This sweet and hilarious doggy adoption tale features a pooch wearing—wait for it—bright yellow shoes.
 
When Mini finds a small moppet of a dog, with fluffy ears, no collar, and wearing yellow booties, she understandably wants to take it home. Despite Mom's insistence that the dog probably already has a family, Mini gets attached and is awfully proud of her new pal, who can sing, sit, and give both paws. But when the pup runs off one day at the park, Mini comes to understand how someone else out there might be missing the little guy too.
 
This story, by a debut author/illustrator, perfectly captures the undeniable bond between dog and owner.

• Find a shelter. Staffers can help choose the right dog for your family. • Be prepared to visit a shelter more than once to get to know a potential adoptee. Make sure all family members have a chance to meet the dog, and if you already have a pet at home, consider bringing him or her to the shelter, too. • On the big day, bring a government-issued photo ID and proof of address; the name of a personal reference, reachable by phone; and the adoption fee, which can range from $75 to $200. And be

sure to follow the shelter’s advice about follow-up veterinary care, licenses, and IDs.
