More About This Title We Adopted


‘Adoption’ is the new badge of honour; Adoption is the new ‘Black’.

The book is an anthology of modern, real life fairy tales of doggie salvation. It features some of the most incredible comeback stories, tales of resilience, forgiveness, trust, love, human cruelty, greed and miracle rebounds, dogs on the brink of death and the owners who never gave up on them.

Most of the dogs in this book have been through their own personal Hell. Every single one at the hands of a species called Humans. And they have all bounced back and remain as trusting and as compassionate and loving as ever.

The stories are accompanied by stunning editorial fashion spreads. No one would ever guess that these beautiful canine models were once abused, neglected, crippled or abandoned.

With art by Sam Lo and essays by Louis Ng, Member of Parliament and founder of ACRES, Dr Jaipal Singh, Executive Director of SPCA, Cheryl Chou, Miss Universe Singapore 2016 and Belinda Lee, actress and host.

“There is something about a dog that you rescue ...
an appreciation you’ll never see from any other dog …
When you see those dogs come to life and change
and all of a sudden blossom,
it’s the best feeling so go rescue a dog if you can.”
Ellen DeGeneres
