Sagebrush lived with her parents Maverick and Ginger and they were house dogs of the young Miss, who was kind. The young Miss owned the ranch which had cows, horses, and ranch dogs. It was a beautiful ranch. Sagebrush was up that morning and she decided to take a stroll before breakfast. She decided to explore the woods and she strayed farther and farther away from home. Since she was smelling the earth and walking, she did not really pay attention to where she was going. On that same day, Shuns were going about their business as keepers of the forest and they saw a tailless creature smelling flowers and making her way into the forest. Sagebrush became friends with Sprout and Shroom and they showed her how their homes were getting lost due to humans clearing the forests. Would the Shuns be left homeless? How does Sagebrush, together with the young Miss, help them?

Corky Tales of a Tailless Dog Named Sagebrush: Sagebrush Meets the Shuns by Joni Franks is an adorable story that helps young readers understand the importance of protecting Mother Earth so that everyone has a place which they can call home.
