D.J. doesn’t see any harm in unfastening the leash from his little dog Hero for a run in the mountains. But that simple act causes the boy a world of fear and pain. D.J. is surprised when the hound doesn’t return. To make matters worse, he learns that a rabid dog has bitten a little diabetic boy – a dog that resembles Hero. Like Hero, the boy and the rabid dog have all disappeared into the mountain.
The boy’s father sets out to find his son and destroy the dog. In a race against time to find and save Hero, D.J. discovers the little boy unconscious and in desperate need of medical aid. But the mad dog prevents D.J. from going for help and there is no way to call for anyone else.
In this fifth book in the D.J. Dillon series, the boy learns that even a little irresponsible act can cause big trouble.
A glossary is included in the back of the book.
