The Puppy Place: Shadow
Ok, so I'm not reading these books in order. It’s not the type of series you HAVE to read in order, so I'm not. :) Shadow is about a black lab and is very smart. He ends up at a place where they train dogs to be guide dogs. (Guide dogs are dogs for blind and disabled people)
Series: The Puppy Place
Author: Ellen Miles
Age Level: 8+
Main Characters: Shadow, Lizzie and Charles Peterson
Quotes (from book) About Main Characters:
Shadow: “Shadow's a pretty special pup”, “He's a purebred Labrador retriever, with papers and everything”
Lizzie and Charles: Lizzie and Charles were both crazy about dogs.” (Lizzie) “She liked facts. Especially facts about dogs.” (Charles) “Lizzie sighed. Sometimes Charles just didn't listen”
On the Back:
Charles and Lizzie Peterson love puppies. Their family fosters these young dogs, giving them love and proper care, until they can find the perfect forever home.
When the Petersons meet Shadow, they know he is special. He's a cute black lab, and he is extremely smart. Everyone agrees that Shadow will be the perfect puppy for someone. But where will this talented pup do the most good?
I would recommend this book for ages 8 and up because there are some things younger kids might not understand. Other than that anyone could enjoy it.
