Tia Torres has devoted her life to shattering the stereotype that pit bulls are dangerous, vicious animals prone to bad behavior. Through her hit show Pit Bulls & Parolees she has shown the world that these wonderful animals have nothing but love to give. As the owner of the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, the largest pit bull rescue facility in the United States, Tia knows firsthand that pit bulls’ easygoing, adaptable, and vulnerable nature allows them to be used and abused, giving them a bad rep.

In Underdogs, she combines never-before-told rescue tales with the most popular stories featured on Pit Bulls & Parolees, introducing such amazing, affectionate dogs as Marvin, Puma, and Junkyard Joe, who overcame abuse, trauma, and neglect to become forgiving and adoring friends to their new owners.
