What do you look like? I have the sweetest face! Always smiling and wagging my tail!! My eyes are the color of honey and so expressive. I'm a pit bull. I'm tan with white on my face, chest and paws.

What do you like to eat? Everything. I just want a little nibble on everything I see. I just need to make sure it's safe for my foster family that's all. I'm a really good loving puppy!! My foster parents mostly feeds me 'first mate' grain free dry food and drizzles coconut oil over it! I really like it! Then when I'm extra good and need something more to nibble on they give me raw beef bones!! Yummy!

What personality do you have? I am a people dog!! I just want to be right by your side! I am happy all the time! I'm energetic. I'm sweet!! I love love to cuddle! I will lick you to death if you let me. My foster parents have let me play with my foster sister Ladie, she's a lab. We get along great! I'm still
A puppy so I want to be busy! I'll help you with yard work, I'll help you with laundry. As long as I get to be by you I'm happy.

Describe your perfect day. Going out in the morning and running around my foster family's yard, sniffing and smelling things. Playing some frisbee. Eating some yummy food. Maybe coming in for a good cuddle. Then going for a walk around the neighborhood. Playing some more, with my foster sister Ladie. Learning new tricks. I get treats when I do them!!! And definitely cuddling some more. I'm so happy when I get to cuddle! Especially my my 5 year old foster human Lola. She loves me! She sneaks me treats when her mommy and daddy aren't looking!❤️

What is your favorite toy? Hmmm, that's tough. I tend to turn everything into a toy! My first toy my foster family gave me was this stuffed soft tiger. I sleep with it every night. I mostly like bones they give me and frisbees. I'm still learning to fetch and catch. I didn't really know what that was when I came to my foster family.

Do you know any tricks? My foster family says I'm a very very quick learner. They have taught me to sit, stay, (I stay sometimes, but I just get so excited it's hard to sit still) lay down, roll over, and shake. This is my favorite! I like to shake all the time now! Even when they don't ask me!! It's how I say hello!!

What scares you? I don't like it when you raise you voice too loud. I'll hide. I really really don't like the hose when water is coming from it. Come to think of it, any thing that sprays water! I run as far away as I can!!! I'll play in water as long as it's not moving:) it's safer that way. Other than that I might be afraid of the dark a little. I'll go outside at night as long as my foster parent is with me:))

Do you like cats? I haven't been around any to know if I do or don't.

How do you feel about other dogs? So far I love my foster family's dog Ladie! Their little wiener dog Rocco is really old and isn't the nicest, I tried playing with him and he got grumpy. My other foster sister Sadie is a corgie, she's almost 11. We payed a little bit I'm too fast for her! She can't keep up!! I like other dogs just fine as long as they aren't too aggressive with me. I will protect myself!

If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be? With a family that loves me, that treats me nice. I family that gives me lots and lots of cuddles. An active family that takes me places. I love children!! My foster family has a 5 year old and we're best buddies!! I don't know about younger children yet. I haven't been around any yet.

Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with my foster parents Megan and Matt, my 5 year old foster human sister Lola! She's my best friend! She gives me treats and says good morning and goodnight to me. We cuddle and play lots! I also live with my foster uncle Bobby. Then there are also my 3 new doggie foster siblings. Ladie, a lab. We like to play! She has energy just like me!! Sadie, a corgie. We haven't played to much yet but we have gone on walks together. And Rocco, a mini Doxie. I try to play with him but he's a little grumpy. So my foster parents only take us on walks together.

Where do you hang out when you are at home alone? During the day when my foster parents are at work, I stay out in the garage. I have a door that allows me to go to the back yard. I lay down in my roomy kennel where I have a nice fluffy bed. There is a fan to keep me cool in the garage too. When my foster parents are home I get to go inside and relax and sniff around the house:)

Where do you sleep at night? I sleep in my kennel in the garage. I'm calm and relaxed when I'm by myself at night. All of us dogs were too excited at first to all sleep inside. My foster mom hopes eventually we will all be able to sleep in our kennels inside at night.

Do you like walking on a leash? Yes I love it. I'm very good at it too! I mostly stay by my foster parents without too much tugging. But I am still a puppy so I get really excited sometimes!

Do you have any 'not so great' habits we should know about? Well like I said before, I'm still a puppy so I chew on everything. And I mean everything. That's why my foster parents give me lots of toys and bones to chew on. And why I mostly stay in the garage, there are way too
many fun smells and textures to chew on in the house! I especially like Lola's barbies! Lola didn't like that though. And when I play with other dogs, I like to jump on them. Not all dogs like that though I guess. But other than that I'm the sweetest most loving doggie!!

Do you like playing in water? I will put my paws in the shallow wading pool. But as I said before I'm very afraid of spraying and moving water. So I won't swim.

What do you love about your foster family? I love them because they found me abandoned and all alone out by a river. I was very very hungry and lonely. They give me yummy food, treats, toys. A safe place to live. And best of all they love me. That show me that all the time. I know my foster parents are busy a lot with work and the other dogs, but they always make what time they can for me. They've never once been mean to me. They are understanding even when I do things I shouldn't. I like not being alone anymore.

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 take on owner surrenders, dogs who owners can no longer provide care. 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 2016 are:
January 8th, February 12th, March 11th, April 8th, May 13th, June 10th, July 8th, August 12th, September 9th, October 14th, November 11th, December 9th.

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.
