This is a powerful story of how one woman decides to rescue an unwanted dog, and in the end how the dog leads her back to God.
Laurie Sacher has always been plagued with low self esteem, so she decides that if she adopts a dog the good deed will help her feel better about herself.
She agrees to adopt a dog sight unseen; she knows it’s an Aussie mix and that it is 9yrs old. She has such high hopes of what they will do together and how beautiful this dog is going to be. When she meets the dog she is so disappointed at what she sees she really doesn't want to take the dog, its skinny mangy and has bad breath, but she takes the dog anyway. She gives the dog a new name Mia. When she takes the dog to the vet she is told that Mia is a diabetic and that she will soon go blind. Slowly Mia learns through several mishaps that she must trust Laurie, and the bond that dog and owner create becomes unconditional.
Instead of Laurie rescuing Mia, Mia helps Laurie discover a relationship with God.
