Special Order - Subject to Availability


When Cally Fisher says she sees her dead mother, no one believes her. The only other living soul who sees Cally's mom is a mysterious wolfhound who always seems to be there when her mom appears. And when Cally stops talking—what's the point if no one is listening?—how will she convince anyone that her mom is still with them or persuade her dad that the huge silver-gray dog is their last link with her?

A Dog Called Homeless is the gentle and touching story of how one girl's friendship with a homeless dog can mend a family's heart.
