Desert Dog was written by Jim Kjelgaard in 1975. The setting for the story is a desert somewhere in the western United States. Tawny is a racing greyhound who finds himself free in the desert. He learns to cope with the harsh conditions, finding water, hunting food and avoiding predators. Unlike many dog stories, this one has a happy ending for all.
