As most folks are aware, Fresno Bully Rescue is a mostly shelter based, meaning all of our dogs live at our facility. Puppies do not live at the shelter so this dictates that our wonderful fosters generally care for puppies only. Our current nationwide crisis has forced us all to stay home and shelter in place, meaning extra time to hang out at home. So, as everything has slowed down and folks are home, some have opened their homes and hearts to a dog in need and are fostering.One of the lucky gals enjoying the foster life is Lazzie, a five-year-old medium-sized blue and white female. Lazzie was found by a good Samaritan as a stray, and even though she was spayed with a microchip, the information on the chip was sadly no longer valid. They knew immediately that she was extremely ill and not having the means to get her the care she needed they reached out to FBR. After some love and care under our wings, she healed nicely, and while she is waiting for her forever home, she has found a temporary spot in a wonderful foster home. We always suspected she was someone’s family dog, and she has proven us right! She is amazing with kids of all ages, house trained, and wonderful on leash. She is dog social, but prefers smaller dogs really. In the words of her foster mom, she is a bundle of happiness and love. She is very kind a mellow, and just snuggles and love in return. She is your constant companion; she loves sitting outside with you, and when your ready to go inside, so is she. She is basically like a large house cat because she likes to sleep, lol, she will truly bring joy to your heart. Another fortunate dog waiting for her forever home is Lacey. A stunning white and fawn medium sized six-year-old female. Lacey was originally adopted through FBR as a puppy and, unfortunately, returned six years later, through no fault of her own. Her foster family consists of an infant and a very active two-year-old child. Since day one her child foster has fed, given medication to, played and slept with Lacey. She has even helped work with commands, and knows how to tell Lacey “go to bed” which is the command to go hang out on her dog bed. Lacey is totally house and crate trained, but will need to be your only pet. Her foster mom let us know that no one should be fooled by Lacey’s age, she is full of energy and knows what it’s like to be one of the kids. She’s kind, caring, and patient with the kids, that includes cleaning up messes when they are done, of course. She loves to cuddle and is definitely a typical Pitbull that doesn’t know her size and wants to lay in your lap. She is just a fantastic dog.
