Fresno Bully Rescue: One Family’s Trash Is Another Family’s Treasure!

The original Facebook post stated: “Free, come pick her up!” The original owner bought her only for breeding, but she had gotten pregnant by some unknown stray. Bree was now a waste of money, and the original owner didn’t have a need for her any longer. Bree was going to the pound by the end of the day if no one came to pick her up.


Naturally, this situation sent the rescue world on fire! A combined effort was set into motion to save her from this heartless owner. When rescuers arrived, the owner had dumped her in an orchard, tied to a tree, all alone. After a brief stay in boarding to get spayed and healthy, Bree was in the loving arms of Fresno Bully Rescue to begin her journey to find a forever-loving home.

First off, let me mention that Bree is a BIG, beautiful puppy with stunning eyes that will warm your soul. She is goofy and loves to play with other dogs, big and small. Bree weighs about 90 pounds, but thinks she is a lap dog.

So, what does having a “big” dog mean, might you ask? It means bigger kisses, bigger cuddles, bigger adoration, and a sweet girl that will love you completely. When we envision a family for Bree, it’s one that is ready for adventures. She would love hiking or going on adventures in the great outdoors. We know that she will create a loving, lasting, and trusting bond with her future family. We think she deserves to know that when she is finally in a home, she will be part of that family, forever. Not just a money-maker to breed.
Tuck Bree in at night just once and you will fall hopelessly in love with her. She gives the sweetest goodnight kisses, then will curl up into a tiny ball (as tiny as she can manage) and snuggle down into her blankets. So, if you like big dogs, Bree is your girl!
