A sweet story about a dog who wants to find his doggie friends homes like he has. Pierre has a nice home with Miss Murphy, but he remembers his friends from when he was homeless. He decides to help them and, one afternoon when Miss Murphy is napping, he sneaks out to find his friends.
A tad wordy for the younger set, it has a gentle ending that encourages helping others. Dog lovers will love this book.
