Book ~ "Lucky" (2010) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ 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.

Charles is on a backyard camping trip when he discovers a lost puppy by the stream. Lucky is scared, dirty and hungry. It's up to Charles and his new friend David to bring this dog to safety. Will they be able to find Lucky's home? 

Charles and his older sister, Lizzie, are in elementary school. The Peterson family have a puppy named Buddy plus they foster dogs and help them find homes.

Charles was camping in the backyard of his new friend, David. A rain storm came up and David's mom told them to come and sleep inside instead of in Charles' tent. As they were going inside, Charles and David think they saw a puppy. The next day they go looking for it and find a tired and hungry puppy with a cut foot. They eventually catch him and take him to the vet. Then they are determined to find out who the puppy's owner is so they can return him home.

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 Lucky, the puppy's point of view. It is the sixteenth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 64 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
