WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
ARE YOU A GIRL OR A BOY?
I am a boy!
HOW OLD ARE YOU?
WHAT BREED ARE YOU?
I am a darling pit bull mix
HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH?
Approximately 40 pounds
WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE?
I am a tripawd! I had my back right leg amputated, but I get around very well with my other three legs! I have white and tan coloring with a compact body, lower to the ground with big paws. I have beautiful light green/yellow eyes and the MOST amazing ears that perk up with a fold. I am the absolute cutest boy, if I do say so myself!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO EAT?
I like to eat regular dog food and treats. My foster mom is currently feeding me Purina One lamb and rice formula and I have done well with this diet.
WHAT KIND OF PERSONALITY DO YOU HAVE?
I am a very playful and sweet puppy and I love other dogs and people. Sometimes, it may seem like I am scared or nervous when meeting new people and dogs, but I quickly warm up and show my belly for rubs and love. I love to play with my foster dog brothers and my foster cat siblings. I am also respectful and am learning boundaries from my Chihuahua foster brother, Oreo, who thinks he is the fun police. When I am tired and it is nap time, I love to jump on the couch and snuggle up with whomever is there, dog or human.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY:
My perfect day would be hanging out with my foster brothers downstairs and having a yard to run in with them.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TOY?
My favorite toys are anything that I can play tug-o-war with. I also love tearing up stuffed toys with a lot of stuffing.
DO YOU KNOW ANY TRICKS?
I do not know any fancy tricks yet, but I have perfected a basic “sit” and I am so proud of myself for being a smart boy!
WHAT SCARES YOU?
I am sometimes nervous when someone is standing over me to pick me up, and I get a little overwhelmed when I first meet new people and dog friends.
HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND CHILDREN? DO YOU LIKE THEM?
I currently live with a 10-year-old child, and I love her so much! She is great to lay around and hangout with. She always has her friends over and I love them too! I get to hang with her and her friends a lot since my crate is in her room for the nights.
DO YOU LIKE CATS?
I am curious and try to play with cats if they let me. I give them their space but will make attempts to play. When my foster sibling cats swipe at me, I get excited and think they want to play—I am a puppy, after all! But I am mindful to keep my distance and respect their space. When my cat siblings are sleeping, I am doing such a good job learning not to disturb them.
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OTHER DOGS?
With a slow introduction, I can make friends with just about any dog that I meet! I am very submissive and love dogs of all sizes, especially big ones I can tumble around with.
IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE?
Wherever my forever family is.
HOW IS YOUR HEALTH?
My health has been excellent since my leg amputation. I can move and get around like any other dog. I have not had any other medical issues.
WHO DO YOU LIVE WITH IN YOUR FOSTER HOME AND WHO IS YOUR CLOSEST COMPANION?
In my foster home, I have three resident dog foster brothers and a brother named Dante, who is also a foster like me. I also live with two cats who stay upstairs. My favorite brother to play with is my biggest brother, Sage, who is a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. He is my best bud. Even though I am a lot smaller than Sage, I am durable, and I have the best time rough housing with him. I also enjoy hanging out with my other foster brother, Dante.
WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE?
When I am home alone, I stay safe in my crate.
WHERE DO YOU SLEEP?
I sleep in my comfy crate upstairs in my human foster sister’s room.
DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH?
Walking on a leash was hard to get used to at first, but I am getting more comfortable with it all the time. I like being taken outside on small walks in the grass area to potty. I love to explore all the smells of the different plants and flowers.
DO YOU HAVE ANY "NOT-SO-GREAT" HABITS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT? FOR INSTANCE, DO YOU BARK OR DIG IN THE YARD?
My foster mom does not have a yard, so I am mostly on leash when I go outside. I occasionally bark in the morning when it is time to wake up, and I can hear the other dogs moving around. Sometimes I get nervous when being picked up.
ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED? (MEANING DO YOU GO POTTY OUTSIDE)
Since I had my leg amputated, I’ve fallen a little behind on potty training, but I am getting back to a regular routine.
DO YOU LIKE WATER?
I love to drink water and do not mind stepping in the wet/damp grass in the morning. I have not experienced a water hose or pool yet.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY?
My foster mom and family have taken the best care of me after my amputation and have shown me that I am safe and loved. They have also helped me get over my fear of going down the stairs and being around other dogs. I love being with my foster brothers and humans. It makes me feel like I am part of the pack. I enjoy playing and being around them. Being able to spend time with them has made me a more confident and happier dog all around.
WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE BEING BROUGHT INTO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE?
My foster mom initially got a call that I was going into surgery for a fractured leg but was then called and informed that, due to infection, my entire leg was removed. But that is all in the past and I am ready to live my best tripawd life!
