'Pit Bulls & Parolees' (Animal Planet)

Tragedy hits close to home this episode as Tia Torres' adopted son, Kanani Chock, is part of a motorcycle accident that puts him straight in the hospital, fighting for his life. Tia Torres and the rest of the Villalobos family all rally to help Kanani through this difficult time as best they can. Even in times of tragedy, however, life moves on, and Lizzy and Earl find a hound that has been lost in a parking lot, while a new potential adopter is a marine who is looking to take home a buddy for life.

While it's been a while since Kanani Chock was seen on the show, he's still an important member of the Torres family. He and his brother, Keli'l Chock, both grew up in Hawaii before they were adopted by Tia Torres, becoming part of a unique, dog-loving family for life. Kanani has had his own run-ins with the law as a parolee, with his last reported arrest happening in 2007, but he's since moved his priorities on to other interests. One of those interests is particularly dangerous and might have been what landed him in the hospital in the first place: his love for motorcycle stunts. It might just have been one stunt too many, and the Villalobos team and the Torres family will do all they can to ensure Kanani's quick recovery.

Back at the Villalobos Rescue Center, however, new dogs are still being rescued, and potential adopters are still coming in to find a new companion to take home with them. While Lizzy and Earl rescue a hound dog who has been discovered wandering around a parking lot, a marine hopes to find a companion he can call his "forever friend". The Villalobos team has a good track record in terms of finding adopters a companion they will love for life, so the marine is sure to go home happy.

The official synopsis for the episode reads, "When Kanani is in a serious motorcycle accident, Tia and the Villalobos crew must band together to ensure him a speedy recovery; a retired Marine visits the center to find a forever fur-friend; Lizzy and Earl rescue a hound found in a parking lot."
