Story Summary

Jared loved spending summers at his grand parents farm. But with each summer a local pack of wild dogs was getting bolder. They had already killed Nick, grandpa's courageous hound and Nick's son, Monty, just didn't have the fighting spirit. When Jared came face to face with the pack, he knew he was a goner, until a mysterious dog with one eye and a torn ear threw himself into the pack. Jared's grandpa claims it couldn't have been Nick, but Jared wasn't so sure.
