Shiloh, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

How could rescuing an abused dog ever be wrong? Shiloh presents the dilemma faced by eleven-year-old Marty who rescues and falls in love with an abused beagle pup named Shiloh. Marty's upright parents insist that he return the dog to its rightful owner. When the dog runs away again, however, new ethical issues confront Marty and force him to consider more deeply what constitutes right and wrong.
