Jake in Danger by Annette Butterworth

Jake is well and truly miffed when new dog on the block, Boris, starts to get all the attention and he becomes increasingly bitter with jealousy. But when dead birds are discovered in the park and Jake is accused of the killings, and there is a real danger he may be taken away from his adoring owners, it is Boris who comes to the rescue...

If you enjoyed this then follow Jake on some more adventures in Jake in Action and Jake a Friend Indeed
