Part of the Puppy Place Series. Lizzie works at her aunts doggie day care. A very energetic pug runs the risk of being given to the local humane society if his behavior does not improve. Lizzie tries taking Pugsley on as a foster dog to see what she can do to help his behavior.

1st graders seem to love these.

Pugsley is a great book it's about a girl named Lizzie that finds a pug named Pugsley at her Aunt Amanda's puppy day care.

Character Trait- Worried because she thinks she won't be able to go to Camp Bowser.

I think the most important event is when she went to Camp Bowser and Pugsley's behavior improved.

I recommend this book for anyone who likes puppies.
This is the second of this series I've read to my daughter. Such cute books and I even enjoy them myself! The series is about a family who fosters dogs who need homes but need a bit of help in training etc before a good home is found. This little Pug will melt your heart, such a little naughty thing its hard to believe he was trainable. The new "forever home" was a pleasant surprise!

Okay, so it's not great literature, but I liked it. Just goes to show that interest and background knowledge make all the difference. This book kinda makes me want to quit teaching and start up a doggie daycare, or at the very least, go out and buy another pug! I wonder what Sydney would think of that?

This was an AWESOME book!!! I liked this book because there was a VERY cute puppy named pugsley (shown on cover) And a girl named Lizzie and her family is a foster family for dogs. pugsley is small and cute:) but is a trouble maker. this was a long soothing book with laughs,cuties,etc.

I thought that this book was really cute. I think that most students would enjoy this book because they probably have a dog as a pet. I thought that this book could be a good introduction book for a lesson about dogs. I really enjoyed it and I think that students would, as well.

lizzies family are major animal lovers. they take in dogs til the dogs find a good home. she was working at her aunts doggie daycare when she met the dog named pugsley. pugsleys owners gave him up and lizzie wants to take in the dog. this book was kinda lame(:

The fact that I bought this book I think proves that I will buy anything with a pug on it, Good book for children on how to take care of a pet, but I wouldn't recommend for the kids at the elementary school I work at.
Beth brought this home from school as she's read a few in the series but I had to read this one because those adorable puppies eyes on the front made me. I had it done in about an hour and now I want another pug puppy.
Very cute book about an adorable little pug named Pugsley. He has no home, and finds one at the Puppy Place.

I read this book to my daughter at 6 years old, and she just re-read it at 8. She loved it both times.
This book was alright. Maybe it's because I have a weakness for pugs or maybe not. I definitely prefer it to Goldie. It was quite easy to read and certainly not very entertaining but I sort of liked it.

****Spoiler Alert****

Mr. Pest (Pugsley's nickname) got into more trouble (not good for Lizzie and Charles, but fun for the reader). I am glad they found a cure for him in the end.
