About this item

The beloved dog rescue advocate and star of Animal Planet’s hit show Pit Bulls & Parolees chronicles her life in this heartwarming memoir told through the stories of eleven of her best-loved dogs, capturing the spirit and heart of these beautiful, intelligent, and loving canines.

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 My Life Among the Underdogs, she combines never-before-told rescue tales with select stories from Pitbulls & Parolees, introducing such amazing, affectionate dogs as Tatanka, Joe, LA, Duke, Moose, Monster, Lucky, Bluie, and Taz, who overcame abuse, trauma, and neglect to become forgiving and adoring friends and helpmates. A sweet and stirring gallery of unforgettable canines, My Life Among the Underdogs captures the hearts of dog lovers everywhere and is a testament to the loyalty, love, and devotion these dogs have to offer—if they’re only given the chance.
