I'm very silly and happy!
Describe your perfect day:
Oh man! My perfect day is breakfast in bed, but after I potty! Just give me a minute to hop back in bed! Then after my food settles I enjoy morning walks. I like to say hi to all the goats, horses we see but at a distance, I'm still not sure about goats...they hard stare me! Then maybe a quick zoom session. I enjoy car rides so maybe to the store for some exploring. In the evening I eat dinner then it's chill time with my peeps.

All of them! Especially those stuffy ones, they're yummy! But really, I love to play ball too!

I like dogs that listen and respect me.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Chicago. I want to meet Addison Russell from the Cubs or maybe the Indianapolis 500 track so I can zoomie on it!
How is your health?
I'm very healthy! When NBBR rescued me, I had a compound fracture and had to be on very light duty for months! It has healed and I use it but when I get tired I will favor it. Here's the thing, if later my leg causes issues, my former shelter has promised my new family that my surgery would be taken care of by them. That makes me feel very happy and proud that I came from such an awesome shelter!
Who do you live with your foster home and who is your closest companion?
I live with LOTS of dogs! So there's this young lady Belgian Malinois named Bailey. She's my foster moms dog and boy is she hot! I get to sleep by her sometimes too!
Where do you hang out when you are home alone?
I chill in my crate but I've also been in my fosters spare room. I'm not destructive so I'm privileged!
Where do you sleep?
In my crate or my room
Do you like walking on a leash?
Ehhh...I do but sometimes I forget that darn things attached to me and I'll try to do zoomies!
Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard?
No barking or digging but I tend to jump on people at times. I'm reminded regularly that's not a good choice and I try not too! Oh, and when I get frightened I want to run but only cause I'm scared, it's not a bad thing! Just something my new family should know about.
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside)
Do you like water?
Depends, bath water no! But pool water yes! Is that weird???
What do you love about your foster family?
She took me to all my Dr appointments to make sure my leg was healing! She keeps me safe and kept me from going insane when I was confined for my leg. She's a cool chick and play bows with me too!
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?
Hmmm, all I remember is someone got me to the shelter with my broken leg! I'm very thankful for everyone that was involved in saving me.

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 and fill out an adoption application (from your home computer). Please allow at least 24 to 48 hours for a reply.

Addison's adoption fee is $200.

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 will help dogs who owners can no longer provide care by networking their dog, provided the owner can continue to house the dog. 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.

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.
