A heartwarming story unfolded as a pregnant Pit Bull named Zia, who was found shaking in a kennel, was given a second chance at life and a loving forever home for her and her puppies. The woman who found her knew that Zia needed a safe place to give birth and raise her puppies. This story showcases the incredible journey of Zia and her puppies, highlighting the importance of fostering and adoption. When Zia was discovered, it was clear she was in labor and needed a safe space to give birth.


The mama dog was taken to a foster home where she could prepare for the arrival of her babies. Zia went through the nesting process, moving blankets around to make everything perfect for her puppies. Once she had given birth, Zia was visibly more relaxed and comfortable in her new environment.


The first few weeks of the puppies’ lives were filled with new experiences, like opening their eyes and exploring their surroundings. The foster family named the puppies Zorro, Zoie, Zaina, and Zeus, each with their own unique personalities. Zorro, the little brown one, was the vocal and energetic one, while Zoie, the runt of the litter, was sweet and shy. Zaina was the adventurous girl, and Zeus, the biggest of the litter, was mischievous. Zoie, the tiniest of them all, needed extra love from her mama and Zia was happy to oblige.

As the puppies grew, they began to venture outside for the first time and enjoyed playing in the grass. When they were ready, Zia’s puppies were taken to Fresno Bully Rescue for adoption. It was comforting to know that these puppies had experienced love since they were born, setting them up for a brighter future.


The puppies quickly found loving homes with excited adopters who couldn’t wait to welcome their new furry family members. One adopter, whose dog Cash had recently passed away, found solace in adopting one of Zia’s puppies, as her eyes reminded him of his beloved Cash. Another family had recently moved into a new home and felt that one of Zia’s puppies would be the perfect missing piece for their family.

After all of her puppies found their forever homes, it was Zia’s turn to find her own loving family. A couple from Fresno saw Zia’s story on Instagram and instantly fell in love with her. They had previously lost their Pit Bull, Evelyn, and felt a connection to Zia. They were hopeful that Zia would love them just as much as they loved her.


The moment Zia met her new family, it was clear that she was going to be well-loved and taken care of. Zia and her puppies have all settled into their new homes, receiving endless love and attention from their adopters. This incredible journey highlights the importance of fostering and adopting animals in need and the rewarding experience it brings to both the animals and their new families.
