I highly recommend Oogy for its insights into dog fighting and the ramifications, as well as its sweetness of a one loving family.
There is no comparison. Oogy stands alone. I have never read a book so informative but filled with unconditional love.
There were many amazing scenes I enjoyed but one of the most memorable is after being the detailed description of the bond the owner and Oogy shared was something I could identify with. Visualizing them stretching out on the couch enjoying their time together was something I could relate to. As he stands to go into the kitchen so does Oogy, so would my lab. The great length in which they go to give you such vivid details in the life of Oogy made me feel as if I was right there.
The same one you already have. Oogy, the dog only a family could love.
Add a little more about oogy

Yes, at the time I listened to this we were traveling and it was so relaxing to ride alongand look at the scenery and listen to a good story.
I also listened to Huck and not that it was sad just that it was a great animal story.
no, I havev't
Oogy was but not Huck
Nothing more than I love animal stories.
Sweet story of a battered dog and a loving family who took him in. Used as a bait dog due to his loveable nature, Oogy was left to die. A determined vet and a caring family has made this special dog's life wonderful. The story also gives ia small glimpse into the world of dogfighting. Dogs are housed at abandoned properties and rotated so they cannot be linked to any owner. People who fight dogs will look for bait dogs on Craig's list or other forms of advertising, targeting the "free to good home" listings. ( I found this enlightening.)
Oogy, however is not a sad story but one of overcoming obstacles and rescue. I would thoroughly recommend this tale (no pun) if you need encouragement.
This is one of the best pet stories I have listened to. It is triumph orver cruelity, acceptance and even love for a family that adopts childeren and pets. I was glad that it had such a positive ending because it was not sad. I laughed and I cried, but ultimately I wish I could have gotten to know Oogy.
This book is for dog lovers. It kind of got monotonous after a while. I thought he would go into the drama more of how the dog got disfigured, but it was a story of how he cared for a dog. Albiet, it was more caring than the average dog, it still didn't have much emotional attachment or character building. The story lacked depth
