One day, Bobby and Sandy catch a pickpocket and as a reward Sandy is given a new home, but the loyal pup can't go with him. Then Bobby remembers John Gray, the kindly constable...

This timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and finding a home is perfect for young dog lovers and visitors to Scotland. Historically detailed illustrations from Elena Bia bring life to a gripping story from author Michelle Sloan. Readers both young and old will be moved by the story of how Bobby became the world's most famous dog.
