Saved from a suspicious breeder, Wallace was a dog with so much drive and intensity that he flustered the people and dogs around him to the point that the no-kill shelter where he ended up considered putting him down. But where some saw menace, Roo and Clara Yori saw misunderstanding. After a long fight they were allowed to take Wallace home.

Determined to give Wallace the focus and support he needed, the Yoris stumbled into the world of canine disc competitions—an unlikely place for a big-headed, lumbering pit bull to make his mark. But through the sheer will of his unbending desire, Wallace exceeded all expectations, and along the way he helped salvage the couple who had saved him and became a symbol of hope and potential in a larger struggle.

Not another dog memoir book!! Not another one!! This is by far the lamest genre of book. Every dog owning dork thinks their stupid dog warrants a book. It's pretty obvious Jim Gorant doesn't have children. The man is obsessed with pointless trivial dogs.

To the Lamo who posted the comment. What are you doing on this site if dog memoirs trouble you so much? "Wallace" was awesome, and I look forward to reading "The Lost Dogs".

I first stumbled across The Lost Dogs on a discount rack at a local bookstore. As a dog lover and animal shelter volunteer the gorgeus dog on the cover grabbed my eye. Then I saw that it was about the Bad Newz dogs and took it home.

It was a hard read for me, the details about the case were more than I could handle and I put the book down several times, but I appreciated the extensive research and the fictional narratives from the eyes of the little red dog.

I fell in love with the successes of the survivors and was elated to see that Gorant had penned another Pitt Bull memoir. I'm on page 140 of Wallace and I'll admit "The Underdog Who Conquered a Sport, Saved a Marriage, and championed Pit Bulls- One Flying Disc at a time" sounded a little hokey to me. I had researched Wallace online and already know the outcome, yet I've still been on the edge of my seat.

I see in my volunteer work all the time the breed discrimination. The shelter that I am with is a "no kill shelter" where Wallace would not have likely made the cut wither. To Roo, Clara and Jim, I thank you wholeheartedly for showing that a "pit bull nobody wanted" could be a champion.

To that guy complaining about dog memoirs, send me your address, I'll send you my copy and you can write a real review. Otherwise, keep your obnoxious comments to yourself.
