Story
Topaz is a handsome, young Scott American Bulldog, born 3/27/2021. He is a super snuggly, very smart boy who knows basic commands (sit/stay/down/shake/kennel) and is looking for a home that can help boost his confidence and provide him with consistency and love so that his goofy, fun-lovin' personality can shine. Topaz prefers adult conversation and company. He's totally down for chill, adult-only dinner parties on the patio and will settle right in for an evening of fireside chats. Topaz chuckles and rolls his eyes when you ask about his potty behavior, "Are you kidding me? Of course I'm housetrained... who would do that inside." This smart boy is crate trained, 5 stars on a leash (enjoys walks), and so eager to please. He loves car rides, the open road, and you by his side. Topaz, as your forever buddy, will snuggle up in bed and is always up for a night of Netflix and popcorn after a busy day. Due to some experiences he had as a young pup, Topaz will require more than one meeting because he can be slow to trust new people. However, once you've made it into his circle of trust, he's all yours with lots of love to give! Apply today to meet Topaz and see if you're his match!  The suggested adoption fee for Topaz is $365. Bullies-N-Beyond ResQ is a non-profit corporation that is 100% volunteer operated. Adoption fees are the primary source of funding for the cost of veterinary care for our animals. All dogs adopted through BNBR are adopted with DHPP, Rabies, Lepto and Bordetella. All dogs will also be adopted out as already spayed or neutered if old enough, or a voucher will be provided once the dog becomes of age. The adoptions for all of our animals will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver. BNBR does not adopt on a first serve basis. All available dogs are adopted based on their needs to provide the best fit home. ##1632418##

Story
Diesel (10/30/2018) a Boxer/Corgi mix.  Diesel has a heart as big as his paws.  He loves to lounge in the sun while watching the bunnies and birds.  He thinks he is part of the neighborhood watch monitoring everything going on.  He loves to run around the backyard.  He would be best as the only dog in the home.  He loves to be a part of the family and is amazing with kids.  In his spare time, he will steal your water bottle, go on walks, napping, snoring and playing with his squeaker toys.  Diesel is laid-back and will lay all over your bed, and get all the cuddles.  Can you provide Diesel with his furever home and lots of belly rubs? The suggested adoption donation for Diesel is $375, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training).

Story
Groot (10/31/21) is a Boxer/Pitbull mix.  We are getting to know Groot but here is what we know.  He would do best in a home with no children or older children (16+ years old).  He would love a home that someone could be home with him for most of the day, he isn’t fond of being alone.  He does need a home that would be consistent with continued training and building his confidence.  Can you give Groot his furever home?
