Melissa truly captures the really essence of this breed. This book portrays the fun, loving life, goofy yet stoic side of pit bull type dogs. Their stories will make you laugh and cry at the same time. An incredible book any dog lover will enjoy and be proud to display.

Melissa McDaniels' photo book of pitbull and pitbull type dogs is gorgeous! Each dog has its own story, but the photos are what make the book. She is an amazing photographer, shooting pitbulls and pitbull mix dogs against a plain background to emphasize their musculature, beautiful warm eyes and insanely long tongues. One of our secretaries was convinced that pitbulls are ugly, and after seeing the book, she recanted ;-) The dogs are treated as individuals, and each one has its natural personality showcased. Even if you're not a pittie fan, this is a great coffee table book and a guaranteed conversation starter. On a more serious note, Melissa photographed some of the Michael Vick dogs who have been rehabilitated; their stories are also included, as are several others who were rescued from bad situations to find happiness as couch potatoes, family pets and plain old dogs. Quality printing and reproduction, which is nice because it's a book that will get thumbed through a lot. She is also the author/photographer of a book on deaf dogs that is equally impressive.

Melissa's photographs truly capture the loving and playful nature of these dogs. The loyalty and devotion these dogs give to their owners is a joy to behold. The stories told in the book are a tribute to the breed. A truly wonderful book!!!

Melissa did it again. She not only takes the most wonderful pictures that capture the true essence of each dog. She tells their story in a way that is captivating. This really is a beautiful tribute to the most misunderstood and misrepresented breed of dogs.

This book captures your heart with each story of where these pit bulls have come from to where they are now. Truly heartfelt. Melissa is so genuine in each portrayl and the homage given to the breed and everyone who is a proponate to fighting BSL (Breed Specific Legislation)is amazing. Melissa you truly out did yourself on this book. Love it!

This book is a beautiful collection of Pittie photos that truly capture the nature of a "Pit Bull". The best thing about a "pit bull" is it's smile and page after page, Melissa captures these smiles in pictures! The stories behind the pictures are just as compelling. It is a great book for anyone who loves dogs and definitely a must-have for anyone who loves bully dogs!

This book does not quit! I expected to enjoy this book based solely on the topic. Instead I've been pleasantly surprised by all aspects of this publication. My most pleasant surprise was the large quantity of dogs displayed and the overall quality. The pictures are sweet, funny, well composed and detailed. The stories are consistent, well written and informative. From street dogs to winning sport dogs all have been represented beautifully and respectfully. You will not be disappointed with your purchase.
