What is your name? Kylie, Kylie Monkey

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.

About NorCal Bully Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

NorCal Bully Breed Rescue (NBBR) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to helping needy animals in our community. While our focus is on "bully breeds," we don't discriminate and will very often help dogs of any breed, provided we have a foster home available. We take in dogs from local shelters with a focus on those with medical challenges and those whose behavior is declining due to the stress of the shelter environment. These are the dogs most often overlooked and in need of the most help.

NBBR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, our tax ID # is 46-3665141. Your donations are fully tax deductible and fund our operations and help pay our vet expenses.

NBBR is dedicated to reducing the number of homeless pets through the spaying/neutering of all our our rescued dogs and through education on the importance of spaying/neutering all animals. We provide information on low cost or no cost spay/neuter clinics in our surrounding areas.

Each dog that comes to us has been temperament tested, updated on shots, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Many of our dogs have also been treated for various medical conditions including mange, heart worms, broken bones, neurological issues, and many others. One of our dogs can take anywhere from one month to one year to get ready for adoption and the cost for the dogs we take on can range from $100 to several thousand dollars. We take on dogs from shelters that are set to be euthanized for various reasons, including simply that they've been there too long, or they have a medical condition that precludes them from adoption to the public, making them "rescue only." This means only a rescue can pull them from the shelter, but also leaves us to be responsible for any costs to to be increased by said rescue dog.

We also take on strays and incur the cost of having them vaccinated, spayed, neutered and microchipped. We will help dogs who owners can no longer provide care by networking their dog, provided the owner can continue to house the dog. We insure a safe house for all of the dogs that we take on and provide all needed supplies for the foster homes that care for them until they are to be adopted. We also insure that they never end up in a shelter, running the risk of being euthanized due to lack of space or due to becoming "aggressive" cause by the stress of being in a shelter environment.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable dogs live in foster homes and meet and greets are done by appointment.

Monthly adoption events are held at the Roseville Petfood Express store at 1009 Galleria Blvd in The Fountains Shopping Ctr. These events take place on the second Friday of each month from 6-8pm.

Our upcoming adoption events through 2017 are:
January 13th, February 10th, March 10th, April 14th, June 9th, July 14th, August 11th, September 8th, October 13th, November 10th & December 8th.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is the completion of our online adoption application. You will be able to fill it out online and email it back to us. If you have any questions regarding regarding your application, we are here to answer them.

The second step is the home check. Our main priority in this step is insuring that your yard is 100% secure - there can be no loose boards or gaps in your fencing. If your dog is going to be spending anytime outside while you are at work or away from home, we ask that you have adequate shade or shelter from the elements.Before we schedule a home check, we may ask you to send us photos of your yard/fencing to get an idea of where the dog will be living. If you have any hesitation or questions about our yard check, please see our section on "How to Prepare for a Home Check."

The last step in the adoption process is the meet and greet. This is where we meet with you and any existing pets to ensure proper introductions are made. We want to make sure everyone gets along. Once all introductions are made, and everyone gets along, your rescue dog is yours to adopt.

Please note that there is no pressure involved, and if situation that cannot be resolved arise, we will always take our dog back. Also, be aware that there is an acclimation period for each dog and every dog is different. It can take a few days or a few weeks for your new dogs to settle in. We will assist in any way possible, including referring our trainer to come work with you and the dog.

All of our dogs are rescues, meaning they have already needed help in some way, and will only to to homes where they will live a "CHARMED LIFE." All of our adoptive dogs will be indoor dogs with outdoor privileges. We believe that dogs are family members, and should be allowed to sleep indoors.The only time they should be kept outdoors is if the weather permits. Any applications looking for an outdoor only dog will be denied. All current pets in your home need to be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and one heartworm preventive. Out of area adoptions are within reason and on a case-by-case basis.

Walk the perimeter of your yard. Take notes on the condition of your fence. Are there any loose boards or gaps under any sections of you fencing? If yes, these are easy fixes. You can nail any loose board back into place, and you can fill any gaps with pavers and gravel Do you have a lock on your gate? If not, please purchase one prior to your home check. Is there adequate shade or shelter for your new dog if it is going to be left outdoors while you're at work? Do you have anything hazardous in your yard, i.e. nails sticking out, chemicals left out, etc? Do you have a cat? If so, does your cat have a high spot it can retreat to if being chased? Are your garbage cans located somewhere near a gate where a dog can jump into them to get out? If so please move them. Please address these issues prior to our visit.

All of our dogs will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped prior to being adopted. Our adoption fees are considered to be donations. All donations from adoption go right back into our rescue account, allowing us to continue to help dogs in need. At the bare minimum, the cost to properly vet a dog is $100. But some of the dogs we take on are medical cases, which can cost several thousand dollars. Because of this, we ask the following adoption fees:
$350 for puppies, which are any dogs under a year old
$200 for any adult dog ages 1.
