*** Foster Homes Needed ***
We have a few fosters that could really benefit from a foster family of their own. They are not doing well being one of many and could really use some one on one time to help them enjoy life a bit more until we can find them a furever home.
All of our dogs are fully vetted, microchipped, potty trained, and crate trained. If you are interested in becoming a Forgotten Souls Bully Foster please contact us today!!
Send us a message here @ Forgotten Souls Bully Rescue or email us @ ForgottenSoulsBullyRescue@outlook.com for more info.
To view our adoptable dogs (also available to foster, or foster-to-adopt) go here:
Part 1 @ VCA Metroplex Animal Hospital & Pet Lodgein Irving, Tx
This is part one of most likely 3 @ VCA. That is because there were THREE AMAZING docs there that helped save my Gizzy Goo's life. It was only fitting that we fit in a special trip to see Dr. Poore FIRST. She is truly an ANGEL.
I took the same trip today again that we took back in August. This time instead of me laying in the back with my girl, nauseated from the smell of blood, dehydrated from the amount of crying I did that morning, and her dying before my eyes.......this time.... it was a happy trip, and Gizzy had her head out the window truly enjoying the air and simply being alive!! It was such a great thing to WALK her into the vet that she had once been wheeled into. It was such a silent victory we felt today. She had beat what almost seemed impossible at one point.
I wanted Dr. Poore to see her and see exactly what she had done for my girl and me. Too many Vets only see the animal at their worst and never see them after and how much they have improved. As always Gizzy is a bit cautious when meeting new folks, but she seemed to warm up a little bit faster to Dr. Poore. She did spend quite a bit of time with her while in her private suite @ VCA Even gave her a few kisses, almost as if she said THANK YOU in her own little Gizzy way.... I hope Dr. Poore knows what an angel she was for girl in such a horrible time. She gave me so much hope that things would be ok...even when behind the scenes there was so much uncertainty in what the outcome would be. She was so impressed with how great Gizzy looked and how her leg had healed up. I really hope it made her day!!
I said it once and ill say it again, Dr. Poore is truly an ANGEL. THANK YOU for all that you did for Gizzy. We can't imagine life without her and thanks to you and your awesome team @ VCA we dont have to. You hold a special place in our hearts and Im sure Gizzy's too
-- Later this week will be Gizzys next stop on her "Thanksgiving Tour of Thanks" so stay tuned!!! --
*** 2nd Stop - Gizzy's Thanksgiving Tour of Thanks ***
@Denton Vet Center in Denton, TX
Yesterday, we took a trip to visit our FAVORITE vet!! It's about a 45 min to an hour drive depending on the traffic, but oh so worth it!
We had to go back to say THANK YOU! to Dr. Wuensche for all that he did for my girl! With Gizzy's vet bill rising (already was @ $6,000+) we had to look for an alternative vet that would give us same quality care without the almost $2000 a day price tag since our donated funds and care credit were just about gone. I feared that while we got her through the most critical part of everything, that I would not have the funds needed to care for her leg or her after care checkups and whatever else was needed.
So we arranged to transfer her up to Denton so he could check out her leg and let us know what route to go next. We trust his professional opinion as he has never steered us wrong. He took Gizzy into surgery that day since over nite it seemed her leg went from bad to WORSE at VCA (not from lack of care, simply because of how long it took her to get "out of the woods" they were not able to focus on that yet)..... something needed to be done and fast. He had to cut out some skin and muscle tissue that had died and put in drains. It took about 3 weeks to a month for everything to just about heal up. The results are truly amazing! She has some battle wounds but due to the brindle color of her fur and how minimal the scars really are (compared to the original damage of course) you wouldn't really even notice them!
I am so grateful to Dr. Wuensche and his wife, Terrie, who are always so kind to us and this time, helped me save my own. Thanks to Dr. Wuensche Gizzy still has her leg and is able to run around with the family that LOVES her oh so much!
If your looking for a vet that does excellent work, really cares about the animals, and can always give you a smile in the worst of times, then go toDenton Vet Center and ask for Dr. Wuensche. He is an amazing Doc doing even more amazing things.

*** Kibbles for our Pibbles ***
Hey guys!! As always we are looking for donations for food, and with the colder weather setting in, if anyone wants to donate blankets we would greatly appreciate it!!!
As far as blankets go, we don't use anything fancy since some fosters like to chew on them from time to time. We try to keep a nice stock of the fleece blankets you can find @ Walmart for $2.88. If you have any we need to pick up please shoot us a message so we can work something out.
Also we can use food too!! We try and stick with the Victor brand since its the best quality for the price. It's about $35 for a bag at our local feed store. We try to stick with the same brand or better quality because we have skin sensitive fosters. (When we have gone down on quality our dogs developed crazy welts Yikes!) So our bill on food has been roughly around $140 a month. Sometimes a little more, but not by much.
If anyone would like to contribute to either our Kibble for Pibble fund or for blankets, click on the "Donate!" tab on our FB page or feel free to donate at the following link -
(Make sure to notate what you'd like your donation to be used for)
You can also message us here on the page, or emails us @ ForgottenSoulsBullyRescue@outlook.com to make arrangements for pick up of any items.
Thanks again! Forgotten Souls Bully Crew
*** 1st Stop - Gizzy's Thanksgiving Tour of Thanks ***
Grand Prairie Animal Clinic in Grand Prairie, TX
So this morning we took a very special trip. The last time we took this trip, I had blood on me, no shoes on, and my Gizzy girl was dying in my backseat.
It's been almost 3 months now since that horrific morning, that I left my pack unattended in the yard and accidentally fell asleep. I woke up to Gizzy being attacked by my other 3. I instantly knew she didn't have much left in her, so I called my mother and asked her to meet me at the closest animal clinic we knew of in Grand Prairie. I brought my girl in and they were able to stablilize her......but these two awesome ladies helped direct me to the next clinc on Gizzys journey, VCA . My girl was not going to make it without the help of an emergency clinic that would be prepared to deal with the magnitude of her injuries. I also was not aware of the limits of the clinic i had brought her to. I thank Dr. Hackert & Amber for letting me know in their own way that I needed to move her to a facility better suited for her needs. It is because of them she is still here today.
Today we took the same trip we took 3 months ago......except Gizzy was my co-pilot in my passenger seat with her nice new bully mart collar on that she almost didn't have the chance to wear. It is a bit cold outside so of course she had a hoodie on to keep her warm. She walked into a clinic this morning , that I had carried her in dying.........She walked in AND out on her own. Such a wonderful morning it was to see how far she has come. I hope Amber & Dr. Hackert enjoyed the visit as much as we did. They were truly amazed at my miracle girl and how well she overcame the battle to survive she had in front of her.

Today is a very bittersweet day for us, especially our admin Terry.
Today we said goodbye to our military foster of the last 18 month's. You don't foster a dog for that long without developing feelings for them. Twice we considered adopting him for ourselves when the family considered rehoming him due to housings and military base restrictions. Unfortnately it's just not the right fit at the moment to add one more. We also as a rescue understand there comes a Point where if a dog is not thriving anymore, something needs to change. Prime is not the easiest in regards to blending peacefully with other dogs, so in a multi dog home with many rotations he deserved so much more than what he was getting. So he is now headed to Arkansas to join the brother of the soldier he belongs to. We pray for safe travels and that soon enough he will be reunited with his family.
He will be greatly missed around the Pittie Funny Farm by Terry and my husband. My husband fell in love with him as he truly is a" soldier's dog" and my hubby being a veteran bonded very much with him. He will miss the late nite walks, the crazy look of one ear up and one ear down, and how protective he was of my husband. That kind of loyalty can not be bought. I know my mother will miss his loving personality, belly rubs, and watching him attack the water hose.
He's taking a piece of our hearts with him...
