My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Basil was surrendered with her mom and 3 other siblings to our rescue. The little family was living in the backyard in their previous home with little human interaction. All 5 of them have come a along ways since joining our rescue and all of her siblings have found their forever home. Here are some facts you need to know about Basil to make sure she is the right fit for your family:

> Basil is great with other dogs, big or small
> Basil is good with cats

> Basil is good with children of all ages as long as they give her space and respect 
> Basil is house and potty trained
> Basil is crate trained
> Basil has learned to walk on a leash 
> Basil enjoys going for walks
> Dog Parks are an absolute NO for her
> Running off leash in an unfenced yard is an absolute NO for her

Basil is adjusting well in her foster home but the outside world can still be a scary place for her. The adopter needs to be aware that it will take time and work to get Basil adjusted slowly in her new world.

Basil opens up and becomes playful when around other dogs so we require that her adoptive home has other playful and well adjusted dogs who can be a role model for Basil to learn from.

We do not require a fenced yard as long as the adopter can provide sufficient exercise. However, if fenced the fence needs to be a minimum of 5' high as she will be able to jump a lower fence if spooked.

Basil is an absolute sweetheart and will make a wonderful companion if taken the time to make her understand that this world is not such a scary place afterall. We promise, you will love her!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

BRPS Adoption Requirements We ask that you please read the below in its entirety. Minimum requirements for adopting from Bobbie’s Pit Bull Rescue & Sanctuary are: Demonstrated responsible dog ownership, and primary care of a dog to include spay/neuter of current family pets. Also, all pets must be up to date on vaccinations and (dogs) heartworm tested and on preventative. Demonstrated financial stability and must be at least 21 years of age. Proof of home owners insurance that covers the bully breed. If you rent, we require a letter from your landlord giving you permission to keep a bully breed on the premises and you must have Renter's Insurance that covers the breed. Please note that many insurance companies will cancel your homeowner’s policy if you own a bully breed. It is the adopter's responsibility to check with his or her carrier to ensure coverage will remain in place. While we do not require a fenced yard we strongly prefer yards that are fenced in by chain link, wrought iron or privacy fencing. Homes with no fences will be evaluated to make sure that the dog has enough opportunities during the day to exercise. Invisible fencing is not acceptable. Adoption Policy We are happy to hear from people interested in giving one of our wonderful dogs a responsible, lifelong home. Bully breeds become deeply attached and devoted to their families. Our animals are adopted as inside family pets only. If you feel you may not truly enjoy having a dog's constant companionship, enjoy having him/her sleep in your bedroom at night and share your activities by day, then you may be happier with a breed less oriented to human companionship. Much like toddlers, puppies cannot go all day long in a crate and need to be let out often to receive physical exercise and mental stimulation. So as a general rule, preference is given to homes where they will have multiple breaks during the day. Homes where puppies are crated 6+ hours Monday thru Friday without breaks are not acceptable. Puppies 0-12 months are required to attend Daycare at least once a week for socialization purposes, no exceptions. Every dog must be enrolled in Obedience Training courses within 30 days after final adoption, no exceptions. No out of State adoptions except of MD and DC. However, exceptions can apply under special circumstances. The adopter must agree to stay in close contact with BPRS for the next 180 days after adoption to make sure that the adopted dog is adjusting well. This includes additional home visits if we deem necessary to help with adjustment issues. We want to make sure that the adoption is a success for both, adopter and dog. BPRS is there with you all the way. Our adoption fees are: · $150 for dogs directly out of a shelter · $200 for dogs 6 months and older · $350 for puppies 0 months to 6 months · $150 for senior (age of 7 and up) or special needs dogs, but may have a reduced or waved adoption fee based on special circumstances. We are a Not for Profit organization. Every cent of the adoption fee literally goes to help the dogs, the majority goes towards medical expenses. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated and on heartworm/flea and tick preventatives: no exceptions. If you are unable to keep your adopted dog for any reason he/she MUST be returned to BPRS. A ll applicants are required to submit an online application to be considered for one of our animals. All information is kept strictly confidential.
