Hello, Sewickley!

Have you heard of Tyrion Pittister? His story is hard to forget.

The pit bull is a survivor of a dogfighting ring, which is why his face and body are so badly scarred. Hello Bully, a Pittsburgh nonprofit, brought him here from Georgia, and today, he’s enjoying life in Sewickley.

Laurie Holding wrote about her beloved dog in “Tyrion’s Tale” and the two will be on hand to share his story at Penguin Bookshop today from 6 to 7 p.m.

The children’s book details Tyrion’s life since his rescue from a world of neglect and abuse. His story is pointed toward children, so he doesn’t go into detail about his life before his rescue, but instead concentrates on how life can be good no matter what you look like.
