How old are you? 3ish
How much do you weigh? 65 pounds
What do you look like? A super model
What do you like to eat? Pretty much anything. I'm super food motivated and will do anything for a cookie.
What kind of personality do you have? Well... while I might LOOK like a big tough independent boy, I'm actually quite the clingy kinda guy. I love my human, and want nothing more than to be near them. I'm adventurous, athletic, and spontaneous. I'm not too fond of meeting new people, so if you're looking for an outgoing, social kinda dog, I can introduce you to some guys I know... but that's not me at all...
Describe your perfect day: If I could go on a half dozen walks every day I'd be in heaven. But I get it. That's not realistic. A walk in the morning followed by some power naps on the couch would be awesome. Maybe a walk in the evening, then I lay on my bed while you make dinner... I'm a patient kinda guy. I can wait for my evening cuddles. As long as I get some of that dinner... pasta is my favorite!!!
What is your favorite toy? PUZZLE TOYS!!! I love anything that makes me think. I'm super smart so any kind of puzzle toy really makes me think and gets my "mental zoomies" out.
Do you know any tricks? I spent two months at Tug Dogs and learned how to be obedient and am pretty much fully trained! I know all the basic commands and am fully crate trained, house trained, and leash trained.
Oh, also, I like to hug. Yes, hug. I've attached a photo as proof.
What scares you? Strangers. I don't want to meet new people, and I get nervous around people I don't know.
Have you been around children? Do you like them? I like kids, but because of my size and my fear of strangers, it would be best if I was in a "kid free" home.
Do you like cats? Yes. They taste like chicken. 😂
Sorry. No, I wouldn't do well with cats. I am fascinated by them and want to chase them. And maybe chew on them. Is that bad?😳
How do you feel about other dogs? My best buddy is a tiny little dog named Buggy. He puts up with my excitement, and we usually settle down together pretty quickly for a nap by the fire. I get SO excited when I see dogs that it might turn into a scuffle. So I'm thinking I either need to be an only dog, or live with a small assertive dog. I'm respectful of what Buggy tells me, like when he nips and says "Hey! Back off!!!", so small dogs would be fine. A big dog would likely tire of my excitement.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Sleeping on a big fluffy dog bed in the home of someone who decided to adopt me.
How is your health? Fabulous!!
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? Buggy. Aka Bug-A-Boo. And my foster mom is pretty cool. She takes me for walks and hangs out with me by the fire pit. I can tell she loves me.
Where do you hang out when you are home alone? I have my own room! And in that room is a 6'x6' kennel so that I have my own safe space. I'm also crate trained, but I don't destroy stuff if I'm left alone in a room.
Where do you sleep? In my room, in my kennel, on a big giant bed, surrounded by toys.
Do you like walking on a leash? Yup! I walk like a complete gentleman as long as I'm wearing my training collar. Otherwise I pull a lot. 😬
Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? I don't dig. Or bark. Or destroy stuff if I'm left outside. Or even inside for that matter. I'm a really well behaved guy. I'd say my only drawback is that I don't like meeting new people. But that's not even really a drawback. I'm kind of an introvert I suppose. That's not really a big deal though!
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside) Absolutely!
Do you like playing in water? I'm not sure... I've never tried...
What do you love about your foster family? They take really good care of me. They give me lots of toys and puzzles to keep me busy. They take me on lots of walks. They build me great big fires in their fire pit at night and pile blankets onto my bed so I can cuddle by the fire. They are patient with me and love me.
What was your life like before being joining NBBR? It was pretty crappy. I was in a shelter and I was pretty much losing my mind. I would chew on a ball all day in my kennel, and drool nonstop. My eyes would get super red and I'd kind of zone out, like try to forget where I was. But then I'd hear a door slam or a dog bark, and then I'd remember... it was hard for me to be there. I was so stressed out. I had some really nice people there that took really good care of me. They tried so hard to calm me down. They tried their best to love me. I won't ever forget them. They don't know it, but they really helped me. I was struggling so hard and they showed me love. And they found me a way out by contacting my foster moms. I wish I could tell them all how much I appreciate and love them for what they did for me in that shelter. ❤

My rescuers would like to keep me local to the Sacramento area in case I need any help with training in the future. They will help with that. And Tug Dogs will help go over what I learned while I was there.
I'm a good boy. I just need structure and a confident leader. I'm actually quite easy to handle and don't cause any problems in my foster home! I'm so looking forward to meeting my forever family.
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).
Steele's adoption donation is $200..
