Book ~ "Mocha" (2012) 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 and his family are visiting relatives in the country when a stranger drops off a puppy. Mocha, a Bernese Mountain dog, was running around on the highway without a leash or tags. Can Charles find this adventurous pup a perfect place to live?

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.

The Petersons are visiting relatives in the country for a few weeks to celebrate Thanksgiving. There is a knock on the door and a stranger has a puppy he had rescued from a highway. He leaves quickly, leaving the puppy, who they name Mocha. Mocha is taken to the vet to see if she's chipped and it's discovered she's not. Mocha is very friendly and loves everyone so it shouldn't be hard to find her the perfect 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 Mocha's point of view. It is the twenty-ninth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
