Pit Bulls & Parolees

Wednesdays From 21st April, 8.00pm

Two hundred pit bulls, six convicted felons on parole, and 10 dusty acres in the middle of nowhere. What do they have in common? It’s the crossroad for a chance at redemption, rehabilitation and rebirth for both man and man’s best friend. And, at the centre of it all is one extraordinary woman – Tia Maria Torres. Pit Bulls & Parolees follows the fiery drama and both dark 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. Tia, one of the country’s most renowned pit bull trainers and the founder of the Villalobos Rescue Centre, 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 wayward pasts.
