Book ~ "Daisy" (2015) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Charles is so happy to be fostering Daisy, the cutest Boston terrier. She loves being around people and even other dogs. 

But when Daisy is left alone, she chews things up. And Charles can't stay with her all the time. Will he be able to help this puppy find a new 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.

Their mom agrees to foster and find a home for Daisy, a Boston terrier ... a colleague had given Daisy to her daughter and having a puppy along with young children is too much. Charles is delighted to be in charge of Daisy. But he soon discovers how destructive she is ... when she's left alone, she destroys everything, including a cushion on the couch! They don't want keep her crated or give her to a rescue but they can't be with her all the time to keep an eye on her.

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 Daisy's point of view. It is the thirty-eighth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
