Fantastic book about pit bulls and their humans
Reviewed in the United States on November 7, 2017
I loved the story, especially since it portrayed pit bulls as the wonderful and complex dogs they are. The fact that these two dogs had been fought and had won but were the farthest from the killers they're too often portrayed in the media was heartwarming to me.
I've had two pitties--one was a therapy dog for 11 years; the other is a shelter rescue who is currently my service dog.
That said, Ms. Wilson's confusing explanations of therapy dogs and service dogs further contributes to the public's confusion. Chance, as described, should be labeled an emotional support dog who also did therapy work. And he did his jobs SO well!
My thanks to Susan Wilson, whose books about how dogs can heal human souls are beautifully written.
