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 loved this small book series! It was about how there was something driving all the humans away and not taking their pets. Max, the main character, has to find out what is happening and where his humans went. With his friends that he met along his way, he encounters wolves, bad dogs, and even a house full of cats! This was a great book series overall and I really enjoyed it.

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!

This is a really great book Its about a 2 Dogs named Max and Rocky and all the people in the world is gone recommend for you to read it!

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.
