Description

From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Lost Dogs , a heartwarming tale of the plucky, unwanted pit bull that achieved international celebrity. Today, Wallace is a champion. But in the summer of 2005, he was living in a shelter-a refugee with a suspicious background. Then Andrew 'Roo' Yori entered the picture. Roo was a shelter volunteer and a scientist at the local Mayo Clinic, and he knew immediately that Wallace was something special. Wallace had developed a reputation as a 'problem' dog at the shelter and had been labelled unadoptable and untrainable, but Roo saw his potential. And not a moment too soon. While on his honeymoon, Roo learned that Wallace scheduled to be put down. Frantic - and even though they already had two dogs - Roo and his wife, Clara, fought to keep Wallace alive until they could return home to adopt him. Once Wallace made it home, Roo knew the dog needed a mission, and serendipity led them to the world of competitive Frisbee dogs. On the surface, it was a terrible idea. Pit bulls are everything that most disc dogs aren't- large and heavy with thick muscles that can make them look less than graceful. But that didn't bother Roo because he knew that Wallace had a talent, and he made it their mission to change people's minds about pit bulls. Conquering obstacles both at home and on the pitch and overcoming everything from injuries to prejudice against the breed, the unlikely pair found success beyond anyone's imagination. Wallace is a moving story that will capture the hearts of dog lovers and help restore this popular breed's unfairly tarnished reputation.
