Be strong. Be fierce. Life is more than a concrete floor.

He learns how to run, to dig, to howl and, biggest of all, to love. But then tragedy strikes ...

How does a dog find his way home when he never had one to begin with?

A heartfelt, wondefully written and totally compelling story of love and belonging

Told through the eyes of a young pup, Scruffity, who will tug at your heartstrings

Themes of friendship, loss and hope are woven through a gripping narrative 

Stunning illustrations by Sean Buckingham
