Answers to Brut by Gillian Rubenstein

I think this story would be suitable for young people between the ages of 11 to 14 years. This story is about a boy named Caspian and his bull terrier,Brut, which he really adores. Kel, a neighbour, decides to "borrow" Brut intending to only have him for the weekend. However, Kel's dad decides to sell the dog much to his distress. The adventure really begins when Caspian finds out what has happened. Brut has been sold to a dog fighting syndicate. This book won the NSW Premier's Award for Children's Literature in 1988 and also was Book of the Year for the Children's Book Council the following year.
