Hokkien Button is no ordinary dog. She was trained as a therapy pet who understands Hokkien, winning the hearts of many. When Fiona first meets Button, something clicks. Here is a loveable dog who is being mistreated and unloved. So Fiona decides to steal her, and they soon transform each other’s lives. In fact, Fiona used to have a terrible fear of dogs—so how does she become the founder of Hope Dog Rescue, saving strays and finding them forever homes? For her part, Button learns affection and a calm confidence. She begins to understand Hokkien and is trained to become a therapy pet, visiting Hokkien hospice patients and bringing joy to many. Though Button is no longer with us, this is her inspiring story.
