Lav and his friends are the first of their kind, genetically modified to be wonderful pets. They quickly teach the humans that modifying DNA is easy, compared to controlling the animals that are created. Join the adventures that help them discover where they belong in this world, and what they are meant to do.

If you enjoy stories that are told from an animal's perspective, this should be at the top of your reading list. Purple Pup is one of those special books that you will always remember.

Jennifer's Review
It’s a wonderful book and I really enjoyed reading it. 
It’s about a purple pup named Lav who, along with a green dog named Kama, escape from the lab where people are doing experiments on animals such as dogs, a lion, a gorilla, fish, etc. 
Lav soon finds a young boy and his father and gets adopted, but when the lab finds out, they take Lav back. Lav escapes again with Kama and another dog named Crypt. They join a wolf pack, but when the humans from the lab find them, it’s back to the lab. 
Eventually the dogs and other animals find homes with people and start doing what they were created to do. It’s a sweet story, and parts might make you mad or sad, but later, near the end, it’s all a happy ending. 
5 stars!
