Sapphire added to Sponsored Dogs

September 15th, 2014 · No Comments



I first met Sapphire at Fresno Bully Rescue in May 2012. I was one of the volunteers there. This was her second time back to Fresno Bully Rescue. She was originally from Los Angeles where she was used as a breeder dog. They clipped her ears and filed down her canine teeth. I believe she escaped from there because she was found by a woman roaming the streets of LA. She couldn’t keep her so she contacted Fresno Bully Rescue and they took her in. She was adopted by a family and was there for less than a year. They said she was stolen, I think she escaped from them because they just put her in the backyard and did nothing with her. SPCA contacted Fresno Bully Rescue to let them know they had Sapphire. She was now back at the shelter and that is when we met. By the 3rd time I walked her she let me know I was going to be her new mommy. Yes…she chose me! It took her until October to totally convince me. I was so in love with her and knew she had to come home. She finally came home in December 2012. She was my Christmas present.

Sapphire is 6 years old. She loves to give hugs, play with her favorite ball and just be right by my side. She never leaves me. She has a wonderful life now and is so spoiled. I can’t believe what a gentle loving dog she is considering the way she was treated before.

In May 2014 she was diagnosed with Mast Cell Tumor on her head. Her surgery is scheduled for September 17, 2014. Thank you to the Canine Cancer Awareness for donating so Sapphire can have her surgery to remove the tumor.
