Animal Haven is a temporary home for all sorts of Australian wildlife, although there are a few permanent residents as well, like Oscar the owl, Fur Bag the possum, Cinnamon the koala and Alice the labrador. Meg and Mike live there, too, and they work so hard to help their parents rescue and look after the animals that the locals at Jeff's Creek have nicknamed them the Aussie Angels.
Trying to get some attention from the Aussie Angels, Mike and Meg, can be a tough job, even when you're the top dog at Animal Haven. Alice the labrador is surrounded by orphaned wallabies and possums, and then there's that camel and emu and there are all the other residents and visitors! But Alice is determined to carve out her own career. She can smell trouble in the air, and her motto is always "Have nose, will travel". But Alice's travels lead her into some frightening adventures.
DOG ON THE JOB is the eleventh instalment in a series loved by children all over Australia.
