HI, BEAUTIFUL.

HER NAME IS EMMA.

COMING UP ON "PIT BULLS & PAROLEES"...

TO GO HOME AND START FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE.

Mariah: I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW.

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE'S A LOT OF RULES

WHEN IT COMES TO PIT BULLS OVER THERE,

AND I CAN'T TAKE HER.

Lizzy: COME ON, GLENN.

HE'S SO CUTE.

UNFORTUNATELY, IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW GREAT

A DOG'S TEMPERAMENT IS.

OH, MY GOD, HIS BUTT.

YOU KNOW, NOBODY WANTS TO ADOPT A DOG WITH SKIN ISSUES.

-DO YOU FIND HIM TO BE ITCHY? -OH, YEAH.

WE REALLY NEED TO GET THIS CLEARED UP,

AND THAT'LL GIVE HIM HIS BEST SHOT AT A HOME.

HIS TAIL DOESN'T STOP WAGGING.

Tania: SHE'S VERY DEPENDENT ON HIM.

SO WE CAN NEVER SEPARATE THESE TWO.

Tia: IT'S VERY TOUGH FOR US TO ADOPT OUT A BONDED PAIR.

THEY'RE WILD, WILD, WILD.

THEY WANT TWO DOGS THAT CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER...

OH, MY GOD, LOOK AT HER!

...AND NEED A HOME DESPERATELY.

THE FACT THAT SHE'S SEEKING THAT ATTENTION IS PRETTY GREAT.

MY NAME IS TIA MARIA TORRES.

FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS,

I'VE RUN A SANCTUARY DEDICATED TO SECOND CHANCES.

IT'S FOR OVER 300 PIT BULLS,

THE WORLD'S MOST MISUNDERSTOOD BREED OF DOG,

AND FOR PAROLEES --

THE GUYS I HIRE BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WILL.

MY FAMILY AND I HAVE DEVOTED OUR LIVES

TO SAVING THESE DOGS WE LOVE SO MUCH.

FROM LOUISIANA SWAMPS TO THE STREETS OF NEW ORLEANS,

THE CITY OF SECOND CHANCES.

OUR MISSION IS TO RESCUE,

BUT MY HOPE IS ONE DAY WE WON'T HAVE TO.

OUR NUMBER-ONE GOAL IS TO GET EVERY DOG

INTO THE BEST HOME POSSIBLE.

AND THESE DOGS COME TO US IN ALL TYPES OF MEDICAL CONDITIONS.

OH, MY GOD, LOOK AT HIS SKIN.

Lizzy: I KNOW. WOW.

DOGS CAN HAVE SKIN ISSUES FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS.

YOU KNOW, IT CAN BE ENVIRONMENTS, YOU KNOW,

SUCH AS FLEAS, MITES.

Veterinarian: HE'S GOT A LOT OF SKIN ISSUES STILL,

SO I'M GONNA SCRAPE HIM AGAIN

AND SEE IF WE'RE MAKING HEADWAY ON THAT DEMODEX.

IT CAN VARY FROM PLACE TO PLACE

AS FAR AS THE TEMPERATURES, POLLEN IN THE AIR, GRASS.

Mariah: BUDDY.

IT CAN BE EMOTIONAL. IT CAN BE STRESS.

HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL START TO TREAT THE SKIN,

SO THAT WAY, WE CAN GET SOME REGROWTH.

YOU KNOW, NOBODY WANTS TO ADOPT A DOG WITH SKIN ISSUES.

Lizzy: LOOK AT HOW HE WALKS WITH HIS LITTLE FEET.

GLENN'S NAKED. OH, IMMEDIATE ITCHING.

GLENN WAS A DOG THAT WAS DROPPED OFF TO US A FEW DAYS AGO,

AND HE WAS IN PRETTY ROUGH SHAPE.

COME ON, GLENN!

YOU KNOW, COVERED IN FLEAS, YOU KNOW, REALLY DIRTY.

HE SEEMS TO HAVE SOME PROBLEMS WITH HIS SKIN,

BUT HE'S VERY SWEET.

HE'S READY TO BE FREE.

UNFORTUNATELY, IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW GREAT

A DOG'S TEMPERAMENT IS, HOW FRIENDLY HE APPEARS TO BE.

YOU KNOW, IF HE'S GOT SKIN ISSUES,

THAT TAKES AWAY ALL OF HIS CHANCES OF GETTING A HOME.

COME HERE, GLENN!

SO GETTING HIS SKIN TREATMENT GOING AND GETTING THAT RESOLVED

IS GONNA MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

GLENN GETTING A HOME OR NOT.

IS HE THE CUTEST DOG WE HAVE RIGHT NOW?

Lizzy: YEAH.

OH, MY GOD, GLENN. I LOVE GLENN SO MUCH.

THE SECOND I LAID EYES ON HIM, I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM.

HE'S VERY SWEET AND GENTLE.

HE'S, LIKE, EVERYBODY'S DREAM DOG,

LIKE THE PERFECT LITTLE FAMILY DOG.

I WAS HOPING TO START SHOWING HIM SOON,

BUT I WASN'T SURE WHERE HE WAS AT MEDICALLY.

IT'S NOT REALLY INFLAMED RIGHT NOW,

BUT SOMETIMES IT'S LIKE THE BUTT WILL GET A LITTLE BIT REDDISH.

YEAH.

GLENN IS A DOG THAT CAME INTO US HEARTWORM-NEGATIVE,

WHICH IS AMAZING, AND EVEN THOUGH HIS SKIN

IS KIND OF A MESS AND HE'S SO ITCHY ALL THE TIME,

HE JUST HAS SUCH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

AND THEN HIS DEWCLAWS ARE, LIKE, REALLY...

OH, WOW, YEAH.

...OUT OF CONTROL.

THEY GET SWOLLEN SOMETIMES.

I THINK THEY, LIKE, SNAG ON STUFF.

SO HE'S GONNA HAVE THOSE REMOVED, TOO?

YEAH. IDEALLY, YEAH.

SOME DOGS HAVE AN EXTRA DIGIT, WHICH IS A DEWCLAW,

AND IT'S HIGHER UP ON THE LEG.

THEY CAN BE PRETTY PROBLEMATIC SOMETIMES,

SO WE OPT TO REMOVE THEM WHEN WE CAN.

IF YOU WANT, I CAN SET UP AN APPOINTMENT

IF YOU WANT TO COME WITH ME.

YEAH, I'LL COME WITH.

GLENN IS SUCH AN AMAZING DOG, AND IT'S JUST SO IMPORTANT

THAT WE GET HIS SKIN UNDER CONTROL.

BLACK DOGS IN GENERAL TEND TO GET OVERLOOKED.

SO BEING THAT HE'S A BLACK DOG WITH SKIN ISSUES,

WE REALLY NEED TO GET THIS CLEARED UP,

AND THAT'LL GIVE HIM HIS BEST SHOT AT A HOME.

HE'S SO CUTE.

[ BARKING ]

Tia: HI, COURT-COURT.

OH, MY GOD, I CAN'T GET OUT. [ LAUGHS ]

TODAY, WE ARE MEETING WITH FORMER VRC ADOPTERS

EDIE AND DENNIS FROM TEXAS.

NICE TO MEET YOU.

-THAT'S MY DAUGHTER TANIA. -I'M TANIA.

-HI, TANIA. -NICE TO MEET YOU.

-I'M DENNIS. -NICE TO MEET YOU.

MY NAME IS DENNIS.

I'M HERE FROM TEXAS TO LOOK AT SOME DOGS

SO THAT WE CAN HOPEFULLY BRING ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER HOME.

HOW FAR WAS THE DRIVE?

IT'S ABOUT 14 HOURS.

OH, REALLY?

WHOO!

WE ADOPTED A DOG FROM VILLALOBOS FIVE YEARS AGO,

AND WE'D LIKE TO HAVE ANOTHER DOG.

WE NEED DOGS IN OUR LIFE. [ LAUGHS ]

Tia: DID YOU KNOW -- I THINK I TOLD YOU THIS MORNING

THAT THEY WERE THE ONES THAT ADOPTED CHALMETTE.

YEAH, THAT'S SO AMAZING. SHE IS THE BEST DOG EVER.

WE MISS CHALMETTE.

SHE JUST RECENTLY PASSED.

SHE WAS THE SWEETEST AND THE HAPPIEST PIT BULL I'VE EVER MET.

SHE PASSED AWAY ABOUT A MONTH AGO FROM CANCER,

SO WE KNEW IT WAS COMING,

BUT YOU CAN'T BE PREPARED FOR THAT. [ CHUCKLES ]

BECAUSE CHALMETTE WAS, LIKE, ONE OF THE OGs FOR US, YOU KNOW?

AND, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU LOSE A DOG BACK FROM THOSE DAYS,

IT GETS...

IT HITS.

...SENTIMENTAL.

Dennis: YEAH, IT DID.

IT IS SUPER SENTIMENTAL THAT THEY'RE COMING BACK

TO NOT ONLY ADOPT A DOG FROM US,

BUT THEY HAVE ASKED FOR A PAIR OF DOGS,

AND THEY SAID THE ONES THAT NEED THE HOME THE MOST.

THAT'S THE REASON FOR BEING BACK FOR A SECOND PAIR,

YOU KNOW, FOR A SECOND TRIP IS TO HONOR CHALMETTE

BECAUSE SHE DID SO MUCH FOR US, AND I FEEL WE DID FOR HER.

TO HEAR THAT YOU WANTED

NOT ONLY ANOTHER DOG, BUT POSSIBLY TWO...

TWO.

I WAS LIKE, "DONE AND DONE."

[ LAUGHS ]

Edie: TAKE TWO.

WHAT, AS, LIKE, AN AGE, PERSONALITY --

LIKE, WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? WHAT'S YOUR HOME LIFE NOW LIKE?

IT'S PRETTY QUIET, EXCEPT FOR THE GRANDKIDS.

-COME BY ONCE IN AWHILE. -WE HAVE A 7 AND A 5-YEAR-OLD.

THEY COME OVER.

YOU HAVE ANY OTHER OTHER ANIMALS BESIDES...

-NO. -NO ANIMALS.

YOU KNOW, WE REALLY WANT TO HELP WHO NEEDS THE MOST HELP.

YOU KNOW, WHOEVER PICKS US IS WHO'S GONNA WIN.

WHAT'S REALLY SWEET ABOUT EDIE AND DENNIS'S CRITERIA FOR DOGS

IS NOT BASED ON COLOR OR SIZE

OR ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE NEEDS OF THE HUMANS,

BUT IT'S MORE FOR WHAT THE DOGS NEED.

THEY WANT TWO DOGS THAT CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER

AND NEED A HOME DESPERATELY.

SO, THE FIRST PAIR WE'RE BRINGING IS FALKOR AND LEAH.

THEY WERE ACTUALLY STRAYS THAT MY EMPLOYEES CAUGHT.

THERE WAS THREE OF THEM TOGETHER.

ONE OF THEM IS GETTING A HOME, SO WE'RE DOWN TO THE LAST TWO.

FALKOR IS DEFINITELY THE GOOFY GUY, THE SWEET GUY.

SUPER, SUPER SWEET. OH, MY GOD.

LEAH -- SHE'S A LITTLE RESERVED, YOU KNOW, BUT SHE'S SWEET.

SHE NEVER TAKES HER EYE OFF THAT BOY OF HERS.

EVEN THOUGH FALKOR CAN GO WITHOUT LEAH, LEAH LOSES IT.

WE'RE TALKING THEY PRACTICALLY HAVE TO BE

TOUCHING ALMOST THE ENTIRE TIME.

IT'S PRETTY SEVERE HOW MUCH SHE NEEDS HIM

AND HOW ATTACHED SHE IS TO HIM.

SO THE FACT THAT WE HAVE ADOPTERS HERE

THAT ARE LOOKING FOR A PAIR OF DOGS,

IF THEY DON'T GET PICKED, THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE

THEY COULD SIT HERE WITH US FOR QUITE SOME TIME

UNTIL SOMEONE ELSE COMES ALONG.

OH, GOODNESS.

Edie: OH, LOOK AT Y'ALL.

Dennis: HELLO.

HELLO!

Tia: SAY, "HI, MAMA." MY GOD, LOOK AT THIS DUDE.

SHE'S A BLUE BAYOU GIRL.

OH, MY GOD.

SO CUTE.

LOOK AT YOU! YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE SHY.

HI!

OH, GOODNESS GRACIOUS.

LOOK AT YOU.

TO SEE FALKOR AND LEAH COME IN, WOW, OPPOSITES.

TOTAL OPPOSITES AS FAR AS COLORATION AND LOOK.

THEY'RE BOTH VERY BEAUTIFUL, UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL.

-AWW, YOU LIKE THE BUTT RUB? -"DON'T MESS WITH MY EARS."

OKAY.

Tia: HE'S SO CUTE.

THAT'S, LIKE, A CONVERSATION PIECE RIGHT THERE.

THAT'S THE ONE THAT PEOPLE ARE GONNA STOP AND SAY,

"WHAT IS THAT?"

Tania: LIKE, HIS SMILE.

OH, HI, WITH YOUR BIG HEAD.

GET UP THERE. HI. OH.

OH, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO -- WE GOT TO WATCH YOUR SKIN.

OH, MY GOD, LOOK AT HER!

LOOKS LIKE A PIG.

[ LAUGHS ]

AND THEN SHE THE SHY ONE.

Edie: THEY WERE BOTH SO SWEET.

LEAH IS A SHY DOG, AND SHE JUMPED RIGHT UP IN THE SEAT

WITH BOTH OF US, LICKED US RIGHT IN THE FACE.

WE WERE SO EXCITED.

Tia: HE'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE. HE'S RIGHT THERE.

HE'S RIGHT THERE.

HE'S RIGHT THERE.

Tania: YEAH, SO THAT'S -- LIKE, YOU CAN SEE, OBVIOUSLY.

YEAH. WOW! THAT'S LOVE.

SHE'S VERY, VERY DEPENDENT ON HIM.

WELL, WE WON'T SEPARATE YOU IF WE TAKE YOU, I PROMISE.

Dennis: YOU WOULD NEVER BE SEPARATED.

Tia: THERE YOU GO. HE'S BACK.

SHE ABSOLUTELY HAS TO GO WITH HIM,

SO WE CAN NEVER SEPARATE THESE TWO.

Tia: TO ME, FALKOR WORKED HIS MAGIC.

YOU KNOW, HE WAS A GOOD BALANCE, I THINK.

Tony: SAY, "SEE Y'ALL LATER."

Edie: BYE-BYE.

Tania: YEAH, YEAH.

WE'RE GONNA BRING OUT SHIVA AND RILEY.

OKAY.

WE PAIRED RILEY UP WITH A DOG NAMED SHIVA,

AND SHIVA CAME TO US AS A STRAY IN NEW ORLEANS.

HE'S A BIG OLD BEEFCAKE,

BUT HE HAS THE EXACT SAME PERSONALITY AS RILEY.

HE'S JUST LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES WITH FOUR LEGS,

VERY LOW-KEY, SUPER CALM.

THEY'RE VERY REFLECTIVE OF EACH OTHER'S

PERSONALITIES AND TEMPERAMENTS.

I'LL HELP.

[ LAUGHTER ]

Tia: COME ON, BIG BOY.

OH, RILEY.

HI, BABY. HI.

HELLO.

BOTH OF THESE ARE JUST, LIKE, PERFECT DOGS.

YEAH. OH, THEY'RE BOTH SO SWEET.

LOOK AT YOU.

GOOD GIRL.

SHE WANTS YOU TO -- SHE WANTS YOUR AFFECTION.

AND THAT TAIL IN YOUR FACE. [ LAUGHS ]

SHIVA WAS BEAUTIFUL AND BIG.

AND RILEY WAS SWEET AS COULD BE AND AN OLD SOUL.

SO, SHE DOES ENJOY THE COMPANY OF ANOTHER DOG,

JUST ANOTHER SWEET DOG.

BUT THE FACT THAT SHE'S SEEKING THAT ATTENTION IS PRETTY GREAT.

YOU'RE BOTH AWESOME.

YES, YOU ARE. YOU'RE SO SWEET.

YEAH, THESE TWO -- THESE TWO ARE GOOD ONES.

Edie: I LOVED SHIVA AND RILEY.

RILEY WAS SO SWEET.

I HAVE A SOFT SPOT FOR THE OLDER DOGS.

THEY KIND OF SEEMED LIKE THEY WERE FINE,

YOU KNOW, ON THEIR OWN.

THEY DIDN'T REALLY HAVE ANY INTERACTION WITH US,

BUT THAT'S OKAY.

THESE TWO, TO ME, WOULD BE THE TYPE JUST TO HANG OUT

AND JUST BE CONTENT.

HE'S VERY CONTENT.

IT'S MOSTLY QUIET AT MY HOUSE, SO YOU'D LIKE IT THERE.

YOU WOULD.

YEAH.

Tia: RILEY AND SHIVA DID EXACTLY WHAT RILEY AND SHIVA DO.

THEY JUST COME OUT, STAND OUT THERE SWEET.

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE JUST -- THEY'RE REALLY LOW-KEY DOGS.

I MEAN, HONESTLY, THEY'RE MY KIND OF DOGS.

THEY'RE JUST, LIKE, EASY MAINTENANCE.

BUT THAT BEING SAID,

I STILL WANTED THEM TO MEET THE OTHER DOGS.

SO, THE NEXT TWO WE'RE GONNA BRING OUT

ARE CORNUCOPIA AND TACOMA.

THEY ARE TYPICAL YOUNGER DOGS.

THEY'RE A LITTLE MORE ENERGY.

SOMETIMES THE WILD CARD WORKS.

OH, YEAH.

YOU NEVER KNOW.

CORNUCOPIA IS A LITTLE, BLACK PIT BULL MIX

THAT CAME IN AROUND THANKSGIVING,

AND TACOMA IS A LITTLE PIT MIX THAT ELISE AND HEIDI FOUND

ACTUALLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE RESCUE.

CORNUCOPIA -- WE USE HER FOR ALL THE DOG TESTING

AND JUST SEEING HOW,

ANY NEW DOGS THAT COME IN, WHAT THEIR PERSONALITY'S LIKE.

WHEN TACOMA CAME IN, I MEAN, HE WAS A LITTLE PISTOL,

SO WE PAIRED THE TWO WILD CHILDREN TOGETHER.

THESE ARE THE ENTERTAINMENT RIGHT HERE.

IT'S SO CUTE!

THESE ARE THE TWO SILLIES.

YOU LOOK LIKE SABLE.

YOU LOOK LIKE SUZY.

AND ALL HE WANTS TO DO IS PLAY.

HE'S LIKE, "OKAY, NOW THAT I MET YOU, GOOD. WE'RE GOOD."

SO, BASICALLY, IT'S THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THE LAST TWO.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WELL, WE KNEW THERE WAS A WILD CARD,

SO THAT'S WHAT I SAID.

"WILD" CARD.

WE STEPPED UP THINGS AT HOME, JUST IN CASE.

Dennis: MY INITIAL REACTION TO CORNUCOPIA

AND [LAUGHS] TACOMA WAS,

"WE'RE READY TO PLAY, WE'RE READY TO GO,

LET'S CLIMB A MOUNTAIN," AND THAT'S GREAT.

HI, GUYS.

YEAH, THESE TWO ARE -- YEAH, THEY JUST ENTERTAIN THEMSELVES

[ KISSES ]

THEY'RE WILD, WILD, WILD.

YES. THAT IS A WHOLE LOT OF ENERGY.

YES, YES.

HAPPY LITTLE PUPPIES!

[ LAUGHTER ]

YES.

OH, GOD!

OH, MY GOD. [ LAUGHS ]

OH, NO.

WE'VE ONLY HAD TACOMA, LIKE, FOR A VERY, VERY SHORT TIME.

OH, YEAH.

SO WE HAVE TO GET HIM NEUTERED, STILL.

Edie: YEAH.

Dennis: HI, GUYS.

OH, SO SWEET.

SAY, "I LOVE MY FRIENDS."

Edie: CORNUCOPIA AND TACOMA -- THEY WERE SO CUTE.

SO MUCH ENERGY.

A LOT OF ENERGY.

MAYBE A LITTLE BIT TOO MUCH ENERGY.

Tania: BYE, GUYS.

AT OUR HOUSE, WE GOT A BIG GRASS AREA.

AND THEN WE HAVE A BIG GRAVEL AREA FOR THEM.

SO THAT'S -- AS I SAY, THEY'RE READY.

TRUE TO CORNUCOPIA AND TACOMA'S REPUTATION,

THEY CAME IN LIKE A HURRICANE.

WHOA!

[ LAUGHTER ]

BUT IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR NONSTOP ENTERTAINMENT,

THESE ARE THE DOGS FOR YOU.

NOW, OF COURSE, THERE'S NEVER PRESSURE.

YOU KNOW, IF IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS

THAT Y'ALL WANT TO TALK ABOUT OR IF YOU HAVE SOME...

I'M SURE SHE KNOWS.

I THINK I ALREADY KNOW.

I KNOW SHE KNOWS ALREADY.

OH, REALLY?

I'M TORN, BUT...

WHICH ONES ARE YOU TORN BETWEEN?

THE PUPPIES -- I LOVE THE PUPPIES.

WELL, I THINK I'VE ALREADY MADE UP OUR MINDS. [ LAUGHS ]

HEAR WHAT SHE SAID?

"I'VE ALREADY MADE UP OUR MINDS."

[ LAUGHTER ]

WELL, I THINK I'VE ALREADY MADE UP OUR MINDS. [ LAUGHS ]

YEAH, LEAH AND FALKOR.

OH, YEAH! THAT'S AWESOME!

[ LAUGHS ]

Edie: I LOVED FALKOR AND LEAH.

THEY'RE BOTH VERY HAPPY DOGS AND REAL SWEET,

AND THEY BOTH SEEM LIKE THEY MIGHT NEED US,

AND THEY NEED TO STAY TOGETHER.

DID YOU GUYS KNOW, LIKE, INSTANTLY,

LIKE, "OKAY, THESE ARE THE ONES."

Tia: SHE DID.

YEAH? [ LAUGHS ]

Dennis: WE CAME HERE TO FIND THE DOG THAT NEEDED US.

AND LEAH AND FALKOR SAID, "TAKE US HOME."

ALL RIGHT. WELL, LET'S LET'S WALK OUT.

Tia: IF THERE WAS SUCH A THING AS FATE, THIS WAS IT.

IT WAS JUST, LIKE, THE PERFECT MERGING OF FOUR LIVES,

MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR EACH OTHER.

THOSE ARE THE KIND OF ADOPTIONS I COULD DO EVERY DAY, ALL DAY.

-BYE! -THANK YOU SO MUCH.

-IT WAS NICE SEEING YOU. -COME HERE! [ LAUGHS ]

I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU!

I KNOW, SO CUTE, SO CUTE.

BYE!

Tia: YOU KNOW, FOR FALKOR AND LEAH,

HEADING TO TEXAS, YOU KNOW, START OF SOME GREAT THINGS.

THEY'RE GONNA HAVE A GREAT LIFE

WITH TWO OF THE SWEETEST PEOPLE THAT I'VE EVER MET.

BYE! THANK YOU!

THANK Y'ALL.

OH, MY GOD, THAT WAS SO CUTE.

THAT WAS SO CUTE.

A WOMAN WHO WORKS AT A LOCAL HOMELESS SHELTER

IN NEW ORLEANS CONTACTED US ABOUT ONE OF THE WOMEN COMING IN

TO HER PLACE NEEDING HELP WITH HER DOG.

SO I SENT MARIAH TO GO LOOK FOR THE WOMAN AND HER DOG

AS THEY SPENT MOST OF THEIR TIME

UNDER THE OVERPASS ON THE INTERSTATE.

Mariah: OKAY, SO SHE'S PROBABLY, LIKE, RIGHT HERE.

OKAY, I SEE TENTS AND STUFF.

I THINK SITUATIONS THAT RELATE TO SOMEONE THAT'S HOMELESS

AND HAS A DOG, IT'S A SENSITIVE SUBJECT WITH ME,

AND THESE SITUATIONS ARE VERY NEAR AND DEAR TO MY HEART.

IT'S THIS CORNER SOMEWHERE.

I HAVE A LOT OF VERY CLOSE FRIENDS

THAT HAVE BEEN HOMELESS AT SOME POINTS OF THEIR LIVES.

MARCEL WAS HOMELESS FOR A LOT OF HIS LIFE.

JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE IS HOMELESS DOES NOT MEAN

THAT THEY DON'T TAKE THE MOST AMAZING CARE OF THEIR DOGS.

IT'S A VERY HARD SITUATION FOR ANYONE

TO WANT TO GIVE UP THEIR DOG, AND I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS WOMAN

IS IN THE SITUATION THAT SHE'S IN,

BUT I KNOW THAT I WANT TO GO HELP IMMEDIATELY

AND SEE WHAT I CAN DO.

IT'S A WHITE-AND-BLACK PIT BULL WITH FLOPPY EARS.

IT'S A LADY THAT LIVES UNDERNEATH HERE.

SHE ASKED FOR HELP WITH HER DOG, SO I'M TRYING TO FIND HER.

DOWN HERE?

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.

OBVIOUSLY, WHEN YOU'RE HOMELESS, YOU DON'T HAVE AN EXACT ADDRESS.

IT'S JUST A GENERAL AREA, AND A LOT OF TIMES,

THEY'RE GONNA HAVE TO MOVE WHERE THEY'RE STAYING.

[ CELLPHONE CHIMES ]

AFTER I WALKED AROUND FOR A LITTLE WHILE

AND COULDN'T FIND HER, I ACTUALLY ENDED UP

GETTING A TEXT MESSAGE SAYING THAT THE WOMAN

AND HER DOG WERE AT THE SHELTER.

THE SHELTER THAT THIS WOMAN WAS AT IS JUST A DAY SHELTER.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I GET THERE BEFORE THE DAY IS OVER

AND SHE'S GONNA HAVE TO LEAVE.

HI.

HI, BABY.

HI!

IS SHE GONNA BE OKAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW?

YOU ARE CUTE!

I'M MARIAH, BY THE WAY.

HI, BEAUTIFUL!

OH, HELLO!

I'M FROM ENGLAND.

I CAME TO THE STATES 15 YEARS AGO,

AND I'VE BEEN IN NEW ORLEANS FOR THREE YEARS.

DO YOU WANT TO GO SIT SOMEWHERE AND TALK SO YOU CAN TELL ME

MORE ABOUT HER AND EVERYTHING?

SURE.

DOG LOOKS SO HEALTHY AND SO HAPPY.

BUT I COULD SEE IT ON THIS WOMAN'S FACE

THAT SOMETHING WAS NOT OKAY.

WHAT EXACTLY -- SO YOU HAVE TO GO...

GEEZ.

BUT MAIN THING IS MY DOG IS GONNA HAVE A HAPPY LIFE.

AND I COULDN'T THINK OF ANYWHERE BETTER TO DO IT.

'CAUSE SHE'S NOT BEEN INSIDE.

WE'VE BEEN HOMELESS UNDER THE BRIDGE FOR QUITE AWHILE.

Samantha: I HAVE TO GO HOME AND START FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE.

AND IF I COULD TAKE EMMA WITH ME, I WOULD,

BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THERE'S A LOT OF RULES

WHEN IT COMES TO PIT BULLS OVER THERE.

AND... [ SNIFFLES ]

AND I CAN'T TAKE HER.

SHE'S GREAT AROUND KIDS. SHE LOVES TO RUN.

SHE LOVES TO BE AROUND CROWDS OF PEOPLE.

SHE LOVES ATTENTION.

SHE DOES? OKAY.

WHEN I FOUND HER,

SHE'D GIVEN BIRTH TO PUPPIES UNDER THE BRIDGE,

AND THE GUY LEFT HER, AND THE PUPPIES WERE STOLEN.

I'VE BEEN WITH HER EVER SINCE.

AND IT'S REALLY HARD FOR ME.

ABSOLUTELY.

I DON'T JUST -- I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW.

I DIDN'T -- I DON'T WANT TO JUST GIVE UP.

JUST, IT'S NOT LIKE GIVING HER UP.

NO, YOU'RE NOT GIVING HER UP.

SHE'S GONNA BE VERY, VERY, VERY HAPPY.

AND I KNOW THIS IS GONNA BE REALLY HARD.

I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW.

I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU GUYS.

NO, ABSOLUTELY. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL.

Mariah: LIKE, THINKING ABOUT HAVING TO GIVE MY DOG UP...

OH, GOD.

AND THIS WOMAN IS HAVING TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY

TO GO GET MEDICAL

AND ISN'T GONNA HAVE EMMA NEXT TO HER TO HEAL.

I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO HEAL WITHOUT MY DOG,

AND I KNOW SHE PROBABLY FEELS THE SAME WAY.

SO I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT SHE KNEW

THAT EMMA IS GONNA BE CARED FOR AND LOVED

SO THAT SHE COULD GET THROUGH THIS.

SHE'S UP-TO-DATE WITH ALL OF HER HEALTHCARE.

ALL OF HER SHOTS ARE DONE FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR

AND HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVE.

I'M PROBABLY GONNA PUT THIS IN HER CRATE.

THAT WAY, SHE... -YEAH, I HAVE A BLANKET FOR HER.

YOU DO?

IT'S OVER THERE.

I WANT SOMETHING TO PUT IN HER CRATE

THAT KIND OF SMELLS LIKE YOU

'CAUSE I THINK IT'LL HELP HER A LITTLE BIT.

HI! [KISSES] ARE WE GONNA BE BUDDIES?

OH!

[ LAUGHS ]

I LOVE YOU.

HI!

SHE'S SO GRATEFUL.

SHE'S SO SWEET.

I PROMISE WE'LL STAY IN CONTACT.

WE'RE GONNA DO THIS EVERY DAY.

SAMANTHA IS SUCH A BADASS.

SHE STILL FOUND WAYS IN THE LITTLE THAT SHE HAD

TO GIVE THIS DOG THE BEST POSSIBLE LIFE.

AND I THINK THAT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

AND I RESPECT SAMANTHA SO MUCH FOR THAT.

JUST KNOW THAT, LIKE, SHE'S GONNA BE HAPPY,

AND THE BIGGEST THING RIGHT NOW IS YOU GETTING BETTER, SO...

WELL, YOU WANT TO BRING HER WITH ME AND WE'LL GO PUT HER IN...

YEAH.

WE'LL PUT HER IN THERE.

AND TAKE ALL THE TIME THAT YOU NEED.

AND LIKE I SAID, DO YOU -- I KNOW WHEN YOU GET BACK.

IS THERE A WAY FOR YOU TO STAY IN CONTACT WITH ME?

YEAH, ABSOLUTELY. I'VE GOT E-MAIL AND FACEBOOK.

OKAY, THAT WAY, I CAN SEND YOU PICTURES,

AND I'LL WRITE MY NAME DOWN AND YOU CAN FIND ME ON FACEBOOK,

AND I'LL SEND YOU VIDEOS AND PICTURES, OKAY?

-THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH. -OF COURSE.

I LOVE YOU.

Mariah: YOU'RE SO SWEET!

YOU'RE A GOOD GIRL.

I'M JUST IMAGINING HER ALREADY BEING LOVED

BY EVERYONE THAT SHE MEETS,

AND THAT GIVES ME REASSURANCE AND COMFORT,

KNOWING THAT MY DOG IS OKAY

AND I'VE DONE THE BEST THING FOR HER.

Mariah: WANT TO GET IN HERE?

COME HERE, BEAUTIFUL. LOOK, I GOT A TOY FOR YOU.

YOU WANT SOME HELP? [ KISSES ]

I'LL GET THAT BLANKET.

COME ON. [ KISSES ] ONE, TWO, THREE.

[ LAUGHS ]

GOOD GIRL!

I PUT A BONE IN HERE FOR YOU.

OH, SHE LOVES ALL TREATS.

THAT'S FOR YOU.

BONES AND SQUEAKY TOYS AND EVERYTHING.

I KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO A BETTER PLACE.

I'M GONNA WRITE MY NAME DOWN RIGHT NOW, OKAY?

YOU KNOW, WE CAN BOTH HAVE A GOOD LIFE,

EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT TOGETHER.

Mariah: YOU AND I ARE GONNA STAY IN CONTACT,

AND EVERY STEP OF THE WAY,

YOU'RE GONNA KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.

OKAY. THANK YOU.

AND THAT'S MY PHONE NUMBER.

IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, PLEASE CALL ME, OKAY?

THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING ABLE TO SEE

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE NEXT STAGE FOR MY BABY.

SHE'S GONNA BE TAKEN CARE OF, OKAY?

-THANK YOU. -OF COURSE.

Mariah: HI, BEAUTIFUL.

HI!

I MISS HER ALREADY.

Mariah: WE WANTED TO MOVE EMMA

TO ONE OF OUR SATELLITE HOUSES FIRST

BECAUSE WE FIGURED IT WOULD BE EASIER FOR HER TO TRANSITION

BECAUSE IT'S MORE OF A HOME SETTING

AND SHE WOULD CONSTANTLY HAVE PEOPLE AROUND

AND HEAR PEOPLE ALL DAY LONG.

NOT ONLY THAT, THE SATELLITE HOUSE

IS JUST QUIETER THAN THE WAREHOUSES.

SHE'S A LITTLE CHUNK. SHE'S SO SWEET.

[ LAUGHS ]

COME ON. [ KISSES ]

HERE'S EMMA.

WE DIDN'T WANT TO PUT HER NEXT TO OTHER DOGS AT FIRST

JUST BECAUSE IT'D BE A LITTLE BIT TOO MUCH,

AND I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY HOW SHE IS WITH OTHER DOGS YET

AND WANTED TO MAKE SURE

THAT WE WERE DOING EVERYTHING WE COULD TO KEEP HER CALM.

AND THAT'S WHY WE CHOSE TO DO A ROOM BY HERSELF AT FIRST.

COME SEE.

SHE -- JUST SO WHEN WE DO START TRYING TO GET HER HOMED.

SHE'S GREAT WITH KIDS. SHE'S GREAT WITH PEOPLE.

SHE'S ACTUALLY REALLY CAT-FRIENDLY.

SHE SAID WITH DOGS, IT'S JUST LIKE SHE CAN WALK PAST DOGS,

BUT SHE DOESN'T WANT TO BE, LIKE, IN THEIR FACE OR ANYTHING.

SHE'S, LIKE -- SHE'S SUPER, LIKE,

AS SOON AS SHE CALMS DOWN HERE, SHE JUST CLIMBS IN YOUR LAP

AND JUST, LIKE, HAS TO BE ON YOU.

AWW!

SHE'S VERY AFFECTIONATE.

ONE THING THAT I MADE SURE -- WE BROUGHT EMMA'S BLANKET

INSIDE THAT SMELLED LIKE HER MOM AND PUT IT IN HER CRATE.

THAT WAY, SHE COULD HAVE THE SMELL OF SAMANTHA, STILL,

AND HOPEFULLY IT'LL GIVE HER SOME SORT OF COMFORT.

SHE'S PROBABLY GONNA BE A LITTLE BIT ANXIOUS

AT FIRST, THE FIRST FEW DAYS,

BECAUSE SHE'S NEVER BEEN SEPARATED FROM A HUMAN.

THEY LITERALLY HAVEN'T BEEN SEPARATED ONCE...

DANG.

...SINCE SHE'S GOTTEN HER.

LIKE 24 HOURS A DAY, THEY'RE TOGETHER.

SO THIS IS GONNA BE ROUGH ON HER.

MOST OF THE DOGS THAT I HAVE RESCUED

FROM SOMEONE THAT'S HOMELESS

END UP BEING BETTER-BEHAVED DOGS THAN OTHER DOGS THAT WE GET.

SO HOPEFULLY, EMMA BEING IN THIS HOUSE, SHE WILL DO WELL.

YOU WANT TO GO IN YOUR HOUSE? [ TAPS ]

ALL RIGHT, COME HERE, MY LOVE.

COME ON, MY SWEET ANGEL.

GOOD GIRL!

AS OF RIGHT NOW, ALL THAT WE CAN DO IS GIVE EMMA

SOME TIME TO DECOMPRESS

AND THEN REALLY FIGURE OUT WHAT SHE NEEDS

AND WHAT SHE WANTS OUT OF LIFE

AND TRY AND FIND THE BEST POSSIBLE HOME FOR HER.

OH, GLENN.

OOH, GLENN'S READY.

GLENN'S NAKED.

GLENN!

HI, BUDDY.

OH, MY GOD, HIS BUTT.

Lizzy: TODAY, WE ARE TAKING GLENN TO THE VET

TO HAVE HIS SKIN LOOKED AT AND TO HAVE HIS DEWCLAWS REMOVED.

OH, MY GOD, HE'S SO CUTE.

EVEN THOUGH GLENN'S SKIN IS SO ITCHY,

HE'S JUST THE TYPE OF DOG THAT IS HAPPY ALL THE TIME.

-HEY! -HI!

GLENN'S SKIN ISSUES ARE MAKING HIM REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE,

AND IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO SHOW HIM

TO POTENTIAL ADOPTERS IN THIS CONDITION.

SO HOPEFULLY THE VET HAS A SOLUTION FOR GLENN.

THAT'S GLENN.

[ BABY COOS ]

OH.

[ LAUGHS ]

ALL RIGHT, Y'ALL WANT TO GO BACK?

YEAH.

ALL RIGHT. YOU WANT TO GET UP, BIG MAN?

OH, GLENN, GLENN.

Lizzy: OH, THIS IS LIKE WHAT I WENT THROUGH,

TRYING TO PUT HIM IN THE CRATE.

I KNOW. HE'S, LIKE, NOT INTO BEING, LIKE, HELD.

HEY.

HERE YOU GO. [GASPS] WHAT'S THAT?

YEAH. [LAUGHS] YOU WANT TO FEED HIM?

Dr. Samantha: HE WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS

WHEN I WAS PICKING HIM UP ON THE TABLE,

SO WE GAVE GLENN SOME PEANUT BUTTER

JUST TO MAKE HIM FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE.

IT'S DEFINITELY A DISTRACTION AND ALSO JUST GIVES THEM

MORE OF A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE WHEN THEY'RE AT THE VET.

HEY, GLENN. DID YOU LIKE YOUR PEANUT BUTTER? WAS IT GOOD?

HIS DEWCLAWS ARE, LIKE, OUT OF CONTROL.

THEY ACTUALLY DON'T LOOK THAT BAD RIGHT NOW,

BUT THERE'S TIMES WHEN THEY'RE, LIKE, SWOLLEN.

YOU KNOW, THE DEWCLAWS, THANKFULLY, THIS IS THE KIND

THAT DOESN'T REALLY HAVE THE BONE IN HERE.

YEAH.

THIS ONE HAS, LIKE, A HALF OF A BONE, KIND OF.

THIS ONE'S COMPLETELY DANGLY, SO IT'S REALLY JUST GONNA BE

SCISSORS?

SNIP, SNIP.

-OH, THAT'S GONNA BE EASY. -IT'S GONNA BE EASY.

THIS ONE'S A LITTLE BIT MORE ATTACHED,

BUT I'LL JUST SNEAK UNDERNEATH IT WITH A BLADE.

HIS DEWCLAWS ARE NOT REALLY ATTACHED TO THE FOOT.

WE DEFINITELY WANT TO GET THE DEWCLAWS REMOVED

SO THAT, YOU KNOW, WHEN HE GOES TO HIS NEXT HOME,

HE WON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THOSE GETTING CAUGHT ON THINGS

OR BECOMING PAINFUL.

Dr. Samantha: IT'S LIKE HE DOESN'T REALLY HAVE

MUCH OF AN INFECTION,

JUST KIND OF A GENERALIZED INFLAMMATION.

I SUSPECTED AN ALLERGY WAS A COMPONENT IN HIS SKIN ISSUES.

A LOT OF TIMES IN NEW ORLEANS, WE SEE AN ALLERGY TO FLEAS.

AND THEN WE ALSO SEE A LOT OF ALLERGIES

TO DIFFERENT POLLENS AND DUST IN THE ENVIRONMENT.

DO YOU FIND HIM TO BE ITCHY?

OH, YEAH.

ITCHY? OKAY.

I COULDN'T EVEN LOAD HIM UP BECAUSE HE WAS TRYING TO

SCRATCH HIMSELF ON THE GROUND.

OKAY, YEAH. THEN IT'S APOQUEL TIME, FOR SURE.

FOR GLENN, WE ARE DEFINITELY RECOMMENDING HE BE ON SOME

MEDICATED BATHS TO HELP OUT WITH THE SKIN, SOME TOPICAL THERAPY.

I ALSO WANT TO GET HIM STARTED ON A GOOD BROAD-SPECTRUM

ALLERGY-PREVENTION MEDICATION CALLED APOQUEL,

WHICH TRIES TO HELP PREVENT THE ALLERGY BEFORE IT EVEN STARTS.

I'LL PROBABLY CAUTERIZE THESE LITTLE GUYS THAT ARE

JUST, LIKE, BARELY ATTACHED.

AND THEN THIS ONE, I'LL PROBABLY JUST SNIP WITH THE DEWCLAWS.

HE HAD SOME LITTLE GROWTHS OFF OF THE SKIN.

COULD BE SOME SCAR TISSUE.

COULD BE LIKE A LITTLE TUMOR GOING ON.

SO I DEFINITELY WANT TO GO AHEAD AND REMOVE ALL THOSE GROWTHS

AND SEND ANY OF THEM TO THE LAB THAT ARE QUESTIONABLE

TO MAKE SURE THERE'S NOTHING MORE SERIOUS GOING ON.

WE'RE ALSO GONNA GO AHEAD AND NEUTER GLENN

WHILE HE'S UNDER ANESTHESIA WITH US.

I'M REALLY HOPING TO SHOW HIM IN A MEET-AND-GREET FAIRLY SOON.

SO HE'S PROBABLY STILL GONNA HAVE A BABOON BUTT, RIGHT?

YEAH, I MEAN, I DON'T THINK THAT ALL OF HIS SKIN

WILL EVER GET TOTALLY NORMAL.

[ CHUCKLES ]

THAT'S OKAY.

I THINK IT'S CUTE.

[ LAUGHS ]

SOME OF THIS IS KIND OF IT IS WHAT IT IS.

WE JUST HAVE TO HOPE THAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK IT'S...

YEAH, YEAH.

...CUTE.

OTHER THAN THAT, HE LOOKS REALLY GOOD.

GOOD JOB, GLENN.

HIS TAIL DOESN'T STOP WAGGING.

Lizzy: THE NEXT STEP FOR GLENN IS TO GET HIM OVER FOR SURGERY

TO HAVE HIS DEWCLAWS AND HIS GROWTHS REMOVED.

AND HOPEFULLY, THERE'S NO COMPLICATIONS

AND WE CAN START FINDING A POTENTIAL FAMILY FOR HIM.

BYE-BYE!

Lizzy: BUT YOU GOT TO WALK WITH HIM, THOUGH. GOOD JOB.

THIS IS REGINA GEORGE.

SHE IS ABOUT 4 YEARS OLD.

SHE IS A VERY SWEET DOG.

SHE LOVES KIDS.

SHE DOESN'T DO VERY WELL WITH OTHER DOGS,

BUT SHE IS MANAGEABLE.

YOU ARE SO CUTE.

REGINA IS A VERY SHY DOG, BUT SHE DOES LOVE PEOPLE.

SHE SHOULD BE IN A QUIET HOME.

[ SMOOCHING ]

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING REGINA GEORGE

OR DONATING TO VILLALOBOS, GO TO animalplanet.com/pitbulls.

[ DOG BARKS ]

[ CAR HORN HONKS ]

Dr. Samantha: ALL RIGHT, Y'ALL READY FOR GLENN?

COME ON. LET'S GO GET GLENN.

LOOK!

GLENN JUST HAD SURGERY

TO REMOVE SOME GROWTHS AND HIS DEWCLAWS,

AND TODAY WE ARE HERE TO PICK HIM UP.

GLENN! THAT'S YOUR FRIEND.

AS LONG AS THERE WEREN'T ANY COMPLICATIONS

WITH GLENN'S SURGERY,

WE'RE HOPING THAT HIS SKIN IS GONNA START IMPROVING

AND THAT WE CAN START SHOWING HIM TO POTENTIAL ADOPTERS.

SO, HE DID REALLY GOOD. LOOK HOW MUCH -- I FEEL LIKE...

OH, MY GOD, IT LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER...

IT'S SO MUCH SMOOTHER, RIGHT?

THE SKIN REALLY DOES LOOK A LOT BETTER.

YES.

THE SURGERIES WENT REALLY WELL WITH GLENN.

NO CONCERNS AT ALL.

AND THANKFULLY, ALL THE NODULAR GROWTHS

THAT WE REMOVED FROM GLENN'S BACKSIDE

CAME BACK AS BENIGN OR NOT CANCEROUS.

IT DOES LOOK LIKE GLENN'S SKIN CONDITION IS PRETTY CHRONIC,

SO SOME OF THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE TO THE SKIN,

AND IT MAY NOT FULLY REGROW HAIR OR BE COMPLETELY NORMAL.

AND OVER TIME, HOPEFULLY, ON THE ALLERGY MEDICATIONS,

HIS COAT AND SKIN WILL CONTINUE TO IMPROVE.

NO REAL CONCERNS WITH HIM, SO...

HE DID GOOD.

IT'S GLENN!

DID YOU MISS HIM?

DID YOU MISS YOUR FRIEND?

[ LAUGHS ]

THAT'S TOO BIG OF A KISS, HUH? [ LAUGHS ]

DO YOU WANT TO WALK GLENN OUT?

NOT ALL DOGS ARE PERFECT-LOOKING,

BUT I'M JUST HOPING THAT THAT SPECIAL ADOPTER COMES ALONG

AND SEES HOW SPECIAL GLENN IS ON THE INSIDE

AND HOW PERFECT HE IS IN HIS OWN WAY.

BYE, GLENN!

[ BARKING ]

[ TOY SQUEAKS ]

EMMA. [ LAUGHS ]

YOU LIKE THIS?

NO, YOU DON'T LIKE THE FOX?

SO, THE DAY THAT WE GOT EMMA

WE BROUGHT HER TO ONE OF OUR SATELLITE HOUSES

THINKING THAT IT WOULD BE MORE CALMING FOR HER

THAN BEING AT ONE OF OUR WAREHOUSES.

ANYTIME WE'VE TAKEN DOGS THAT'S BEEN WITH SOMEONE

THAT'S HOMELESS, THE DOGS NORMALLY FLIP OUT

BECAUSE THEY'VE NEVER BEEN AWAY FROM THEIR OWNERS.

THESE DOGS ARE TREATED SO WELL WHEN THEY'RE WITH THEIR OWNERS

24 HOURS, AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, THEY'RE NOT.

EMMA JUST SEEMED REALLY ANXIOUS WHEN SHE WAS AT THE B&B

AND WAS CRYING A LOT, AND SHE WAS SAD.

HER HUMAN AND HER SEPARATED,

AND SHE WAS SOMEWHERE REALLY QUIET.

AND SHE'S NOT USED TO BEING IN A NORMAL HOME ENVIRONMENT.

THAT'S WHY WE HAD TO TAKE HER OUT OF THE B&B

AND BRING HER TO THE WAREHOUSE.

AS SOON AS WE GOT OVER HERE, SHE JUST, LIKE,

CALMED DOWN A LOT MORE

AND STARTED DOING A LOT BETTER, WHICH MAKES ME HAPPY.

I MEAN, IT'S JUST DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS 'CAUSE, LIKE --

SHE LIKES TO SOCIALIZE.

AFTER MOVING HER TO OUR MAIN WAREHOUSE,

SHE ACTUALLY STARTED DOING WAY BETTER THAN ANYWHERE ELSE.

SHE'S USED TO THE COMMOTION OF BEING OUT ON THE STREET

AND PEOPLE WALKING AROUND EVERYWHERE,

AND I THINK THAT GAVE HER SOME NORMALCY, SO...

SHE'S LIKE ME. SHE LIKES THE MADNESS.

[ CHUCKLES ]

ARE YOU HAPPY? [ KISSES ]

YEAH, SHE IS. SHE'S READY.

OH, MY SWEET GIRL.

WITH THAT, ARE WE JUST KIND OF HOLDING ON TO HER FOR AWHILE?

WE'RE GONNA TRY AND GET HER A HOME.

I TOLD SAMANTHA -- I GAVE HER MY INFORMATION.

I TOLD HER I WOULD SEND HER PICTURES OF EMMA

AND STUFF TO KEEP HER UPDATED.

KNOWING THAT I CAN WRITE SAMANTHA

AFTER SEEING EMMA TODAY

AND TELL HER, LIKE, SHE'S DOING GREAT NOW

MAKES MY HEART FEEL A LITTLE BIT BETTER.

ARE YOU SMILING, EM?

OH!

SEE? [ LAUGHS ]

I CAN'T EVEN TAKE A DANG PICTURE.

MWAH! SWEET BABY.

I WANT TO PUSH TO GET EMMA A HOME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

SHE IS AN AMAZING, AMAZING DOG.

AND WHAT BETTER THING TO SEND SAMANTHA

THAN EMMA LAYING ON A COUCH WITH A FAMILY?

SO I REALLY WANT TO PUSH FOR THIS

TO HAPPEN SOONER THAN LATER,

AND HOPEFULLY, EMMA WILL HAVE HER FOREVER HOME.

THAT WAS A NICE PICTURE, RIGHT, EM?

Mariah: OH, WAIT. WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO PUT THIS BACK.

Tania: YEAH, IT FITS FINE.

ALL RIGHT, WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO WALK THEM OUT TOGETHER, HUH?

OH, YEAH, IT'D PROBABLY BE BEST TO HAVE BOTH OF THEM.

Tia: OH, MY GOD, LOOK AT HER!

[ LAUGHTER ]

Tia: RECENTLY, WE HAD FORMER ADOPTERS EDIE AND DENNIS

FALL IN LOVE WITH TWO OF OUR DOGS, FALKOR AND LEAH.

COMING OUT!

Mariah: LEAH HAS TO BE WITH FALKOR.

IT'S NOT THAT SHE KIND OF NEEDS HIM.

SHE CANNOT BE WITHOUT HIM.

SHE WON'T EVEN WALK UNLESS SHE CAN SEE HIM.

GOD! COME ON. UP, UP.

IT'S A FRIGGIN' WORKOUT WALKING THIS DOG.

SO HAVING EDIE AND DENNIS WANT A PAIR IS

REALLY, REALLY SPECIAL.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO. WE GOT AN EIGHT-HOUR DRIVE.

ALL RIGHT, SEE YOU LATER, BABE. ONE MORE HUG.

BYE-BYE!

LOVE YOU. BYE.

HOPEFULLY, EVERYTHING GOES WELL AT THE HOME CHECK

AND FALKOR AND LEAH WILL HAVE FOUND THEIR FOREVER HOME.

BYE, GUYS!

[ HORN BLARES ]

I'M ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW THESE TWO GONNA DO, MAN.

WE GETTING CLOSE NOW.

LEAH IS REALLY, REALLY RELIANT ON FALKOR FOR HER CONFIDENCE.

EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THESE ADOPTERS ARE AMAZING

AND THEY'VE ADOPTED FROM US BEFORE,

IT'S STILL A LOT FOR ANYONE TO TAKE ON,

AND I WANT TO REALLY MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE READY FOR THAT.

ALL RIGHT, I THINK THIS IS IT RIGHT HERE.

OH, MY GOD, LOOK AT THIS.

TODAY, WE ARE IN TEXAS DOING LEAH AND FALKOR'S HOME CHECK.

HI. OH, MY GOD. I HAVE TO SAY HI.

[ DENNIS LAUGHS ]

HOW ARE YOU?

Edie: HI. HOW ARE YOU?

-GOOD. HOW YOU DOING? -OH, MISSED YOU GUYS.

WE'RE REALLY EXCITED FOR LEAH AND FALKOR TO BE HERE.

I CAN'T WAIT FOR THEM TO BE IN THEIR HOME AND LOVE ON THEM.

[ LAUGHS ] AND PET THEM.

AND GIVE THEM A GREAT LIFE.

Dennis: COME ON. WELCOME, WELCOME.

Edie: HAVE A SEAT.

PREPARING FOR TWO DOGS AS OPPOSED TO ONE SENIOR

THAT WE HAD PREVIOUSLY, WE HAVE DOUBLED EVERYTHING.

DOUBLE THE CRATES, DOUBLE THE BOWLS,

DOUBLE THE BEDS, DOUBLE THE BLANKETS.

SO WE'RE JUST OVERWHELMED AND JUST READY.

PLUS, TODAY'S MY BIRTHDAY, AND LEAH AND FALKOR

ARE GONNA BE THE MOST AMAZING ULTIMATE BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER.

I DEFINITELY REMEMBER YOUR BACKYARD PERFECTLY.

DO YOU?

Dennis: WE KEEP IT LOCKED.

OKAY, I WAS GONNA SAY, JUST MAKE SURE YOU GUYS LOCK IT.

-YEAH, THE LOCK'S RIGHT THERE. -PERFECT.

YEAH, THAT WAS FROM MY SON AND HIS WIFE.

IT'S SO CUTE!

THEY SAID THAT YOU'D NEED SOMETHING THERE.

Mariah: IT'S REALLY COMFORTING AND NICE KNOWING

THAT NOT ONLY ARE EDIE AND DENNIS EXCITED,

BUT EVERYONE IN THEIR FAMILY IS SO SUPPORTIVE OF THEM

BRINGING FALKOR AND LEAH INTO THIS FAMILY.

HIM AND I CAN GO GET THE DOGS.

I'LL BRING THEM BACK HERE FIRST AND DO THAT, AND THEN WE CAN

GO INSIDE AND WORK THROUGH ANY OTHER CONCERNS WE HAVE.

-OKAY. -LET'S GO GRAB THEM REAL QUICK.

EDIE AND DENNIS ARE DEFINITELY PREPARED

TO TAKE ON LEAH AND FALKOR.

THEY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND

TO MAKE SURE THESE DOGS ARE GONNA BE SAFE,

SO TONY AND I ARE BOTH REALLY EXCITED

TO ACTUALLY SEE THE DOGS IN THE BACKYARD.

Tony: GOOD GIRL.

Mariah: OKAY.

YOU NERVOUS?

MNH-MNH. I'M EXCITED.

Tony: CHECKING ON HER BROTHER.

Mariah: OKAY.

LET'S GO.

Dennis: I'M READY FOR ANOTHER HUG.

SHE GAVE ME A HUG THAT ONE DAY AND KNOCKED ME ON MY TUSH.

[ LAUGHS ]

I'M SO EXCITED.

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM COME UP THE WALK THROUGH THE GATE.

I'M READY FOR SUGARS AND TAIL WAGS

IS WHAT I WANT FOR MY BIRTHDAY, AND I'M READY FOR IT.

Tony: BE LIKE, "WHERE WE AT? THIS MY HOUSE?"

PUPPIES.

HI, BUDDY.

HI!

HI, GIRLFRIEND.

Mariah: WHO'S THAT?

LOOK HOW PRETTY!

[ INDISTINCT CHATTER ]

Edie: I WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE THEM WHEN THEY GOT HERE.

THEY WERE SO EXCITED TO JUST RUN AROUND THE YARD,

SO HAPPY TO SMELL EVERYTHING, CHECK EVERYTHING OUT.

YEAH, YOU CAN DO THAT.

Mariah: "WHAT IS ALL THIS?"

Dennis: OH, TO WATCH THEM EXPLORE EVERYTHING

AND MAKE IT ALL THEIRS AND TAKE IT ALL IN,

THAT WAS VERY EXCITING.

Mariah: ALL RIGHT. WAIT, COME HERE.

NEW ORLEANS TRADITION.

I HAVE TO PIN A DOLLAR ON YOU. -UH-OH.

Mariah: IN NEW ORLEANS, WE HAVE A TRADITION

THAT YOU PIN A DOLLAR ON WHOEVER'S BIRTHDAY IT IS,

AND ALL DAY LONG, PEOPLE PIN MONEY TO YOU.

ALL RIGHT, GO RUN AROUND.

HI, PUPPIES!

-HI. -THAT'S FOR YOU.

Mariah: THERE WE GO.

THAT'S GONNA BE YOUR POOL.

[ LAUGHS ]

Dennis: LEAH AND FALKOR COMING TODAY,

IT'S LIKE BRINGING A BABY HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL.

SO TODAY'S THEIR BIRTHDAY, AND TO SHARE THEIR BIRTHDAY

ON MY BIRTHDAY, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY.

IT'S Y'ALL'S BIRTHDAY.

Mariah: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY.

I GOT YOU THIS HOUSE.

I GOT YOU A HOUSE AND A YARD. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Edie: LEAH AND FALKOR ARE GONNA HAVE A GREAT LIFE HERE.

IT MAKES ME FEEL REALLY HAPPY THAT THEY'RE HAPPY.

THERE WE GO. LOOK AT HIM SMILE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW HE'S STARTING TO FIGURE IT OUT.

GOOD BOY!

HI, BABY.

I HAVE A FEELING THIS IS -- THE CONNECTION HAPPENED ALREADY.

SHE'S GONNA BE ON TOP OF YOU ALL THE TIME,

AND HE'S GONNA BE ON TOP OF HIM.

Mariah: JUST WATCHING EDIE AND DENNIS AROUND THESE TWO DOGS

MAKES MY HEART WANT TO EXPLODE, HONESTLY.

I COULDN'T HAVE PICKED TWO BETTER ADOPTERS

FOR LEAH AND FALKOR,

AND I AM SO GLAD THAT THEY CAME BACK TO ADOPT.

SHE'S JUST STARING IN THE HOUSE.

HE'S READY TO GO IN.

-DID Y'ALL SEE THAT DOGGY DOOR? -OH, ARE YOU GONNA DO IT?

Dennis: YEAH.

Edie: YOU GONNA GO IN?

[ INDISTINCT CHATTER ]

GO IN THERE.

GO IN.

Mariah: OH, HE DID IT! [ LAUGHS ]

Tony: AND SHE'S RIGHT BY HIM.

[ LAUGHTER ]

Edie: YAY! GO IN.

-Dennis: GO IN THERE. -GOOD GIRL!

GOOD!

[ DENNIS LAUGHS ]

THAT WAS SO IMPRESSIVE!

THAT WAS AMAZING.

Mariah: NOT ALL DOGS USE DOGGIE DOORS,

BUT THE ONES THAT DO SOMETIMES CAN TAKE A MINUTE,

SO JUST SEEING THESE TWO DOGS THAT DO HAVE A LOT OF ISSUES

THAT THEY HAVE TO WORK THROUGH ALREADY THIS CONFIDENT AND CALM,

I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW THEY'RE GONNA BE

IN EVEN A WEEK FROM NOW.

Edie: YOU'RE SO SWEET. LOOK AT YOU.

HI! ARE YOU HOME?

GOOD BOY!

OH. [ BLOWS RASPBERRY ]

AND WE'RE DOWN. OH!

Tony: HE'S SUCH A LOVE BUG, TOO.

IT'S EXHILARATING TO SEE THAT THEY CAN BE HAPPY

AND HAVE THEIR FOREVER HOME AND, YOU KNOW, NO MORE CAGES,

ONLY COUCHES.

LOOK. SEE? THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING.

SEE? THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.

SHE DOES THAT BECAUSE OF ATTENTION. GO WITH YOUR MOTHER.

I KNOW. THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.

TWO PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU TWO.

IT'S TAKING FOUR OF US RIGHT NOW. GEEZ.

THESE DOGS ARE SUCH A GREAT PAIR,

AND WITH THEIR ATTACHMENT THAT THEY DO HAVE FOR EACH OTHER,

THEY NEED MORE AND MORE AND MORE REASSURANCE.

AND WE HAVE NOTHING BUT BOATLOADS OF IT FOR THEM.

YOU ARE SO JEALOUS!

COME HERE!

WHAT, WHAT, WHAT?

OH, MY GOODNESS.

Mariah: BY THE TIME WE WERE GETTING CLOSER TO LEAVE,

LEAH WAS JUST CALMING DOWN,

AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO SEE.

I JUST DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD HAPPEN SO FAST.

SO THIS IS DEFINITELY WHERE LEAH AND FALKOR ARE SUPPOSED TO BE.

SO, I'M GONNA GIVE YOU GUYS THE LEASHES.

Edie: I GOT HIM.

CALL US IF YOU GUYS NEED ANYTHING. I'M REALLY HAPPY.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT IF EDIE AND DENNIS

HADN'T COME TO ADOPT LEAH AND FALKOR,

THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY HARD FOR US

TO FIND THESE TWO DOGS HOMES.

BUT EDIE AND DENNIS ARE PERFECT FOR THESE DOGS,

AND I'M REALLY THANKFUL FOR THEM.

-HAPPY BIRTHDAY. -WE'LL SEE Y'ALL SOON.

LOVE Y'ALL.

IT'S A BIG BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR Y'ALL.

OH, HE WANTS TO GO.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

IT'S A BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR THESE TWO, TOO, THOUGH.

THANK Y'ALL.

Mariah: BYE.

Edie: I MISS CHALMETTE A LOT, BUT THESE DOGS ARE SO GREAT.

I'M SO GLAD THAT WE GOT THEM. I'M SO GLAD THEY'RE HERE.

IT'S GONNA BE A GREAT LIFE.

Mariah: THAT IS SO SWEET.

Tony: SO MUCH JOY. [ LAUGHS ]
