There are books about rescue dogs, but their pre-rescue lives, often with harsh beginnings are never mentioned. All Bubbins ever wanted was some “Belly Rubbins,” but he grew up in a house where his owners were mean. But Bubbins the pit bull never gave up, in fact he always believed he would get a loving home. This book brings his journey to life and highlights the true unconditional loving nature of dogs, especially pit bulls, and the resilience they have to put their past behind them. Many of us have had the itch to help a dog in need at some point in our lives. By purchasing this book, 51% of profits go to charity, and you are helping to save future dogs, by educating future dog owners, the children.
We can spay, neuter, shelter, foster and adopt, but until we educate, it won't stop.

I originally heard this book being read by a little girl on instagram and loved it so much I ordered seven copies for my local libraries from Barnes and Noble. Being a previous Pit Bull hater I love this story. Two years ago my son mistakenly brought home a puppy from the pound that turned out to be 70% pit bull and I fell in love with her. Recently I began volunteering at a local no kill rescue and discovered all of the pitties I meet are wonderful, sweet, loving dogs. They just need the same from their owners.
As parents, raising our children to love and be kind is priority #1. Belly Rubbins gives us all the opportunity to share a real story with our youth about animal abuse and the opportunity we all have to make a difference by loving and caring about these sweet, adorable animals that are just looking for a home, a meal, and some belly rubbins!
By teaching children at a young age about rescuing a dog (instead of buying one), we can change the kill rate of America's dog shelters. A book like Bubbins shows kids in a positive, easy-to-understand way how to be compassionate toward "man's best friend". An amazingly-written book; should be a staple in every elementary school's library.
