I don't know about the place, but I really like the show. I think because of the show they might be kind of full with volunteers. On last night's show she said something about a "volunteer day", I think maybe people can only come in on a certain day of the week, after all, it's the parolees job to take care of the dogs. If volunteers do it all they are out of work.


The thing I love about them is that they are realistic about pit bulls. They know their propensity for dog aggression, and do get very nervous whenever an adopter has a small dog. But they don't write off every adopter that has another dog, they just know they have to be careful in matching them with the right dog. They show people that a dog aggressive dog can be an absolute love with people.

You know I kind of like the woman, and I think she is trying and doing fairly well with what she has available, but she leans into sort of 'warehousing' dogs. I don't know the day-to-day of what she does with the dogs though so it's hard to say.

I just got into the show a couple weeks ago, and I really enjoy it. She is doing good work for both the people and the dogs in her care, and seems to have a really realistic mentality about it all.

I like the show I know some think she's in over her head, etc, but I really like them. I think they are realistic about the breed, very knowledgeable, yet open. They won't just turn a home down just because other rescues might.

But yeah, I enjoy the program.

I've questioned the bit on warehousing dogs, too. But from what I can tell, the parolees get their own group of dogs to feed, water, care for and exercise. So they are all being looked after, unlike other warehousing situations where they just sit in their runs all day long.

I do like that they are realistic. They don't write off every person they see, but they do try hard to find that perfect dog for the situation.

I used to watch the show a lot, but I haven't since we canceled cable.
