    I have a male that looks exactly like her. He is the sweetest boy. It’s too bad I live in Fl. Well it might be a good thing or my house would be over run by the big marshmellows. It is horrible how the media never runs stories about the ankle bitters that are more likely to attack someone than a well loved Pit. Both of my huge scary looking babies run from the ankle bitter next door but will beg any one unmercifully for ear scratches. My mother who is afraid of Pits keeps trying to steal one of my dogs. I told her “see if you treat them right and give them love they are the best.” I watch your show and I just want to say you guys are the best and don’t let the ignorant get you down.

    I can’t get over how much this little lady looks like our puppy boy, Jager (right down to the white tip on her tail). She looks like she could be his litter-mate. We use to live in the Rosamond, CA area… wish we still did… we’d come check-out Miss Noelle. Looking forward to hearing more about the new locations, and hoping they are closer to us here in Oklahoma. I’m a big fan of the show and support everything you guys do for the dogs and parolees. Thanks, Tina :)

    Hi guys. I just wanted to say thank you for what you guys are doing for the ones that cant speak for themselves. I just recently got a pit and he is my cuddle bug. People dont realize how sweet they are. Such a bad rep and its not true. Chaos my pit is 80 lbs and his sister is a mini 4 lbs chihauhau. and they are best friends. Well just wanted to say you guys are doing something so amazing and THANK YOU

    As a police officer for 16 years, I can recognize when someone has been rehabilitated. Can you get the Pits and Parolees producers to stop putting “Ex-Parolee” under Armando’s name every time they show it? Mando has paid his “debt to society”, and he’s clearly now more of an ASSET to society than many people who have never been in prison. He should not have to continue to carry the stigma of being labelled an “ex-parolee.”

    Thank you.

    l love the breed of pits they are loyal and beautiful dogs my dog “baby” died on fathers day this year i have her pic on my facebook page i look outside and dont see her out there and my heart still greives for her she was six weeks old when i got her and she was like one of my children i want another pit so bad i know she cant be replaced but i love them and i hate tht people mistreat them and fight them cause they are so loving, protective , playful and loyal. I wish i could help financially. All i can do is pray tht what yall are doing continues. GOD BLESS YOU AND THE PITS!

    I fell in love with Noelle, after watching last night’s episode. I can’t believe you got her in Baton Rouge, as I am three hours away in the Biloxi area. She’s beautiful and looks to have a great personality. I see you’ve had her right at a year now. I hope all is well with her. Thank you for taking time to save her and so many who really need your help!!!

    i think what youre doing is great!!! i live in upstate ny-i want to make a difference in my hometown.i see alot of pets/animals tossed off to the side-wether@the humane society or just dumped along the road-it saddens me-i’d like to come out for a visit-and take something away that i can use here@home.i have experience and a great love for animals-keep up the great work that you’re doing-be well.

  8. mrsmaryd on November 20th, 2011 2:01 pm

    THANK YOU from all corners of my soul for the services, awareness, rescues, kindness and teachings you have shared with your wonderful “organization”. (I ” ” organization cause it just simply goes FAR beyond that of an organization). Your pitties and parolees gig speaks volumes of what your heart holds, teaching the ignorant that not only 2 legged “animals” but four legged as well can & do THRIVE when given the chance. I wish that my husband had such an opportunity in helping “find” the better in himself with something as this!

  9. Brenda on November 20th, 2011 5:09 pm

    I saw this rescue on TV and Mando and Jake did such a good job. I cannot tell you how much I am touched by your program. I have had pits for over 10 years and have rescued everything I could from hunting dogs left in the woods to starve to horses people just could not care for.

    I have 3 bulldogs currently and and a peekapoo/chiahua mix I named Harley. I just love my bulldogs so much; I think God gave them a smile so people would not fear them but love them. It is unfortunate some cannot see there beauty.

    My bonus daughter is named Tia Marie so when I heard the commercial on APL the first time I was intrigued by your name and mission. I am currenlty finishing my masters degree in guess what…nursing and pay $700 a month for tuition but when I am done in June I will be setting up an account to help with what I can.

    THANK YOU for loving critters and people. You are beautiful inside and out!!

    The reunion between Roxy and her owner after a year’s separation and all of the hard work all of you do at Villalobos, made me realize I was donating to the wrong organization. I would like to adopt a pet online via donations once a month. I already maintain a full house hold…German Shepherd/Chow Mix, Chow Chow and Chiweenie. Once in awhile I will foster dogs and find owners for them, but I work 12 hours a day and cannot take in another pet.

    Hang in there all of you and I will pass the word around to friends and family to send money your way.

    Hugs and kisses from our home to yours,


  11. Erica on November 20th, 2011 7:14 pm

    Noelle is so absolutly adorable, my mom loves her. We’d love to adopt a Pit but we have a nine pound poodle mix, and there’s alot to consider and know ya’ll dont like to adopt out to people with smaller dogs. Plus my Dad is against pits, even thought we’ve had a pit mix for twelve years who just passed away. I hope Noelle finds an amazing home.

  12. Shelbie Davis on November 20th, 2011 10:14 pm

    I LOVE your show. I love what you are doing for them and I really want noelle but we have 2 dogs already they are labs but I am in love with noelle

  13. Tom wolff on November 21st, 2011 4:56 am

    Hi Tia and family of villalobos. I am an avid watcher of your show and have been watching ever since it started. I own an amazing pitbull myself in a small community where people do not understand the love and compassion they have for people that care about them. I live in Illinois so I understand there’s not much I can do to help. I wish I could adopt every dog there but realistically I can’t so if I can help any way what so ever let me know. If I can send you money securily or even come volunteer my help for a week that would be amazing. I can’t emphasize enough how much I support what you do. Thank you so much. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance

  14. Annette on November 21st, 2011 5:06 pm

    Tia, I have so much respect for you. U are tough but have a heart of gold. U give the parolees and pitbulls the chances no one else does. Me and my 2 kids have rescued 2 pitbulls. One from an LA shelter and the other was an abandoned puppy pitbull left behind in an apartment. These pits are the best dogs, so loving and loyal and so full of personality. Its is the most maligned breed but until u own one or interact with them you cant really give a negative opinion. Give them a chance and the dogs return the love tenfold. I am truly sorry u r leaving CA. But no matter where u go your mission will be the same and your spirit will fly. Thank u for all your great work and dedication.

  15. Maygrace Wrabel on November 21st, 2011 6:22 pm

    I watched Noelle’s video and I just love her!!! I was wondering if she is good with dogs and kids??

  16. Kendra on November 22nd, 2011 8:24 pm

    I saw the episode when you rescued Noelle. She is such a beautiful dog and seemed so well mannered. i would love to adopt one of your dogs but i have to of my own. Keep up the GREAT work you all do and keep you heads held high!! The worst is over.

    TIa and the gang,

  18. Tiffani Plummer on November 23rd, 2011 6:38 pm

    TIa and the gang,
    I watched the episode where you guys rescued noelle, that was a long trip for jake and mondo, but it was worth while. you originally made the trip to get the porpupin dogs and then you ended up bringing Copper, Noelle and the porpupin dogs what a great job!

    That is a very kind comment re Mando, we all love him!

  22. michaele lee on November 26th, 2011 1:39 am

    Tia, my dads 7 month old female brindle pit got picked up by animal control for the second time in 3 days. I think she is in the Kingman AZ humane society and she has until monday to be adopted. I already paid 158 bucks to get her out the first time. I cant do it again. I do not know if you have any way to help. The dog is a smaller female and is super sweet. I want the help again but it is impossible. If there is anything you could do, it would be wonderful. THe dog is so young and has a long life if someone gets her out of there. The number is 928-753-2727

  23. Mackenzie Kurtz on November 27th, 2011 10:30 am

    I love her, she’s such a sweetheart. Thanks for rescueing her, she’s lover and deserve a second chance of finding a home. If I didn’t live have 3 dogs already or live in Minnesota, I would loved to get her. Soon as I get my own place I promise I will be calling and asking. It’s my dream and wish to own pitbull and provid to my family that pitbulls’ are loving like any other breed of dog, like I know they are. Thanks again for a you do, your changing a lot lives. Wish you well and keep saving the breed that we both love so much.

  24. len bailey on November 27th, 2011 4:47 pm

    I love the show and have watched faithfully since the very first episode. I love dogs in general and pits are one of my favorite breeds. Every dog I see on the show I want, but last week when I saw Noelle I burst into tears. She reminded me so much of my beloved 17 year old Tristan that I had to put to sleep last April.

    I’d give anything to adopt her but I know how strict you are (and rightfully so )…and I live in Tennessee…and I have another dog, a 7 year old female Irish Setter, so adopting her would’nt be a possibility within your guidelines…but I just can’t stop thinking about her. Hoping, praying and sending much mojo that you find the perfect home for that beautiful girl.

    Tia, you’re a beautiful soul….and my hero.

  25. Danielle on November 28th, 2011 2:15 pm

    she is such a pretty dog, she actually looks just like a dog that we had, but unfortinitly had to get rid of her in october of 2010 due to the fact that we live in a trailer park and was about to have our second child. i really love what you guys do there and maybe one day i will get to come visit. keep up the good work.

  26. mason mourton on November 29th, 2011 5:10 am

  32. heather smith on February 1st, 2013 11:17 pm

    Tia and Villalobos Family,
    i literally just re-watched the episode when you sent Jake and Mando to pick her up today. trip was for 3 dogs wound up being 4- i absolutely love everything you guys do. if i was closer to you i would volunteer in a heartbeat and be involved in any way that i could. Being from New Jersey, if im ever in New Orleans or anywhere close i would love to come out just to meet you and everyone there and help for as long as im welcome while im there. keep doing everything you do cause your not only changing dogs lives but opening up the eyes of people that think pit bulls are a horrible breed, person by person. i adore pit bulls, and what you do is more than inspiring to me.

  33. Joi on March 27th, 2013 4:51 pm

    this dog is identicle to my dog, Dharma!! She is such a lover and loves to swim. I hope this pup as well as the rest get homes soon!!

Got something to say?
