Man’s best friend—man’s life saver—that’s a hero of a German Shepard and the star of “Cracker, the Best Dog in Vietnam,” by Cynthia Kadohata. This incredible story of the bond between a young soldier and his dog is told in human and canine voices bringing to light the struggles Cracker and his master endure in the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam.

Cracker comes to know this new life of strife when his young owner Willie has to give him up because his family has moved to an apartment in Chicago. Willie is heartbroken, and won’t think of sending Cracker to the pound, where he might be euthanized if he isn’t adopted.
