Today, Wallace is a champion. But in the summer of 2005, he was living in a shelter, a refugee from a suspicious pit bull–breeding operation. Then Andrew “Roo” Yori entered the picture. A scientist and shelter volunteer, Roo could tell immediately that Wallace was something special.
We are joined in studio by Cydney Cross (President of Out of the Pits, Inc.), Helene Goldberger (board member), and Helen of Troy - a rescue-turned-therapy dog, to discuss the work that Out of the Pits does to save pitbulls and help their public image. The Artful Canine Show at the Way Out Gallery is a fundraiser for Out of the Pits - with artwork from Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Sue Coe, Dorothy McDevitt, and many others.
