"Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love" by Larry Levin

Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love
Oogy by Larry Levin is a story of a family who adopted a very gentle but beat up dog that had been used as bait for dog fights because he wouldn't fight.  He lost one ear, the left side of his face, and a broken jaw but the police found the pup and took it to a veterinarian who cared enough to go above and beyond to save it's life because of its sweet disposition.  This book is about the dog everyone thought was a pit bull that was actually a Dogo--a breed I never heard of before.  I felt sorry for the poor dog because of all the pain it suffered, but happy that he found such a loving family that gave him a good life! It was an enjoyable read.

Oogy is the true story of Larry Levin who rescues a "Bait Dog."  You will have to read the book to find out the meaning of that term.  He comes out with the name "Oogy."  The book details how he and his family incorporated Oogy in their lives.  This book is okay, a nice story.  I don't think it's anything special.  I've read better dog books for sure.

  1. I just read about this story in Ladies Home Journal. It is such a touching story. I didn't realize it was a book. Thanks for your review. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure how they would fill a whole book with that story. Have a great day-
