Millie in Lake County, CA – Special Needs Senior – – Urgent
Millie needs a new place due to the loss of her owner’s home. She is an energetic 10yo girl who loves to walk but also enjoys being a lazy indoor girl. This silly girl is great with kids and other dogs. Millie survived an attack by a neighbor’s dog when she was 5; and she had to have a tracheostomy (procedure to cut into the trachea to allow breathing). The opening needs to be cleaned at least once a day; and she must be kept away from water (no swimming) and carefully bathed to ensure that water does not get into the opening as she can choke or drown. Instead of wearing a collar, she’ll need to wear a harness to protect the opening and avoid things from falling into it. Other than that, this 34lb girl is a picture of health. She is house (uses a doggy door) and leash trained and may need a refresher on crate training. Does anyone have room in your home to foster/foster-to-adopt this wonderful little girl? She still has so much life to her and enjoys each day to its fullest! If your information is not yet on file, our application can be found here: http://www.bullterrierrescue.org/?page_id=572. Thank you for any consideration! ~Suz

Meet 4yo Claxxton (born 12/3/11) who needs a new foster/foster-to-adopt home due to housing and harmony issues (he is not getting along with the female BT in his home that was an addition to the family last year). His family has worked with a trainer for seven months and he is still not accepting the young female. He has been fine with the Labs in his home; and he seems to be good with other dogs outside of his home unless they get snarky with him. This sweet, 60lb guy is house, crate and leash trained. His ideal home is one without other pets. Claxxton is a former show dog who has points towards Championship but he is now retired and neutered.

Meet 2yo Penny! She loves to play fetch but like any bully, she wants you to chase her to get the ball back. Despite her 35lbs, when she plays tug-of-war she will wrestle until she wins! She loves playing with the resident Chihuahua male and going to parks to meet new friends. She can be a bit sassy when it comes to sharing her toys and food but this can be easily managed with supervised play and separate feedings. When play time is finally over, Penny loves to cuddle besides you and her adorable face is irresistible. Penny has been house trained but she will neeed a refresher on crate and leash training.

Nikki is an adorable 4yo girl who came into our program when her family was faced with housing issues. This 47lb girl loves other dogs and although she hasn’t been around many children, her gentle demeanor would be great for the younger ones. Nikki is crate, house and leash trained. Her skin infections (due to being an outside dog for a few years) are nearly resolved and it’s now just a matter of weekly medicated baths. She has more of a bulldog build but that might go away as her weight is reduced.

This wonderful little 1y4m (born September 2014) guy is simply delightful. Stuart is smart, people-focused and super playful. He isn’t good with small dogs but is social with medium/large dogs that are non-reactive to him. In his foster home, he has been great with the resident female Bull Terrier but can butt heads with the male Bull Terrier that is almost the same age. He is crate, house and leash trained. His energy level can be high but that’s typical for a Bull Terrier his age. Lots of exercise and activities will help re-channel a lot of that energy. Stuart has been good around children 5 and older; he is not a fan of the kitties.
Super sweet Karma is a two year old, 40lb fawn girl (born 12/28/13) who needs another home due to a pending divorce. Karma is great with children (is gentle with the 6, 10 and 13 year old kids in the family) as well as a Bouvier and another female Bull Terrier. We’re not sure how she is with cats. She is crate, leash and house trained, although the past few weeks all the dogs had accidents but it may be due to the changes in the home. She has a likely ear infection and has some itchy skin patches so we’d like to find a foster/foster-to-adopt spot for her.

7mo Finn was adopted from a local shelter about two months ago. He is not good with the cats in the home; and he is getting into fights with the resident 4yo male Pug. It could be a territorial thing as he gets along and loves playing with other dogs outside of the house (he plays with, and nicely takes to corrections issued by the neighbor’s two older male dogs). The icing on the cake was when a friend stuck her leg between the Pug and Finn to avert a fight and Finn accidentally bit her instead (he instantly let go when he realized that he bit her and not the Pug). His owner has done a lot with sweet Finn in the two months that he’s been with her. He is now obedience, crate, house and leash trained. Any one interested in fostering/fostering-to-adopt this little guy? He’ll need a owner who won’t be afraid to stay on top of him since he’ll be approaching his teen angst period. Finn is about 40-45lbs.
Bruce is a deaf 1.5-2yo Bull Terrier X American Staffordshire Terrier mix. He is absolutely wonderful on a leash, he is good with other dogs and loves humans so much he can hardly stand it. Bruce may be a bit too big and clumsy for younger children. Though he is deaf he never seems to be out of earshot, he’s very in tune with his people and as an added bonus he’s QUIET! I have only heard him bark a handful of times and only when trying to get his dog pals to stop ignoring him. Bruce’s ideal adopter would have a heartbeat and a couch and he would probably appreciate a dog pal to run and wrestle with. Bruce is being fostered by Dana Christine Johnson (@buriedinbullies on Instagram) if you’d like to see more pictures or ask any questions.
Sprung from the Monterey shelter on 8/26, this little jewel is very sweet and calm. She’s a quiet girl so far who has had several litters but those days are now behind her. Rosi is about 3-4 years old; and she weighs in around 40lbs. She didn’t seem to mind other dogs; we do not know how she is with kids or kitties. Please stay tuned for more updates on this sweet girl!
