Product Description

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—Pinups for Pitbulls is a must-have book for anyone who loves their four-legged friend.

Praise for Pinups for Pitbulls:

“Beautiful and quirky in their high heels, red lipstick, and, in many cases, elaborate tattoos, these women are more than eye candy.” —Associated Press

“Thank God we have people like Little Darling.” —Shorty Rossi, star of Animal Planet’s Pit Boss

Deirdre “Little Darling” Franklin is the founder, President, and soul behind Pinups for Pitbulls. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy from Drexel University, where she specialized in breed-specific legislation. She lives in Asheville, NC with her husband Jeffrey and their three furry children: Baxter Bean, Zoe, and Lexi.
