Zeus: Water Rescue: Dogs with a Purpose (Hardcover)
The start of a brand new series about working dogs from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Dog's Purpose, W. Bruce Cameron!
Some dogs were born to lend a helping hand (or paw!).
Zeus, a chocolate lab puppy, is one of them. With his courage, smarts, and strength his purpose seems clear: he’ll become a water rescue dog!
When a young boy named Kimo is tasked with training Zeus, they quickly become best friends. But Zeus’s excitement makes training hard, and worse yet, becoming a working dog means being separated from Kimo. Can Zeus and his boy figure out how to stay together forever?
The first book in Cameron's new Dogs with a Purpose series, Zeus: Water Rescue is a fun, heartwarming adventure that will introduce young readers to the bravery and hard work of water rescue dogs.
