The title of our reality series through Discovery Network/Animal Planet. Like the title, the show is based around the program that my husband and I started. With each episode teaching compassion and respect for life, each day is a struggle for the ex-felons to find that path to redemption. With the most controversial dog in the world assisting in the process of rehabilitation, it makes me think...
are we a walking target? Shame on the district attorney for turning a blind eye.


  1. This is a real reality show. It doesn't look like it's scripted much. The narration is kept to a minimum. The characters do the talking. It's hard to watch this show and not have your heart strings tugged. I have no experience with Pits, but they seem to be really people friendly. A neutered small female seems like the perfect pet.

  2. I find this to be deplorable! Here we have Michael Vick, who is playing football and making millions after the HORRIFYING things he did. Then you have AJ who started an amazing organization and not only turned his life around, but turned others around as well. In addition, his organization has saved countless dogs! Now he is looking at many years in prison. There is something truly wrong with this country!

  3. doglvr, didn't she say in that show that everybody deserves a 2nd chance? how many dogs has #7 killed since he got caught? he even spends time with children to tell them his story in hopes that someone doesn't make the same mistakes he did. it looks as though #7 is truly rehabilitated and if you can't eventually forgive him, then i don't think you know the true meaning of this show.

  4. Tia,
    Having worked for attorneys and seeing the large amount of ego they carry around like a medal, it wouldn't surprise me if this attorney is using this case as a means to further that ego (not to mention his "career").
    However, I think that God works in mysterious ways and I have seen it with my own eyes. On your show I see miracles in every episode, and what I know to be true is people get their up-comings - one way or another. I am not a religious person but I do believe in spirituality and I do believe in a greater good. The legal system often times never quite carries out the greater good, but when it does, it is swift. My hope is that the truth comes to light. You and yours are in my prayers.

  5. I Hope this helps you guys ...You deserve it I got excited and thought of you guys please keep us updated ..................Proposition 36, a Change in the "Three Strikes Law" Initiative, was on the November 6, 2012 ballot as an initiated state statute, where it was approved.[1]
    Proposition 36 modifies elements of California's "Three Strikes" Law, which was approved by the state's voters in 1994. In 2004, voters rejected Proposition 66, which like the 2012 measure was an attempt to change some aspects of the original "Three Strikes" Law.
    Proposition 36:
    Revises the three strikes law to impose life sentence only when the new felony conviction is "serious or violent".
    Authorizes re-sentencing for offenders currently serving life sentences if their third strike conviction was not serious or violent and if the judge determines that the re-sentence does not pose unreasonable risk to public safety.

  6. The only thing is that the changes in the law doesn't effect convicts like AJ because he made a deal with the court.{although they pushed and made him feel like he had no choice,that he would get life otherwise.} It took me a year,$10.000,and a lot of work to file and get an appeal for someone.Oh yeah,and some luck from a lot of people.Good Luck,Tia

  7. I am female convicted felon. I hope one to see a female payrolls. I have rescued several pits.i have 2 now. God bless Tia for her work. She fights for the ones forgotten. People should research the true history of the pit. The things they would learn. My prayers are truly with u and ur family ms. Tia

  8. Sorry about miss spelling on above post my phone does that meant to say parollees
