Hi my Name is


Cheech and Chong though here for years looking for a home of their own, have now become lifetime residents here at Villalobos.  You see earlier this year Chong was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. These two brothers are so attached at the hip that we refused to separate them so because of Chong's ongoing health care, Cheech will remain here with him. These two big lugs have now become our official mascots and we love them dearly.  If you ever have the honor of meeting them, you too will feel the same.  With their slobbers, drools and silly antics, they have just stolen our hearts and though we know that Chong is living each day to the fullest, we hope that the higher powers to be realize that his magical personalty is so needed here to help keep our spirits up to get by in a world that can sometimes be so cruel.  Brotherly love to the fullest.

  8. Arniese on December 15th, 2011 9:30 pm

    AwW too bad they cant be with any other animals because we have a bulldog that looks just like them. And they would be a great trio.

  9. madison on December 17th, 2011 11:58 pm

    my mom would love these dogs but we already have 3 other dogs that are boys and a cat and 2 horses plus we can’t afford to pay the adoption fee :_( but i hope they get adopted soon 😉

    They are beautiful, and like many others I would take them now. I am well aware of the responsibilities of a large dog, and the damage they are capable of in a very short period of time. I just lost my Weim last may at the age of 15 years I miss her terribly. but still have my 7 year old Uno (Cone Corso) and Spanky my Yorkie, and noisy the cat, so you wouldn’t give us a second look anyway. But wanted to let you ALL know that you are our west coast hero’s. Uno does miss his former pack of a fe Rottie, Fe Newfie, Fe Pitt and Ma Pitt. We all don’t get to meet up much anymore unfortunately. All our love and best wishes.

    P.S. always watching

    Uno & Spanky

    I have 2 American bulldogs and they are the great two dogs I have ever had in the 43 yrs of have dogs. If I did not have 2 dogs and 3 cats I would take them in a heart beat. Who ever gives them a for ever home will will never want a nother breed of dog. I love the bull breed. A lot of people think they are pit bulls and that ok with me because my son has a pitbull and his dog is just as loving and great as my american bulldogs are. I now in my heart that pit bulls are not bad dogs they are only what there owns/ people make them. If you give them a lot of love and be kind to them and care for them they will give back the same. A pitbull or american bull dog will give there life with no regreat for there owns the ones who give them love , life and happyness. I now this have seen it . There was a black germanshepered that play with my am , bulldog lieba every day from the day the dog movied in next door. That greman shep, whent after my husband one day on are front pourch as soon as my husband sept out of the house on to the front pourch and lieba protected my husband and went for that dogs througt. My husband yell to lieba to stop and come back to him and she did . No one was hurt and the dog never whent after my husband again and lieba still played with him after that. If you read this and give these two dogs a for ever home you will be getting 2 realy great dogs.

    What is the deal with these two? Are they escape artists? Are they too aggressive too protective of each other? What am I missing? They have stayed way too long without being adopted
    Are they trainable. Are there behaviors and past experiences irreversible? I want these two and have been accustomed to special needs but have always known of past histories…the description leaves me questioning what am I missing….
    Louise/ Tia. Please fill me in I do not want to start the process without learning all I can about them we want both them and us to be beneficial from our relationship

  13. Karlyn on January 17th, 2012 5:38 pm

    These two are AMAZING! You can just see the mischief in their faces. I am praying you will be able to find them the perfect loving home! They definitely deserve it. :o)

  14. Sara on January 25th, 2012 6:03 pm

    I am here for Bully Boot Camp and I must say Cheech & Chong are so freaking awesome, they are my best buddies here.

  15. Bethany on February 12th, 2012 12:30 am

    Man, I follow VRC on twitter and their twitter page is nothing like their home page on here anyways these two seem to be adorable!! Very cute

  16. Cherie Bohnenstiehl on February 12th, 2012 11:31 am

    I had the pleasure to care for both Cheech and Chong while they went to the Doctors. I just could not get enough kisses from Chong. I stood by his side all during surgery and the waking up process. He thinks he is a poodle, God Bless them and I know someone out there is just waiting to give them the best home ever.

  17. Jessica on February 12th, 2012 2:13 pm

    I would take these big boys in a second. I already have two American Guilford. brother and sister 77 and 115 lbs….they sound just like them love to play….springing from couch to couch.

  19. ashley on February 20th, 2012 2:11 pm

    How old are they?

  20. Renee on March 9th, 2012 12:15 pm


    Thank you for what you do. It means the world to the dogs and you make a difference. I have always loved the show since it shows the cuddly side of what media makes out to be bad dogs. You give them hope. My greatest friend was a pit my uncle use to have named Cybele. She was my protector when I went to visit and a total doll. For her sake and i know if she was alive and could talk she would say thank you as well. You really are an inspiration, and when I am ready to get another dog i am coming to you. Cheech and Chong are lucky to have you take care of them

  21. Patricia on April 8th, 2012 11:09 pm

    Awww American Bulldogs! I worked for a breeder years ago and absolutely fell in love with this breed. I was able to purchase three wonderful dogs from them and loved them very much. They are no longer on this earth but watch me from heaven. Good luck boys finding your forever home.

  22. Shauna Jiselle Owens on August 3rd, 2012 2:13 pm

    Are these handsome boys still available for adoption?

  23. Amber on November 28th, 2012 10:39 am

    i love thier names and tia i love what you do for a very mis unstood breed pit bulls and bully breeds period are my favorite breed

  24. Luciana on December 1st, 2012 11:03 pm

    They are so cute! I hope “lil”Chong have lots of fun at the river house! You guys are so nice to the dogs! I cry every time I watch the show! I am so glad there is people like you guys out there! 😀

  25. Erika on December 1st, 2012 11:16 pm

    How is Chong doing? So sad to hear of his diagnosis! I lost my dear cat to cancer last month. I hope he is well.

  26. Robyn Mendenhall on December 2nd, 2012 12:42 am

    So happy that Cheech and Chong have their home now. I hope Chong has a lot of pain free happy days there with his beloved brother. I want to hug them both! The twins did a wonderful job on Doggy Eden.

  27. Michelle Ulrich on December 2nd, 2012 2:10 am

    Cheech and Chong are just too cute! I just got finished watching the show where Chong was diagnosed with cancer. I cried right along with everyone at the rescue. I would really like to know how both dogs are doing and if they are loving their new home with the twins. Everything that you all do, for the dogs and for the people, is an amazing thing to see in this day and age. As an animal lover, a pitbull lover, and being owned by a pitbull/bloodhound mix I thank you for bringing awareness of just how loyal and sweet the dogs are. Please keep up the good work, and God Bless!

  28. Brandon Odle on December 2nd, 2012 2:11 am

    I seen your show for the first time tonight to learn about these
    Beautiful boys. I tried to research the outcome of chong.
    I wanted to check to see if he is still fighting and to wish both of them the best. I moved to Florida from Indiana and I would love to come visit your facility and see some of your rescues. I think it is amazing what all of you are doing for these dogs that there undeserving owners could not thank you for being there for them.

  29. jaiden egle on December 2nd, 2012 2:14 pm

    i really want them i got a BIG backyard no fence though :’C so ya but i could get an electrical fence and if chong really is gonna die then ill take cheech poor babys

  30. Briana on December 2nd, 2012 4:51 pm

    I cried my eyes out last night watching the episode I hope Chong is still alive and well their story truly broke my heart more than any other from this show! Thank you Tia & VRC team for everything you do!

  31. Rachel on December 2nd, 2012 8:33 pm

    I just recently watched the latest episode and was in tears after the vet called giving Tia the horrible news of Cancer!!:( I had my first pitbull also die of mass cell tumors and know first hand how heartbreaking it is! I am very curious to hear how he is doing and also how his best friend is holding together thru his buddies illness?!? My heart goes out to them… You are all more wonderful than anyone could ever explain for doing what you do for the bully breeds!!! Thank you from Me and my two pitties Chloe and Chaunsey:) XOXO

  32. Delaney mors on December 2nd, 2012 10:09 pm

    I saw the episode and I almost cried when Tia did.That lump on Chong’s leg was huge.I am glad they got to live happier and Chong will died not feeling so locked up. And they have a lake to go in when ever they feel the need to.

  33. Delaney mors on December 2nd, 2012 10:13 pm


  34. Delaney mors on December 2nd, 2012 10:19 pm

    I used to have a pit mix. She was my total life.She peers down and watches me every where I go.I am so sorry you cried. I cried to when I found out about Chong’s diagnosis. My pit mix died because of a tumor.R.I.P all dogs (especially pitbulls and bully breeds):)

  35. Victoria on December 3rd, 2012 1:35 am

    I saw these two brothers on Saturday’s show and fell in love! Their brotherly love only reminded me of how much love our four legged friends give. I was in tears when the vet gave Tia the news of his illness. I especially feel for his brother since you know that he is going to miss him so. I’m definitely sponsoring these boys!
    Thank you Tia and family for all your work and dedication.

  36. Tanya Jones on December 3rd, 2012 10:49 am

    I just watched the episode on Church and Chong. It made me cry. Is Chong still alive and living with the twins? Will Church, stay with them even after Chong passes? My prayers are with them and all the dogs and the staff of Villalobos.

  37. Ronda on December 4th, 2012 3:13 pm

    Just wonering how Chong is doing. Is he still with you. Really wondering how Cheech will do. Would love to take them both but have too many right now. I have a rescued Boston Terrier, an older 1/2 Pom 1/2 Boston, my daughter’s Doxie and a rescued German Shepherd. When me crew goes down I would love to adopt one of your pits. Will continue to watch and after the first of the year see about being a pit-pal Thanks from Montana

  38. jessica on December 10th, 2012 10:39 am

    i love these two dogs i hopeeverything gose great for them in their new home with the twins

  39. Sherry G on November 2nd, 2013 3:07 pm

    hi Tia,

    I think its wonderful what you do for all those dogs. so many people think pits are “evil” dogs. I dont believe there are bad dogs, but there are bad owners.

    I was wondering how cheech and chong are doing? Im a cancer survivor myself, so that story really touched me.

    God bless you and your staff for all you do.

  40. Sharon Ellis on November 2nd, 2013 3:35 pm

    What kind of dog is Cheech and Chong? They look like Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs to me. I have 2 Alapahas and i love them. I was so very moved by your show with Cheech and Chong. I cried as if they were my own. I admire you and all your workers for the job that you do in rescue. Would love to know what happens to “The Boys”. Love your show here in PA.

  41. maremar on November 2nd, 2013 6:15 pm

    Tia u and your staff are Angles of Mercy my God bless u for all u do for dogs and people. I noi u have a special place in Heaven

  42. Jennifer on November 3rd, 2013 6:55 pm

    I saw the show where Chong had his surgery to remove the cancer mass. As I was watching, I thought you stated Cheech and Chong were the twins dogs? So are they up for adoption?

  43. Ashton Renee` on November 9th, 2013 3:10 pm

    i watched the show where Chong went to the vets and it made me cry. I hope everything works out great

Got something to say?
