This review is from: I'm a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America's Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet (Paperback)
This was a great book for pit bull lovers, but also talks about what it means to love dogs of all breeds. There are touching profiles of rescues, failed fosters, canine helpers/workers, and dogs through history. The book is a quick read but I can see myself going back to it in the future just to share some of the stories and photos with friends. I loved that the author addressed BSL. Probably my only issue with the book was that I got the impression that the author was saying that things are turning around for bully breeds, and while I do feel that is partially true, it is my opinion that there is still so far to go that it seems a little to early to make that claim. However, the whole book has an encouraging and thoughtful tone of hope, so it really does align with that spirit. I also wish that the call out story pages would have come at a logical place in the reading order rather than in the middle of another story, but that was also a minor issue. This is a lovely book, and my doggies probably thought so too because they snuggled up next to me while I read it. My own pit pup was adopted from the humane society where they had labeled him a "shepherd mix" so he could be adopted in our area that has BSL and breed bans in place (the author actually mentions this practice of identifying a pit mix as a lab or shepherd mix to save more lives and allow placements). I will admit that before owning my dog, I actually worried about what I had heard about owning a pit bull, but my dog taught me that none of thise stereotypes were true. My pit is a big love who thinks he is a lapdog, and he loves my other two dogs and even the stray cats! He is loyal, playful, and a total bed hog. This book definetely represented what I feel about my dog, and how I wish others would view him.

BSL? You used the acronym at least twice - what does it mean?
