Pitbull, Pit Bull, Favorite Book
Oogy by Larry Levin-- the story of the rescued dog- fight bait dog Oogy, who was near death, missing his left ear and severely deformed, when he was adopted by Larry Levin into a family of animal lovers. Oogy's owner takes us through the ups and downs of his recovery, tugging at heart strings with his dog's truly remarkable story.
Being an animal lover I’m a little biased to how great this book was…. But I think it’d take a person without a heart to be at least a little touched by the story of Oogy. Oogy is a rescue dog who was horribly disfigured, apparently as a bait dog to train fighting dogs. The poor dog suffered through his pain and despite the odds was nursed back to health by a vet who did all Oogy’s work for free!
Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love by Larry Levin (Oct 18 2011): Larry Levin: Amazon.com: Books Best book I have EVER read, hands down. If you're a dog lover, it's a must read.
Oogy must read! Story about a pitbull used as a bait dog and left for dead in a fighting cage. Learn about the wonderful family hat took him in and how he survived! It's not the breed or the dog, its the heartless idiots that turn them into violent creatures.... They should be used as bait!
Oogy- the story of a dog that was mistaken for a Pit Bull, used as a bait dog in a fighting ring, and got a second chance for love and a family.
A friend loaned this to me. "Oogy" by Larry Levin. If you love dogs, you'll love this book. It's a story about a dog that nearly died as a result of being used as bait for fighting pit bulls until it was rescued by police and adopted by a family. Such a contrast between the worst and the best in people.
OOGY by Larry Levin. A heartwarming memoir of one man's connection to his rescue dog. Such a great book!
My favorite book ever!!!
Last year, a week after Christmas, my son, Joe, adopted a dog. He has been living in Las Vegas for nearly three years, has an apartment with a terrace in a complex with lots of space. Owning a dog seemed like a great idea. He visited a shelter and brought home a rescue dog, Snoop, a female pit bull. When he called to tell me, I was apprehensive. Pit bulls, along with several other breeds, have had a lot of bad press in New York. In fact, many of these large dogs are now banned from apartments run by the city’s Housing Authority. I was worried about Snoop being aggressive, possibly attacking or biting someone. A month later, I visited my son and was totally won over. Snoop is affectionate, playful, loyal, and a lot of fun. We don’t know what Snoop’s life was like before my son adopted her. As a rescue dog, we assume that she had a tough time. Yet we are continually amazed at her good nature. I thought a lot about Snoop while reading Oogy, Larry Levin’s beautiful story about the horribly abused dog that his family adopted. Police near Philadelphia found Oogy when staging [...]
