Bailey's Story

Bailey's Story!


Due to the enormous success of Ellie’s Story, Ellie is now joined by Bailey, another of the A Dog’s Purpose dogs with their very own children’s novel.

Bailey’s Story, a novel for children adapted from A Dog’s Purpose

Life is just wonderful for Bailey, a rambunctious Golden Retriever puppy who is adopted by his boy, Ethan. And life seems pretty good for Ethan, too: there’s a farm he visits in the summer (where a girl named Hannah lives down the road) and he has a family and is something of a football star at school.

When a house fire permanently injures Ethan, his spirits go into a downward spiral. It’s up to his faithful friend Bailey to pull him out of the doldrums—a task for which a dog is ideally suited!
