When all the humans in his world disappear, Max, a yellow Labrador Retriever, begins the search for his family. He knows that if he can just find Madame Curie, a wise, old black Lab, she'll be able to help. Madame had a premonition of astonishing events to come -- she might know where Max's family is.

But Max can't make the journey alone. Joined by friends Rocky and Gizmo, Max sets off to find Madame. Along the way, the trio must face a pack of angry wolves, forage for food in a land where kibble is akin to gold, befriend a house full of cats, and outsmart a gang of subway rats. Ultimately, they'll have to escape from the biggest threat of all: the Corporation, a "perfect" society for dogs and by dogs, where nothing is quite as it seems.

The Last Dogs: The Vanishing is a thrilling adventure and a tale of three unlikely friends on an epic quest to find their people -- and bring them home.

    I liked this book. It's when Max, Rocky, and Gizmo and their adventures together when they are trying to find their "Pack Leader," or their owners when their owners left for an unknown occasion...

      I just finished this book at home! This book was great and sort of touching. Max and Rocky are on a journey, trying to find the humans (they mysteriously disappeared a few weeks ago), they have a pack of wolves chasing them, and they’re on the run! After a brief meeting at the Enclave (a group of dogs led by the dog named Dandyclaw), a new member named Gizmo joins them and they’re off! They explore many different places, make friends, discover new facts, and make new enemies as well. I would recommend this to 8+. Thanks for reading @constance25’s book reviews!

          A bit like warriors yet different. If you have read all of Warriors and need a new series then come find this. When mysteriously all humans disappear it's up to one dog and his two new friends to find them. But can they?

            I am grade 5, and The last dogs is about three dogs who are trying to find their owners and it takes friendship, teamwork and skills (physical) to survive and find their Owners. I just LOVE this book. I will rate5 stars because that's the max, but I would actually rate it INFINITY. I highly recommend this book for kids age 8+ and it is very heartwarming, dramatic, amazing, and full of adventures.

              This is an amazing book !This entire series is so amazing and heart warming. Max, Gizmo and Rocky are all on the journey to find their humans. It takes courage and friendship to get through all that comes their way. Read the book/s to find out all that happens.
