Book ~ "Biggie" (2021) Ellen Miles

From Goodreads ~ After getting home from school, Lizzie is surprised to hear that her parents are fostering another yorkie puppy. After all, their last yorkie foster, Princess, was a little spoiled. But Biggie is Princess's total opposite. He's energetic and tenacious! 

Can Lizzie find this teeny puppy with a big heart a perfect home?

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

Lizzie and her family agree to foster a yorkie puppy named Biggie. He belongs to some friends who are just starting their adult lives and don't have enough time to devote to him. They are sad to give him up but they know it's the best thing for him. The Petersons had fostered a yorkie in the past who was a spoiled princess but happily Biggie has a different personality. 

Lizzie and her friends have a dog walking company and she takes Biggie with her as she's walking her dogs. Biggie takes a liking to a Jack Russell dog named Domino and helps to find him when he gets lost in the woods.

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 Biggie's point of view. It is the 60th in the Puppy Place series, which currently has 66 books in the series, and works as a stand alone.
