It’s hard to imagine how anyone could mistreat a four-legged friend. They are such loving and loyal companions. Yet, all too often we hear of Pitbulls who are abused, neglected, and abandoned. Some of the lucky ones find their way to rescues where they are given a second chance at a happy ending and can be adopted into good, loving homes.

Let’s face it, most of us are average looking. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but most of us will never be famous models or actors. Where we can be above average and even experts, is our “inside.” Most of us “average” looking people do above average things that positively affect our friends, family, and community and can possess above average strength, intelligence, compassion, and heart. It’s not only humans that fall into this category.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Karma

IN THE June 19 ISSUE

SECTIONS

Let’s talk about the pros and cons of adopting a senior versus a younger dog or puppy. Everybody loves puppies, I get it. I love puppies, you love puppies, your best friend just got a new puppy, and you’re beside yourself with jealousy. It makes sense the default choice when adopting a new dog is to go for the younger pup, however, you may be surprised by how rewarding it can be to adopt an adult dog, a senior dog to be exact.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Phyllis

IN THE October 17 ISSUE

FROM THE 2020 Articles,

SECTIONS

by Becky Holly


Recently I was helping out at the emergency shelter for family animals displaced by the Creek Fire when an elderly gentleman arrived looking very tired and broken. He asked for help retrieving his dog, Phyllis, from his vehicle. Because Phyllis was a Pit Bull and the owner told shelter staff she was hard to handle, I was asked to get her from the car and set her up in a temporary crate for her stay.

First and foremost FBR would like to express our humble gratitude towards our extraordinary supporters, adopters, and fosters who have helped when we needed it the most. Though time will pass and life return to a more normal pace, your invaluable support will be remembered. You made sure our dogs were well taken care, and they appreciate you!

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.

’After watching a pair of Bullies that had obviously been cruelly dumped a few weeks prior, a caring Fresno water district employee contacted Fresno Bully Rescue. It wasn’t the first time dogs had been intentionally abandoned in the area, we found the corpse of a deceased dog on the same canal.

’Tis the season for family, celebrations, and finding the perfect Christmas morning gift to set under the tree. Sometimes that big surprise might include bringing home a new pet! Surprising the family with a puppy, wrapped in a big bow Christmas morning, watching the kids run down the stairs and scream with excitement sounds like those Hallmark movies we’ve all come to love – but the story doesn’t always end up as perfect as we imagine.

With Valentine’s Day having just passed, I found it only fitting to give a couple of examples of why a Pitbull makes a perfect Valentine.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Pinta

IN THE December 15 ISSUE

FROM THE 2018 Articles,
andAnimal Rescue Adventures
SECTIONS

by Terese Shaw


Pinta, a classic American Pitbull Terrier and fawn beauty, first came to Fresno Bully Rescue when a local rescue unfortunately had to close its doors. We quickly learned that Pinta was exceptionally big- and small-dog friendly, and that she had an intense love of tennis balls. This rowdy love of tennis balls worked in her favor when she became the focus of trainer Stephanie Meadows’ attention.

Fresno Bully Rescue: River

by Terese Shaw


We weren’t very clever in naming her; it’s where our staff found her, early one morning in February of 2016. When the cute little blue and white female was spotted, she was hanging out on a cliff near the bottom of the San Joaquin River, right down the road from our shelter facility.
