Book ~ "Flash" (2007) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Charles and Lizzie Peterson love puppies. They have a puppy of their own named Buddy but they also foster dogs that need help finding new homes. 

Charles and Lizzie are visiting their cousins in the country when a young border collie is abandoned at their feet. Flash loves to run and chase so Charles and Lizzie know not just any home will work for this puppy. Can they find a forever home that's just right for Flash?

Charles and his older sister, Lizzie, are in elementary school. They recently got a dog named Buddy and still foster dogs and help them find a home.

Charles and Lizzie are visiting their cousins in the country when a car pulls up, drops off a puppy named Flash and then takes off. While they are trying to figure out who abandoned the puppy, they discover that Flash has lots of energy and an aptitude for agility training so start training him along with their own dog and their neighbour's dogs. Happily they find the right home for Flash in the end.

Though this book is a quick read and directed at elementary-aged children, I found it entertaining. There is a learning experience and a puppy tip at the end. It is written in third person perspective and first person from the dogs' points of view. It is the sixth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 64 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
