1. The Call of the Wild by Jack London

2. White Fang by Jack London

How to forget the most famous of Jack London's books. While White Fang is half dog half wolf, it's worth making this list. His story shows us different facets of the human, including those that we would rather not know, through the life of an animal that cannot find his place in the world.

3. A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron

This wonderful New York Times bestseller tells us the story of Bailey, a puppy who discovers the meaning of his life through the impact it has on the humans that make up his family. The story is as endearing as it is unforgettable.
