Holly Webb Animal Stories #40: The Shelter Puppy

A dog wants a home. A girl wants a dog. Will fate bring Kaitlyn and Terry together? It’s the school community week, and Kaitlyn needs to do a project. What could it be? Maybe something to do with an animal charity? So Kaitlyn visits her local animal shelter and meets Teddy – a gorgeous whippet cross who becomes the star of her project. The idea is to find Teddy a home. But when a boy in Kaitlyn’s class watches her presentation and decides to adopt him, Kaitlyn realises how much she wants to keep Teddy herself. Is it already too late – or could her dream somehow come true?
