Description

The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption brings you the story of survival and our powerful bond with man’s best friend, in the aftermath of the nation’s most notorious animal cruelty case. Animal lovers and sports fans were shocked when the story broke about NFL player Michael Vick’s brutal dog-fighting operation.

As acclaimed writer Jim Gorant reveals, their story is the truly newsworthy aspect of this case. The Lost Dogs traces the effort to bring Vick to justice and turns the spotlight on these infamous pit bulls, which were saved from euthanasia by an outpouring of public appeals coupled with a court order that Vick pay nearly a million dollars in "restitution" to the dogs. The story exposes the terrible practice of dog fighting and shows us that even after being subjected to heartbreaking abuse, above all, a dog still wants to be man’s best friend.

    My sister gave me this book and I finished it in three days. It was such a great book, so heartwarming to see all the love and care that went into saving the Micheal Vick dogs. I love pitbulls already but this dog just solidified that love. You'll want to speed read right to the end to see how the dogs all made out!
