I’m very tolerant of dogs sniffing and licking me and I LOVE puppies! I enjoy being being with people too, in fact I LOVE people! I’m just always a very happy boy!
Describe your perfect day: Getting up and going potty then coming back in to eat! After that I rest a bit then its off for some playtime with all my doggy friends! Then a little rest and some play fun again or sometimes a walk to see the cows, horses and goats! I live in the country and its SO MUCH FUN!

How do you feel about other dogs? I LOVE dogs, both male and females!
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? First I’d like to be in my forever home and second I’d like to go to Chicago!
How is your health? I’m very healthy!
Who do you live with your in foster home and who is your closest companion? I live with my foster mom and dad and my doggy siblings. I’d have to say my favorite human in my home is my foster dad, us guys have to stick together! My favorite doggy pal is my foster sibling, Bailey!
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? In my crate!
Where do you sleep? In my crate or in my room. I’m not a destructive boy at all so I get my own room!
Do you like walking on a leash? I like to, yes!
Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? I never bark and I never dig but I can get a little overwhelmed in big crowded places but I recover very fast and adjust just fine.
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) Oh yes!
Do you like water? I tolerate it!
What do you love about your foster family? They make sure I’m happy all the time and they really helped me with my social skills! I used to overwhelmed with more than one dog and now I can be with so many and enjoy playing!
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue? I kinda forget but I do remember going to the shelter with a very broken leg. Next thing I knew my rescue, Norcal Bully Breed Rescue got me the heck out of there and into my foster home! Some nice person found me with my broken leg and took me to the shelter so I thank them, my rescue and my foster family for saving me and keeping me healthy and happy!
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.
