Deirdre 'Little Darling' Franklin founded the non-profit organisation Pinups for Pitbulls because she was tired of so-called rescues and shelters euthanising healthy, friendly and adoptable animals due to their alleged 'breed'. She created a calendar showcasing pinup girls and their beloved pitbulls, starting a revolution 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-colour volume. Featuring interviews and essays, as well as tips for new rescue owners.
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, North Carolina, with her husband Jeffrey and their three furry children: Baxter Bean, Zoe, and Lexi.
