Rita and her 5 littermates were born May 2016. One of her littermates new mom had a DNA test done which determined they’re American Staff, Boston Terrier, Bull Terrier, and Boxer. Rita arrived at her foster home with her siblings as the runt of the pack, but soon grew to be 55lbs. She’s got spunk and loves to adventure outside on walks and in the car. Rita will pull a bit on the leash since she’s so excited. She and her brother, Rally, will play together all day. She even tolerates him when he sits on her to be near her! Rita is learning the basic commands and is crate trained. She has lots of confidence and loves to meet new people, but does need a slow introduction to other dogs and should live in a cat-free home. Rita has been known to take over the pillow – she loves to snuggle right next to you and place her head on the pillow, too. Rita is looking for that person or family to be with and go on adventures.
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.
