Pit Bulls and Parolees

Animal Planet 2009

Pit bulls are eager to please, faithful and enthusiastic friends and pleasant with children according to credible canine organizations. Really, it's true. Yet, the public largely associates these dogs with fear, danger and unyielding aggression toward people. Pit bulls actually were once ranked among American's top five favorite pets and also known as the "nanny dog" for their gentleness with children. But they have fallen from grace. Now often associated with gang members, dog fighting and attacks. That's about to change. Animal Planet introduces you to this dog's greatest ally, and she's not a man - she's a fiery red-headed leading lady, and she's determined to end the needless hostility toward pit bulls. Meet Tia Maria Torres - 49-year-old mother, top pit bull trainer and founder and owner of Villalobos Rescue Center - the country's largest rescue facility for pit bulls.

Must watch tv! I have to admit, prior to watching this show I was one of the ignoramuses who thought all Pitbulls were bad and all convicts should just stay in prison (or that they didn't deserve any rights while they were incarcerated)... man was I wrong. When I first watched this show I remember stereotyping the people/animals right away, Tia appeared to be one of those "biker chicks" who probably shouldn't have custody of her kids, who no doubt had some drugs on the property and/or illegal activity going on but as I watched, admittedly mostly to see her fail and my preconceived notions of her (Tia), her children, the parolees and the Pitbulls come true, I was left eating crow. The show would peek my interest in not only educating myself more about Pitbulls but about parolees and the American justice system (wow, how screwed up that is!), it would shine a light on the medias fascination, and misrepresentation, of not only Pitbulls but ex-cons as well. Like so many things the media saw ratings in it's stories about these big bad dogs and ran with it, almost single-handedly turning peoples perceptions of the breed against them despite any evidence they are any worse than any other breed of dog. I already knew the media liked to do things like glorify shark attacks for ratings and ignore things like the fact more people die each year from cows then sharks but they never reported on that and here I was faced with the awful truth that I had been misguided... again! As the years, and seasons, have gone on I have done a complete 180, I don't see the Pitbulls as the problem but simply those who own them, as a matter of fact I now consider Pitbulls to be among the most loyal and family friendly among breeds, I have educated myself about the problems with the American prison systems and mistreatment of convicts resulting in higher rates on re-offending and have seen what other countries are doing about it that has drastically reduced the recidivism of ex-cons not only reducing the stress on families but adding to the contributions made by these people in their communities. Tia and her daughters, although inked and tough looking on first appearances, are simply strong willed women with hearts if gold. Not an episode goes by that doesn't tear at the heart strings, makes me wonder how people can be so cruel, or how so many dogs can remain unadopted? Where would this world be without people like Tia? or shows like Pitbulls &amp; Parolees.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
