Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, the New York Times-bestselling story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted.

In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their terminally ill cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What would begin 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 — ran up to them and captured their hearts. The dog had been used as bait for fighting dogs when he was just a few months old. He had been thrown in a cage and left to die until the police rescued him and the staff at Ardmore Animal Hospital saved his life. The Levins, whose sons are themselves adopted, were unable to resist Oogy's charms.

Heartwarming and redemptive, Oogy is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him Oogy (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own.

About the Author

Larry Levin was born in Philadelphia, PA, and lived in various parts of the country, including New England and the Pacific Northwest, before returning to the Philadelphia area. He has been a lawyer for over thirty years, and is now in private practice. In 1982, he married Jennifer Berke, an attorney. Their sons, Noah and Dan, were born in 1990. This is Larry's first book.

Oogy was a beautiful story. I laughed, I cried, I got mad but in the end all I could do was smile. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves dogs. I would love to save all of them. I was happy to read how the Levin family took a chance and gave Oogy a wonderful loving pampered life that he deserved.
