Brave (American Dog)
When Dylan finds a lost puppy, he knows they are meant to be. He names the dog Brave. His mom says Dylan must train Brave before they can keep him. The agreement is that Brave can stay for two weeks, and then he will be taken to the shelter so his owner might reclaim him. If the owner does not come forward, Dylan might be able to adopt Brave.
Dylan asks his classmate Grace to help train Brave. She agrees, but only if Dylan helps her clear the ranch she lives on of debris from the recent hurricane. He agrees; after all, who cares about a little debris cleaning if it means he might get to keep Brave? The training starts, and Brave responds magnificently. Except for one thing: the kids just cannot help Brave get over his fear of sounds. As soon as he hears a loud noise, he goes into full panic mode. Dylan really wants to keep Brave, but can he train the dog in time?
I liked this book because it was entertaining and sweet. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves books about dogs and friendship.
