One day, Bobby and Sandy catch a pickpocket and as a reward Sandy is given a new home, but the loyal pup can't go with him.

Then Bobby remembers John Gray, the kindly constable... This timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and finding a home is perfect for young dog lovers and visitors to Scotland.

Historically detailed illustrations from Elena Bia bring life to a gripping story from author Michelle Sloan.
