Going Home

Publisher: Orion Children's Books

Vicky works for Happy Paws Rescue Centre. She looks after the 'No-Hopers of the kennels.' Her dogs aren't lovable puppies any more - they all have problems.

Ralph has a lovely nature but he's just plain ugly. Mitch has been rehomed several times, but he just can't stop chasing cats. Bessie is beautiful but can't stand to be touched - the urge to bite overwhelms her. And poor old Fred was dumped when his family got a new puppy. Now he is dejected and depressed.

Can Vicky find homes for her odd bunch before the management decide the dogs need to be moved out or put down?

By turns funny and touching, this story is a must for all dog lovers.
