DOGTOWN: Tales of Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Redemption.  The book follows the stories of desperate dogs and their dedicated caretakers at Dogtown, the Best Friends Animal Society shelter in Utah that believes in second chances, and portrays the powerful bond between the animals and the people who help them (it is also the first companion book to the National Geographic Channel’s hit show “DogTown”).  The book is a compelling testament to the fact that through love and devotion, dogs can be given a second chance at life. 

Misfit and traumatized dogs, puppies rescued from puppy mills and war-zone trauma cases, the books tells the stories of 15 of the most memorable and touching cases, including Georgia, a pit bull rescued from Michael Vick’s illegal dog-fighting operation, and Tuffy, whose spirit never flagged after being rescued from a hoarder.  The compelling tales draw on the experiences of veterinarians, trainers and volunteers and in the end, we come to see that there are no “bad dogs” and that with patience and compassion, people can help dogs heal.  

The book will appeal to animal and dog lovers alike and anyone interested in inspirational stories of perseverance and hope.  (It would also make for a wonderful gift this upcoming holiday season!)

The book is also available from the National Geographic website, www.nationalgeographic.com, and wherever books are sold.
