Bruce – Livermore, CA (Deaf) – Adopted!

BruceNDanaBruce 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.

Rosi – Monterey, CA – ADOPTED!

RosiSmileNameSprung 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!

Marshall – Las Vegas, NV – ADOPTED!

MarshallNameMarshall entered our program when his owner fell seriously ill and required hospitalization (she’ll be unable to care for herself if/when she’s discharged and she does not have a network of dog-savvy friends and family).  Marshall is a laidback guy who is about 7 years old. He was raised with 3 Shih Tzus and a German Shepherd without any issues. He can be a bit reserved when he first meets you but he’ll be your best buddy within 20-30 minutes.  Does anyone have a sofa that Marshall can share with you?  He is crate, leash, house and sofa trained. This sweet guy is about 7 years old; and he weighs in at 40lbs.

Margie – Turlock, CA – ADOPTED!

MargieName2Margie is a delightful socialite who loves dogs of all sizes (she counts a trio of doxies as her best friends) and doesn’t seem to mind cats (at the shelter, she sniffed the cats in the Cat Room and moved on to the people there). She is mellow and gentle enough to be around younger children without any issues. This little muffin isn’t a runner nor hiker; but she would gladly take marathon naps on your sofa. Margie is about 2 years old…she weighs in at about 45lbs. Does anyone have a lonely couch that needs an occupant? If anyone has room for an affectionate gal, our application can be found here:



Lena – Visalia, CA – ADOPTED!

LenaLittle Lena. We rescued 2 year old Lena from the shelter along with her two young pups. Her puppy Oona found a loving home, but her other pup didn’t make it. Lena was underweight, neglected, and fearful of everything. She has come a long way with the help of her amazing foster family. She would love a forever family to give her time and patience to finish healing mentally and give her the love she deserves! She currently lives with kids (including toddlers) and does great with them. She is very mellow, except for a good daily hucklebutt, and has the sweetest soul. She would prefer to be an only fur child. This funny 30lb girl enjoys sleeping in the most uncomfortable places, such as sock drawers, toy boxes, and cleared book shelves. She could use some confidence on a leash, she is house trained, and wonderful in her crate. Here is a little video of her happy dance: you can also find more pics of her on Instagram. @bull_terrier_rescue_inc #btriLENA

Sasha – Sebastopol, CA – ADOPTED!

SashaNameSasha is such a pretty girl. She is about 2 years old; and she still has a lot of puppy energy. Sasha has been playing well with Big Red so it’s safe to say she is dog friendly. She is a busy girl but can’t resist some good lovin’ once she settles. We would love to see her in an active foster or forever home! Sasha is crate trained and will likely need a refresher in crate and house training.

Juan – Sacramento, CA – ADOPTED!

JuanSitNameAlright… now this young guy is CUTE! Juan is so super easy, very laid back. Walks great on a leash. Kinda just goes with the flow. The shelter staff said he was scared of his own shadow, but we didn’t see anything too concerning. He did cower when we picked up a bag of treats too quickly. When feels like he’s not getting enough attention, he likes to nip on your hands while on his back. Juan is good with medium/large dogs but might be too interested in the little ones. He is crate trained and may need a refresher on house training.


Daisy – Sebastopol, CA – ADOPTED!

DaisyMedDaisy girl. She has a sad story. She was part of a domestic violence situation. Daisy was in the home the night her owner shot his ex-girlfriend and her daughter before turning the gun on himself. The ex-girlfriend and daughter survived. Poor Daisy was part of an investigation so she had to stay in the shelter for a while until we were able to spring her. She is doing wellin our interim kennel but is in need of TLC and a person to help her PTSD. She is no longer afraid of gunshots, fireworks and M80s, but sirens will make her almost crawl up the wall. This girl needs a bully savvy home where she can relax and heal. Daisy is about 4 years old and about 45lbs. She is will need refreshers in crate, leash and house training. She plays rough with other dogs so we’d like to see her in a home where she’s the only pet, especially during her healing phase. She’s available for foster/foster-to-adopt as she will need to be spayed prior to permanent placement.

If you are interested in fostering Daisy please fill out an application here:


Maggie – Buena Park, CA – ADOPTED!

MaggieBeforeAfter2When the South Los Angeles shelter called us about a 4mo girl running the streets with severe mange, we just had to help her! Maggie has been lovingly fostered by Peggy Reynolds, and is now almost completely recovered after 4 months of TLC. Maggie has been spayed; and she is now ready for a few foster/forever home! This little muffin is now about 8 months old and weighs about 33lbs. She is extremely people-focused and loves to snuggle. The dogs in her foster home are extra exuberant or cranky so she has been a bit intimated by them. Her ideal home is a Bull Terrier experienced one where she is the only pet so that focus on socialization and structure (a bit of food aggression surfaces once in a blue moon but she is easily corrected)…but a home with a super submissive and gentle male might work. Maggie is crate and house trained but will need some work on a leash. If your information is not on file, please complete our application so that we can get to know you better: Thank you! ~Suz

Ruger (Deaf) – Seattle, WA – ADOPTED!

RugerSitNameRuger is a fun loving, energetic, deaf 53lb guy who is so happy about Life. He is 10 months old (born 9-15-14); and he is an affable guy who is happy to play by himself or with other dogs. Ruger learns very quickly and is very food motivated (he knows “no”, “look”, “yes”, “stop”, “sit”, “lie down” and “shake”). He is also a master counter and table surfer so that is in the process of being curbed. Ruger is tall and lean – – perfect for hikes, runs and even performance sports such as agility. This guy is simply delightful…he is great with all genders and ages (he’s is gentle with younger children as to not knock them over). Ruger is not a fan of the kitties.  If your information is not on file, please complete our application ( If you would like more information about this great little guy, please feel free to contact his foster dad, Bo, at
