Story
WHAT IS YOUR NAME? Hi! My Name is Angelo! ARE YOU A BOY OR A GIRL? I am a playful, happy young boy! HOW OLD ARE YOU? Best guess is I am around two years old! WHAT BREED ARE YOU? I am a Pit Bull (Staffy) mix! HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH? A nice and healthy 63 pounds! WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE? I am such a handsome boy! I have beautiful white fur with some super cute brown spots around my ears. Oh, and MY EARS... My ears are just AMAZING! My right ear has a mind of its own, always up for a party. And I have such an infectious smile. Every day is a happy new adventure, and my smile shows that I am ready for it! WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO EAT? I love my kibble and treats, but I also love liver, hot dogs, and especially peanut butter! OK, so yeah, I am not going to be particular about food. I love it ALL! WHAT KIND OF PERSONALITY DO YOU HAVE? I'm happy, affectionate, and playful. I am always up for a good time! Let's go meet some people! Let's go play with some dogs! Or, if you are feeling like some quiet time, I am SO ready for cuddles! DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY. I am happy with anything you want to do, but since you are asking for MY preferences... Let's start the day off right! A nice walk or jog to get the sleepies out. Then it's breakfast time, followed by a cozy nap. I would love to go on an adventure in the car or even another walk later in the day! The rest of the best day ever would, of course, involve more food, lots of playtime, and then the day ends with cuddles before bedtime. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TOY? I love to play with plushies! For some reason, the humans don't want me to pull the stuffing out... But isn't that what the stuffing is for?? If I don't have a plushie, I also love playing with my Kong toy filled with peanut butter. DO YOU KNOW ANY TRICKS? I have good recall if you just give me a whistle! I also know the basics... sit and stay, and I am always up for learning. I just need some guidance from you, and I am totally teachable! WHAT SCARES YOU? Not a lot scares me, including fireworks and vacuums! What a brave boy, right? Sometimes I am uncomfortable with loud voices, but that's just because I am such a happy boy, and I can't understand why anyone would be yelling like that! HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND CHILDREN? Yes, I have! I am actually very well-mannered around kids, but young ones may get me a bit overexcited, so I do best with older kids! DO YOU LIKE CATS? No, thanks. I’ll pass! HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OTHER DOGS? Oh boy! I just LOVE other dogs and am always up to play or hang out with them! IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE? First, I would always want to be wherever my humans are, of course. And if the humans happened to be at the park or a beach, that would be even better! HOW IS YOUR HEALTH? I'm a very healthy boy! WHO DO YOU LIVE WITH IN YOUR FOSTER HOME AND WHO IS YOUR CLOSEST COMPANION? I live with my foster parents, their young adult son, and my doggy foster brother and sister. I would say I'm closest to my foster mom because she keeps me safe, gives me lots of love, and has shown me how to be such a good boy! WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE? When I am home alone, I hang out in my crate with my toys and spend most of my time napping. WHERE DO YOU SLEEP? I sleep in my crate or on the floor next to my foster dad's bed. DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH? I love walking on a leash or on a harness. I just love being out and about sniffing and exploring! My foster family says I walk great! DO YOU HAVE ANY “NOT SO GREAT” HABITS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT? Hmm... I'm pretty close to perfect if I do say so myself! But I think if you asked my foster mom, she would say something about jumping up on people when I get excited. Ummm... yeah! I have to show you how happy I am to see you! But foster mom says that I am a big boy so I need to tone it down a little. I am working hard on it and will find other ways to show you I love you when I am greeting you. ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED (DO YOU GO POTTY OUTSIDE)? Yes! I'm perfectly house trained and will always let my family know when I need to potty. DO YOU LIKE WATER? I am such a good boy in the bath and enjoy going into the water at the beach. I'm up for anything, including water fun! WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY? I love that my foster family loves ME! They make sure that I am safe, that I have enough food to eat, give me lots of cuddles, and they take me on walks so I can explore the world. WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE BEING BROUGHT INTO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE? Nobody really knows how my first year went, but my foster family found me abandoned and hiding when they were out hiking one day. They took me home and reached out to NorCal Bully Breed rescue for help finding my forever home. I have learned what real love feels like and I am SO excited to find a family of my own. Are you willing to take me home and love me forever? ***Angelo's adoption fee is $300 *** If you are interested in adopting Angelo please jump on our website and fill out an adoption application - www.norcalbullybreedrescue.org ‼️At this time, we are asking for adopters to be in the Sacramento and IMMEDIATE surrounding areas.‼️ 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
WHAT IS YOUR NAME? Hi hi! My name is Luciano! ARE YOU A GIRL OR A BOY? I'm a good boy! HOW OLD ARE YOU? I turned eight years old in September 2023. WHAT BREED ARE YOU? American Staffordshire Terrier HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH? If I had a driver's license, it would say 60lbs. But I'm a few pounds over that. I won't judge if you don't. WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE? Handsome! I have the most AMAZING smile that will guarantee to make you happy just looking at me. My clipped ears are an often talked about feature. But the ladies tell me that my green eyes are mesmerizing. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO EAT? I am a good eater! I eat my kibble, but I also like sweet potatoes, Greek yogurt, watermelon and apples. WHAT KIND OF PERSONALITY DO YOU HAVE? Whoever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks was definitely not talking about me. I love to try new things. The more I am in new situations, the better I learn to handle it. Most days are pretty normal, though, and I've got a chill vibe with a large dose of loving. DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY: EAT! Walk. Sleep. Get some cuddles. Back to sleep. Play - I love the water most, but I also love tug-of-war or chase. I like brain games, too. Back to sleep. EAT! All I want to do after that is cuddle and sleep. My day is over! WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TOY? Believe it or not, my favorite thing to play with is water from the hose! DO YOU KNOW ANY TRICKS? Sit, Wait, Plotz (lay down), Shake, Return, Leave It, No, and Yes. I've been getting pretty good lately at staying in my designated spot when my foster mom opens the door to get a delivery, too. WOW, impressive, right? Yeah, I'm a pretty smart dude! WHAT SCARES YOU? I am not a huge fan of loud banging sounds. Does anyone really like them, though? HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND CHILDREN? DO YOU LIKE THEM? Yep! I love kids!! DO YOU LIKE CATS? Enh, no thanks... I am not a cat guy. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OTHER DOGS? I used to live with other dogs and did fine. I'm an only dog in the house now. As always with adult dogs, slow intros are required! IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE? On a human lap. Or a dog pool. That's a hard one. Maybe on your lap IN the pool? HOW IS YOUR HEALTH? Grrrreat! WHO DO YOU LIVE WITH IN YOUR FOSTER HOME AND WHO IS YOUR CLOSEST COMPANION? I live with my foster mom and human brother. I don't choose favorites. I know who to go to depending on what I want. WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE? I am such a good boy when I am alone! I just hang out on my comfy bed. WHERE DO YOU SLEEP? You guessed it... I am all about my bed! DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH? I LOVE walks! It has taken a lot of practice, but I am good on a leash. I do best with consistent rules. DO YOU HAVE ANY "NOT-SO-GREAT" HABITS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT? FOR INSTANCE, DO YOU BARK OR DIG IN THE YARD? I've been known to check the yard for weak spots and to patrol for cats, but when everything is cool, I just like to hang out in the yard and sunbathe. I don't bark much, only when I'm nervous or playing. You could go days and not hear me bark. I admittedly get excited when new people are in the house, or we pass a reactive dog on a walk. My foster mom has learned some strategies to help me calm down faster in these situations. She can teach you, too. ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED? (MEANING DO YOU GO POTTY OUTSIDE) Yep! Got that bit taken care of a long time ago! DO YOU LIKE WATER? Let's gooo! Water water water!! WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY? I love them most for cuddles and letting me spend more time outside in the world. WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE BEING BROUGHT INTO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE? I spent a lot of time in a crate and my experiences were very limited. But since I was saved from that life, I have learned how to enjoy every bit of love and fun that I can find. I am hoping to find a family that will give me as much love as I have to share with them. Will you take me home and love me forever? ***LUCIANO'S ADOPTION FEE IS $100.00*** If you are interested in Luciano please jump on our website and fill out an adoption application - www.norcalbullybreedrescue.org At this time we are asking for adopters to be in the Sacramento and IMMEDIATE surrounding areas.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Norah is approximately 7 months old. She came from the Stockton shelter where one of our RPNC volunteers first heard about her and started fostering her. Norah was a medical foster due to her having a prolapsed rectum. She's had two surgeries to repair her colon and after a long recovery period Norah is ready to find her forever home. Norah will need to stay on special food through her life and it will be important for her new family to understand her medical condition. There is a possibility that she will need to have another surgery by a specialist. However, her foster has been able to control her condition with diet and we are hopeful her new family will be able to do the same. Norah is a typical 6 month old puppy. She loves to play, play, play. She currently lives with 2 other dogs; a younger dog and an older dog. She does great with both. Plays with the younger dog and respects the older dog. She also lives with a cat, that she likes to chase. We think with boundaries and more training she could live with a dog savvy cat. She loves all peoples. She is house and crate trained but is still learning the command "go to bed" to go into her crate on command and she is still learning the basics such as sit. Altough Norah is your typical active puppy, she can also chill out and chew on a nyla bone for hours. Norah would be a fantastic addition to any family. She is one of those dogs that fits in with everyone. If you are interested in Norah, you can fill out an application here.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.April 10, 2024, 1:23 pm

Story
Meet Liam! Liam is a big goofball and an even bigger cuddle bug. He always wants to be part of the action, and LOVES to be by his people. He loves to curl up on the couch and be a lap dog… despite being 75 lbs. While in foster care Liam has been working on his house-training, crate training, basic commands and walking on a leash. We guess he's about 3 years old. Liam is a big love bug with a lot of love to give! He loves to play with stuffed toys, but will go bonkers for a bone! He also enjoys peanut butter kongs as a nice treat. Liam loves to give and receive big hugs from his favorite humans. Liam previously lived nicely with other big dogs, but after a long time in a very stressful shelter he started to get over-excited at dogs behind barriers. He is working on this while in foster care and has already made good progress. He has met a couple cats as well in foster care. He does not have a high prey drive, but he also is still learning how to interact with them. He likely did not live with cats previously. Liam has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his vaccinations. Bring home this goofball to his forever family today! Liam is a collaboration between our rescue and Better World Rescue in Tracy, CA info@betterworldrescue.org- email them or contact us. Interested in meeting Liam?

Story
Meet Duke- Senior Pittie! Duke was pulled from a shelter in Los Angeles. He was the longest living resident of the shelter and had quite a few people networking him. We were able to find a foster and so we saved him from euthanasia on the last day he had to live. Duke is a super sweet dude, and since he is originally from Sothern California, he has not lost that chill vibe. Duke is an 8 year old Staffordshire terrier mix. He loves nothing more than to spend time and be petted by pretty much anyone. With his mellow personalitym he doesn't require much exercise, but he does currently walk the block four times a day with an occasional break in a grassy shady spot. He LOVES people so much, he tries to hang back on our walks if he sees someone familiar or new so he can say hello. Duke is crate trained. He sleeps thru the night and is quiet but will let you know if he needs to go outside. He's a mellow coach potato and would love to watch movies with you. Duke loves car rides and the occasional pup cup from your favorite coffee drive thru. He may also do fine with respectful kids. Duke is on medication for arthritis, but otherwise no health issues. He is living with quite a few dogs, but is not interacting with them. We would prefer he be the only dog, so he can be showered with undivided love and attention for his golden years. Interested in meeting Duke and giving him a pampered life in his golden years? Let us know! *Call or text 833-473-7364 or *Send an email to sacrdroperations@gmail.com (including your phone number) or *Message us on social media @resilientdogrescue or *Inquire using the Adopt a Pet system - be sure to include your phone number We look forward to hearing from you!

Story
Courtesy Post - this is not a Resilient Dog Rescue Dog. We are assisting owner with rehoming. Hello! My name is Remi Rae and I’m a handsome, easy-going guy. Although I often look quite serious in my photos, I have a silly side and happily indulge my foster mom when she makes me bear the indignity of wearing costumes and clothes. Also, I’m the best wiggle butt greeter there is! Quick Facts: My foster mom did my DNA and I am: 21.6% American Staffordshire Terrier 21.6% American Bully 7.8% Labrador Retriever 7.2% American Bulldog 4.8% Border Collie Gender: Male Age: 2 ½ years old (a/o Dec 2023) Size: 75 pounds Good with dogs: I need to work on my socialization skills. I live with my sister but she and I have been butting heads for a while. My Mom and Dad split up, and we're having a hard time. Good with cats: I have never been around a cat but if they are anything like a squirrel, I would probably chase them Good with kids: I have been around kids older than 12 years and I did great with them. I have never been around any younger kids. History: My mom adopted me from Front Street Animal Shelter in July of 2022. My sister and I were found on the streets and brought in together. Personality: I’m a pretty mellow guy. My day starts about 6 am when Grandma feeds me breakfast. I like kibble with wet food and a little cottage cheese mixed in. Then she makes me rest for an hour before I can go outside to do my business. I enjoy a good walk but I like to pull and sometimes I bark at other dogs. I need some work on that. I can sit and laydown and I’m really good at coming in the house when my name is called. I love these cookies that my mom buys. I like to take them to my bed and munch them up. Sometimes my mom will give me a chip or a piece of popcorn but I don’t understand how to eat them. I just put them in my mouth but then I drop them because they are weird. I would rather a piece of salami or a piece of cheese. When we play outside in the backyard, I prefer frisbees over balls. I have a fascination with the water hose. Sometimes when my mom waters the trees I try and eat the water that squirts out. After we play for a while, I like to lay in the sun on my Kuranda bed. My Grandma makes me come in and take a nap during the day which is great because I love to nap on the couch or on my dog bed. I eat dinner around 5 pm and my mom, again, makes me wait an hour before I can go outside to do my business. Something about me running around with food in belly and my stomach twisting? I dunno, she said it’s for my own good so I just listen to her. In the evening we usually lounge on the couch and watch T.V. My mom will rub my belly which I LOVE! She’s a good belly rubber. After that it’s time for bed on my dog bed. I have not been crate trained but I like my dog bed. Favorite Activities: • Eating • Running Around the Yard • Going for Walks • Napping • Getting Belly Rubs I am looking for a new home because my sister and I just don’t get along anymore. I am the more mellow of the two of us. She is high strung and just gets on my nerves so we have had a few spats. I don’t want to fight with her anymore and since I am so easy going my mom thinks it would be easier to find me a quiet, loving home than to find my sister another home. If you're looking for an easy-going, loving guy who just wants some peace and quiet and a warm, safe place to lay his head - oh, and maybe a belly rub from time to time - then I’m your guy!

Daughter brought blue home when she was several weeks old. We bottle fed her and planned to re home her in the first year. She just grew on us and we kept her for over four years. But now she’s too big for our space and she needs more attention than I can provide, both my daughters have since left my home. She also is very active and needs to be taken on walks and have a large running area.

Story
WHAT IS YOUR NAME? Hi! I’m Gigi! I need to be the ONLY DOG in your home. If that sounds good to you, please read on! I’d love to meet you! ARE YOU A GIRL OR A BOY? A very cute girl! HOW OLD ARE YOU? About 3 years old WHAT BREED ARE YOU? I am the cutest little bulldog mix. HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH? 26 pounds of cuteness. WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE? I am petite and stocky with short legs, gray and white fur, and a little crooked nubby tail. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO EAT? I like to eat everything! I eat my kibble and I love treats. I love fruits and vegetables too! WHAT KIND OF PERSONALITY DO YOU HAVE? If I were a sauce, I would be Sriracha! I am spicy and oh so sweet! I can be pushy, but I am learning commands like sit, stay, leave it, and also where my “spot” is. I am very trainable! I have no knowledge of personal space. I am very happy and social. I love people and absolutely love to cuddle! I am playful but also lazy and love to lay on your lap and nap while you are watching TV. Sometimes at night I do zoomies and will try to pounce on you, almost like I am a cat! When this happens, a toy will distract me and keep me busy. Want to play tug?? DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY: My perfect day is spent with you! I wake up, do a big stretch and immediately want to have breakfast. I run right into the kitchen even before I have gone potty. I then go potty and have a short walk outside. I like to go on walks but not too far since my legs are so short. I love going for car rides more than walks so a car ride somewhere would make me really happy. Then home to relax and take a nap. I love to lay on you or sit on your lap while you are on the couch. I then would love to play with some toys, maybe tug on a rope. After play time, I am usually asleep and snoring by 8pm. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TOY? I love Kong toys filled with treats or Benebone or Nylabone. I love playing tug with rope toys. Playing tug is my absolute favorite game. DO YOU KNOW ANY TRICKS? I know how to sit, leave it, and go to my “spot.” I am still working on some other training commands. WHAT SCARES YOU? Sometimes loud noises if I hear them when I am out walking. HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND CHILDREN? DO YOU LIKE THEM? I have been around older children and I love them very much. No children under 13 please, though. Little kids just don’t understand that I’m an excited little bulldozer sometimes! DO YOU LIKE CATS? No thanks, I’ll pass. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OTHER DOGS? I need to be an only dog. I am queen of my castle! All the love is mine! IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE? Right next to you! And also in the car would be great! I love car rides. HOW IS YOUR HEALTH? My health is great! WHO DO YOU LIVE WITH IN YOUR FOSTER HOME AND WHO IS YOUR CLOSEST COMPANION? I live with my foster mom and her teen daughter. I think I like my foster mom the best because she feeds me and I am a total foodie! WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE? I stay in my crate when I am home alone. Nobody wants me chewing a shoe, ok? WHERE DO YOU SLEEP? I sleep in a soft cozy bed inside of my crate. DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH? I do like walking on a leash but I don’t like walking very far. My legs are very short! DO YOU HAVE ANY "NOT-SO-GREAT" HABITS THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT? FOR INSTANCE, DO YOU BARK OR DIG IN THE YARD? I am pretty sure foster mom is grateful that I can protect her from the scary vacuum, so I do my best to put on my “tough girl” stance and tell it to back off. I also love to get into the bathroom trash, dumpster dive! Not sure if it is a bad habit since I can’t help it, but I snore really loud! It’s actually cute if you ask me. ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED? (MEANING DO YOU GO POTTY OUTSIDE) I am housetrained. DO YOU LIKE WATER? I tolerate it for my bath and will go outside to potty in the rain but it is not my favorite. I am heavy and have very short legs so I probably wouldn’t be able to swim. No pools please! WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY? They give me so much love and attention. I am not sure if I ever had that much love before. They make me a part of everything, and I feel so special. And of course, they give me treats and toys to play with!! WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE BEING BROUGHT INTO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE? I was found as a stray and ended up in the shelter. No one came for me. That’s all in the past now and I am ready to find my forever home. Are you ready to bring me home and love me forever? ***GIGI’S ADOPTION FEE IS $300*** If you are interested in Gigi please jump on our website and fill out an adoption application - www.norcalbullybreedrescue.org For more information on where we adopt to and why that is, please click on the following link: https://www.facebook.com/333019703483910/posts/3264412130344638/?extid=0&d=nThank you so much in advance for understanding!!!

I am 50 pounds of muscle. WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE? I am a tan little muscular boy with a big smile and an even bigger heart. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO EAT? I love my food and treats as well. I have discovered that I enjoy fruit as well like bananas, blueberries and apples. WHAT KIND OF PERSONALITY DO YOU HAVE? I am a pretty chill little man that loves his chew toys. DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY: My perfect day starts with grabbing my favorite toy and heading outside to do a little sniffing around. Then I take care of business and head back in the house to get breakfast. I usually like to fall back to sleep while chewing on my favorite toy. I nap most of the day, potty, eat, play…the simple things in life make me happy! WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TOY? I love all toys that I can chomp down on, but I do have a pink rubber ball that is my favorite. DO YOU KNOW ANY TRICKS? I have learned how to sit and I have discovered that I get treats when I do it. So, I sit even before I am asked to now. WHAT SCARES YOU? Loud noises like vacuums and fireworks scare me. HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND CHILDREN? DO YOU LIKE THEM? I do like children, but I don’t like to share my toys, so no children under 13 please. DO YOU LIKE CATS? No cats please. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OTHER DOGS? I have been through a lot in my past, so I would like to get all of the attention. No other doggies please. IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE? I would like to be anywhere where I get lots of love and treats. HOW IS YOUR HEALTH? I am a healthy boy. WHO DO YOU LIVE WITH IN YOUR FOSTER HOME AND WHO IS YOUR CLOSEST COMPANION? I currently live with my foster mom. Her boyfriend comes over frequently and I love to lay on his lap. WHERE DO YOU HANG OUT WHEN YOU ARE HOME ALONE? I hang out in my crate. WHERE DO YOU SLEEP? I sleep in my crate. It is my safe, cozy space and I can relax and just be chill in there. DO YOU LIKE WALKING ON A LEASH? I like walking on my leash. I like to carry my pink ball with me as I walk on my 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 do like to steal brooms and chew them up, so brooms should be out of my sight. I also like to bark when playing with my pink toy outside. ARE YOU HOUSE TRAINED? Heck yeah! I am all good with the potty stuff… no worries there! DO YOU LIKE WATER? I run to the bathroom for bath/shower time! Swimming? I am not built for water sports, so let’s make it a team effort to keep me safe from pools and other large bodies of water, okay? WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER FAMILY? I have learned that people aren’t so bad. I get lots of cuddles and treats! WHAT WAS YOUR LIFE LIKE BEFORE BEING BROUGHT INTO NORCAL BULLY BREED RESCUE? I had a not so good life before coming to NorCal Bully Breed Rescue. I was brought in after being shot in the head and arm. (Yikes, right? Scary!) But I am so lucky that NorCal Bully Breed Rescue took me in and nursed me back to health. I have put all that behind me now and I am doing great! I am looking for my forever home that can give me lots of love! Maybe you are looking for a chill guy who just wants to be loved and have a few toys to play with? I promise to love you for the rest of my life and give you lots of cuddles and kisses! ***KOA’s ADOPTION FEE IS $100** If you are interested in Koa please jump on our website and fill out an adoption application - www.norcalbullybreedrescue.org For more information on where we adopt to and 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!!
