Book ~ "Bentley" (2019) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ The Petersons are off to a weekend in the woods. Charles is excited to venture into the outdoors with his puppy, Buddy. When the family arrives at Misty Valley, Charles discovers that a smart Weimaraner named Bentley is lonely and in need of a home. 

But Charles is only there for the weekend. Can he find Bentley a home in just three days?

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 family are on a camping trip at Misty Valley. When they check in, they see a Weimaraner puppy named Bentley in a cage in the office ... he was found a couple weeks early roaming around and no one had claimed him. The owner of Misty Valley can't keep him and doesn't know anyone else who will take him. Charles gets attached to Bentley and is determined to find him a good 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 Bentley's point of view. It is the 53rd in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
