A Dog Named Christmasby Greg Kincaid
Synopses & Reviews
In this heartwarming novel, author Greg Kincaid tells the tender story of how one very special dog changed the lives of his adoptive family—and an entire town—forever.
“Todd, they always want you to adopt a dog. Thats what they do. Besides, we dont need another animal around here, and most definitely not a dog.”
When Todd McCray, a developmentally challenged young man still living on his parents Kansas farm, hears that a local animal shelter is seeking temporary homes for its dogs during the days leading to Christmas, he knows exactly what he wants for the holidays. His father objects, but Todds persistence quickly wins out. Soon the McCrays are the short-term foster family for a lovable pooch the young man names Christmas.
But what about all the other dogs who will be forced to spend the Yuletide season in cages? In the days that follow, Todd uses his special gifts of persuasion to encourage his hometown to participate in the “Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.” What follows from his small act of kindness will teach his family, and his community, about peace on earth and good will toward men—and animals.
Dog-lovers and all who seek an unforgettable tale that captures the spirit of Christmas will fall in love with this charming story, which is sure to captivate readers year-round. Heartwarming, sweet, and beautifully designed, "A Dog Named Christmas" is a true delight.

Animals are Todd’s first love, and his persistence quickly overwhelms his father’s objections to befriending a canine, a reluctance that proves to have a painful origin. The family takes in a very special animal, and the shelter’s Christmas adoption program soon grows larger than anyone had hoped. By the story’s end, Todd, with the help of a dog named Christmas, has taught an entire community the transformative power of goodwill and shared love—a lesson for all seasons.
