Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love (Laurence Levin)
In 2002, Larry Levin and his twelve-year-old sons, Dan and Noah, took their elderly cat to the vet to be put to sleep. Yet what began as one of the family's saddest days took a sharp turn for the better when the oddest-looking dog they had ever seen bounded across the waiting room into their arms. The friendly white puppy was missing an ear and half of his face was covered in scar tissue, but Larry and his boys soon discovered the truth - the puppy had been used as bait in a dogfight and left for dead, and it was only the tireless work of their local veterinary staff that had saved him.
The Levins accepted the young pup as one of their own from the moment they met him and from that point on he marked himself indelibly on their lives, healing old wounds and showing the boys, themselves adopted as infants, that unbreakable bonds can be formed in all kinds of families.
