Summary
Today Wallace is a Frisbee 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 immediately see that Wallace was something special, and when Roo learned that Wallace was about to be put down, he and his wife fought to keep Wallace alive until they could adopt him, even though they already had two dogs
Summary
