Pit Boss on Animal Planet
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’s love for pit bulls dates back to age 14 when he got his first pit – a year after he began living on his own. His pit bull was his constant companion and helped ease Shorty through a tough adolescence. After being convicted for gang-related activities and serving 10 years in prison, Shorty committed to turning around his life; he avows that pit bulls helped make him a better person, and in return, he pledges to help make their lives better in any way he can.
"Pit bulls have a bad rap," says Shorty, "though they don’t deserve it at all. It’s what people have done to these
pits or how they have trained them that caused this horrible misperception. Pit bulls are
beautiful and energetic
dogs that make wonderful companions and have the ability to bring out the best in just about any one – the
elderly, children, the handicapped, and yes... even the little people of this world!"
Shorty began his rescue in 2001, and since then, he, along with his team, works tirelessly to help pit bulls and repair their reputation. In PIT BOSS, follow Shorty, Sebastian, Ronald and Ashley as they hit the streets of LA in their fight to overcome stereotypes – for themselves and the pit bulls they save.
