Book ~ "Pugsley" (2008) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Lizzie and Charles Peterson love puppies. Even though they finally have their very own puppy, Buddy, Lizzie still can't get enough time with dogs. She helps her Aunt Amanda at her doggie day care center as often as she can.

At the doggie day care, Lizzie meets a pesky but lovable pug named Pugsley. Pugsley is adorable but he didn't earn the nickname Mr. Pest for nothing and his owners decide he's too much of a handful to keep! 

Will Lizzie figure out how to get Pugsley to behave and find him a forever home?

Lizzie and her younger brother, Charles, are in elementary school. They have a puppy named Buddy plus foster dogs and help them find homes.

Lizzie loves dogs and volunteers at an animal rescue. She is very excited when her aunt and uncle move to their town and open a doggy daycare, where she helps out. There are lots of dogs, big and small, young and old. Pugsley is a rambunctious pug puppy (aka Mr. Pest) who attends the daycare. He is cute but a handful and his owners eventually decide to give him up to the rescue. Knowing how overcrowded the rescue is, Lizzie offers to foster Pugsley and find him a home, which she discovers is probably going to be an impossible task.
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 Pugsley’s point of view. It is the ninth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 64 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
