There is a common misconception in our society that pitbulls are mean and vicious dogs. People have this idea that they are far too dangerous to care for and much too big of a responsibility.
Anyone who has spent any amount of time around pitbulls knows that this just isn’t true. The fact is that the way a pitbull behaves has far more to do with how it is raised than with the type of dog that it is. These are dogs that are just as capable of being a loyal and adorable family pet as any other dog.
Thankfully, Tia Torres is on a mission to change this negative stereotype with the Villalobos Rescue Center. Tia’s mission is to help find pit bulls homes and better training through any avenue she can find. She has even partnered with Animal Planet to create a show where newly released paroles are given the responsibility of watching after their own pit bull, giving both the pit bulls and the paroles a second chance for a better life.
In this video, Tia is being interviewed on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Suddenly, a pit bull is brought out on stage. What happened next surprised everyone.
