My story

***At this time we are ONLY doing adoptions within the immediate Sacramento area. Please fill out an adoption application on our website.***

What is your name? My name is Juno.

How old are you? I am around 2-1/2 (a/o 2.15.22)

How much do you weigh? 60lbs.

What do you look like? I am beautiful chocolate brown and white with a cute pouty lip.

What do you like to eat? i like to eat kibble mixed with a little soft food. My foster dad makes the best homemade bone broth so he adds a little to my food because he knows I love it.😍

What kind of personality do you have? I am a sweetheart mixed with a little sass. I have lots of energy and like to stay active. I am still quite young so my foster family has to keep a close eye on me so I don’t get into trouble. But they are patient and loving and I have come a long way while in their care!

Describe your perfect day: Every day is pretty great. I like to take lots of walks and checkout the turkeys in my neighborhood and hunt frogs in my backyard pond. 🐸💚🐸

What is your favorite toy? I love toys! But my favorite is my pink kong. My foster family likes to hide treats in my kong and I hold the world record at getting them into my belly fast!

Do you know any tricks? I know how to sit really well and I’m really good at lay down and stay. I also know “drop it”!

What scares you? I’m brave so nothing really scares me.

Have you been around children? Do you like them? I haven’t been around them but my foster family thinks small kids wouldn’t be a good fit for me since I tend to get the zoomies and could easily knock them over!

Do you like cats? I see cats in my neighborhood but I think I’d prefer to chase them than be friends with them.🚫🚫🚫

How do you feel about other dogs? I prefer to be the only queen of the castle. I am fine seeing other dogs on walks and stuff, but am proving to be a but pushy for other dogs.

If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Wherever my foster family is. I love when they take me on walks and spend time petting and playing with me.🥰

How is your health? My health is great! I am young and fit.💪

Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? My foster family has a mom, dad and a sister and I have a furry brother named Zeus. My favorite is a tie between my foster mom and my sister because they take me on car rides. 🚗 💨

Where do you hang out when you are home alone? When I am home alone I stay in my crate. Its comfy and I know I can’t get into any mischief when my foster family is away.

Where do you sleep? I sleep in my crate on a soft bed and blanket. 😴 💤

Do you like walking on a leash? Yes! I am a really good walker. I love to smell everything and pick up things I find when I walk. Once I found a hat and carried it all the way home!

Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard? My foster family is teaching me I am not the boss of the house. I bark when I hear people come to the front door, and I get really excited and jump up on people when I haven’t seen them in a while. But my foster family is teaching me manners and I’m very eager to learn!

Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside)? Yes I am!! I’m a good girl and always go outside!!!

Do you like water? I love to drink lots of water and I don’t mind the rain. 💦

What do you love about your foster family? I love that my foster family is very patient with me, teaches me the rules of the house and makes sure I get enough exercise because I have a lot of energy.

What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue? I don’t know much about my life before NorCal Bully Breed Rescue but that is OK because my life is really great now!

Additional adoption info

The first step in the adoption process is the completion of our online adoption application. You will be able to fill it out online and email it back to us. If you have any questions regarding regarding your application, we are here to answer them.

The second step is the home check. Our main priority in this step is insuring that your yard is 100% secure - there can be no loose boards or gaps in your fencing. If your dog is going to be spending anytime outside while you are at work or away from home, we ask that you have adequate shade or shelter from the elements.Before we schedule a home check, we may ask you to send us photos of your yard/fencing to get an idea of where the dog will be living. If you have any hesitation or questions about our yard check, please see our section on "How to Prepare for a Home Check."

The last step in the adoption process is the meet and greet. This is where we meet with you and any existing pets to ensure proper introductions are made. We want to make sure everyone gets along. Once all introductions are made, and everyone gets along, your rescue dog is yours to adopt.

Please note that there is no pressure involved, and if situation that cannot be resolved arise, we will always take our dog back. Also, be aware that there is an acclimation period for each dog and every dog is different. It can take a few days or a few weeks for your new dogs to settle in. We will assist in any way possible, including referring our trainer to come work with you and the dog.

All of our dogs are rescues, meaning they have already needed help in some way, and will only to to homes where they will live a "CHARMED LIFE." All of our adoptive dogs will be indoor dogs with outdoor privileges. We believe that dogs are family members, and should be allowed to sleep indoors.The only time they should be kept outdoors is if the weather permits. Any applications looking for an outdoor only dog will be denied. All current pets in your home need to be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and one heartworm preventive. Out of area adoptions are within reason and on a case-by-case basis.

Walk the perimeter of your yard. Take notes on the condition of your fence. Are there any loose boards or gaps under any sections of you fencing? If yes, these are easy fixes. You can nail any loose board back into place, and you can fill any gaps with pavers and gravel Do you have a lock on your gate? If not, please purchase one prior to your home check. Is there adequate shade or shelter for your new dog if it is going to be left outdoors while you're at work? Do you have anything hazardous in your yard, i.e. nails sticking out, chemicals left out, etc? Do you have a cat? If so, does your cat have a high spot it can retreat to if being chased? Are your garbage cans located somewhere near a gate where a dog can jump into them to get out? If so please move them. Please address these issues prior to our visit.

All of our dogs will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped prior to being adopted. Our adoption fees are considered to be donations. All donations from adoption go right back into our rescue account, allowing us to continue to help dogs in need. At the bare minimum, the cost to properly vet a dog is $100. But some of the dogs we take on are medical cases, which can cost several thousand dollars. Because of this, we ask the following adoption fees:
$500 for puppies, which are any dogs under a year old
$300 for any adult dog aged 1 year or older

More about this rescue

NorCal Bully Breed Rescue (NBBR) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to helping needy animals in our community. While our focus is on "bully breeds," we don't discriminate and will very often help dogs of any breed, provided we have a foster home available. We take in dogs from local shelters with a focus on those with medical challenges and those whose behavior is declining due to the stress of the shelter environment. These are the dogs most often overlooked and in need of the most help.

NBBR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, our tax ID # is 46-3665141. Your donations are fully tax deductible and fund our operations and help pay our vet expenses.

NBBR is dedicated to reducing the number of homeless pets through the spaying/neutering of all our our rescued dogs and through education on the importance of spaying/neutering all animals. We provide information on low cost or no cost spay/neuter clinics in our surrounding areas.

Each dog that comes to us has been temperament tested, updated on shots, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Many of our dogs have also been treated for various medical conditions including mange, heart worms, broken bones, neurological issues, and many others. One of our dogs can take anywhere from one month to one year to get ready for adoption and the cost for the dogs we take on can range from $100 to several thousand dollars. We take on dogs from shelters that are set to be euthanized for various reasons, including simply that they've been there too long, or they have a medical condition that precludes them from adoption to the public, making them "rescue only." This means only a rescue can pull them from the shelter, but also leaves us to be responsible for any costs to to be increased by said rescue dog.

We also take on strays and incur the cost of having them vaccinated, spayed, neutered and microchipped. We will help dogs who owners can no longer provide care by networking their dog, provided the owner can continue to house the dog. We insure a safe house for all of the dogs that we take on and provide all needed supplies for the foster homes that care for them until they are to be adopted. We also insure that they never end up in a shelter, running the risk of being euthanized due to lack of space or due to becoming "aggressive" cause by the stress of being in a shelter environment.
