Pit lover or not the nation was shocked by the actions of a star athlete and his dog fighting. Jim Gorant reports the grueling facts of the case that brought dog fighting to the nation’s spotlight. Told based on the facts with a creative prospective from the dogs this book is a must read. Keep the tissue close because the horror these dogs lived through (though some did not) will have tears welling in your eyes before you know it. A riveting read that grips your heart because under it all you know it’s a true story of the dark side of humans and the amazing forgiveness that animals give readily. But more than anything it answers the question, can a fighting dog truly be anything but just that?

“The most important legacy of the Vick dogs may be the idea that all dogs must be evaluated individually. Not as Vick dogs, or fighting dogs or pit bulls, but as Jasmine and Alf and Ziggy.”
