Reilly said:

I saw Meaty’s photo on the Fresno Bully Rescue Facebook page and just got this feeling that he was “the one”.

My senior bully had passed away 3 months prior and I had the exact same feeling when I adopted him at 10 years old, so I knew this dog was meant to be his predecessor.

I took 3 weeks off to give Meaty time to adjust in his new home with us, but he got a severe case of kennel cough and didn’t come home until my last 3 days off work.

We are so thankful for Fresno Bully Rescue and all they did for the chunk and our growing family!

He’s truly a mama’s boy, though, and just wants to be next to me all the time.

It’s great to have though, as you really can’t have a bad day when he’s around. I’d dare anyone not to smile being near him.
