Far from Burden Dell
Chris Coppel
Amy, a pampered young Golden Retriever, is stolen by ruthless smugglers from her home in rural England and taken to a grim London prison. A bold escape with her fellow prisoners--a weepy but learned Spaniel, two stalwart Dobermans, a vain Afghan, and an ingenious Yorkshire Terrier, takes the friends through the perils of London, from crossing busy streets, escaping a vicious pack of rats in the pitch-black London Underground, rushing from Harrod's Food Court, running over London Bridge, hiding out in Hyde Park, to racing from the guards at Buckingham Palace, always pursued by their criminal captors. But can the courageous, often terrified, friends escape recapture and their grim prison, as well as capture by the police--and possibly the dog pound--to find their way home? Ages 10 and up.

Distraught, Amy becomes a target for "dognappers" who lock her up in a horrible kennel with a bunch of other dogs. Despairing at first, Amy's hopes rise when she and some others succeed in escaping from the kennel.
