By J.R. Hardin
Koko, a small breed of dog called a Shih Tzu, lived with a little old lady he called Mama for the first three years of his life. One day, Mama became very sick and was taken to the hospital. She left a large sum of money to her great nephew, Stewart, to take care of Koko if something should happen to her. But when she passed away, Stewart abandoned Koko in a park.
This is the story of how Koko is suddenly forced to tackle life on his own—with no food, water, or shelter. He meets lots of dangers along the way, like mean dogs, vicious coyotes, scary dogcatchers, and even life-threatening injuries. Sometimes Koko made friends, but, as time went by, it began to look like nobody would ever give him a good home . . .
