Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love (Playaway Adult Nonfiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their ailing cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What began as a terrible day suddenly got brighter as the ugliest dog they had ever seen--one who was missing an ear and had half his face covered in scar tissue--bounded up to them. The dog, whom the family immediately took home and named "Oogy" (an affectionate derivative of "ugly"), had been tied to a stake and used as bait for fighting dogs when he was four months old. OOGY is the story of a dog who thinks he's a boy, of the men and women at the animal hopsital who were determined to rescue him even though he didn't seem to stand a chance, of why the Levins have to close the refrigerator door with a bungee cord, and how adopting Oogy brought the Levins (whose sons are themselves adopted) even closer together.
