Pit bulls always seem to get a bad name. But Sweety the pit bull is a good dog who is friendly and loving. When author Doreen D. Diana and her family adopt her, they find she is a very special dog.
It takes some time and effort for Sweety to get used to her new home and to new ways of doing things. She has to figure out how to go up and down steps and how to go potty outside. When Sweety visits the dog park, she soon gets to know other dogs, but she also discovers the importance of walking away from bullies. She meets Bunny, a wild rabbit who lives in the backyard of her house, and has an encounter with an orange-and-white kitten who comes to visit. All the while, Sweety and her family learn important and valuable lessons.
This true story for children describes the first few weeks that Sweety the pit bull spends with her new family and outlines the efforts it takes to adopt a new dog.
