Ellie's Story


Ellie's Story: A Novel for Children

ADAPTED FROM A DOG’S PURPOSE.


A Dog’s Purpose has been enjoyed by children of all ages, and has been adapted for classroom use (see below).


To make the exciting story of Ellie, the search and rescue dog in A Dog’s Purpose, more accessible to elementary school readers, author Cameron now offers Ellie’s Story, the story of a very good dog.


Ellie is a little puppy when she is adopted by Jacob, a K-9 police officer who trains her in search and rescue. She learns words like “work,” which means to “find” lost or injured people and “show” Jakob where these people are. But Jakob has a troubled past and is emotionally detached from his new dog, something Ellie can sense. Together they find and save people, and Ellie takes comfort from the work she is doing.


When Jakob is hurt in the line of duty, Ellie goes to live and work with Maya, a woman who isn’t sure she can fulfill the physical component of her new job of handling Ellie. Maya’s struggles contrast with a new element in Ellie’s life—Maya is full of love for Ellie, and brings the dog into her family. A family which, to Ellie’s disgust, contains three cats.


This is an exciting story for children with a character they will love. In the end, Maya and Ellie meet up with Jakob, who has married and now has an open and caring heart, and Ellie is happy and at peace with her life.
