Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

When Marty Preston comes walking home one day, he sees a scared dog who flinches when he comes near. When the dog starts to follow him home,Marty gets attached. He has to keep the dog secret from his family because they can not afford to keep a dog, so Marty eats half his meals and gives the rest to the dog who he hides in his backyard. One day, Marty finds out that this dog already has an owner named Judd Travers, who drinks too much and has a gun. Turns out the dog ran away from his former owner. Marty is determined to keep the dog (whom he has now named Shiloh) from his abusive owner, which is the reason Shiloh flinches when Marty tried to pet him at first. But, that can’t happen because he does not own the dog. How will Marty keep his beloved Shiloh safe?

This was a good book that that pulls at the reader’s heart strings, and if you are sentimental about dog books, this one is ok to read because the dog does not die at the end, which I am happy to say. I would give this book a 10 out of 10!
