Luigi Francis Shorty Rossi, the tough-talking, fedora-wearing star of Animal Planetís hit show Pit Boss, may stand only four feet tall but that hasnít stopped him from living large, becoming a successful businessman and an outspoken advocate for pit bulls, the most misunderstood breed of dog in the world.

A third generation dwarf, ex-gang member, and ex-con, Shorty knows what itís like to be misunderstood and in this candid memoir, he shares his personal story for the first time. No one expected Shorty to live let alone succeed, and yet he has, overcoming every challenge, from an abusive home to the violent streets and gangs of South Central LA, to the notorious cell blocks of Folsom Prison where he was imprisoned for attempted murder.

After 10 years, 10 months, and 10 days behind bars, Shorty gained his freedom and the chance to put his entrepreneurial and negotiation skills to the test. He cut the ribbon on his own business, Shortywood, with three goals: to turn his life around, act as a talent agent for little people and establish and fund charities that advocate for, rescue and place abandoned or abused pit bulls into safe homes. In the process, he became a reality-TV star. Now, with Hercules, his rescued pit bull and newly trained service dog by his side, Shorty continues to save pits from the basements and backyards of breeders and abusers while taking on new and even bigger challenges. And nothing is gonna stand in his way.
Shorty Rossi is four feet tallóand rising.

Luigi Francis Shorty Rossi is the star of Animal Planetís Pit Boss, the owner of Shortywood Entertainment, a talent management company for Little People, and the owner of Shortyís Pit Bull Rescue.

  • Good book especially if you are a fan

    I purchased the book as a gift for my husband who is a big fan of Shorty's. Whether you love him or hate him you have got to admire the guts he has and the rescue efforts he has on behalf of pit bulls. It is an interesting and easy read and gives you a hint of what it must be like to have to battle back from quite a bit of adversity.
