When the Going Gets Ruff by Daphne Maple


When the Going Gets Ruff by Daphne Maple

What's better than being best friends? Being best friends who volunteer together at the Roxbury Park Dog Shelter! With a focus on friendship, family, and cute canines, Roxbury Park Dog Club is perfect for tween readers who snap up books from series like Cupcake Diaries and Candy Apple, or for anyone who loves dogs. This second book focuses on Sasha, who has always wanted a pet. There's only one problem: her mom doesn't think she's responsible enough. Sasha knows she can be forgetful sometimes, but after weeks of volunteering at the Roxbury Park Dog Shelter with her friends Kim and Taylor, she's sure she can convince her mom she's ready to take care of a pet. But then the newest dog in the girls' after-school dog care program turns out to be too rambunctious to manage. How can Sasha prove she's responsible if she can't get one problem puppy under control?
