Do you like dogs? If you do you should read this book! This is an inspirational book. Marty, the main character finds this dog,and calls him Shiloh. When he goes home his parents tell him he can't have the dog. Marty has to return the dog to his mean owner Judd. Marty can't stop thinking of that dog. The next day Shiloh is back. Marty makes a pen for Shiloh to live. Marty is going to keep Shiloh. One day Judd comes to see if Marty has his dog. Read the book to find out what will happen to Marty and Shiloh.

I liked this book because it reminded me of my parents not letting me have a rabbit I found. This makes me remember about a dog I had and I loved very much. The character that I mostly liked was Shiloh and Marty. I liked Shiloh because I like different types of dogs. The author made me feel like I was in the story.

I recommend this book to people who don't like when people mistreat dogs.
