Pit Bull Heroes: 49 Underdogs with Resilience and Heart (Hardcover)
A celebration of pit bulls doing a world of good.
Pit Bull Heroes spotlights forty-nine underdogs who beat the odds and became heroes in their families, neighborhoods, and communities. Meet Chad, found on a street corner, who now serves as the first pit bull in the pet therapy program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia; Apollo, who finished first in his police training and now sniffs out narcotics at his full-time job in Washington State; and Charlie, who rallied an entire community to fight breed-specific legislation laws in Lakewood, Ohio. All pit bulls; all heroes in their own way.
Animal advocate and photographer Greg Murray captures these pit bull heroes in their day-to-day lives and shares their inspiring stories.
Helpful resources show how you, too, can become an advocate for pit bulls and animal safety in your community.
