How old are you? About 1-1/2 years of age
How much do you weigh? I think around 50 lbs.
What do you look like? Like a tiger! I’m dark brown with tan strips.
What do you like to eat? I like my grain-free chicken or turkey kibble. I also like pretty much all treats.
What kind of personality do you have? I’m a very active pooch, I like to play and run. I’m smart and a people-pleaser!
Describe your perfect day: My perfect day would be getting to meet lots of people. I love people! I also love spending time with my family (dogs and people). Chewing on toys and bones with my family is so much fun!
What is your favorite toy? My favorite is my baseball mitt. I love showing people my toys!
Do you know any tricks? I know how to “sit”, “wait” before I can leave my crate, before I eat, and before I come inside. I’m also learning “leave it” and “drop it.”
What scares you? The vacuum. It’s really loud!
Have you been around children? Do you like them? I haven’t been around children much but I love everyone!
Do you like cats? I prefer a cat-free home.
How do you feel about other dogs? I love playing with my foster siblings. I play really well with them because I think I’m a big dog! With other dogs, I’m a little too playful and they don’t always like that.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? I love my foster family but I would really like to be in my forever home with another dog that likes to play or a very active family. I would be a perfect hiking or running buddy!
How is your health? Excellent! I’m growing bigger and stronger every day!!
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live my two foster sisters and one foster brother. I love my foster sister Keira. We play the best together!
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? I hang out in my crate that way I stay safe and don’t get into things I’m not supposed to.
Where do you sleep? In my crate. My foster mommy tells me “Get in your crate.” And I hop right in because I always get a treat for being a good boy!
Do you like walking on a leash? I walk very well on a leash with my special harness.
Do you have any not-so-great habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? I think I’m a bigger dog than I actually am and right now it gets me in trouble because I play too rough with the (actual) big dogs. When I get too rowdy, my foster mommy puts me on time-out. I don’t like it, but it gets me to calm down so I can play nicer. I also get really excited when I see other dogs and if they bark at me, I bark back. I just really want to play!
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) Yes!
Do you like playing in water? I like shallow water. I’m not the strongest swimmer!
What do you love about your foster family? I love having the big dogs to play with and seeing cats! I love how my foster mommy and daddy teach me things so I can grow up to be a well-mannered adult dog.
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue? I was brought to the Stockton shelter with my brothers and sister. The people that had us before had a dog that picked on us. I had a wound on my head that healed quickly. They thought we were seven weeks old but we were actually younger, probably closer to five weeks. We may have had a rough start but we’re all safe now.
NorCal Bully Breed Rescue is a foster based rescue with foster homes spread all throughout the Sacramento area. We usually 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 are, however, willing to adopt out of our area, including the Bay Area, Tahoe, and even further. We've even adopted out of state on very special occasions. 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 based on the dog and range from $200-$350. In the case of senior dogs (6+ years), fees will be waived to the right home. This includes spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, and deworming (if necessary).
The adoption donation for Silas has been sponsored by a generous donor!!
