The subject of The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption by Jim Gorant is pretty apparent from the title. This book has been on my “to read” list for a while and I checked it out from the library to read on a plane ride (I’m going on a 4 day trip without my dog or my husband- yikes. I know I am going to come home to a messy house, I just hope it’s still standing by the time I return). Well, my trip started this morning and I may have read the entire book last night in one sitting. Oops. As you might expect, some parts are pretty difficult to read but overall it’s a story of hope. It is a quick read, hard to put down. Despite being clearly (and rightly) focused on the victims of this whole incident, the dogs, and their experiences, the author gives a pretty clear and unbiased account of what happened in the Vick case (at least I think it was). It has a lot of good information about pit bulls and the unique challenges of pit bull rescue. I was so touched by how resilient and loving so many of these dogs remained after all they had been through and I was also blown away by the efforts of all the people who had a hand in their rescue and rehabilitation. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone, dog lover or no, especially anyone who may have misconceptions about pit bulls.
