The Villalobos Crew
Tia's oldest daughter has had difficulties since she was a child. Within the first five years of Tania's life, both her father and godmother were, on separate occasions, victims of tragic injuries that led to her father's paralysis and her godmother's death. Those tragedies, as well as losing her half-brother years later in a gang-related shooting, have forced Tania to develop a tough skin. Despite this, she maintains a dry and wicked sense of humor.
An avid animal lover, she has been surrounded by wolves and other exotic animals at an early age since she has worked as an animal trainer for movies and television. Now, hoping to follow in her mother's footsteps, Tania wants to take a more active role at the ranch, starting with administering canine medication to nearly 200 dogs that live at Villalobos. She has three dogs of her own, all rescues that came through Villalobos' doors – Bluie, a huge "blue" pit; Wedgie, a French bulldog with major attitude; and Hollywood, a nutty English bull terrier. Tania also has a bird named Cash, whose loud call sounds like a cell-phone ringtone.
