Hi my Name is


Mr. Meanor as in….misdemeanor as opposed to felony…..just a little jailhouse humor going on here. This little junkyard dog wandered the downtown L.A. streets for months, strutting his stuff like he owned the block. Though he appeared like a scene from "Lady and the Tramp" his life was no Disney movie. He still had to dodge speeding cars, dog fighters looking for their next victim and vicious packs of dogs. But a local business was soon to become his guardian angel and began to feed him. Then one day he disappeared. The employees of the business began to worry about him and eventually hunted him down at the local animal shelter. After bailing him out, we decided he was too cute to have been a "felon" for going to doggie jail so he only warranted having committed a "misdemeanor" thus the name….Mr. Meanor. He is a roly poly squishy love bug who ADORES every human he meets. WE LOVE THIS DOG and he would make someone a fun companion. Oh and don't let his age fool you. He is full of piss and vinegar!!

    Tia i think what you’re doing with these dogs is amazing. I have been a huge fan of your rescue and I’m so glad that dogs are being adopted, and that you’re even getting new dogs. I have been watching your shows and looking through your websites non-stop, I just can’t get enough of Villalobos. Mr. Meanor is one of the sweetest dogs, well from what I’ve seen on the show and saw on the web he is.

    Mr Meanor reminds me of the sweet, outgoing, wonderful qualities that encompass pit bulls. All pit bulls deserve a guardian angel, and I pray that every dog will get their own special place to call home. My pit bull Bruce was the best dog in the world, not a day goes by that I don’t miss my little snuggle buddy. I live in Georgia, so adopting a dog from Villalobos is on my bucket list! Keep up the awesome work Villalobos, there are so many people who support you, typically though, the non-supporters are always the loud ones. Yall have a great cause and are doing an amazing job! “Racism is the Pits.”

    Every time I am on this site I am drawn to Mr. Meanor. I would love to have him if I didn’t live some place that doesn’t allow Pits. Working on buying a house so hopefully he will still be available.

    He could be My Blue Boys Brother, My blue and white male pittbull he showed up in my front yard a lost dog just one year and a half old and he was wearing a collar but no tags and they scanned him at the shelter for a microchip no microchip either we looked for a home when we were unable to keep him cause my rat terrier Skitters decided she didn’t like him and we could not find him a home we had to take him to the shelter at first they told us they were full even after we told them he was a stray we found in our front yard we had to call the rescue that I volunteer for and have them talk to the shelter finally they took him I had named him My Blue Boy that was his full name My Blue Boy but I called him Blue for short I wanted to keep him so sweet and so playful and so young too but it still took My Blue Boy 3-4 months before he was adopted out of the shelter around here if the pittbull is nice and has no health issues they make breaking world records for how long they get to stay up for adoption before they are put down they keep them longer than they keep the hounds here the problem seems to be labs and chihuahuas. Thankyou for making it possible for pittbulls such as this guy here and My Blue Boy and Momma Pitt as well another pittbull I knew who was a black pittbull greatdane mix the size of a dane the appearance of a pittbull to find good and loving homes! Because of you alot more people trust the breed than before you came along.

    I had tears while reading about Mr. Meaner. It is wonderful that he got a well deserved home. We lost our beloved Miss Olivia one year ago and not a day goes by that I don’t cry because of the void she has left in my life. We have two labs that I (we) adore, but once you have a loving bully you are never the same. Their personalities are unmatched by any other breed. We are an older couple so when we are ready for another companion it will be adopting an older bully. At this point in our lives we want to give a loving home to a dog who needs to live out their final years with people who understand and care to be there for them. I thank you Tia and your ranch for helping me realize the need for being there for these dogs. All dogs need homes, but our bully’s are so misunderstood. If people only gave them a chance they would know genuine love. Miss Olivia never gave in to her cancer until the day she left us. Even then she looked at me with such love and appreciation for being her human for 12 wonderful years. What a gift she was to us and I miss her so much.

    My Mr is home!!! We LOVE this guy. He is the sweetest. We couldn’t be happier. Thanks to all the VRC family who took care of my Mr over the years. Love all of you guys!!

    Tia u r doing a wonderful thing with the dogs. U will be blessed in everyway possible. Here in Baltimore theres alot of pitbulls that dont have good homes, there r a couple of shelters that do alot. I.just wish there was more that could be done. I have a 4 yr. Old pit bull we adopted as a puppy,he is the best dog ever. I due my best to educate people about them, some people r just one sided anyway keep up the good work. Wish u would come visit Baltimore.

    He’s beautiful, I had a pit that looks just like him, named Dexter. He just came up missing. Wishing and praying he’ll be home soon. He would always follow my kids and watch them like a parent. But he thought he run the block and all the female dogs were his. We live in Arkansas outside of Little Rock in the country so you don’t have to have them fenced in or chained up. He always stayed in the yard just a country dog and great with kids. But would get in fights over a female, mostly with his Dad Boodro he lives behind us at my mother-in-laws with 2 female boxers. But hopefully Dexter will be home soon and just want to say Thanks for all y’all do. Pitts are really misunderstood and their actually sweet dogs and great with kids. Any dog can bite and be aggressive but it’s how you raise them and love them that counts. So it’s good to know that people like y’all are there to help them and wish y’all the best at your new home.

    He looks identical to our Ransom! He just has more white on his chest. You guys do such an amazing job! Keep up the good work! One day hopefully our favorite breed will be safe from breed specific legislature. I don’t know where I would be without our sweet boy and alot of people (not everyone) has a different outlook on the breed now just from being around him. I hate to put so much pressure on him but I know there are still many just waiting on him to do something bad. Maybe eventually they will be able to see him the way we do…as a big kid who only attacks and kills flies! LOL

    Tia i love your show i also have a great love for pit bulls. I wish there was a way to make people understand it’s not the breed that’s bad it’s the humans that raise them to be bad (in which can be any breed dog). Is there a way to come to your place to see your dogs I would love to visit.

  16. marylin on December 1st, 2012 5:45 pm

    i love what you do for giving the pit bulls a second chance they deserve it they are the best companion a person could ever have i have one and he’s my world he’s a big spoil brat like people say but he’s my world…..
