Now that Andi and Bruce are no longer running a hotel for dogs, they decide to start up a new venture: a newspaper for dogs.
Hoping to use the money to buy a dog from a neighborhood bully, the two use it as a moneymaking technique. The newspaper is a big hit, but they attract some unwanted attention. When the newspaper gets out of hand, their parents shut it down.
But then the dogs who were featured in the paper start disappearing, and their abductors begin demanding a ransom from people on fixed incomes. When Bruce's new dog that he got from the bully disappears, as well, the two suspect that their friends might be behind the dognappings.
Can Andi and Bruce find the kidnapped dogs?

The plot keeps moving and the mystery is well-developed. Those who like mysteries, animal stories, and realistic fiction will enjoy reading NEWS FOR DOGS.
