Joey Pigza is a boy with big ideas and a heart bigger than his best friend in the whole world—Pablo, his loving chihuahua. Joey returns in a second Audible Original, this time to help rescue all the local dogs that need good homes and to help the animal shelter get the word out about their “PETS MAKE PEOPLE BETTER” adoption event. But in a twist of fate, his own beloved chihuahua, Pablo, has been sent to keep Joey’s mother company in jail to help make her a better person! But how will Joey keep himself from worrying about Pablo’s fate in prison while helping the animal shelter find happy homes for all the local pets? The answer is dog costumes. Lots of them! And when all the barking is over it seems that pets just might make people better after all.
