How old are you? About 3 years old
How much do you weigh? About 65lbs
What do you look like? Funny you should ask, because my foster mom always asks me that! I definitely have some bully in me. The rest is shrouded in mystery. Some people see Dalmation, some see other things. I am tall, gorgeous, and have lovely markings.
What do you like to eat? Well, I was pretty used to finding my own food, so everything that is given to me is pretty much GREAT. I am not picky!
What kind of personality do you have? I like to play, but mainly I just like to hang out with people and dog friends.
Describe your perfect day: You know, I never had a lot in my life before I came here, so I don’t need a lot to be happy. If I woke up and I had a family of my own, that would be my best day. I would play with kids or dogs, eat a big dinner, snuggle on the couch. My needs are pretty simple!
What is your favorite toy?
I am pretty fond of Kongs. Kongs are, of course, the best thing ever invented. When filled with peanut butter, they are even more amazing!
Do you know any tricks? I know “sit.” I have been mainly working on raising my pups, but my foster mom says that I am super smart and could learn anything.
What scares you? Well, I am not scared of much.
Have you been around children? Do you like them? They are the best. I especially like to snuggle with the boy children in this home while they play on their computers.
Do you like cats? Honestly, I might chase them.
How do you feel about other dogs? I love friendly big dogs. I get along fabulously with the big dogs in my house! The little dogs, well, I am not too sure about them. They MIGHT be cats in disguise.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Gosh, when you start out your journey at the town dump, you really think everyplace is great. I think I am ready to retire after raising these pups. The best place in the world would be your couch.
How is your health? I am super healthy! No issues!
Who do you live with your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with many foster brothers and sisters. My best friend, though, is the the dog my foster mom found under I-5. She and I love to wrestle, then snuggle in a bed.
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? I like my crate!
Where do you sleep? See above. Crates are awesome.
Do you like walking on a leash? Yes!
Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? The one thing that I do that my foster mom disagrees with is guard my puppies from people outside the fence. She knows that I am just being a good mom, though, and we are not sure if this would continue if I went to my own home. I have been known to bark, but I have a nice, throaty voice
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) Yep!
Do you like water? I do. I like having enough to drink, especially. For me, that is a form of luxury.
What do you love about your foster family? My foster family took me and my 8 pups in on our last day in the shelter. So I love them for saving the lives of my children. I like how they pet me, give me food, and let me snuggle them. I feel safe here.
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?
Hey, this is sort of embarrassing, but you know the term “junk yard dog”? I had it worse than that, because I was living at the town dump for about 6 months. People saw me, and worried about me, but no one was able to catch me. When it was time to have my babies, I found an unused shed. I kept my pups alive for a month out there until we were taken to the shelter. My mom calls me a hero dog because of that. Then my family was in even more danger, but the nice people at NBBR came and saved our lives. I was nice to everyone from the start. I understood what they had done for me and my puppies. Who knows what my life was like before the dump. It’s not good to linger on bad memories. I am ready to make the second act of my life far better than the first!
