Season Premieres Saturday, October 30 at 10 PM
Two hundred pit bulls; six convicted felons on parole; and 10 dusty acres in the middle of nowhere. What’s the common factor? It’s the crossroad for a chance at redemption, rehabilitation and rebirth for both man and man’s best friend.
And, at the center of it all is one fiery, extraordinary woman — Tia Maria Torres — who devotes her days and nights to giving the underdogs of the canine and human worlds a second chance.
PIT BULLS & PAROLEES televises fiery drama and both serious and light moments where felons and ill-reputed dogs come together to rescue one another from their dim pasts to bring new meaning to life. Each week, Tia, one of the country’s most renowned pit bull trainers and the founder of the Villalobos Rescue Center, the largest pit bull rescue facility in the world, works against all odds to save pit bulls from dangerous and abusive situations and help repaint their reputation. In doing this, Tia pairs pit pulls with parolees in the belief that these delinquent canine-and-man teams can redeem themselves and strip one another of their ominous pasts.
Now in its second season, Tia and her cadre of parolees face a new set of challenges including pit bulls rescued from a dog fighting ring, the pending trial of Tia’s husband, A.J., and the return of one parolee who went back to jail during season one.
One thing that hasn’t changed is Villabolos’ core mission — to rescue pit bulls from dangerous and abusive situations and find them new, loving and lasting homes.
