Dog lovers will enjoy reading about the four dogs that live on Bedlam Farm. Each dog has a special job — herding sheep, visiting the sick, or guarding the farm. Readers are left to read about each dog, and through clues figure out what the fourth dog, Lenore, is responsible for.
This is a great introduction to working dogs, and highlights how rescued dogs can recover and become part of a pack. The text is illustrated with beautiful photos.
