The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption


I pre-ordered the Jim Gorant book, The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption (Gotham Books, 2010), from amazon recently, and it came yesterday, and I finished it that day because I couldn't put it down.  Well written!  Good background on dog breeds, Vick, various people who were part of the investigation and the intervention on behalf of the rescued dogs, which came close to being put down because they were pit bulls and fighting dogs.  Individual dog and people stories are interwoven with the background in increments, which is suspenseful.  Excellent book and worth reading if you want to know what happened to the people and dogs involved.  There's a wrap-up at the end.
