Inspired by his new puppy Rose, Jon Katz leaves the suburbs for a remote farm to give the Border Collie a true taste of herding life.

Rose's adventures start early, going head to head with a head-butting ram the day the sheep arrive. Despite boisterous hampering by our friend Devon from A Dog Year, Rose soon establishes a routine for the sheep, chickens and donkeys - and Jon himself - that makes the farm run like clockwork.

However, Jon's notion of a rural idyll is shattered when the snow comes. With two fingers damaged by frostbite and a sheep lost, the prospect of all-night lambing seems terrifying. But with Rose by his side, Jon finds there is little that together they can't do ...

A Home for Rose is a heart-warming depiction of the realities of country life, and of how one man turned his life upside down for the love of a dog.

This book was first published in the USA by Villard Books in 2004 with the title The Dogs of Bedlam Farm.
