I tried to download the video from AOL but it wasn't working so I had to go to Animal Planet. There are 20 videos on AP so I hope you can find it!!

Thx for sharing. I watch this show & agree Amer. Pitbull Terriers are unfairly judged as well as other BSL dogs which is why I am an advocate on their behalf to end discrimination of these breeds .Hopefully someday no breed of dog will be unfairly judged.

So many stories out there where an animal gives back to the human...often times, much, much more than the human's given. Animals are love, plain and simple.

Thanks for all that you do for all of the dogs. Thanks for not having breed discrimination. You are greatly needed. Thanks for giving the parolees a chance as well. Love your show and catch it every time I can. I wish you a very healthy, happy and prosperous New Year. May 2014 bring only the very best for you and your crew. May you always find forever homes.

Thank God we have people like Elia & the Parolees to rescue the dogs & cats. You guys are great, I love watching the rescues. I just cannot understand people who don't take good care of their animals, it makes me so mad.
God is saving a special sit in heaven for all your good work. I wish I was healthier to get involve.
I do agree some pitballs get a bad rap, I think it all matters with their owner training them properly and following through w/ interactions with dogs & people. A lot of them have no social skills, not their faults. I use to raise Dobermans, they were such babies by the time I got done training them. My kids use to use them as outfielders playing baseball, the dogs always love the interactions playing with the kids. So it all the way you treat them.

Noted and shared.....this was wonderful....I think more people should realize how wonderful pitbulls can be...that the myths the media portray is false...these are loving and protective dogs....they just need the is never the dog breed that is bad, we as humans make them bad and the sooner mankind realizes that the better!! This was a beautiful story and I can see how they saved each touching! Thanks for sharing Barb!
