Poor Patty. She just moved to a new town with her mom, and she doesnít have any friends. Her mother tells her it might take some time to find some, but even as the days go by, she still has none.

Then one day, Pattyís mom tells her she has a surprise for her. Patty is so excited! They get in the car and arrive at an animal shelter. Patty becomes more excited when she realizes why they are there: Patty will be allowed to take one of the dogs home with her! She sees a cute brown dog with white spots and decides she loves him the most, so Patty names her new friend Vinnie.

But Patty becomes devastated when she learns she has to wait five days before she can take Vinnie home in case Vinnieís owner comes to claim him. What will she do if she canít bring her new best friend home with her?
