Gabrielle Bell gets the massive task of helping her reclusive mother find a dog. The canine must be good with cats, scare bears, and keep deer from eating the garden. When they meet Jojo, who is NOT qualified, Mom immediately decides to take her home. Gabrielle channels her inner dog-whisperer to make Jojo feel at home. Everyone has a different approach to the shy and fragile Jojo—but all share an immediate love for the troubled dog. By Gabrielle Bell (Voyeurs, Everything is Flammable).
