A century ago, pit bulls were regarded as all-American family dogs, championed by enthusiast owners such as Heller Keller and, later, Dr. Seuss. Ken Foster, author of I'm a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America's Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet (Viking Studio), offers a corrective to the maligning of a breed that he portrays as athletic, loving and brave. "A beautiful book about some of the most of the most beautiful and big-hearted dogs in the worlddogs who've been misunderstood and discriminated against for far too long. Ken Foster and his rescue work are a gift to animals and people alike. Everyone should read I'm a Good Dog to learn the truth about pit bulls and celebrate them." - Rebecca Skloot. Ken Foster, founder of the New Orleans Sula Foundation, also wrote The Dogs Who Found Me and Dogs I Have Met.
