Story
Violet is the most joyful and lovable gal! She is SO happy to be alive and makes sure you know how grateful she is every second! Having a bad day? Violets smile will light up the WHOLE room. She is a cuddly girl that is happy to be around her person and will be happy to do anything with you! Want a chill day on the couch? Vi approves! Want to take a 3 hour hike? Vi also approves! She is a very adaptable gal! Violet is searching for her new bff! Could that be you? Violet is a smaller pittie mix, around 55lbs and is all muscle! She is a young dog but clearly has been bred multiple times. She has done great with other dogs her size or bigger with slow introductions. Violet is fully potty trained, leash trained, crate trained, and will happily nap in her crate if you need to leave her home while you go out. She is energetic and loves to play just as much as she loves to snuggle! Violet has some prey drive to small animals so no small dogs or cats. Because of how jumpy and mouthy she can get when she plays or gets excited, we believe she would do best and thrive in a home with kits 10+ only. She has been working on this with a trainer and has improved so so much! Violet has spent 6 weeks with a credible balanced trainer @boooshank (IG) and has made a lot of progress and learning to slow down and think before just acting, which is HUGE for her. She has struggled with being bale to control her impulses because of her prey drive but with working with @boooshank, she has been able to let the chickens be friends and not want to eat them when walking by! Whoever takes a chance on Violet gets a lot of AMAZING training perks from her trainer Lee! Violet comes with lifetime assistance from him, group classes for her whole life and 1:1 lessons, boarding options and priority swimming pool slots! Violet is currently being fostered in Woodland, CA. If you would like to meet Violet, please fill out an adoption application on our website www.californiabullyrescue.org/adopt.

Story
Who wants to chill with this meatball every night?!? Nugget is a great companion dog - medium energy, he loves walks especially when followed by naps and/or chews, and he's a champion sunbather. Nugs is crate trained, improving on place, walks well on leash, and with distance and treats (as a distraction) he's learning to ignore his triggers (lawn mowers, bicycles, and bouncing basketballs. Nugget is slow to trust - he needs time to get to know you - but once he trusts you he's a total cuddle bug who melts when given affection. He's dog friendly and has been non-reactive to cats that we've seen on walks (he does not live with a cat currently). Nugget has been to a board & train with Royal K9 to work through some sensitivities. He is overstimulated with loud noises, high pitched noises/voices, or just too much going on, so no kids would be best for this guy. He loves a quiet, calm home with a routine that can give him his space, but love him when he wants it. He's a very independent boy that loves to sploot in the sun and wear hoodies. The trainers said there is no doubt he would bond deeply with his person and be the most loyal companion. Location: Lakewood, CA

He’s name is Apollo he is 7 years old, he’s been with us since he was 2 months old. He’s very sweet and he sleeps a lot. I can’t have him anymore because I can not afford it also I can not give him the time and attention he deserves and lastly my apartment complex doesn’t let me have him. So my only option is to find him a home where he is loved and he gets the attention he needs
