Book ~ "Princess" (2008) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ It seems like it's going to be just another normal Peterson family trip for haircuts - that is until Charles meets Princess, a spoiled but irresistible Yorkie pup. She belongs to one of the stylists but Princess's owner is moving and can't take the puppy with her. Charles volunteers to care for Princess until they find her a new home. 

But it doesn't take long for the Petersons to get tired of Princess's privileged ways. How will Charles ever find the right family for this high maintenance pup?

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.

While Charles and his family are getting haircuts, one of the stylists rushes in excitedly tells everyone she is heading to California to study under a master stylist. She has a yorkie named Princess who she can't take with her. Charles offers to foster Princess and find her a new home ... something the Peterson family regret when they discover how spoiled Princess is. She comes with a long list of instructions and a suitcase of clothes, bowls, placemats and more!

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