I love Pit Boss and was excited to get my hands on this book. It certainly didnt disappoint! Its so well written that it feels like Shorty is talking directly to the reader and it's more inspiring than I thought possible. I couldnt put it down and finished it in less than 24 hrs. A must read for any fan of Pit Boss, any one who loves dogs (no matter what the breed), and anyone who just plain loves a good old pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps type of story. Keep up the great work, Shorty!

This is a great book and if you don't even watch the show you can still enjoy this book. How one person can come through so much and use it for good. Again must read but just know once you start you are not going to put this book down. Make sure you don't have any plans because you wont make them. Read in two days.

I really loved this book. Shorty is such an amazing person and such an inspiration. We have a wonderful and loving pit that saved my daughters life. I thank God she found us when she needed a home. Keep up the great work Shorty!

Being an animal lover as well as doing animal rescues ,this book was so rewarding to read. This is a wonderful story and Shorty made the whole book interesting. What he does is so heart warming. I totally agree that humans are the reason this dog has gotten such a bad rap. I was bitten by a standard poodle that required a 10 day hospital stay and not one person in my subdivison said a word. God forbid it had of been a pit. Keep up the good work Shorty!!

Great book. Written from the heart of the life experiences(thus far) of Shorty. I wish I could meet him at the Pet Expo in Atlanta this weekend but I have family plans. Such an amazing story of a life, not without its many challenges, and overcoming them through years in the penal system and a change of heart. Book does contain some "colorful" language but if you have seen the show Pit Boss, it won't come as a complete shock; just part of Shorty's personality; loveable and surly at the same time. I feel like I know Shorty a bit better now than I did from just watching the show previously (my newly acquired knowledge of Shorty's earlier years adds depth to my understanding of the experiences that Shorty and his co-workers/employees go through together). He has found an amazing purpose in life and that surely is a tremendous thing. I wish he and his dogs all of the best on their journey together in life. Thanks Shorty for sharing!!

I am the hugest fan of pit boss. I am so happy that he rescues pit bulls. I hope that he does this for a long time.

I felt too much time was devoted to Shorty's time in prison, and not enough about his business and rescue. Ashley, Ron, and Seb were hardly mentioned. I think this book will mainly interest fans of the show, or possibly people that can relate to his time in prison. Fortunately, I just fall into the first category!

Shorty was very open. even though he did some pretty bad things, he was honest and told his story very well. When telling what he did, he also didn't brag. He truly was telling all to help other not do the same things, and to help the Pit Bulls.

Thoughly enjoyed reading about Shorty's life and his passion for the pit bulls! I purchased the book because I have great respect for what he has overcome in his life, his courage to fight for what he believes and of course his campaigning for all homeless animals.

I loved this book, really explains why Shorty is the way he is. Enjoyed the fact that it was written the way Shorty speaks. Hope people who read this understand that pitbulls are Not bad dogs there are only bad owners.

I love the show, Pit Boss, and I admire Shorty Rossi for trying to dispell so many misconceptions about such a beautiful breed. The book is insightful and I can tell it is written from the heart. I enjoyed the book and I highly recommend it.
