whose marriage was falling apart and whose career was stalled, and Katz, aging, divorced, and battling his own demons of panic, depression, and self-doubt—found true love, healing, happiness, and a new outlook on life. VERDICT This moving work is recommended for readers who want a true-life love story, for dog lovers seeking a book with a happy ending (the dog doesn't die!), for seniors who think that receiving a Medicare card means that love is out of the question, and for dog trainers who want to learn more about Katz's philosophy of dog training.—Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll.

When New York Times best-selling author Katz moved to Bedlam Farm in upstate New York, he met an artist named Maria. The only roadblock to a relationship? Maria's dog, Frieda, a rottweiler-shepherd mix that had run wild for several years and was Maria's ferocious guardian. With love, perseverance, and $500 worth of beef jerky, Katz managed to win over Frieda and get his beloved.
