From the Publisher:

The author of the New York Times bestseller The Lost Dogs shares the heartwarming tale of one plucky, unwanted pit bull who achieved international celebrity.|
Today, Wallace is a champion. But in the summer of 2005, he was living in a shelter, a refugee from a suspicious pit bull?breeding operation. Then Andrew ?Roo? Yori entered the picture. A scientist and shelter volunteer, Roo could tell immediately that Wallace was something special. While on his honeymoon, Roo learned that Wallace was about to be put down. Frantic?and even though they already had two dogs?Roo and his wife fought to keep Wallace alive until they could return home to adopt him.|
Once Wallace made it home, Roo knew the dog needed a mission, and serendipity led them to the world of competitive Frisbee dogs. It seemed like a terrible idea. Pit bulls are everything that most Frisbee dogs aren't: large and heavy with thick muscles that can make them look less than graceful. But that was fine with Roo?because part of his mission was to change people's minds about pit bulls. After overcoming everything from injuries to prejudice against the breed, the unlikely pair became World Champions.|
Movingly told by bestselling author Jim Gorant, Wallace will capture the hearts of animal lovers everywhere?and help rescue this popular breed's unfairly tarnished reputation.
