Natalie is the author of the upcoming children’s book Bandito the Puppito Dreams of a Home, illustrated by Marcela Ramirez and translated by Reneé Jaime. Bandito the Puppito tells the true story of Natalie’s own rescue dog, Bandit, and those of so many other animals who wait in shelters for their forever homes.
Because of rescue organizations, volunteers and foster networks, many are given a second chance, but not enough. Natalie’s hope is the book teaches children the power of kindness and the importance of rescue. The book is in English and Spanish, and all proceeds will be donated to Born Again Pit Bull Rescue to help continue their rescue and advocacy efforts.
The book is set to be released in Spring 2020. Those wishing to purchase a paperback or hardcover copy can fill out the pre-order form at banditothepuppito.com/buy-the-book. Once released, copies will be sold from Natalie directly and online (Amazon included), and can be requested at libraries and book stores near you.
