Will Jax Ever Get Out of the Dog House?

Jax Wants His Person Back…but Instead He’s Alone and Lonely in Out of the Dog House

by Sandy De Lisle and Stephanie Itle-Clark
Illustrated by Nina Robichaud

Jax used to live a cushy life inside a house with fuzzy blankets and a comfy chair. Suddenly his person can no longer care for him, and he finds himself living in a stranger’s backyard and missing his best human friend.

He misses his warm bed, squeaky ball, and bowls with his name on them. Most of all, though, he misses his person’s gentle scratches under his chin and the way he said, “Good boy, Jax.”

Will the kind animal control officer succeed in helping Jax get out of the doghouse and into the warm home of his new family? Find out in Out of the Dog House, perfect for ages 8 and up. Out of the Dog House is great for classroom and humane education efforts, too, and includes educational information and questions to provoke classroom discussion.
