Dogfighting is such a cartoonishly evil activity that it’s hard to believe it still exists, but it does. Local pit bull Tyrion Pittister, named for Peter Dinklage’s Game of Thrones character, was rescued from dogfighting in 2014. (Fun fact: he also received a grant from the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.) He was left with permanent scars but now lives a happy and healthy life, educating humans about the dangers of animal abuse. Along with help from his owner Laurie Holding, Tyrion released Tyrion’s Tale, a children’s book about his before and after rescue. Meet and learn more about Tyrion at a “pawtographing” session at Penguin Bookshop.
