A moving story of a three-legged stray dog who finds a loving boy to call his own–illustrated by Caldecott Honor Book artist E. B. Lewis. Trouper ran with a mob of mutts who tripped over trash cans and pawed the cold streets for bones. They howled and cried and wished for a home. Until one day, the dogs are captured from off the streets and put in cages in a shelter as they wait to be adopted. Trouper watches sadly as, one by one, each of his dog friends is chosen. He’s the only one left, until finally–one lucky day, when just the right boy comes around and finds that this three-legged mutt is the perfect pet for him!
