Fresno Bully Rescue: Rusty

by Terese Shaw

Returning a dog to Fresno Bully Rescue is something that we don't hear about often. This may be because there are feelings of guilt or the returning adopters are criticized by friends, neighbors, or even family members. But dogs get returned often and sometimes it's for the best. The scenarios when thinking about returning a dog are endless, and it's nobody's business to judge. With that being said, let's talk about a good boy, Rusty, that's been returned twice.

We have one such amazing soul at Fresno Bully Rescue and his name is Roscoe.

If you don’t work in rescue, you may not be aware, but over the last year especially, the number of homeless pets and pets being returned to shelters and rescues is in numbers far above our “normal” crisis levels. This is enough to make even the veteran rescue and/or shelter worker feel disheartened, heartbroken, defeated, and guilty.

We know it is unfair, but this world, unfortunately, judges books by their covers. That’s an issue Fresno Bully Rescue (FBR) runs up against as a breed specific rescue. FBR rescues predominately bully breed dogs (American Pitbull Terriers, American Bulldogs, American Bullies, etc.). FBR is also one of, if not the only, rescue shelter for these types of dogs in the entire state of California that has a brick and mortar facility and adoption center.

What exactly is a Pitbull? The fact is that there is no such thing as a “full-blooded" Pitbull. The majority of dogs labeled as Pitbulls are mixed breed dogs, however they are labeled a Pitbull due to a few of the following characteristics. A large broad head, eyes that set low on the skull and well apart, short hair, muscular build, and some physical traits commonly found in bully types such as a Bulldog or an American Pitbull Terrier.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Tex & Bully Boo Walk

At Fresno Bully Rescue we are all about community. There are so many different communities other than just the collective community you think of when you think about the area you live in or the areas that we service for adoption. Being at community events in our area and in fact up and down the state help people understand who we are, what we do, and why we love bully breeds so much.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Pilgrim

When you become involved in rescue, if you didn’t know it before, you quickly learn that life isn’t fair and people can be superficial. Black dogs and cats for instance, whether the lack of interesting markings or stigma with historical perceptions of witches with black animals, etc., are statistically adopted less often than their counterparts.
