How old are you? I am 4+ yrs old
How much do you weigh? I weigh approx. 50 lbs
What do you like to eat? I love to eat my kibble and chew on Bully Sticks. Bully Sticks are my absolute favorite and the time passes so quickly when I’m focused on my bone. I stay quiet and content with my bully stick
What kind of personality do you have? My foster Mom says I’m a bit laid back because I really do like lounging around most of the day, but if my people are around and about I’m right by their side. I LOVE being by my person’s side. I also like giving slobbery kisses (my foster family loves them) but I can be told not to if needed
Describe your perfect day: My perfect day would be to wake up in the morning with my people (preferably in the same room) and let them know I need to go out. Then it’s breakfast time…I LOVE breakfast! I eat my kibble quickly and go outside to chase lizards and wander around. When I am ready to come in, I stand at the door to let them know. When my people walk with me I love it. I am good on leash and love smelling different things and places. Then an afternoon nap can’t be beat (and by the way, when I’m comfy and tired I snore-my foster mom says it’s pretty cute!)
Then more outside play and of course trying to find lizards. Cuddly time with my people, dinner and back outside for potty. Usually before bed my people let me get up on the couch or on the bed and it’s belly rub time…they usually let me stay there for quite a few minutes before it’s bedtime.
What is your favorite toy? Toys are “OK” but Bully Sticks are my most favorite thing to have
Do you know any tricks? No, I don’t really know any tricks at this point in time…can you teach me some?
What scares you? What scares me is chaotic places, lots of running around and high energy dogs, also dogs that are a little unsure of themselves as I feel like I have to protect myself before they hurt me. I’ve been to training to help me with this and Tug Dogs will help with a lesson and consult when I get adopted so my new people can learn the ropes to helping me with my fears
Have you been around children? Do you like them? I LOVE children. One thing I must tell you is that I can get pretty excited sometimes and I “may” knock smaller kids over so my foster Mom thinks children 11+ are a good match for me.
Do you like cats? I haven’t really been exposed to cats but don’t really “run after” anything so we’re not sure if I could live with cats but we could certainly test and see if it works
How do you feel about other dogs? Other dogs, hmmm well I told you I really LOVE my people..People are the very, very best in my book! Don’t get me wrong, there are some dogs that are “OK” if you ask me and others that kind of make me nervous so it’s been recommended that I go to an only dog household. When well behaved dogs are around I like to be with some of them but PEOPLE are what I crave!
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? In a Land FILLED with Lizards…Lizards everywhere…hiding, running, hiding some more and keeping me occupied cause I love watching them and chasing them.
How is your health? My health is excellent! I did have heart worm treatment (over a year ago) because when I was at the shelter I tested positive for heart worm. It was caught very early and I breezed through treatment and am now on preventative
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with my foster Mom and Dad and many, many dogs (some resident dogs and some foster dogs). Without a doubt my best pals are my foster Mom and Dad!
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? I hang out in a kennel in the family room. The TV is usually on playing soft music and I have a cushy bed! It’s a big kennel, not a crate so I can stand up, move around and lie down.
Where do you sleep? I sleep in a crate in my Foster Mom and Dad’s bedroom. All of us sleep in there and it feels like one big happy family
Do you like walking on a leash? I do like walking on leash and usually stay by my person’s side and smelling around. I love going different places.
Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? Ok, so I have to be totally honest with you, sometimes I DO bark. The other dogs in my foster home are very excitable (Little fluffy yappers if you know what I mean) so when everyone gets really excited sometimes I bark too but I normally I’m pretty quiet
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) I do potty outside. I stay outside until I go potty and then I come in.
Do you like playing in water? I’m not such a fan of water. My foster home has a pool but I’ve never really wanted to get in and try it. I’m OK with bathes though
What do you love about your foster family? I’ve been with my foster family so long now I really love them and they love me. They treat me as if I am their own and I know they won’t let me be adopted by just anyone, they will find the perfect match for me! I was bred a lot and I’m done with my job as Mama…I’m ready for ME time now!
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue? I was turned into Shasta County Animal Control with my 8 pups — only a couple of weeks old. It was cold and not very comfy for my newborn pups. My foster Mom was asked if she could help and she said YES immediately. My puppies grew and were all adopted and I’m still waiting for that perfect home!
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. Our adoption fees are set based on the dog. Shasta’s adoption fee has been sponsored to an approved home. This includes spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, and deworming (if necessary). If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you can visit our website at norcalbullybreedrescue.com and fill out an adoption application. Simply click the "adopt" tab to find the form. Once the form loads, fill in the blanks, and hit submit. Please allow at least 24 to 48 hours for a reply. Thanks in advance.
