Astrid is 80 pounds of pure love.

Every week, CochraneNow gets a special, in-studio visit from an adoptable dog and each of these pups has such an incredible story.

"Astrid came to us a few weeks ago during one of our transports where we went and picked up 60 dogs from a high kill shelter in Bakersfield, California" explains Amanda from BARCS Rescue. "She was red-listed due to her breed and the way that she looks."

"We went in and scooped her up and brought her up here to find a loving home."

Bully breeds have a stigma associated with them, and Astrid is here to show you should never judge a book by its cover.


"I would say one of the best ambassadors for her breed and the bully style of dog."

"All she wants to do is gently take treats from you and get belly rubs."

Astrid is available for adoption from BARCS Rescue, check out below for more information and to hear the full her full adoptable dog tale
