Called the “Vicktory Dogs” by many, the 47 pit bulls who survived Michael Vick’s cruelty have struck a chord with the nation. The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption tells the tale of how the dogs came to be rescued, and the extraordinary lengths that some very caring people went through to make sure the dogs got a second chance. We read this amazing book when it first came out, but it has now been updated with a new afterword that tells the story about some of the dogs! We were really excited to read it, as the book completely drew us in the first time (you can read our review here).
Some are now certified therapy workers and many are adored family members, proving that pit bulls, just like any other dog, just want to be man’s best friend.
In THE LOST DOGS: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption Jim Gorant tells their inspirational story of survival and presents the entire account —from the frustrations of the investigation to the individual rehabilitation of the dogs themselves, to a new afterword updating us on the happy lives they now have. We have a copy to give to one lucky reader! Would you like a chance to win the book?
