Book ~ "Miki" (2020) Ellen Miles

From GoodreadsWhen his mom picks him up from cooking class, Charles is surprised to find Miki, an adorable Bichon Frise puppy, in tow. 

As the Petersons foster Miki, Charles discovers that she was taught by her old owners to "dance." Soon enough, Charles, Lizzie, and their friends join together to put on a musical act that's sure to find the superstar pup a new home.

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

When Charles' mother picks him up after cooking class, he discovers she has a Miki, a Bichon Frise, puppy in the van. Apparently Miki's family were moving across the country and the apartment where they will be living doesn't allow dogs. Charles' mom agreed to foster Miki and find her a home.

Miki is a real cutie and can do lots of tricks and one she especially loves to do is dancing to music. Charles and Lizzy and Sammy, Charles' friend, decide to start busking with Miki at the farmers' market to raise funds for the local rescue but also to showcase Miki and find her the perfect 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 Miki's point of view. It is the 59th in the Puppy Place series.
