How old are you? About 9 months
How much do you weigh? ~45lbs
What do you look like? I’ve got beautiful white eyelashes on my small head with a beautiful black and white color shapely body.
What kind of personality do you have? I’m a sweet girl who loves to play and meet people, but not overwhelming.
Describe your perfect day. Waking up next to my brother and human. Getting a belly rub. Playing with my dog brother, Rally. Making sure the squirrels don’t mess up our backyard. Going on a walk around the neighborhood. And snuggling again with my brother.
What is your favorite toy? Kongs and chewy things.
Do you know any tricks? Not tricks, but am learning how to sit, stay, off, and down.
What scares you? Not much now. I’m sure there are many new things I need to experience, but so far it’s all been good!
Have you been around children, do you like them? I haven’t been around children too much, but I think they’ll be nice if they pet me.
Do you like cats? To me they’re like squirrels – I need to chase them!
How do you feel about other dogs? I haven’t met any other dogs other than my siblings. I see them on my walk and want to meet them.
If you could be anywhere in the world where would it be? Chasing the squirrel! And then relax snuggled up.
How is your health? At first I had a limp, kennel cough, and a cold. After resting and playing with my brother, I’ve grown, gained muscles, and have been quite healthy since!
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion. My foster mom and dog brother.
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? If my foster mom is taking Rally on a walk, I’m in a crate. Otherwise Rally and I have an area within the home and back yard which we roam in.
Do you like walking on a leash? I just learned how to walk on a leash and love to smell everything! I’m still pulling, but my foster mom is working with me on my leash habits.
Do you have any not so great habits that we should know about for instance do you bark or dig in the yard?
I’m a puppy and like to chew. My brother is the one who will “steal” the shoes and other fun things. I run with him when he has those items. I have been known to chew edges of beds.
Are you house trained? Yes! I proudly go through the doggie door when I need to go.
Do you like water? Not sure, bath time is not my favorite. Sure do love the sprinting around after the bath! I don’t mind the rain and still do my business outside.
What do you love about your current family? My foster mom knew I wasn’t feeling well when I first arrived. She gave me good food and care to get better. Now I love walking up to her to give her love and snuggling in bed with her.
What was your life like before being rescued by your current family? It isn’t such a great beginning for a growing pup my owner kept me and my 5 siblings in a garage for 6 months w/o too much outside interaction. Then they decided to take us all to the SPCA, we were in danger because we didn’t know the outside world at all. Luckily we got some time w/ a trainer for evaluation, of course we came out of our shells and luckily when we went back to the shelter NorCal Bully Breed Rescue found foster homes for ALL OF US!
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).
Rita's adoption donation is $350.
