Meaner Than a Junkyard Dog
By Charles Vincent
In this heart-warming tale of second chances, we follow a small puppy named Cody as he comes of age. After being separated from his home and family as a tiny puppy, he deals with tragedy, struggle, and growth as he chases his dream of becoming a police dog. He overcomes great odds and learns very valuable lessons on his inspiring journey back home.
