Description

Peg the little sheepdog is too shy to be a good farm dog. All Peg's brothers and sisters have found new homes -- but who wants a sheepdog that's scared of lambs?

Peg is lonely until a new family move in nearby and take her home. They love her but Peg isn't used to living in a house and she's still not very brave. Will she ever be a good family dog?

This touching story of family love and teaching a new pet is a wonderful companion to Sandra Klaassen's much-loved Uan the Little Lamb. Her heartwarming illustrations abound with gentle fun and the beauty of the Scottish Hebrides.
