Story
Yogi is special because we are his 1st home. We rescued him from the dog shelter in Arizona when he was only 8 weeks old back in 2019. My sister in law who lives in Arizona trained him and he eventually moved to California with us. Yogi loves to play fetch and loves being pet. He’s friendly around kids and around other dogs. He is loyal,playful,and obedient. We are rehoming him because we are not able to meet his needs. Our hands are full due to busy work schedule with a toddler and a new baby. We are looking for a forever home for Yogi that can take care of him responsibly.

Story
Smalls is a 2year old American Bully XL. He unfortunately is not getting along with our other dog. He is a BIG lover and just wants to be someones big baby. He knows basic commands sit, heal, stay etc and is potty trained. He needs to be in a home with no other pets. Needs exercise but can be lazy. Easy at home but probably should be in a home with kids 10 and older just due to his size and puppy behavior. We are absolutely devastated that we have to rehome him and any potential adopter will be FULLY VETTED!!!! . Vet reference required

Story
CHICA was a puppy mill breeder and then dumped on the streets where she lived for a year and got pregnant again. We pulled her out of the storms three days before she gave birth. She was SOOO relieved to have a safe and warm place to whelp and raise her babies, and she wanted me right by her side during the entire 24-hour labor, often leaning on me for support... while I promised she would never have to go through that again. CHICA is now spayed and has come a long way in socialization. She has learned to wag tail at strangers instead of bark. She does bark when other dogs walk by, but more out of jealousy than anything else. We think that she was never allowed indoors before since she took months to build up the courage to come inside. Now all she wants is to be somebody's couch potato! She is enthusiastic with affection and friendly with other dogs and even delivery drivers who she barks at until they come inside the yard to deliver a package, at which point she wags her tail and wants to say hello. ***CHICA displays no form of aggression except with a bit of FOOD GUARDING, as many street dogs do. It's also possible she was not fed enough as she was being used as a breeder. Since she is so friendly in every other way, this could be worked on.

Story
Meet DALILAH. This "used up" breeder was found chained to a fence in Stockton, emaciated, covered in flies and fleas and dried blood, and struggling to walk and breathe. After taking some time to gain her trust, we took her to an after-hours vet to make sure she had no urgent healthcare issues and got some antibiotics for her skin. Turns out she has the worst case of fleas I have ever seen. Even after the dose of Capstar from the vet and a very thorough wash and rinse while she just sat there with her head on my knee and let the fleas wash away in masses, she still had hundreds of them crawling around and trying to get off of her. We will trim her nails and dose her with a longer-term flea medication and some dewormer, which is likely what has caused her distended belly and maybe her malnutrition, almost certainly anemia. We'll schedule her for our intro vet package (thorough health check, vaccinations, microchip), get some x-rays to determine why she has trouble walking, keep her inside for a while so the flies don't go back at it, get her on a regular diet, and hopefully she will be feeling and looking like herself... maybe for the first time ever. #DalilahTails.

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 was born in September 2015. 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.
