Pit Bulls & Pit Bull Type Dogs
82 Dogs the Media Doesn't Want You to MeetBook - 2011
82 portraits and stories of pit bulls and pit bull type dogs that will forever change your attitude about this "breed." This book is about all pit bull type dogs (not just American Pit Bull Terriers) that are discriminated against because they have a certain look and are therefore labeled as "pit bulls." 10 former Michael Vick pit bulls (including cover dog Jonny Justice, Uba, Hector, Handsome Dan and Cherry), Oogy (from the New York Times best-selling book by the same name), Wallace the Pit Bull (the king of canine disc), Sarge the Elderbull, Phillies Second Baseman Chase Utley & his wife Jennifer's rescued pit bull Jack, Pinups for Pitbulls founder Deirdre "Little Darling" Franklin's dogs Carla Lou & Baxter Bean, and many other gorgeous dogs whose stories and character-packed photos expose pit bulls as "the dogs next door." A percentage of the book's proceeds are donated to animal rescue, with an emphasis on pit bull rescue & advocacy groups.
