Question Tener and the personal "a"

Is "tener" the only verb that does not use the personal "a" for direct objects?
- Tengo dos tíos.
- Ella tiene amigas en Perú.

Is there a specific reason for "tener" not using the personal "a", or is it "just one of those things"?

Específicamente quiero recibir ayuda con el español de latinoamerica. ¡Muchísimas gracias!
