One Saturday morning, there's a big surprise for the Shelter Pet Squad: a group of sato puppies has arrived! Satos are homeless dogs - of various breeds - from Puerto Rico. The kids will help them settle in until they are ready for adoption.

Suzannah plays with a pup named Paloma until the little dog falls asleep in her lap. It's puppy love!

That's why it's hard, the next week, when a line of people forms at the shelter to adopt the satos. Suzannah should be happy that Paloma will soon have a new home. The only problem is... she's not ready to let the dog go.

Is there any way for Paloma to get adopted without breaking Suzannah's heart?
