“With touching and thought-provoking honesty, Where the Lost Dogs Go describes a corner of the canine world—missing dogs—that many of us will never visit. But if our dogs do unfortunately wander off, we can only hope that individuals like search-and-detection expert Susannah Charleson, and her dogs Puzzle and Ace, are there to help bring home our beloved, lost, four-legged friends.”
—Ted Kerasote, author of Merle’s Door and Pukka’s Promise
"Susannah Charleson brings home another outstanding book of love and loss, searching and finding. With considerable canine insight, she tracks down dogs-on-the-loose in pursuit of happy reunions. Full of love and compassion, Where the Lost Dogs Go helps you find that nice warm place in your heart."

“Where the Lost Dogs Go is a compelling mystery, an amazing how-to manual—and a moving memoir. Best-selling author Susannah Charleson has crafted a wonderful book that defies easy categories. It’s about lost dogs and their often equally lost humans. It’s about a challenging kind of search-and-rescue work that kept me riveted and taught me new things about animal behavior. But at its heart, Where the Lost Dogs Go is about a wounded, complex, loving family that finds meaning and solace in the missing cats and canines who find warm, safe harbor with them.”
– Cat Warren, best-selling author of What the Dog Knows.
