She follows her foster mom around the house, adapts quickly, and enjoys learning. Her foster parents are retired and have other rescue dogs that keep her active. Itsy has not been around children and probably is too excitable and nippy to be with young children at this time. She is playful, but not suited to rowdy dogs that play rough as she is small and easily injured.
In her foster home, Itsy races around the house and yard at warp speed with her buddy Molly (another Affen-mix) who is about her size. They chase and wrestle until they are both tired, then settle down for a snuggle and a nap.
Itsy sleeps in her crate at night in the bedroom near Molly in another crate. Itsy and Molly came from the same shelter. They have been apart for several months, and were recently reunited in foster care. Another dog like Molly would help Itsy work off her impish energy.
Itsy is an adult dog, who is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and microchipped. She is ready to join her new family in her new home today! Her adoption fee is $200.
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).
