Eddie Justice: The One-Eyed Compassionate Pit Bull

posted by Dr. Arnie Kozak

fd348f7815d32bb4663e0f6b9aa31a53My friend Eddie Justice, the one-eyed pit bull has just published his first book: Eddie’s Tale’s: Stories of Animal Love and Rescue. Eddie is the spokesperson for Justice for Dogs (JFD), a dog rescue organization here in Vermont.

My beloved Sumi came from JFD and the tale of her rescue is one of the featured stories in Eddie’s Tales. You can read about how Sumi was found abandoned  and scared on the side of the road, hit by a car and then wound up at Eddie’s house where he greeted her with playfulness, non-judgment, and kindness. She then met Harley and fell in love and the rest, as they say, is history.

Eddie’s Tales is written for kids and adults alike. It’s for anyone was has ever adopted a canine friend or thought of doing so.

Eddie tells a good a good tale or “tail” as the case may be, especially for this first time trying to write.

Eddie is also selfless, generous, and commited to helping others. All proceeds from his book go to supporting animal rescue efforts in Vermont.

You can order your copy directly from Eddie Justice, or if you insist, on Amazon. You can help more animals by ordering directly through EddieJustice.com.

I was very touched by these tails of rescue and love, my own bias notwithstanding. The book is lovingly illustrated by the talented Katherine Washburn.

    Good Morning Arnie,
    I was just telling a friend about the book and how my friend Harley found his Sumi Love. This was the first link I found to send to her. The ladies at Dartmouth Library are planning on ordering the book for their grandkids. Thanks for posting this.
