    In the bestselling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted.In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their terminally ill cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What would begin as a terrible day suddenly got brighter as the ugliest dog they had ever seen--one who was missing an ear and had half his face covered in scar tissue--ran up to them and captured their hearts. The dog had been used as bait for fighting dogs when he was just a few months old. He had been thrown in a cage and left to die until the police rescued him and the staff at Ardmore Animal Hospital saved his life. The Levins, whose sons are themselves adopted, were unable to resist Oogy's charms, and decided to take him home. Heartwarming and redemptive, OOGY is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him "Oogy" (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own. - definitely a story worth reading <3

Adopt don't shop! Kellee P. I forgot to tell you!! I saw an Internet ad somewhere awhile back for a dog, or a litter of dogs...whatever. And the poster ACTUALLY SAID, "Do not ask to see photos of the parents, or the price increases to X." I was floored!

Sometimes this can be true. When you rescue a dog it can add years to your life. When my mom rescued her dog she said she gained a friend not just a puppy! Even though they might not be pure breed they will still be your friend and to me that is worth way more :)

Stop buying puppies from backyard breeders. Be apart of the solution rather than the problem. Adopt and save a life.
