June 10, 2015 -- Victor E. Bulldog III Makes Fresno State Debut
According to a report from Fresno State, Fresno State’s new live mascot, Victor E. Bulldog III, enjoyed a warm welcome from University President Dr. Joseph I. Castro and a gathering of supporters Thursday, June 10, 2015, in the Student-Athlete Village on campus.

Victor E. III is filling the paw prints of Victor E. Bulldog II, who passed away in March. The three-month-old English bulldog will carry on the proud live mascot tradition set forth by his predecessors. He will support the University and make his way around the Valley to meet Red Wavers, pose for photos and interact with alumni and friends.
“Having Victor E. Bulldog III join our Fresno State family makes this a very special day for our University and the entire Valley,” Castro said. “As our mascot, he is beloved by the Red Wave and holds a special place in all of our hearts. Today is also a bittersweet day as we think about the sudden loss of Victor E. II, who leaves a big ’collar‘ to fill. We'll remember him and celebrate his spirit as we welcome the newest Fresno State Bulldog.”
