About This Book
Charles and Lizzie Peterson love puppies. They want a puppy of their own more than just about anything. They know dogs are a lot of work. But their mom still doesn't think their family is ready for a puppy.
Then, Goldie arrives. She is a sweet golden retriever that needs a home. Goldie is very young. She doesn't know how to be a good puppy yet. Will Charles and Lizzie be able to help her?
With strong dog facts and helpful puppy tips included in every book, this series is not only fun to read but a great resource for prospective or current junior dog owners!
Note from author Ellen Miles:
Every puppy is different. The fun part about writing The Puppy Place is putting those distinct personalities front and center, really treating the dogs as primary characters. I love getting to know each puppy the Petersons foster, and I hope readers do, too.
