Overview

Meet Doguar - mind of a Zen monk, body of an Airedale Terrier
Doguar is a genetically enhanced Airedale Terrier with near-human intelligence. But is he smart enough to stop the evil genetics corporation? Will he defuse the time-bomb in his own DNA? And can he save his beloved Ruby from the men who want to dissect her brain?
A biopunk adventure for middle graders, young adults and adults.
Doguar is born in a genetics laboratory, part of an experiment to create animals with near-human levels of intelligence. Devoted to Professor Wainwright, the genius behind the project, he lives sheltered in the lab alongside a tribe of baboons and fellow Airedale, Ruby.
His world is torn apart when the secretive investors move in, intent on turning the baboons into a platoon of special forces.
His friends are seized, the Professor is kidnapped, and the only one who can save them is Doguar.
A story of armed baboons, ancient riddles, and a genetically enhanced talking dog with a human neo-cortex.
Volume one of The Tales of Doguar.
