Annie Shearer lives in the country town of Upson Downs with her best friend, an adopted stray dog called Runt. The two share a very special bond. After years evading capture, Runt is remarkably fast and agile, perfect for herding runaway sheep. But when a greedy local landowner puts her family\'s home at risk, Annie directs Runt\'s extraordinary talents towards a different pursuit - winning the Agility Course Grand Championship at the lucrative Krumpets Dog Show in London. However, there is a curious catch: Runt will only obey Annie\'s commands if nobody else is watching. Can Annie and Runt work together to save the farm? A heart-warming story of love, friendship and persistence. Highly Recommended.
