Ben can’t wait to adopt the best dog in the world. On a trip to the shelter, he sees dogs of all kinds, but none of them are quite right.
Then he finds Sadie. Sadie is big—really big. She says “roar” instead of “woof” and she doesn’t fit inside the house, but Ben knows she’s the best dog in the world. Now if only she could stop causing so much trouble!
Dogosaurus Rex is a hilarious tale of a very special dog (with a prehistoric twist) that will have you roaring—just like Sadie.
