Summary
How did a former mob enforcer, ex-convict, suicidal junkie and alcoholic become a loving and passionate animal rescuer? James "Head" Guiliani once served as an enforcer and confidante of the Gotti regime until he was arrested and jailed on a weapons possession charge. After his release from prison, James fell back into alcohol and drug addiction. When he hit rock bottom, a chance meeting with Lena Perelli, now James's wife, brought him back from the brink of suicide. And when the couple rescued an abandoned and abused Shih Tzu--lovingly named Bruno--James's newfound love for the dog turned his life around. He would dedicate his life to the protection and care of stray animals.Dogfella recounts the story of James's life from his religious upbringing in a blue-collar Queens neighborhood, to his involvement in street gangs and the infamous Gambino crime family, his encarceration, encarceration, and eventual salvation. James's personal story is interwoven with scenes of his work for the Kenos Animal Rescue Shelter: from saving pit bulls from a dog fighting ring to driving through six-foot snowdrifts to reach 200 cats stranded at a Long Island sanctuary
