His name is Dumpster Dog. He sleeps outside, walks himself, and eats whatever he wants, whenever he wants. But a life outdoors isn't everything—Dumpster Dog needs a friend. So begins Dumpster Dog's search for a human companion. But he will soon learn that finding a good owner isn't as easy as it sounds, and that the world can be a dangerous place.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS
"This chapter book—already popular in France, where it has been made into a hit TV show—is for kids who can appreciate a little more action and a lot more voice in their reading. (There's more than a hint of Lemony Snicket's dark hilarity in Gutman's writing.)" —Jenny Rosenstrach, The New York Times
"an ideal; entertaining and unreservedly recommended"—The Midwest Book Review
”The colored illustrations are cute, charming and very expressive. Dumpster Dog and his story come completely to life.” —Katrina Yurenka, Youth Services Book Review
