What kind of personality do you have?
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.
What is your favorite toy?
All of them! Especially those stuffy ones, they're yummy! But really, I love to play ball too!
Do you know any tricks?
I can hide a chuck it ball in my jowls...
What scares you?
Have you been around children? Do you like them?
I haven't been around children but I'm a good boy that loves people, are children people too?
Do you like cats?
I'll let you know if I get the opportunity to catch one!
How do you feel about other dogs?
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 norcalbullybreedrescue.com 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.
