In their second book, Max & Tucker, Australian Shepherd brothers, were doing what they enjoy most:
playing in the woods and creeks of Northern Virginia when they came across a deer that had been
stranded after heavy rain. With the help of their Daddy, Max & Tucker rescued the deer and watched over her until she was strong enough to go on her way. This exciting adventure is about
being rescued by those we set out to rescue.

This true story, which occurred in the Spring of 2017, is captured in the wonderfully illustrated children’s book: Deer Oh Deer: A Max & Tucker Adventure. Proceeds are donated to the Wildlife Rescue League of Falls Church, VA.

Both books are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-a-Million, as well as in eBook format
on Kindle and Apple.

Keep an eye out for Max & Tucker and their new adventures and remember, “Act. Just imagine the
the story you will inspire.” and “Those we rescue, really rescue us.”

All adventures are free. You can easily check their availability and schedule at or we can schedule over email.
