Summary:
"In 2005, Deirdre "Little Darling" Franklin founded the non-profit organization Pinups for Pitbulls because she was tired of so-called rescues and shelters euthanizing healthy, friendly, and adoptable animals due to their alleged "breed." Drawing on her background in modeling she created a calendar like no other--eye-catching pinup girls and their pit bull pups, in era-appropriate style--that has become something of a phenomenon in the world of animal advocacy. Now, Pinups for Pitbulls has assembled the best of their calendars and many never-before-seen photographs into a lush full-color volume. Featuring essays and testimonials from former pinups and longtime volunteers as well as a complete history of the breed, helpful tips for new rescue owners, and a heartfelt homage to the dog who inspired it all--the late Carla Lou--Pinups for Pitbulls is a must-have book for anyone who loves their four-legged friend"--
