Sam the Lion may look like a flawed dog, but he is actually a priceless dachshund, bred to be a show dog. More important, he is Heidy’s best friend, right up until the day Sam is framed by the jealous poodle Cassius. He is cast out by Heidy’s uncle and roughed up by a world he was not bred for. Sporting a soup ladle for a leg, Sam befriends other abandoned dogs and journeys all the way to the Westminster Dog Show, where his plan for revenge on Cassius takes an unexpected turn. Flawed Dogs, Berkeley Breathed’s first illustrated novel, is a heartwarming and humorous ode to the unconditional and lasting love we share with our pets.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Berkeley Breathed is an American cartoonist, children's book author/illustrator, director, and screenwriter, best known for Bloom County.
