Chance II's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Chance II's Story...
What is your name? Chance, because I'm getting a second chance at life.

How old are you? We think I'm about two years old.

How much do you weigh? I weigh 78 lbs. - healthy and strong

What do you look like? I am tan and white with the most beautiful golden eyes you'll ever see.

What do you like to eat? I really like to eat anything, but I get grain free kibble with some coconut oil and sometimes treats in it.

What kind of personality do you have? I'm still a little scared, so I don't know if my personality is really showing, but I want to play like a little puppy and be silly a lot, then I like to snuggle too.

Describe your perfect day: A perfect day for me would be a good full hour of playing in the morning or a good long walk, then a yummy breakfast and a nice nap! Then I'd probably like to play some more before dinner :-)

What is your favorite toy? I like squeaky softies and bones, but sometimes I like to steal some of my peoples things too :-(

Do you know any tricks? I sometimes sit when asked to, but I'm not tricky yet

What scares you? People I don't know, quick movements and loud noises

Have you been around children? Do you like them? My foster family has grandchildren, a 5 year old boy and a 10 month old girl. I like to smell them and lick them. I watch them, but I don't interact with them too much yet.

Do you like cats? I think I'd probably like to chase them. I've only seen them on my walks with mom.

How do you feel about other dogs? I like dogs. I really like the ones I live with. We play and lay on the bed together.

If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? So far, I'd have to say my foster parents bed. I really like it there.

How is your health? I'm young and strong and show no signs of any health issues. But the doctor says I have a heart murmur.

Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with my foster dad and mom, one adult boy and a little boy. I REALLY like my foster dad, but I spend most of my time with my foster mom and love her a lot.

Where do you hang out when you are home alone? I get the bedroom and the back yard to come and go as I need.

Where do you sleep? I sleep in my crate which is next to my foster mom in their bedroom.

Do you like walking on a leash? I'm learning to walk on my leash. I don't think I was ever walked on a leash until I got rescued. I'm getting better at it every day.

Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? Sometimes I do bark because I hear things or see people that make me feel scared. I haven't been a digger yet, but I do like to steal things and chew things that I shouldn't sometimes.

Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) I do go potty outside, I'm a good boy.

Do you like playing in water? I like running in and around the water, but I don't swim in it. I don't really like when the hose is turned on.

What do you love about your foster family? Mmmmm.... I love how much they love me and are patient with me. They take me on walks and sometimes rides in the car. I like to stick my head out and let the wind blow in my face. They let me lay next to them and rub my belly and ears too.

What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue? I think I was chained outside and hardly loved or fed. I was scared and other dogs came in my yard and picked on me. I was sad and scared.

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. Chance's adoption fee is $200. 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 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chance II, a Lincoln American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Lincoln, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Lincoln.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lincoln already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lincoln breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lincoln paves the way for another one to be saved.
