Straydog - Kathe Koja

Rachel is closing herself off from the world. The only time when she is really happy is when she is at the local animal shelter. She sees this beautiful collie-mix, and this one's different from the others, feels different. Her heart tugs whenever she sees her and can't have her. The collie, now named Grrl, is wild. She can't stay in a cage much longer, and Rachel knows that. So when a new kid comes into her English class and reads her essay about Grrl, he is hooked too. They devise a plan to bring Grrl home, so she's not in a cage anymore.I recommend this for dog lovers; your heart will tug for Grrl. 106 pages
