Filled with inspiring stories and photographs, this heartfelt tribute to the pit bull celebrates one of Americaís most popular yet misunderstood dogs.

Perhaps more than any other breed, the pit bull has been dogged by negative stereotypes. In truth, pit bulls are innately wonderful family pets, as capable of love and good deeds as any other type of dog. Setting the record straight, Ken Foster sings the praises of pit bulls in Iím a Good Dog, a gorgeously illustrated, tenderly written tribute to this most misunderstood of canines.

Founder of the Sula Foundation, which promotes responsible pit bull ownership in New Orleans, and the author of two acclaimed books about abandoned dogs, Foster has made it his mission to bring overlooked canines into the limelight. Iím a Good Dog traces the fascinating history of this particularly maligned breed. A century ago, the pit bull was considered a family dog, featured in family photos and trusted as loving companions for children. More recently, pit bulls have been portrayed by the media as stereotypes of everything they are not. Foster shatters that reputation through moving profiles of pit bulls that serve as therapy dogs, athletic heroes, search-and-rescue dogs, and educators, not to mention as loving pets. Foster also profiles many pit bull lovers, from Helen Keller and Dr. Seuss to actor Todd Cerveris, who took his pit bull on tour with him for the musical Spring Awakening.

Proving that thereís much to love and nothing to fear, Iím a Good Dog restores the pit bull to its rightful place as friend, family member, athlete and entertainer.

A writer and teacher, Ken Foster is the author of the bestseller The Dogs Who Found Me and its sequel, Dogs I Have Met. His collection of short stories, The Kind Iím Likely to Get, was a New York Times Notable Book. His work has been featured in Salon, Time Out New York, The New York Times Book Review, and other publications. He lives in New Orleans with his dogs Brando, Zephyr, Douglas, and Bananas.
