Overview

Bandit is an adorable black and white Shih Tzu with a mask-like marking over his eyes. Lizzie discovers him at a highway rest stop restaurant. He was abandoned by his owers because he needs an operation and they couldn't afford it. Lizzie and her family take Bandit in and begin fundraising for the expensive procedure. Maria and her Uncle Teo are also a big help. Maria and Lizzie establish competing dog-walking businesses to raise funds. Everyone who meets Bandit falls instantly in love - except for Uncle Teo, who thinks he's a little too small and fluffy. In the end, Bandit's operation is a success. Uncle Teo is won over by the resilient puppy and agrees to adopt him.

Read an Excerpt

Lizzie unfolded the paper. “ 'This is Bandit,' ” she read out loud. Bandit. What a perfect name, because of the black mask around his eyes. She smiled at the puppy. “Hi, Bandit,” she said softly. She still could not get over how cute this puppy was. He looked like a stuffed toy. She wanted to gather him up and hug him and –“Lizzie, the note!” Maria said. “What does it say?” She craned her neck, trying to read over Lizzie's shoulder.Lizzie looked back at the note. “ 'Bandit is a Shih Tzu. He is six months old, and we love our little boy very, very much,' ” she read. “ 'But the vet says he needs a special operation for his heart, and we just can't afford that, not if we also want to feed our kids. So we hope you can find someone who can help, before he gets any sicker.' ”
