About This Item

Set the record straight with I'm a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America's Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet. Filled with inspiring stories and photographs, this heartfelt tribute to the pit bull celebrates one of America’s most popular yet misunderstood dogs. Perhaps more than any other breed, the pit bull has been dogged by negative stereotypes, when in truth they are innately wonderful family pets that are just as capable of love and good deeds as any other dog. That’s why Ken Foster sings the praises of pit bulls in I’m a Good Dog, a gorgeously illustrated and tenderly written tribute to the most misunderstood of canines.

Ken Foster has made it his mission to bring these overlooked canines into the limelight. I’m a Good Dog traces the fascinating history of this breed, starting with a century ago when the pit bull was considered a family dog, featured in family photos and trusted as loyal companions for children. But more recently, they have been portrayed to the media as stereotypes of everything they are not—and Foster shatters this maligned reputation with moving profiles of pit bulls that serve as therapy dogs, athletic heroes, search-and-rescue dogs, educators, and perhaps most importantly, loving pets. He also profiles many pit bull lovers, from Helen Keller and Dr. Seuss to actor Todd Cerveris. Proving there is much to love and nothing to fear, this book restores the pit bull to its rightful place as friend, family member, athlete and entertainer.

Love it! Amazing photos!

I have never had a pit bull but I love pit bulls. The stories show how beautiful this breed is and how misunderstood they are.

The truth about Pit Bulls is not what you think! They are beautiful dogs in all ways. Very talented, loving, good with children to name just a few of their qualities. And they LOVE to give big sloppy kisses! They have gentle souls. I highly recommend this book for any one wondering about this breed.

Great great book, thanks!

Thank you, I was one of the misinformed as the book portrays. Accidentally adopted a pittie from the pound three years ago and it was the best mistake I ever made. The pictures and stories are so true. Don't knock them until you have had the opportunity to love them.

Must read info on a wonderful type of dog!!

This book does a great job explaining the truth about this wonderful type of dog. They get a bad rap and people need to stop making assumptions. I’ve had many dogs over the years but never a pit until we fostered an American Staffie a few years ago. We fell in love and she is still here. We’ve never had a dog so full of love and just wanting to be by her “people.” She loves everyone. Especially kids! Couldn’t be happier than playing with kids or catching her beloved frisbees. It’s so incredibly sad how misunderstood these dogs are. The good news is perception seems to be changing and this book can help!

Very inane

More of the same misleading propaganda in favor of a breed. Unfortunately, the author takes very little time to acknowledge the challenges and dangers that are well documented with pit bulls.
