Animal Planet Unleashes New Season of Pit Boss January 5th

The new year is almost here, and with it comes a new season of an Animal Planet favorite, Pit Boss.

On January 5th fans of the man on a mission can follow Shorty Rossi and his canine companion Hercules as they hit the road in order to clear a path to a brighter tomorrow for our barking buddies who are dogged by prejudice. (A celebrity speaker for Amazing Pet Expos, the Pit Boss star will once again meet fans, sign autographs and take his message to the masses in 2013.)

The camera will also capture all the action at Shortywood Productions, which features familiar faces Ashley, Ronald and Sebastian as well as new assistant, Christian. TV viewers will see Shorty return from his tour to face to internal angst amongst the ranks, and watch as the Pit Boss plans to partner with a local kennel to help save more Pit Bulls.

Make a New Year’s resolution to tune in to new episodes of Pit Boss, which will be unleashed on Animal Planet January 5th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Be sure to visit an Amazing Pet Expo near you in 2013 to meet Shorty and Hercules in person!
