"A breed of satin and steel. Pit bulls are a mixture of softness andstrength, an uncanny canine combination of fun, foolishness,andserious business, all wrapped up in love."

Demo the Junkyard Dog
"Demo: The Story of a Junkyard Dog" is a green-themed graphic fable that champions the spirit of today's underdog. By gently lampooning both society's 'dangerous' dog dilemma and its throwaway culture, "Demo" asks readers to reconsider the possessions and animals they might otherwise dismiss as disposable.
Developed for a broad age range, "Demo" is a 'big' book for kids and a kids book for grown-ups that speaks to the underdog lover in everyone.
That’s right! For over fifteen years, Demo’s been fearlessly spreading love and slobber to people everywhere. In fact, he’s licked more faces and made more friends than probably any other dog in history!
Rescued from an abandoned scrap yard by author Jon Bozak over a dozen years ago, Demo’s life has been a series of close calls and dramatic twists. Throughout it all, Demo’s unflappably positive attitude guides him through any situation, no matter how bad -- which makes him such a lovable and inspiring member of the household.
Demo’s not the only dog in the world that exhibits such “joie de vie”. That’s a quality all dogs share, especially rescued dogs, and there are tons of them out there ready for responsible homes. They’re at shelters and rescues all over the country, and each and every one of them, from PIt Bulls to Pomeranians, are waiting, wiggling and wagging in the hopes of sharing some love and slobber with a new friend.
So, if your family is thinking of adding a dog, look into rescuing one. You never know, you might get to share your home with a big, lovable galoot like Demo. Just think of the stories you’ll have to tell.
