The Golden Principles 1st Edition by Dr. Andy Neillie

The Golden Principles

Life and leadership lessons from a rescued dog

We adopted Redford from a horrible situation when he, along with 65 other dogs, was rescued from an Arkansas puppy mill in the fall of 2004. When he came to our home, he had much to learn about relationships and trust.

And so did we.

The Golden Principles captures many of the life lessons we’ve learned from loving this wonderful, wounded dog.
