The triupmhant tale of a put bull pup.

But Mack's dad has a mean temper, and before long he's mad. Ignoring Mack's cries, he dumps Cash in the middle of nowhere. Hungry and lost, the young pup must face the world alone.

Will she ever find her boy again?

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Dog Lost:

"Dog Lost is much more than a breathless page-turner. It's a brutally honest novel depicting the world of dogfighting in a wicked light but tempering any scenes of cruelty with an entire community of positive characters. And Lee brings together her winning, motley cast, human and animal, for a wonderfully heart-rousing ending. I loved it." — Ann M. Martin, author of A Dog's Life

"A tough book, a tender book, and one I shan't forget." — Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse and Private Peaceful

"Without moralizing, [Lee] argues that dogs, regardless of breed, can be trained to be violent—or not... . Based on a true story, this moving, fast-paced tale will appeal to fans of Shiloh." — Kirkus Reviews
