Book ~ "Louie" (2018) 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. 

At Loon Lake Park, Charles and his Cub Scout friends are told that a dog has been abandoned in the parking lot. Louie, a not-so-small Newfoundland puppy, is quickly taken in and cared for by the group. 

Can Charles and his friends find Louie a perfect, and roomy, forever home?

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

Charles and his Cub Scout friends are cleaning up a local park before the summer season starts. They find a Newfoundland puppy abandoned in a crate. Charles gets attached to him and names him Louie. Since the Petersons foster and find homes for dogs, they take him home and Charles and his friends start training Louie. They eventually find out why Louie was abandoned and find a good home for him.

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 Louie's point of view. It is the 51st in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
