by Leslie Gentile

ISBN: 9781770867079

Format: Trade Paperback

Size: 5.375" x 8.00"


The name’s Shamus. I'm a special kind of dog. I'm what's known as a Rez Dog. That means I’m a mix of different dog breeds and I come from a reserve. As far as I know, I am a mix of German shepherd, husky, and border collie. I was a surprise from Rainey and Cole’s uncle. Mom is still warming up to me, but the twins love having me around.


Life was great — busting out of the yard, chasing Mr. Tibbles around the neighbourhood, snooping through garbage bins — until Mom was accused of stealing from the family-owned jewelry store she’s worked at for years. She couldn’t possibly have done it, so the kids and I set out to catch the real thief with some surprising and, if I do say so myself, hilarious results, including a false wall, a lucky bowling ball, and a vicious poodle named Hepzibah.

Shamus the Urban Rez Dog,  P.I_


“The view from the doghouse isn’t half bad, and Shamus the Urban Rez Dog should know. As a pup, he’s got lots to learn about becoming that ‘well-behaved dog,’ but as a P.I., this dog can sniff out a clue like no-puppy else (as long as he avoids those Thai leftovers).”

— Angela Misri, author of Tails from the Apocalypse and the Portia Adams Adventure Series
