What a beautiful book, it made me laugh, cry and feel so many emotions.Our family like the authors have adopted two children both who suffered severely abusive backgrounds and have also had a dog in our family fortunatly our chocolate lab came to us as a 8 week old pup and knew nothing but love and security all his life,sadly we lost him last year due to a heart tumour but his presence is still felt in our home. Our children bonded with him as did the Levin boys with Oggy and sometimes only the dog would do for them as a source of comfort in times of stress in their lives so I know how important dogs are within family life.A lovely book adults and children will love too im sure highly recommended to all.

In the tradition of Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog and A Buffalo in the House: The True Story About a Man, an Animal, and the American West, two of my all-time favorites, Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love demonstrates how love transcends between an owner and his dog. Rescued by police after his face is mauled as a "bait dog," Oogy is adopted by the author Larry Levin and his family. Levin shares their experiences together with eloquence and genuine insight. As an owner of three rescued dogs, I highly recommend this book.

When I saw the photo of Oogy on the cover of this book I knew I had to find out his story. This is a great heart-warming book about a very loving family and an equally loving dog.
Great read for any dog lovers, thoroughly enjoyed it

The story of Oogy is both touching and inspirational. The author Laurence Levin bonds with this rescued bait dog to a very high intimate level, he and his wife and their adopted two sons warm to Oogy (arised name from ugly) the moment they saw him and agree to adopt him. The story tells of the close bond between author and dog and the hardships that Oogy has faced before coming to a loving caring home.

Oogy inspires people to keep their heads high even when times are tough and is a motivational book to keep moving forward. The dogs soft hearted nature is so sweet that even the exterior of this animal is beautiful =]

a wonderful read.

I am about a chapter from finishing this book - Loved it. I love Oogy, Larry, all the Levins', Diane and everyone that gave Oogy this wonderful LIFE!!! I was crying so much reading this on a plane - that the flight attendants got quite worried about me. I told them it had a happy ending (that would still make me cry). Larry "God Bless your Heart" - I cannot say that enough xx

"Oogy" was not a dog that most people would queue up to rehome in a Rescue Centre. Most people want pretty puppies or attractive and more cuddly looking dogs. "Oogy" did not fall into any of these categories. He was a puppy, but . . . . . . . .

Here in England, Pit Bull Terriers are a banned breed, but in the USA it is not the same in all States. "Oogy" appeared to be a Pit Bull puppy who had probably been used as bait in the training of fighting dogs. As the book wends on, it is more likely that "Oogy" is a Dogo Argentina, a breed that was bred to be pack hunters and guardians.

Apart from Chapter 3, which is a bit too long, self indulgent and boring which tells of the human family background, the rest of the book is about rescuing, training and loving "Oogy". His ups and downs as he learns to be a normal dog.

It is heart warming and very moving. An excellent book for any dog lover and in particular anyone who prefers rescue dogs, of which there are many looking for homes and who are so worth the extra work that is sometimes needed to integrate them into our homes.

The story of a dog that you will not forget, and which hopefully has you heading to a Rescue Shelter for your next pet.

I saw this book in a supermarket and had to have a look- based purely on the picture. i wanted to know what had happened to such a beautiful dog- who looks so much like my own! i didnt buy it then, but i couldnt stop thinking about it so i bought it and i am so glad that i did. The blurb says its about the angels who gave him his life back and his courageous battle to be himself and you know what -its true! this is an amazing story, and it makes me so glad that there are people out there who dont give up on the hopeless and who see with their hearts not just their eyes. The levins and oogy are an inspiration.
