Shortly after he gets the perfect dog, Riley, eleven-year old William must fight for his dog's life after Riley is taken away because he chases and injures an elderly neighbor's old horse.
  BLTSbraille | Oct 5, 2021 |
Eleven-year-old William has lost a lot in the past two months. His beloved grandpa recently passed away; his father moved out of the house; and William is left to pick up the pieces and deal with these difficult changes. That's when Riley, a large golden Labrador, bounds unexpectedly into his life and becomes his faithful companion. However, when Riley chases the neighbor's prize-winning horse, which is against the town law, William may lose yet another loved one. If William wants to save Riley from being put to sleep, he will have to summon all his courage and determination to win this fight.
