In 2005, Deirdre “Little Darling” Franklin founded the non-profit organization, Pinups for Pitbulls, because she was tired of so-called rescues and shelters euthanizing healthy, friendly, and adoptable animals due to their alleged “breed.”
Drawing on her background in modeling, she created a calendar like no other―eye-catching pinup girls and their pit bull pups, in era-appropriate style―that has become something of a phenomenon in the world of animal advocacy.
Now, Pinups for Pitbulls has assembled the best of their calendars and many never-before-seen photographs into a lush full-color volume. Featuring essays and testimonials from former pinups and longtime volunteers as well as a complete history of the breed, helpful tips for new rescue owners, and a heartfelt homage to the dog who inspired it all―the late Carla Lou―Little Darling’s Pinups for Pitbulls is a must-have book for anyone who loves their four-legged friend. 130 color photographs
