Book ~ "Maggie and Max" (2008) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Charles and Lizzie have helped lots of puppies find homes. But then they meet a Saint Bernard puppy with an unusual friend: a helpless kitten! And this pair needs to stick together. 

Will Charles and Lizzie find a way to keep these two together forever?

Lizzie and her younger brother, Charles, are in elementary school. They have a puppy named Buddy plus their family fosters dogs and helps them find homes.

Lizzie loves dogs and volunteers at an animal rescue. Around Christmastime, a box is left outside the rescue with a kitten named Max and a St. Bernard puppy named Maggie, who Lizzie and Charles foster. Lizzie and Charles are able to find a home for the kitten but not the puppy ... and Maggie and Max are so attached to each other that there's no way they can be split up.
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 Maggie and Max's points of view. It is the tenth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 64 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
