Lost Dogs tells the stories of the dogs seized from Michael Vick's kennels. Through interviews with law enforcement agents, animal rescue organizations, and adopters, Jim Gorant takes the reader through the painstakingly slow process of rehabilitating these previously damaged and neglected dogs. Although the dogs and their rescuers are the focus of the book, Gorant does not hesitate to tell truths about Michael Vick that were largely burried by the mainstream media: that he personally participated in the murders of dogs that were not successful fighters, and that a polygraph shows he lied about the extent of his involvement. Vick may have served his time in prison, but this book shows that the time he served is miniscule compared to the thousands of hours many dedicated individuals had to serve to help his victims. This book is a must-read for animal lovers, and I challenge anyone who roots for the Eagles to read this and still be able to cheer on Michael Vick.
