by Claire Garth, illustrated by Johannes Leak

This is the fifth book in the Grover McBane, Rescue Dog series but all can be read in any order you choose. 

Grover sees the car boot filled with suitcases, toys and dog food. This can only mean one thing – road trip! Grover can’t wait to hit the road – but his owner, Claire, has a special guest to pick up from the animal shelter first.

Squeak is a rescued kelpie puppy. He needs a new home on a farm, where he’ll have lots of room to run around. But Grover has always lived in the city. How can he help Squeak find a new forever home? What will happen to Squeak? Where will he go?
