"Trouper" from Meg Kearney and E.B. Lewis
Trouper the dog ran with a mob of mutts who wished for a home. One day, the dogs are put in a shelter and Trouper watches sadly as each of his dog friends is adopted. He's the only one left until finally a boy comes around and finds that this three-legged mutt is the perfect pet for him! This moving story is illustrated by Caldecott Honor Book artist E.B. Lewis.
