The Leanin' Dog
Dessa Dean lives with her dad near Willow Creek. Dessa Dean's dad takes care of his family by hunting and trapping but ever since her mother died in a snowstorm Dessa has not been able to step off the porch of their home. When a hurt dog shows up at their small house Dessa Dean adopts her despite her father's concerns. Although the dog takes to Dessa Dean immediately she has her own issues and panics if Dessa tries to shut the door to the house. The dog is also not fond of Dessa's father but they begin to make peace when the dog catches a rabbit for their Christmas dinner. When a bear enters the house while her dad is out during the day Dessa Dean and the dog must work together to help each other and survive.
