How old are you? About 6 months old.
How much to you weigh? About 30 pounds. I am not going to be very big.
What do you look like? I look like Max in the Secret Life of Pets. I am white and tan spotted with loving eyes.
What do you like to eat? I love Taste of the Wild puppy food.
What kind of personality do you have? Oh I am so outgoing and love to be with people. I super happy and love to greet everyone. I have a lot of energy so I would love to play fetch or go on walks.
Describe your perfect day? My perfect day is getting up early and chasing the squirrels in the backyard. Then coming in to eat my breakfast. Going back to sleep with my foster mom and then getting up and going for a walk. I love to play with my big foster brother Murphy the Mastiff. We play chase in the back yard and then I love to take a nap. I am still a puppy so I get tired out. But after my nap I have a lot of energy and can’t wait to go run. I love days when we are all home together.
What is your favorite toy? My favorite toy is my squeaking tennis ball. Anything that squeaks.
Do you know any tricks? I know how to sit. I am still working on stay and down. I know of have a mind of my own and can be stubborn but I really want to please and make you happy.
What scares you? The vacuum scares me. Loud noises are the worst.
Have you been around children? Yes I love children. I get to go to work with my foster mom at her preschool. I have to be careful though because I am learning how not to jump. I really want kids of my own.
Do you like cats? Cats are ok. I have 2 of my own that smack me in the face. But I would chase them if they ran from me…but they don’t run from me!
How do you feel about other dogs? I love other dogs. I live with 4 big dogs and we all get along great.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? With my foster mom cuddling on the couch. Or camping. I love camping.
How is your health? My health is good now. I had strangles in the shelter and they said I wasn’t going to make it out unless someone saved me. My foster mom nursed me back to health and there isn’t anything wrong with me now.
Who do you live with in your foster home? I live with my foster mom and my 4 foster siblings. Oh and 2 cats.
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? I hang out in my crate. My bff Murphy hangs out in this crate right next to me in our own room.
Where do you sleep? I mostly sleep in my crate but sometimes I get to sleep in bed with my foster mom and my big brother Blu. He is really nice to me.
Do you like walking on a leash? I love to go on walks and am learning good leash manners. I still have some learning to do.
Do you have any not-so-great habits? Well I am still a puppy so I like to chew a lot. My foster mom makes sure I have things to chew on but I like to find my own stuff to chew on.
Are you housed trained? I am 90% house trained. Most of the time I will go to the door to be let out but sometimes I have accidents. But not very much.
Do you like water? I like water on my own terms. I love getting in my doggie pool but please don’t bring out the hose. It kind of scares me.
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?
Well NBBR took me from the scary shelter and I only had a short time to get out or I wasn’t going to make it. I am sure my first 3 months of life were not so good. I was sick and just needed a place to go home to. That is when my foster mom took me in and nursed me back to health and I just love her. I cannot imagine why someone would treat me bad. I am such a happy boy and love life!
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).
Skip's adoption fee is $350.
