From Booklist:

Gr. 2^-3. For new readers ready for meatier fare, this taut story of a true blue dog will work well. J.D., the story's narrator, introduces her dog, Blue, who has "some sharp nose" and can smell trouble a mile away. When Blue disappears, J.D. searches for him, worrying that he has been shot by poachers. A dog has been shot, but it's not Blue, it's Molasses, a friend's dog. Blue, who has stayed with Molasses through the night, leads J.D. to him, and she gets the injured dog to a vet just in time. So many easy-to-reads are set in either suburbia or the city. This book's rural setting has a freshness that will appeal to many children who'll see their lifestyle reflected in J.D.'s. Ilene Cooper
