When Oogy was four months old and weighed thirty five pounds he was tied to a stake and used as bait for a Pit Bull. The left side of his face from just behind his eye was torn off, including his ear. He was bitten so hard a piece of his jaw bone was crushed. Afterward, he was thrown into a cage and left to bleed to death. He is alive & doing great today with a new family and there is a great book about his life. I love Oogy!!!

Pitbull: Banned in Sweden, as well as parts of the United States, and micro-chipped and legally registered in the UK, the Pitbull, has been an unfortunate victim of morally bankrupt ownership and media frenzy. Despite their infamous reputation, pitbulls are an affectionate and personable breed. Petey of Little Rascal's fame remains the most famous pitbull. This true American breed once nicknamed the Yankee Terrier, makes a wonderful family addition.
