I'm looking for a book, but I don't know the title. It's about a man who was captured by aliens to be a cute pet.

He REALLY doesn't want to be a pet. There were also a bunch of other creatures captured as well

  • The only other thing I know about it is that he REALLY doesn't want to be a pet, and a bunch of other creatures were captured as well – DannyPhantomFan Dec 7 '14 at 2:22
  • I saw it on goodreads – DannyPhantomFan Dec 7 '14 at 2:23
  • When did you read it? How long is it? Any recollections at all about the author? – The Fallen Dec 7 '14 at 2:53

    Probably not Leslie F. Stone's 1936 novella "The Human Pets of Mars" (reprinted in the Asimov-edited anthology Before the Golden Age), although it fits what little plot description you gave. – user14111 Dec 7 '14 at 4:43

Alan Dean Foster, The Taken Trilogy; Lost and Found, The Light-Years Beneath My Feet, The Candle of Distant Earth

Goodreads includes this in the description of the first book, Lost and Found:

he’s trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he’s just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of “cute” aliens from primitive planets—destined to be sold as pets to highly advanced populations in “civilized” regions of the galaxy.

There's also a talking dog.
