Giveaway: Oogy by Larry Levin

In the bestselling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted.

In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their terminally ill cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What would begin as a terrible day suddenly got brighter as the ugliest dog they had ever seen--one who was missing an ear and had half his face covered in scar tissue--ran up to them and captured their hearts. The dog had been used as bait for fighting dogs when he was just a few months old. He had been thrown in a cage and left to die until the police rescued him and the staff at Ardmore Animal Hospital saved his life. The Levins, whose sons are themselves adopted, were unable to resist Oogy's charms, and decided to take him home.

Heartwarming and redemptive, OOGY is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him "Oogy" (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own.

I'm a google friend connect follower! This book sounds so touching, I'm a huge supporter of rescue animals and I have a dog who I adopted from a humane society (she was a rescue from a puppy mill) so this really touches my heart! Thanks for the chance into this giveaway.

I'm pretty sure I'm a google friend connect.

regarding Oogy - sometimes people suck so bad (the dog fighters) and then there's the other side of that - wonderful people who take in sons and dogs like Oogy. Thank god for people like them.
