How old are you? Best guess, between 4-5 years old. But age is only a number!
How much do you weigh? Well... I'm not sure how much I weigh, but I was a little chunky monkey, so foster Mama put me on a diet. I'm lookin good now! Best guess is about 50lbs.
What do you look like? I have a beautiful white coat over spots that are on my skin. I have soft, uncropped ears and a sweet face.
What do you like to eat? My foster Mom likes to mix it up a bit, so I don't get bored, being careful not to create tummy upset either. Currently, she's got me on Nature's Domain Salmon and Sweet Potato mixed with Solid Gold Quail and Chickpea, some freeze dried raw added with Honest Kitchen base mix added too.
What kind of personality do you have? I'm a total tomboy and definitely NOT afraid to get dirty! I'm a rough and tumble kind of girl who enjoys playing with my foster sister, swimming and rolling in the dirt. I also enjoy sunbathing, but since I'm so fair, sunburn is a concern! My exercise needs are medium - I like a walk or a short flirt pole session, then I'm ready to relax for the evening, chilling out cuddling while watching tv.
Describe your perfect day: Hanging out with my family doing whatever and playing with my canine friends.
What is your favorite toy? I love the Kong Wubba that my Auntie Susan brought me and I like to chew on Nylabones. I also enjoy playing with the flirt pole and catching my frisbee!
Do you know any tricks? I do! My foster Papa recently taught me to shake - with either paw! I also know the basic obedience commands sit, down, and stay. My newest trick is rollover! I also like to catch a frisbee!
What scares you? Not much. I'm a pretty confident girl.
Have you been around children? Do you like them? I have not spent much time around children and because I can forget my manners and jump up when I'm excited, older kids would be a better match for me than young children.
Do you like cats? I'd rather live in a home without them.
How do you feel about other dogs? I enjoy spending time with other dogs, but slow and proper introductions are a must. In my foster home, I hang out and play with my foster sister and am being introduced to my foster brother.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Anywhere my family is - that's when I'm happiest!
How is your health? I'm in great health. Healthy teeth, shiny coat and getting trim too!
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with my foster Mom and Dad and foster canine brothers and sisters. My closest companion is one of the other foster dogs who live here with me. Her name is Tessa and we do everything together. She's my best friend.
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? In my crate. I'm fully crate trained and see it as my little safe place. But honestly if I was adopted and left home alone, I'd just sleep on the couch and not chew on stuff. I'm pretty good like that.
Where do you sleep? On the living room couch with my canine foster sister, Tessa. Sometimes, foster Mom and Dad let me and Tessa sleep in bed with them - it's a super treat!
Do you like walking on a leash? Yes! I enjoy going for walks and am pretty good on leash, but get excited when I see other dogs. I will sit politely for treats and give my handler my attention when they pass.
Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? I don't typically bark, but if there is a snarky dog on the other side of the fence, I will run along the fence. I'm not sure if I'd dig if left alone in the yard, as my foster folks let me stay indoors when they aren't home.
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) I am completely housetrained!
Do you like playing in water? I LOVE water! My foster Mom and Dad bought us dogs a kiddie wading pool and I really enjoy splashing around it! They also take us to the lake from time to time and I love swimming in the water!
What do you love about your foster family? My foster Mom and Dad have been very patient and kind with me. They have helped me learn how to be a good canine citizen by taking me to LOTS of training classes. They go camping a lot and they almost always take us dogs along too! We even went all the way to Utah for three trips in the RV!
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?
I don't remember a whole lot about my life before my rescue. I found myself at the shelter after being picked up in a rice field by the ACO. Not too long after passing my behavior eval and going on the adoption floor, I began to show signs of kennel stress and began displaying bad behavior brought on by that stress. Shelter management decided that I needed to find a safe place to go if I was to leave the shelter alive. The volunteers at the shelter were very nice to me and took me for walks every day to help me handle my stress. Some nice volunteers worked hard to find a safe place for me and I've been in my foster home ever since.
NorCal Bully Breed Rescue is a foster based rescue with foster homes spread all throughout the Sacramento area. We require our adopters to be within a 50 to 100 mile radius of us, depending on the dog, and depending on the home. This is because we need to do a yard check to guarantee that the potential adopter's yard is secure, and also have them be close enough should any behavioral issues arise, and the assistance of our trainer is needed. We try our best to match our dogs to the perfect homes, and match them based on their personalities, not their looks. Adoptions are not done on a "first come, first serve" basis, rather in the order of what homes are the right match for that particular dog.
Kylie's adoption donation has been sponsored by a generous donor.
