What is your name? My name is Daisy

How old are you? I am 3 yrs. old DOB June 30th, 2012

How much do you weigh? 61 lbs.

What do you look like? My coat is a beautiful light brown color with white markings on my head, chest, and paws.

What do you like to eat? My favorite dry food to eat is the grain free salmon flavor, but I am ok with eating other types. I also love working for treats.

What kind of personality do you have? My personality is amazing to say the least. Although I am 3 years old, I still have some nice and easy puppy energy that is very controlled. I love being outdoors the most whether it is sunny, cloudy, or raining. I can snuggle up on the couch on the cold days and help you stay warm.

Describe your perfect day: My dream day-to-day activities would be outings to any place that we can explore together and possibly go for a swim. I am also very smitten with just going out in the back yard and hanging around playing with the ball for hours or even just minutes. I will even chase the water out of the hose if you have a spray nozzle involved. However, another one of my favorite things to do is end the day cuddled on the couch or chair and fall asleep.

What is your favorite toy? BALLLLL, if you throw a ball I will fetch it for as long as you let me.

Do you know any tricks? Sit, Down, and Stay are my personal favorite tricks to do. (my video: https://youtu.be/HywFyupvn4Q )

What scares you? Nothing really scares me but I do not really like things too get to excited/crazy around me

Have you been around children? Do you like them? I have been around children of all ages, the youngest has been 3 yrs. Old. I am ok with all the ages but would rather prefer the older calmer children

Do you like cats? I have not been around any cats but my foster mom suspects that a non-cat house would be best.

How do you feel about other dogs? I am great with other dogs as long as we are properly introduced.

If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Dream place = somewhere out doors where myself and my mom and/or dad can just always explore and learn new things

How is your health? Health is great. I am at about 100% health wise.

Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion?
I live with a total of 7 people in my foster home… 5 kids ranging from 3 yrs. Old to 17 yrs. old and my foster mom and dad. I would say I am closest to my foster mom but I get along great with everyone. I also have a foster sister named faith I sometimes hang around and get along fine with.

Where do you hang out when you are home alone? When home alone I hang out in the bedroom or in my crate and I do just fine in both.

Where do you sleep? I sleep in my human foster sister's bed….. there are two human foster sisters in my room so I jump back and forth between their beds sometimes.

Do you like walking on a leash? I love walking on a leash but need to wear a gentle leader or I cannot slow down sometimes, but with my gentle leader on my foster mom says I am an “angel walking,”

Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? No barking or digging but I do love to give kisses ALL the time and sometimes if I find toys in the house I just want to play, play, play.

Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) Yes I only go potty outside. Going inside is a big NO NO

Do you like playing in water? WATER….are you kidding me that is my other favorite thing besides playing ball. Please let’s go swim.

What do you love about your foster family? I love that my foster family works with me on training, I love to please so that is a blast. I also love that we have playtime and cuddle time and I get to do all this every day.

What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?
Life before NorCal Bully Breed Rescue was a weird situation. I had two families in two different houses and I was able to roam freely between the both of them. Until one day, I ran across a poodle that was not making nice with me, well one thing led to the other, and I found myself in what they call a shelter. After being there for three months as rescue only due to “dog aggression” the county put into an effect a law that required me and all other “aggressive” dogs to be put down immediately and “aggressive dogs” could no longer and ever again reside in LA county. I was a shelter favorite so a very special woman reached out to NorCal Bully Breed Rescue and asked if they could do anything. She was a longtime volunteer in the rescue world and vowed that if I did not get out of the shelter she would stop rescuing all together. And it’s at that point the ladies at NBBR found me a foster home and in March of 2015; St. Pitties Day (St. Patrick’s Day) to be exact, I headed up north for a 6 hr drive to my foster home. And, here I stay today till my forever home is found.

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 for adult dogs is $200, and $250 for under the age of one year. 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 scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "adopt" to find the form. Once the form downloads, fill in the blanks, and return the completed form to us by email at norcalbullybreedrescue@gmail.com. Please allow at least 24 to

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.

Our Adoption Process...

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.

ADOPTION PREREQUISITES:
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.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A HOME CHECK:
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.

ADOPTION FEES:
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.
