Pit Boss : Animal Planet
Saturday 10pm AP
Former actor, entertainment guru and pit bull rescuer Shorty Rossi has lofty ideals, a tough attitude and an entertainment industry Rolodex to help his cause. And he's gathered together three friends/employees; Ronald, Ashley and Sebastian, to take on the gargantuan task of rescuing, rehabbing and training the most misunderstood of dogs—pit bulls.
Shorty, a workaholic with a devilish sense of humor and quick temper, balances two jobs—running Shortywood Productions, a Hollywood talent management company for little people, as well as Shorty’s Rescue, his pit bull rescue group.
Shorty, aptly named, and his three cohorts happen to be little people with the biggest hearts for these adorable dogs, who often are bigger than they are. From the producers of Millionaire Matchmaker and Blowout, Pit Boss follows the everyday drama and joy of these buddies and business partners as they hit the streets of Los Angeles in their fight to overcome stereotypes — for themselves and the pit bulls they save.
Does anyone watch this show? Its already into Season 2. DH & I have watched it off and on both last season and this one. While we do not own any dogs and would personally never own a pitbull, I have always found the rescuing of animals a wonderful thing to do.
BUT this brings me to this past Saturday night's epi. Shorty received a call from a woman stating that her neighbor has gone out of town, possibly Europe and left 3 pitbulls in her house alone. Shorty decides he needs to go check it out. In the middle of the night, all donned in black attire, he goes with two of this employees, arrives to hear the dogs all barking loudly. Shorty proceeds to take a bat and smash in the window of this home, climbs in, gathers up the dogs and opens the front door and walks out with them …. are.you.kidding.me. He was arrested and then was released.
I found this so wrong. Then the owner returns from Europe to find her dogs missing. She is given Shorty's number, calls him and says that she heard he had her dogs and would like them back. Shorty tells her to come to his rescue office/facility and he tells her HE will decide if she can get them back … are.you.kidding.me. Now I am thinking this all has to be some joke.
Well the lady comes by, explains that the person hired to care for the dogs did not follow through. Shorty tells her that he wants to see how the dogs react to her. Well of course the dogs love her and jump all over her and Shorty scolds her and tells her to NEVER let that happen again … are.you.kidding.me.
All very odd. Breaking and entering, no clue why he was released. Last I knew that was a crime.
Just was wondering if other FORT FANS watch Pitboss?
