Saving Audie: A Pit Bull Puppy Gets a Second Chance

Bloomsbury/Walker, 2011

When football hero Michael Vick’s dog-fighting operation was discovered, the public wanted to know what was going to happen to the dogs that were rescued. Up to then, the legal policy had been to keep the dogs until any trials were finished, then euthanize them. Because of public pressure and the determination of many special people, including Donna Reynolds and Tim Racer of the pitbull organization BADRAP, dogs rescued from fighting operations can be given a chance at normal lives.

“Saving Audie” tells the story of one of these “lucky” dogs.
