Show Description:


“Pit Bulls and Parolees” follows the work of Tia Torres, a renowned trainer of pit bull terriers and a founder of the Villalobos Rescue Center. The rehabilitation and placement center houses hundreds of abused and abandoned dogs of all breeds, and the center has a crew of paroled felons who help Torres and her daughters Tania and Mariah care for the animals. It is a chance at redemption for both man and man’s best friend.


My Review:


“My mission is to rescue, my dream is one day I won’t have to.” Tia Torres’ most known quote. Without watching this show, you would think that she is a crazy person having Pit bulls and parolees all together. The truth is that Tia is a role model for us all. She gives jobs to those who can’t find them, she rehabilitates ex-cons and turns them into model citizens. She also rescues dogs, no matter the breed, and gets them a home. Watching how they work and fight to keep Villalobos alive is outstanding and moving. Tia Torres thinks of others before herself, and helps one-hundred and fifty percent of the time. Pit bulls & Parolees shows Tia’s kindness and the love of her family, friends, and dogs. This is a truly moving, incredible, outstanding show, and you are missing out if you don’t watch it.
