Pit Pulls and Ex-Cons, Rescuing One Another One Day at a Time

The cable show "Pit Bulls and Parolees" continues to amaze. It's like an Outward Bound type of a program, both for ex-cons and pit bulls themselves. Both camps tend to get a bad rap, and Tia and her family (their patriarch is currently serving time) built a new, rehabilitative placement program for the dogs, all the while creating a job opportunity only for the most earnest and hard-working ex-cons she finds.

In that sense, the parolees are "properly placed in a loving home, as well."

The discovery of the show was new until finding this article, and I'm quite impressed with the whole setup. It restores your faith in humanity and I had no idea there are so many loving owners just waiting to take care of a pit bull. No matter how aggressive they are, they, too, are helpless animals and it's up to animal caretakers (rarely do I use the term "owners") to make sure they are treated optimally and not used like a commodity, money-making object, or any other sort of abusive idea.

Animals need love, plain and simple, and parolees, who are only human, need the same kind of love. If a person or animal is just plain willfully aggressive and ornery, well that's a separate matter. But if a spirit truly wants to reform and heal, it's recommended they give Tia a call, or make sure the dog in question finds their way to her. Check it out for yourself:

Withe out her neither would stand a chance

This show is amazing. Tia's love and understanding for both the breed and parolees is wonderful. Not everyone will take a chance on either and she should be commended. With out her some of these beautiful dog would have been put to death....

Great shows

Even if these shows don't make it far, they will have planted a seed subliminally if not somewhere in a persons heart.

Pit Bulls and Parolees
by: Gale

I had been hearing about the debut for Pit Bulls and Parolees for awhile. But, wasn't sure where to find it on cable. Then my husband found it on Animal Planet while channel surfing one evening. I'm usually not a big fan of "reality TV", but we watched 3 back to back episodes in one sitting. There is also another show on AP about pit bulls called "Pit Boss". It will be interesting to see what if any impact these kind of shows will have on public opinion about pit bulls.
