Mando and O’ My Dogz!

Mando and O’ My Dogz!

The name is O' My Dogz!!

The website is   

O' My Dogz consists of Armando & Ruby Galindo and Jason & Natalie Franks, now known as the OMD Family!

"Mando" of Pit Bulls & Parolees (and also a Villalobos employee) along with his wife Ruby ( or as we know her, Rubilicious, also a Villalobos employee) are co-creators of these cool shirts.  Jason and Natalie Franks are not only members of the OMD Family, but the Villalobos one as well.  Their countless hours of support and dedication are invaluable. 

And once again these devoted followers of our cause have created a cool t-shirt line, where a portion of the proceeds will eventually be used to help support our sanctuary dogs.

So pitch in and purchase the first of many designs of an O' My Dogz shirt.  For more information, go the their website and know that you are helping unwanted and homeless Pit Bulls.

    I just wanted to Thank You for all you do! I myself am a PROUD pitbull owner and engaged to a “felon” and constantly find myself defending both of them…but I won’t have it any other way! My dream is to one day have a rescue here in Wiscinsin (there are only a few). I also work at Veterinary clinic and attend school. You all are truely an inspiration to me and my family! We understand your passion because we feel it too! Bless your hearts.

    You can try looking on and search out groups in your zip code. I wish there was more we could do but you are too far away. Wishing you the best.

    i recenty made the decision to foster a pitt mix from the Manhattan animal shelter. i seen her on a urgent2 thread. the people who helped me get her pulled from “the List” to be put down can never be repaid enough for helping get these dogs saved. They spend hours and hours assisting people to foster or adopt these death row dogs. Sadly for all the ones they do save there is always so many that don’t make it. i am lucky to live in a county that is a no kill shelter. what we need to do is to change some laws and come up with solutions so that this doesn’t keep happening. Puppy mills should be outlawed everywhere. For all the animals that give to us mabe we should be giving back in same.

    Just wanted to say i love the show and everything ya’ll do for these misunderstood and ignorantly hated dogs. From an ex pitbull and current American Bulldog owner. (those are by far the best dogs i have ever owned)

    Hello Everyone. Just wanted to say that I think you guys are doing a wonderful job at saving the lives you are able to save. My husband and I have 2 dogs, one is a Black Lab/Rott mix and the other is a Pit Bull. The pit is the youngest at 17 months, he can be an ass at times but what pup isn’t. I would not trade him or the other for the world. They love to have their stomachs and ears rub just like any other dog. You guys keep up the good work.

    Hello everyone, My name is Jessa. Im 33 yrs old and have been through my fair share of just being just plain stupid over the years. a couple of yrs ago i met a named a guy who was fresh out of prison and homeless. He had a job but needed a place to stay long enough to get a paycheck and get his own place, I gave him that place to stay cuz i had been inm that situation many times before. It ended up being the best thing i have ever done with th eexception of giving birth to my kids. Shortly after him moving in with me we rescued a brindle pit/boxer mix named rayray from an abusive owner. He also turned out to be another at the top of the “greatest thing ever” list. I myself have been to jail several times and am a convicted felon. I know the struggles of trying to start over and finding someone who will give you just that one chance to prove that you do want a better life. Well someone did that for both me and my husband. Unfornately we had to leave our ray ray behind in order to accomplish this. I can say that we did find him a great home with kids that love him and a whole lotta of balls to destroy. That was his main goal in life. To be the killer of all balls. lol. we missw him so much. We recently saw promos for your tv show and instantly fell in love. My husband, my daughter and I watch evrytime it is on and we so l9ove everythhing you all stand for. I would to tell Tia what an amazing woman she is. What she has done for all the guys, there families and for all the beautiful missunderstood animals is truly a miracle in itself. I inherited forty acres near winslow,az that i am almost done paying off. One thing my husband and I have always talked about doing is opening our own pittbull rescue one day. Watching your show and seeing how many lives you all have made better is making me see that we may very well be able to do the same thing one day. Hopefully in the near future my family and I will be able to come to one of your facilities and meet you all in person. That would mean so much to us. After the craziness of the holidays and paying my land association dues, we would like to join your pet pals program and be part of something so ttotally amazing. I would also like to be able to drive to your new mexico facility and bring you some supplies. I have lots of blankets and towels that would be much better off with your animals. My family wishes you all the best for the christmas season and all the best for you moves. Looking forward to meeting you all soon. God bless and lots of wet kisses to all the dogs. much love and respect, The Lucas Family.

    You guys are really gods blessing to these dogs! i hope you guys never stop! i love what u guys do especially the fcat that its focused on pitbulls! i would love to come visit one day just to be able to see the whole sanctuary instead of just from my tv! I was also wondering if you guys would ever reconsider adopting out a dog to a home with another thats out of state! what would it take to reconsider that?

    Hi, my name’s Jake. I’m 26 years old, born and raised in Phoenix AZ, and have loved animals since I can remember. But I’ve had a particular love for dogs all my life. I’ve had times that when I look into a stray or pound dog, particularly pit bulls, and felt like we knew each other. Even though I’d never seen that dog in my life. Unfortunately, like many of your employees, I chose the wrong path when I was younger and ended up in prison after several trips to jail. I became addicted to heroin at 18 it’s almost destroyed my life. For a long period before I went to prison, I was homeless and lived on the streets of Phoenix. I wanted my dog, Dude, so bad at the time, but knew that I couldn’t even take care of my self, let alone a dog. So I had my parents keep him. One day I had gotten a call from my mom that they had recently taken him to the vet because of a growth on his shoulder. After everything was found wrong with him, and because of his age, the vet suggested he be put down. They decided to do it before I could even say goodbye. Shortly after I violated probation for the last time and spent 10 months in prison and another 2 months when I violated parole. Shortly after I got out, your guys’ show premiered. What Tia said in the title was exactly how I felt around dogs. I was also struggling to find work at the time because of my felony, so I knew how the guys felt. But there was one guy that I particularly noticed. I wasn’t sure about him at first because I was seeing a lot of the group he came with drop out or violate parole. But as I kept watching the show, I looked up to him as I was struggling, and became kind of a hero to me. Armando, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything you stand for and helped show me that guys like us CAN make it if we have the heart and the dedication. I want to say thank you. To Tia as well. She is just an all around wonderful person and can’t put in words how wonderful it is to see you guys doing the things you do. I almost gave up on the world, but I’ve honestly kept going with the the help of Tia showing me there are people who do give second chances, and Armando for showing me how to happy after coming out of a bad life. It’s still hard out here. I’ve grown scared to leave my house for the fact that heroin has become such an epidemic in Phoenix, that if I run into an old hookup or an old friend I used with (and there’s a lot of em!), I could get sucked right back in. I’m truly scared to use again, and I know I will unless I change something. I know it’s a long shot, and I know this is VERY long so I understand if it’s not posted. I just really hope this reaches Armando and Tia. I was thinking of moving to New Mexico. My family is still here, but I need to move but I didn’t want to move far because I also love Arizona weather as well. I would want nothing more than to have a chance to work for Villa Lobos. I’m not trying to be on TV. I assume the show will go wherever Tia goes. If all I can do is volunteer, so be it, but I’m willing to work harder than I ever have in my life just for an interview. If I just hear back from u guys I’ll be happy.

    I am confused, what happened to Villalobos in California. If Mondo is running the New Mexico location, where is Tia?

    Behind in Michigan

  16. vanessa west on February 11th, 2012 6:29 pm

    where did you get your hair cut? I know it was chop shop but in what city?

  17. laurie209 on March 7th, 2012 2:31 pm

    I do hope that you and the others were able to follow Tia to the new home. Please let us know as we feel that we all know you and will worry. You have such a great staff, hope that all are still together.
    Wishing all of you much success.

    I recently found your show through animal planet commercial . So I went online and have watched the show from sea.1 thru to current. I love what you and your guys and girls are doing. I own a pit/lab mix I rescued from the humane shelter. After A month at home he tried to follow me to work . My nieghbor saw him jump put the 2nd floor window screen. she called me from his phoone # tag ,I WAS AT WORK . my boss said to go get him and bring him with me. That was 7 years ago. I work security and TAZ ,has 10 bad guys caught that he has alerted me of. We watched the show together and he gets excited at the dogs barking. It is hilarious…. good luck and god bless.

    I just wanted to say that you (Tia) and your family inspire me so much. I’ve never been a fan of Pitbulls because I believed all the crap everyone said about them, but you have soo changed my view. I’m falling more in love with the bread with every episode. I’m a christian and I alwways got the feeling that Christians were not dog people’ but I am …..because of you. You are doing great things for these dogs’ and for this country educating people. I love the show. I tape it continually…watching reruns regularly. Please keep filming. It is working. I love your family and all the parolees! I’m so proud of them. We are learning they (the parolees) just need someone to care for them also. Many people here in Illinois are learning that too! GOD BLESS YOU!

Got something to say?
