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? I am Jack!

How old are you? 1-2 years old (a/o 4.01.22)

How much do you weigh? About 45-50 pounds💙

What do you look like? I am am all white dog with a few black spots🐶

What do you like to eat? I LOVE eating. It is my favorite thing to do. I am not picky, but I eat kibble for my meals and I get treats when I listen to my foster parents.🦴

What kind of personality do you have? I am active, alert, trainable, and cuddly- I love to get onto my foster parents’ laps and lay down, even though I’m a little big for that. ⭐️

Describe your perfect day: start off with breakfast and playing in the yard with my sister dog Sally, then going on a long walk by the river or playing some fetch, before heading back home to relax. 🦮

What is your favorite toy? Anything I can put in my mouth, but I love fetch.🎾

Do you know any tricks? I can fetch, I sit, and I am learning to lay down. 💪

What scares you? Nail trims 😬

Have you been around children? Do you like them? Never met one directly, but when it comes to

seeing them on walks I pay almost no attention to them.😊

Do you like cats? No thank you.

How do you feel about other dogs? I like them, and I’m doing really well meeting my foster parent’s dogs. However, if we are on a walk I’ll start barking when stranger dogs bark 😜

If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? Next to my human, snuggling with them and my sister dog Sally.

How is your health? I’m a healthy boy! 💪

Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion? Sally- a 55 pound pit (she’s my favorite), a 60 pound basset hound/GSD mix and a 12 pound dachshund mix.

Where do you hang out when you are home alone? In my crate, next to Sally’s crate. 💜

Where do you sleep? In my crate, next to Sally’s crate.😍

Do you like walking on a leash? I love walking on a leash, my foster dad is training me to follow his lead.🦮

Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For example, do you bark, or dig in the yard? Sometimes I bark at other dogs on walks. I bark when my foster parent comes into the room if the door was shut. Twice now my foster dad left a pair leather boots in my room and I ate the back of those. They were tasty! But apparently that was not a good thing… how am I supposed to know that stinky cow skin isn’t food?!? I use a slow feeder because I eat quickly and I eat separately from other dogs. I can get a little defensive around food. I am still a little “mouthy” when I get excited. My foster dad is working on teaching me appropriate ways to show my excitement.

Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside?) Yes, of course!

Do you like water? I have not yet gone for a swim, but maybe! 🤷‍♀️

What do you love about your foster family? I like playing games! I like fetch, and running, and walking, and learning tricks. I’m a cuddle-fiend, and when my dad sits on the ground I like to pretend I’m a lap dog. I also like car rides, and I like going to Lowe’s and Home Depot.❤️

What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?

I don’t remember much about my life before. The last thing I remember, Sally and I were running through the streets of Rio Linda looking for any food we could find. My foster dad found us, and I ran right up to him, he seemed nice and he had cheese curds. Sally was scared at first and ran. I trust Sally, so I followed her but our Foster dad chased after us in his car. All of a sudden Sally stopped running, and the car door opened. She jumped right in, but I wasn’t ready. I went to hide in a field, but my foster dad started to leave a trail of cheese curds out to his car… so I changed my mind and went with him. We were skinny like skeletons, our ribs poking out, and our legs would wobble with every step we took. Our foster mom found out about NBBR, and here we are now!

⭐️Jacks Adoption fee is $100⭐️

Additional adoption info

*** You MUST live within the immediate Sacramento area which includes Sacramento County, parts of Placer and parts of ElDorado County.


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 your application, we are here to answer them. If you do not live within our specified area, your application will not be reviewed.

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 most adult dogs aged 1 year or older.
(French/English Bulldogs fees are significantly higher and are explained on our website.)

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.
