“Yes, there have been a lot of dog memoirs lately, but there are several reasons why Oogy stands out from the pack. First, because Oogy is no ordinary dog story. As a puppy he was used as bait for fighting dogs, mangled, and left in a cage to die, but Oogy's good nature led him to be saved against the odds. Second, because the story is as much about the author and his family as it is about the dog, it offers fascinating insights into the human-animal bond and the way that rescue is as enriching to the rescuer as it is to the animal being rescued. Oogy is a heartening story and a terrific read.”
