Overview

You can't judge a dog by its cover: The heroic story of a sweet, loyal pit bull pup that defies expectations and her breed's reputation to save the day--and the boy she loves!

11-year-old Mackenzie has got one friend in the whole world: Cash, his brown-eyed pit bull. His dad won the runt after a long night of gambling--ever since Mack's mom died, that's all he seems to do, and soon he erupts in a rage at the innocent pup, takes her away in the trunk of his car, and dumps her in the middle of nowhere. Mack vows to find Cash and bring her back home--he has to! All strays are about to be outlawed and put down. Little does Mack know that while he searches for Cash, she's surviving her own adventures and proving in the process that all dogs--even pit bulls--are born good

"DOG LOST is much more than a breathless page-turner. It's a brutally honest novel depicting the world of dogfighting in a wicked light but tempering any scenes of cruelty with an entire community of positive characters. And Lee brings together her winning, motley cast, human and animal, for a wonderfully heart-rousing ending. I loved it."--Ann M. Martin, author of A DOG'S LIFE

"A tough book, a tender book, and one I shan't forget." -- Michael Morpurgo, author of WAR HORSE and PRIVATE PEACEFUL

"Without moralizing, [Lee] argues that dogs, regardless of breed, can be trained to be violent--or not....Based on a true story, this moving, fast-paced tale will appeal to fans of SHILOH." -- Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Shedding light on the plight of pit bulls, Canadian writer Ingrid Lee has created what at first reading appears to be an urban fable but is actually a novel based on a true story. "Cash," a sweet, misunderstood pit bull, comes into a young boy's life after his alcoholic father wins her in a card game. Cash is lost from her family and goes on to be an "angel" to others throughout the city as she attempts to find her way home. The city, at this time, is trying to crack down on strays, particularly pit bulls, since a great deal of dogfighting is going on. Accurately detailed police activity, urban violence and dysfunctional family situations are spread throughout the book. The chain link illustrations for each page number and barbed wire chapter break are interesting and tie in well with the cover art. Some of the dialogue does not ring true; however, this modern retelling of a "boy's lost dog" story will interest many young readers, both boys and girls. Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman
School Library Journal

Gr 4-6

Mackenzie's father wins a pit bull puppy in a card game and, in an uncharacteristic gesture of kindness, gives her to his son. From the moment Cash enters the boy's life, she is a bright spot in a sea of darkness. With Mackenzie's mother dead and his father uninterested in raising him, he and Cash must take care of themselves in their rough neighborhood. Things go smoothly as long as they stay out of Dad's way, but when Cash tries to defend Mackenzie from one of his father's rages, the furious man takes the dog away. Life on the streets is not easy, but Cash has brains and a warm heart and survives until she's captured by a teenager who is part of a dog-fighting ring. After she escapes, Cash begins to perform brave deeds, dispelling local concern about the viciousness of pit bulls. All the while, boy and dog continue to search for one another. The writing is not stellar, and the ending predictably pat, but the simply told story is gripping. The kindness of some neighbors and the unfair attitudes of others toward the breed raise questions about stereotypes and fairness, making this an interesting book group selection.-Sarah Provence, Churchill Road Elementary School, McLean, VA

Kirkus Reviews
In her first novel published in the United States, Canadian author Lee takes on negative attitudes toward pit bulls with this tender story about a boy and his dog. Eleven-year-old Mackenzie O'Rourke's dysfunctional home offers him little comfort until his widowed, alcoholic father brings home a pit-bull puppy won in a card game. Mackenzie christens the dog Cash, and the two become inseparable. Months later, Cash fiercely defends Mac from his drunken father's rage. Angered by the dog's ferocity, Mr. O'Rourke takes Cash and abandons her in a field. Throughout the next several months, Cash barely survives. Meanwhile, as a debate about outlawing the owning of pit bulls heats up in town, a mysterious pit bull performs several acts of bravery. Is it Cash? Will it be enough to change voters' opinion? Without moralizing, the author argues that dogs, regardless of breed, can be trained to be violent-or not. Several scenes where dogs are treated cruelly are well presented. Based on a true story, this moving, fast-paced tale will appeal to fans of Shiloh. (Fiction. 9-12)
