Shiloh is a very sad book about a beagle dog who is abused by his alcoholic owner. After being abused for so long he runs away and comes upon a little boy named Marty. Marty instantly grows a bond between the dog and names him Shiloh. Marty really wants to keep the dog and make it his own. However, his father knows the owner of the beagle is Judd. His father demands that they take it back to Judd and he cannot keep it. Once the dog is abused again he decides to run back to Marty. Marty then decides that he will keep the dog in a shed not far from the house. Though, Shiloh gets attacked by a stray dog and Marty has no other choice to turn to his father for help. This book really melts peoples heart. I wouldn't suggest it for younger children, considering it is talking about abuse. On another note, the picture on the cover really explains the whole book in a nut shell. It explains the bond between this young boy and his best pal, Shiloh.
