Angel was found roaming the busy streets by a shelter worker. Shortly after being picked up, Angel gave birth to 6 puppies in the back seat of the car. Unfortunately, one of the puppies was born in very poor condition and passed shortly after. Angel and her 5 puppies were being kept with their rescuer, and were luckily taken in by Fresno Bully Rescue. A day later, we went and picked the family of six up and brought them home for foster care. When we first met Angel, she was shy and mainly concerned about her pups. Her body language was skittish and unsure, and her protruding bones painted a picture of her unfortunate past. She had a lot of growing to do, but she could not have been in a better place to do so. With the help of her foster fur-siblings and our devoted care, she flourished into a beautiful, sweet, loyal, and much more confident dog.
We didn't know it then, but Angel had already chosen her forever home the moment she stepped into our home. When it came time to face the prospect of Angel being adopted and leaving us, we just knew we couldn't let that happen. We fell head over heels in love with her, and she formed such a beautiful bond with our pack, we decided to "foster fail" and adopt her ourselves. Since being adopted, she has helped us care for countless foster puppies, thus earning the nickname Mama Angel. She has formed an incredible companionship with our 1 year old son, Elias. We cannot picture our lives without her.
