The phenomenal New York Times Number One bestseller about the unbreakable bond between a dog and their human. Now a major film starring Dennis Quaid.

This is the remarkable story of one endearing dog's search for his purpose over the course of several lives. More than just another charming dog story, A Dog's Purpose touches on the universal quest for an answer to life's most basic question: Why are we here?

As a stray mutt reincarnated into a rambunctious golden-haired puppy curious about his new life, Bailey discovers the joys of being a good dog with eight-year-old Ethan.

Yet, his adventure doesn’t end there. Reborn into another puppyhood, will Bailey finally uncover his purpose? With a wagging tail full of intriguing questions, witty comments, and a unique critique of human-canine bonds, this is a rollercoaster ride of humour and emotion.

Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, W. Bruce Cameron's A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.
