Story
WHAT IS YOUR NAME? Nacho!! Look at me? I’m delicious! ARE YOU A GIRL OR A BOY? I’m a handsome boy! HOW OLD ARE YOU? I think I am around three years old. WHAT BREED ARE YOU? 100% hunk, obviously! But also… I had my DNA tested and I am American Bulldog, American Pit Bull Terrier, American Bully, and American Staffordshire Terrier. Look at me, a perfect mix of all the American bully breeds! HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH? I am a big, beautiful 70 pounds of love. WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE? I’m a big, blocky-headed goofy boy! I’m brown/brindle mix with white marks on my chest and gorgeous hazel eyes. I’m really quite beautiful, if I do say so myself (and everyone who sees me agrees, of course!) WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO EAT? Just about everything! I’ll do anything for treats. WHAT KIND OF PERSONALITY DO YOU HAVE? I am goofy, playful , sweet, and loyal. Once I bond with you, we are besties. I have a lot of energy, so I’d love someone who likes to play with me and teach me things. But, don’t get me wrong, when it is time to nap, I will cuddle like it is my professional calling. You won’t need one of those weighted blankets with me around! DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY: My perfect day is going on a long walk at the river! I love playing in the water and playing with other dogs. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TOY? I love all toys, but I’m a big fan of playing with balls, especially the ones with squeakers. I also love to play tug of war with any kind of toy. I’m just a very playful boy, so I will enjoy anything that you give me! DO YOU KNOW ANY TRICKS? Yes! I am an extremely fast learner. I’ve learned “sit,” “stay,” “lay down,” and “gentle.” I am also learning, “Leave it,” “Shake,” “Roll over,” and “Give me a kiss!” I can also jam my big booty on your lap even in a small chair! I totally fit…. WHAT SCARES YOU? A world without treats. HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND CHILDREN? DO YOU LIKE THEM? I LOVE children, but I sometimes get a little too excited around little ones. I have puppy energy and I’m a big boy. Although I’m working REALLY hard on not jumping and I’m getting better, I would need some more work before I should be off-leash around small children. I’m also a little mouthy still, so toys are a good distraction. DO YOU LIKE CATS? I get a little too excited about cats so no thanks, I’ll pass. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OTHER DOGS? I love other dogs! I love them so much that the shelter used me to test other dogs’ dog-friendliness. I’m still learning how to give dogs their space when they’re done playing, so sometimes we take a time out. In my current foster home, I have played nicely with dogs of all sizes. Dogs are so fun! IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE? Anywhere my people are, but especially outside playing in the yard with them. I like playing fetch and love playing in the hose. HOW IS YOUR HEALTH? Good! One of my back legs is shorter than the other, maybe from an injury when I was a baby, but it doesn’t slow me down. Foster mom is a runner and I get to go running with her all the time! I love it! WHO DO YOU LIVE WITH IN YOUR FOSTER HOME AND WHO IS YOUR CLOSEST COMPANION? I love my foster mom but that’s probably just because she gives me treats. I have three foster brothers and a sister. I play with the boys, but the lady dog doesn’t like playing. My foster brother, Squish, is my favorite, he lets me lay on him. WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE? I hang out in my crate. I am fine hanging out there for a few hours while my humans are away or at work. WHERE DO YOU SLEEP? I sleep in my crate. DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH? Yes! I’m excellent on a leash. DO YOU HAVE ANY "NOT-SO-GREAT" HABITS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT? FOR INSTANCE, DO YOU BARK OR DIG IN THE YARD? I can be mouthy when I’m excited or if I want to play with my humans, but I’m learning how to be gentler. I sometimes jump on humans and counter surf if there is food out but I’m getting better at that as well. ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED? (MEANING DO YOU GO POTTY OUTSIDE) I’m usually good about pottying outside, but I have occasional accidents in the house. I need a good routine! DO YOU LIKE WATER? I LOVE water. It’s the best thing ever. Drinking it, wading in it, playing in the hose stream. It’s so so fun. WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY? I love that they take me for walks, they are teaching me a lot of good lessons on how to behave, and they play fetch with me. I also love snuggling with them at the end of the day or any time I’m allowed. I do like to snuggle! WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE COMING TO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE? I was found roaming the streets of the Oceanview neighborhood of San Francisco. I had an injury on my head and my back leg. But I’m pretty much over it and on the go! I am ready to find my forever family and live the rest of my fabulous life with someone who will love me as much as I love them. ** NACHO’S ADOPTION FEE IS $100*** If you are interested in adopting Nacho, please jump on our website and fill out an adoption application- www.norcalbullybreedrescue.org For more information on what that means and why that is, please click on the following link: https://www.facebook.com/333019703483910/posts/3264412130344638/?extid=0&d=n Thank you so much in advance for understanding!!!

Story
Gwumbo would love to be your shadow. He recently got a break from the shelter and went on a field trip with two of our volunteers and they shared, "Gwumbo favors the destination rather than the journey, even if the journey includes stops for french fries and a pup-cup! At home, follow you he will, be it from room to room, around the back yard, or around the block... he will be there. His best naps are beside you especially if you are settled. Get up... and well, he'll accompany you wherever you go, just to make sure everything is okay." He did get some ball play action in the yard during his field trip where he would chase the ball and then proudly display it, our volunteers added, "He is one of those dogs where you wonder how many tennis balls he can pick up and hold at once? He was quite willing to trade one ball for another tossed ball so we didn't go for any records. He has been working on taking treats, toys and balls gently from your hand. With a bit more practice he will be able to show you how gentle he can be every time. Offer him a treat then wait, and he may offer you a woof, just to remind you he's ready for it." Gwumbo doesn't always love his feet being touched, so we are requiring that any children in his new home are 10 or older. He can be selective of the other dogs he shares his space with so we will be providing dog introductions to potential adopters who already have a resident dog to see if Gwumbo and his new friend are a good match.Adoption Fee: $200
