Marty will do anything to save his new friend Shiloh.

When Marty Preston comes across a young beagle in the hills behind his home, it's love at first sight -- and also big trouble. It turns out the dog, which Marty names Shiloh, belongs to Judd Travers, who drinks too much and has a gun -- and abuses his dogs. So when Shiloh runs away from Judd to Marty, Marty just has to hide him and protect him from Judd. But Marty's secret becomes too big for him to keep to himself, and it exposes his entire family to Judd's anger. How far will Marty have to go to make Shiloh his?

        This is one of my BOB books. I think that is just not right the way people treat some dogs. It is unacceptable.

              I read this in forth grade with a small group. I remember it being kind of sad, but pretty good. I don't know if I recommend this. If you love dogs and would get really super sad if one got mistreated, then this isn't a good book for you to read.

                So far I really like it. The first chapter is about a kid that finds a dog while he's out on a walk. The dog follows him home but it doesn't seem like his parents are going to let him keep it. I will keep reading because I like the dog and I want to find out what happens to him.
