Owen in Encino, CA – Mini

Owen
Owen is a Miniature Bull Terrier who was found in the L.A. streets with severe mange. He has recovered from that and is ready for his new home. Owen’s a very interesting young man – he seems to have a doggy form of agoraphobia in which he almost panics in wide open spaces.  He doesn’t get aggressive, he just wants to escape or run behind you. A home where he explore the world in incremental slices would be his ideal spot. He can be good with dogs on a short-term basis as long as the introduction is slow and careful.  This 35lb guy is house, crate and leash trained. He is so eager to please – – he has learned tricks such as “Roll Over” and “Play Dead” when shot with your fingers.  His PLL (Primary Lens Luxation) status is Clear.  Information about this condition that affects some Miniature Bull Terriers can be found here: http://www.aht.org.uk/cms-display/genetics_pll.html. If your information is not yet on file, please complete our application which can be found here: http://www.bullterrierrescue.org/?page_id=572.

Trace in Porterville, CA – Adoption Pending

TraceSmileName TraceDrainsNameOur heartstrings were pulled in a major way when the shelter called us about Trace who is about 7-8 years old – he was not walking and was so depressed. We rescued this sweet guy and after vetting, antibiotics, surgery to remove abscesses on one of his front legs, and a wonderful diet from his foster mom, he is good as new!  He is great with other dogs and finds horses interesting in a good way.  His energy level is pretty low and he is one of most affectionate guys you’ll ever meet. Do you have a spot for this wonderful 45lb guy to hang his hat?

Rocky in Sebastopol, CA – Adoption Pending

RockySmileNameRocky became homeless when the mobile home park his family was living on closed. This 15mo guy is super sweet and so people-focused.  He hasn’t been taught any manners but he should learn them quickly as he is so eager to please. Rocky is being crate trained at our interim boarding kennel and he’ll some house training as he lived outside or in the garage in his former home.  He was wonderful with the three toddlers in his former family but his energetic antics might accidentally knock down the little ones.  Although he did not live with other dogs, he was good with the ones in the mobile home park.  We do not know how this 45lb guy is with the kitties.

Stubby – Livermore, CA – In Foster-to-Adopt Home

StubbyMeet Stubby!  He is a young and fun Miniature Bull Terrier who is looking for a foster home!  He liked to chase his tail; but he hasn’t done since we had him sport a snug teeshirt.   Stubby is hanging out at a Livermore kennel since we are packed to the rafters everywhere.  If you have room for a 1-2 year old guy who might require a bit of patience if he starts chasing his tail, Stubby would sure appreciate it.  He’s only 30lbs so he promises not to take up much room! His PLL status: CLEAR.

Oscar in San Francisco, CA

OscarSitMedNameMeet Oscar, a delightful almost 4.5yo (born 4/26/12) guy who is extremely affectionate and people focused.  His energy level is about moderate although you need stand back when he does his daily zoomies around the house.  Oscar is dog-selective…he has met two of my neutered male Bull Terriers without any issues, however he has bitten two Bulldogs in his prior home.  The injuries were not serious (and there’s a chance that he was being territorial).  Taking this into account, we are looking for a home that is experienced with dogs that do not play well with others.  He’s one of the happiest dogs that you’ll ever meet and as much as he loves going on walks, he loves going back home even more and will occasionally bark with joy when he’s approaching the house. Oscar is about 65lbs; and he is house, crate and leash trained.

Patch in Sebastopol, CA

PatchNameI’m Patch! I am a neutered 2 y/o high energy boy. I am a sturdy guy with 50lbs. of love to give. I love my ball so much I will choose it over treats any day! I’ve learned to wait for you to give me my ball but sometimes I just can’t wait. They are all so proud of me because I could care less about other dogs and walk right by, but if they snarf at me I won’t back down so I like other mellow friends. They don’t give me any drama! My dream home would be someone who is home all the time and has no kids. I really would love a family who is very active. If your information is not on file, our application can be found here:http://www.bullterrierrescue.org/?page_id=572.
