When a collection of loveable dogs finds no success with their original owners, they end up telling their sad tales at the Last Chance Dog Pound in Piddleton, Vermont while eagerly waiting for someone to give them a place to call home. *Author: Breathed, Berke *Subtitle: The Year-End Leftovers at the Piddleton Last Chance Dog Pound *Publication Date: 2003/10/17 *Number of Pages: 48 *Binding Type: School & Library *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 10.50 *Height: 9.75
From the Publisher:
Here's an invaluable guide to anyone seeking soulful, if not comely canine companionship. Flawed Dogs is the annual catalogue of the country's most shockingly unadoptable dogs, collected regularly at the Piddleton "Last Chance" Dog Pound in Piddleton Vermont. With the Piddleton Poetry club providing color commentary on each of the madly imperfect pooches, Berkeley Breathed is at the top of his twisted form with his scandalous depictions of these desperate dogs and their original, dissatisfied owners.
Annotation:
Berkeley Breathed's first middle grade novel involves a wildly valuable show dog named Sam, his beloved human, 14-year-old orphaned Heidy, and a crazy cast of characters bent on destruction. When Heidi goes to live with her estranged uncle Hamish and his nasty poodle, Cassius, toting Sam along, madness ensues in signature Breathed style. Accompanied by expressive B&W line drawings.

Praise

"Dramatically lit and featuring comically exaggerated characters...Berkeley's b&w artwork augments the story's drama and humor. A moving tale about the beauty of imperfections and the capacity for love." 07/20/2009

"Black-and-white and full-color illustrations, done in the award-winning author's familiar style, are sprinkled throughout, adding depth to an already engaging and well-paced tale." 11/01/2009
