Book ~ "Molly" (2013) 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. 

When Charles offers to foster Molly he thinks that she is a very sweet puppy. But then Charles finds out that she is a Rottweiler. He's never been scared of a foster dog before. Can he overcome his fear and find this gentle pup a 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.

When Charles and his mom pick up his younger brother at daycare, he meets a cute Rottweiler puppy named Molly. Miss Penny, the owner of the daycare, recently inherited Molly from her late aunt but doesn't think she can take care of her so the Petersons offer to foster her. At first, Charles is enamoured by the sweet Molly but for the first time ever becomes frightened of a puppy when he hears how savage Rottweilers can be.

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