Dogs

When Oogy, a rare Dogo Argentine puppy, was four months old he was tied to a stake and used as bait for a pit bull. After the fight the left side of his face, including most of his ear, had been torn away and he had been bitten so hard that his jaw had been crushed. Rescued by the police he was taken to the Ardmore Animal Hospital in Philadelphia where a team of doctors operated for hours to save him. Miraculously, and against all odds, Oogy survived.

This is the story of Oogy's life and also of Laurence and Jennifer Levin who, after a chance encounter with a scarred and crippled yet joyful puppy, immediately adopted him, just as they had adopted their twin sons twelve years earlier. It is the story of the Ardmore Animal Hospital and its staff who saved Oogy and spent years operating on him, striving to improve his quality of life without accepting a penny. It is about family, and looking after each other, and the thousands and thousands of animals who are saved by people with a special place in their hearts for the unprotected, the defenceless and the abused.
