Summary: "In the city lived a dog who belonged to no-one. He had to be brave, and fast, and smart ... just to survive. He ate whatever he could find. And looked for a new place to sleep every night. When a scruffy homeless dog inadvertently wanders into a halfway house, his lonely struggle to survive suddenly changes. He finds a family, is fed and scrubbed, and given a name all his own. Based on the true story of the author's own beloved dog Muttley, this is a warm tale of love and belonging. This edition celebrates the 15th anniversary edition of Mutt Dog."--Publisher.
