Book ~ "Angel" (2017) 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. 

While hiking with her new environmental club, Lizzie sees a dog stranded in the woods. After a dramatic rescue, the Petersons decide that they have to foster Angel, an adorable Havanese. With everything this playful pup has been through, will she find the right new owner?

Lizzie and her younger brother, Charles, are in elementary school. Their family, the Petersons, have a puppy named Buddy plus they foster dogs and help them find homes.

Lizzie is on a hike with an environmental club when she sees a puppy alone of a cliff. The group leader calls 911 and Lizzie calls her father, who is a fireman. Help arrives and the Havanese puppy, who Lizzie names Angel, is rescue. The Petersons foster Angel until they can find her a home. When the rescue is covered on the local news, there are lots of people wanting to adopt 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 Angel's point of view. It is the forty-sixth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
