Okay entertainment, but poor role models

I love all animals; Pit Bulls, and Alligators included. I guess, for a reality show, it may be okay; but, what type of audience likes reality shows? When I first started watching this show, I was entertained; now, I'm appalled. It seems that Shorty has an Ego problem: come help with rescue; other plans, or not. When something goes wrong, _____ *ucke'd up! Never, I was asking too much of them at the time. The staff I liked best were Ashley, Sebastian, and Ronald; the latter two are both gone, I wonder why?? The only positive message I see is the endless desire to rescue these dogs, and the fact that height is not an issue. Sometimes, it is too much unlike reality. Pit Bulls are far from dangerous, when allowed to be a Pit Bull naturally; nonetheless, too many are exploited for fighting, and those dogs are too dangerous to be a family pet.

Stay away!

Lesbian little people and hard partying cast members. All rolled up into a show that tries to come off as if it's all about promoting animal welfare when in fact, it is simply promoting a leftist agenda.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
