From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-- In this latest high quality offering from a prolific author, 14-year-old Cesare "Sox" Newmann's beloved black German shepherd, Heidi, is stolen by criminals intent on turning purebred watchdogs into vicious guard dogs that they can sell. The tough neighborhood of the Albuquerque setting, the supportive family, and the local vernacular of the convincing first-person narrative are incorporated into this plausible mystery. Reluctant readers will be attracted not only to the book's brevity but also to the level of suspense maintained; the story won't disappoint them. Smoothly written and nicely paced, the mystery's predictable conclusion conveys a message in Sox's realization that his fears of being a "chicken" are unfounded in the face of his heroism. His rescue mission provides an exciting climax, and the book contains a nice plug for libraries as sources of important information. --Connie Tyrrell Burns, Mahoney Middle Sch . , South Portland, ME
