The Little Blue Dog is a children's book inspired by the real life story of a small Chihuahua named Louie who ends up in a shelter in California. With a mission to create a lovable character to represent the countess dogs who find themselves homeless, Louie's journey exemplifies the story of survival, hope and second chances. Author Karen Roberts wrote The Little Blue Dog as a way to tell Louie's story and to raise both awareness and funding for animal welfare organizations.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the book and associated The Little Blue Dog products will be donated to help organizations who are making a difference in the lives of animals, with partners carefully selected to provide a broad scope of rescue strategies from different areas of the country. The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation is delighted to have been chosen as one of beneficiaries of The Little Blue Dog's efforts, particularly as our co-founder Katherine Heigl, enjoyed reading the heartwarming story.
"Karen Roberts has masterfully captured the plight of one spunky little dog's sojourn to a better place, while taking the reader through a shelter pet's emotional turmoil. This tail-wagging story, which advocates adoption and responsible pet ownership, is spun in a manner to warm the hearts of many - including mine. I highly recommend this book as a must-read for children and their parents." Katherine Heigl - May 2012
