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

How old are you? We think I'm about a year and a half 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.

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:
November 11th, December 9th
Our upcoming adoption events through 2017 are:
January 13th, February 10th, March 10th, April 14th

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.
