Saving Audie A Pit Bull Puppy Gets a Second Chance by Dorothy Hinshaw Patent, William Munoz

When Michael Vick's dog fighting ring was discovered, more than forty dogs were rescued. But their struggle still wasn't over. Most animal advocates believed rescued fighting dogs were too damaged to adopt, but Audie and his kennel mates would prove them wrong when the public outcry and the publicity surrounding Michael Vick's punishment won them a chance at a happy life. Teaming up once again with William Mu oz, photo-essay veteran Dorothy Hinshaw Patent gives a powerful account of how Audie and his fellow Vick dogs were rescued, rehabilitated, and adopted.
