Overview

Canine heroes Max, Rocky, and Gizmo return in this exciting series finale! As the trio travel south, following a trail of beacons left by Dr. Lynn, they encounter a stampede of horses. The horses urge the dogs to turn back, warning about a "silver wall of doom" that lies ahead.

But the warning only serves to motivate Max. Could this be the wall from his dreams? The wall keeping Max from his family? Helped by animals along the way — including bats and armadillos — the dogs find themselves deep in the desert, where they face a new enemy: coyotes. They aren't the only danger, though. Dolph and his wolf pack lie in wait — poised for a final showdown.

The Last Dogs: Journey's End is the final book in a thrilling series about three unlikely friends on an epic quest to find their people — and bring them home.

Perfect for Animal and Adventure Lovers! The Last Dogs, Journey’s End is the fourth book in a thrilling fictional adventure series. Max, the Golden Retriever, Rocky, the Dachshund, and Gizmo, the Yorkshire Terrier are on an epic quest to find their humans and bring them back home. Their adventures were set in motion by a deadly virus with a mysterious past. The virus had mutated to become dangerous to humans, but did not affect animals in the same way. Since Max, Rocky and Gizmo were no longer a danger to humans, they can now track down their owners. The dogs face many obstacles which they must overcome to reach their goal. These range from being chased by a pack of wolves, being ambushed by coyotes, and crossing a broken-down railroad track spanning a perilous gorge. My favorite part of the quest was the railroad track crossing. The dogs showed bravery and overcame their fears to conquer this obstacle. Friendship and teamwork helped them support one another. Max was a great leader, and Rocky uses his wits to outsmart the wolves. The author does a great job describing this scene with tension and thrills. I recommend this book to boys and girls ages 8-12 who like animals and adventure. Review by Young Mensan Brooke Z., age 7, Delaware Valley Mensa
