Book ~ "Kodiak" (2020) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ Lizzie Peterson and her friends are heading to a cabin in the woods for a girls' weekend. On the way, they spot and rescue Kodiak, an energetic Malamute stray with a mind of his own. 

Can Lizzie and her friends tame the wild pup and find him a home?

Lizzie is in elementary school. Her family, the Petersons, have a puppy named Buddy plus they foster dogs and help them find homes.

Lizzie is spending the weekend with her best friend, Maria, and Maria's older cousin, Kamila, at Maria's family's cabin. As they arrive, they see a Malamute puppy through running the woods. They are able to catch him and call him Kodiak. Over the weekend, they all have fun with him. When no one at the nearby country store has heard of a missing dog, Lizzie takes him home so her family can foster him and find him a good furever 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 Kodiak's point of view. It is the fifty-sixth in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
