Beautiful photography and poignant stories that individualize these dogs while also illustrating the too-common cruelties perpetrated on an entire group of dogs who look a certain way, solely because they look a certain way.

The single thing these dogs have in common besides their looks and, among this group, the fact that they are all rescues from pretty horrific circumstances, is that when given safety, security, kindness and love, these dogs *all* have the capacity to overcome their past and become loving family pets.

The text is repetitive in places and could have been organized better (e.g., I would have liked to see dogs in the same home presented together). But as a coffee-table book, a myth-busting conversation starter, and a tool for anti-BSL (breed specific legislation) activists, it can't be beat.
