How old are you? Between 7-8 years
How much do you weigh? 48 lbs
What do you look like? I’m a short, squatty girl with some petite musculature, light fawn and white coloring and amber eyes. I also sport what is described as an adorable overbite.
What do you like to eat? I am eating Costco grain free dog food right now and it is yummy
What kind of personality do you have? Well I am very sweet tempered and super people friendly and I just want to be rubbed and loved. I am really affectionate
Describe your perfect day: Being around people is wonderful and I love following my foster Mom all over the house. A perfect day would be to have a forever home with a wonderful family that showered me with affection and love all the time.
What is your favorite toy? Oh I really love my tennis ball but I like all kinds of toys
Do you know any tricks? No I don’t really know any special tricks, but I am learning to sit and wait. Where I came from before the people did not teach me anything, but I am a very good girl
What scares you? I am scared of things raised above my head, like a broom or something like that and if you swing your hand around my face I also am a bit scared
Have you been around children? Do you like them? Oh my! I love children so so much! They are so happy and funny and they let me kiss them and I roll over and let them rub my tummy and it feels wonderful, I would like to live with them
Do you like cats? Um that would be a no, they are small furry and I don’t trust them, so I would chase them if I could.
How do you feel about other dogs? I like other dogs very much! Right now I play with my 6 month old foster brother and he is so fun! I also get along well with my foster family pack which has 3 big dogs in it and they are nice to me and I like them
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Right now my foster home is so wonderful because before this I was kicked out on the streets abandoned and I feel loved and safe here, but I really want to be with my very own family I can call mine all to myself.
How is your health? I am healthy girl
Who do you live with your foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with my foster parents and I have a bunch of foster brother and sister doggie’s and there are 3 small children that come and visit all the time. I would have to say that my foster mom is my most bestest friend in the whole world!!!!
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? In my crate
Where do you sleep? In my crate
Do you like walking on a leash? I like to walk on the leash but I do pull a little. My foster mom is helping me with that
Do you have any not-so-great habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? Well I sometimes like to climb up over a fence if it is not a good fence but I am learning that I don’t need to do that anymore and every once in a while I like to bring all my inside toys outside to play with
Are you housing trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) Well I do really well! The only accident I’ve had at my foster home was when I couldn’t get outside and I really, really had to go.
Do you like water? Only to drink. I try and avoid the garden hose when it comes on, because no thank you! I do hold still and be good when I have to have a bath though
What do you love about your foster family? I have not gotten a lot of love in the past and my foster family takes great care of me: they give me a lot of hugs, talk to me, and food comes regularly. I give them as much love as they can soak up in return, because I love them.
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue? I don’t remember a lot of that life. It is kind of a blur but It was not a real happy one. Workers say that I got abandoned on the streets and was infested with fleas. I had terrible infections in my ears and it was so painful! A kind lady found me, took me home and tried to find my old home but no one wanted me anymore. I was taken to the shelter and then NBBR took me to a nice foster home to help me get healthy and back on my feet. They are now helping me find a wonderful new loving home and they promise I’ll never have to relive what happened before again.
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). If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you can visit our website at norcalbullybreedrescue.com and fill out an adoption application (from your home computer). Please allow at least 24 to 48 hours for a reply. Thanks in advance.
Truffles adoption fee is $200. NOVEMBER IS ADOPT A SENIOR DOG MONTH. IN HONOR OF THIS, TRUFFLES' ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN WAIVED!!
