Genre: Puppy Dog Fiction:)
This book has a Jack Russell on its cover- I had to get it. We had a Jack Russell Foxy cross, he was the REX! He had dreams, you could tell, he thought he was a rottweiler who could destroy 15 Rabbits with one bite. He dreamed he could howl "Bohemian Rhapsody" in New Zealand's Got Talent and win. He dreamed that he would be the first ever dog to paddle a kayak over the Huka Falls- oh yes Mr Rex had dreams.
In this book the doggie dreams are more about survival, it is dog orphanage, who will get picked for a nice home and who will never get chosen because they are ugly, or don't like pats!
At the Happy Paws Rescue
Centre, every pet dreams of one thing: going home. But Ralph, Mitch,
Bessie and Fred are the no-hopers: dogs so difficult or troublesome they
aren't expected to ever go home. Ralph's face is scarred. Bessie can't
stand to be touched. Mitch can't stop chasing cats and Fred ...has just
given up. Who'd want to adopt any of them instead of a cute little
puppy? But when Happy Paws reviews its policy of never putting an
unwanted pet down, time starts running out for the dogs. Can they prove
that they're worth a second chance? Will there be hope for the no-hopers
