Kelly and Hyrum Lai always knew their picture-perfect life together would include a dog. They adopted an adorable Lab puppy named Holly, but early on Holly began displaying disturbing behavior - food aggression. The Lai's biggest concern is for their 18-month old son Griffin, who they fear could be bitten just for having food in his hand, so Cesar is their last hope to help Holly before they make the hard decision to send her away. Cesar's next case brings him to a washed out river bottom where dozens of society's neediest and most forgotten live. Pregnant and homeless, Lenie Pictou has the amazing opportunity to move into a newly opened women's shelter that will take both her and her pit bull, Tucker. The only problem is that Tucker has become very protective of Lenie as a result of living at the river bottom. Will Cesar be able to help both dog and owner make a positive change in their lives?
