Rocky is a wonderful 2.5yo, 45lb guy who has been in 4 different homes in his young life. Rocky’s second owner placed him with relatives after his male Bull Terrier kept attacking Rocky. Rocky wasn’t getting enough exercise and attention in that home so he was placed with friends. Unfortunately, he got out from that home and was hit by a car. His second owner took him back in and paid for extensive surgery on Rocky’s leg. The rod from Rocky’s leg will be removed on May 17. We are now looking for the fifth and final home for this sweet boy. He is great with children of all ages (including a newborn) and is best with submissive dogs as he will now get defensive if another dog gets testy with him. He has been great with a roommate’s cat. Rocky is crate and house trained but needs some work on a leash as he can pull during a walk.

Maverick – Gilroy, CA – Foster Home Needed
We can’t help but to try to squeeze this little guy in our program. Maverick’s owner’s sudden and numerous family emergencies have left her caring for several older relatives on an almost full-time basis. She is unable to bring Maverick with her as he can be an energetic bull in a china shop. Maverick is a sweet, cuddly and playful 7mo guy who hasn’t been around with children nor dogs very much but he’s been polite to them when he sees them on walks. He tried to play with cranky Chihuahuas and didn’t mind when they tried to bite his legs off. The resident grumpy senior cat swats at him and he just takes off. This cutie is crate and leash trained (might pull in the beginning due to excitement) and will need a refresher on house training. I’m hoping for a foster/foster-to-adopt home for this goofy young lad. More current pictures are on their way.

Pepper is Larry’s mother. She is 3 years old and about 45lbs. She is good with dogs outside of her home and has random resource guarding with the resident dogs. She is great with children, the family cat, chickens and livestock. Pepper needs a new home as one her owners suffered an injury to her hands and is unable to provide some much needed exercise and activities to Pepper. Like Larry, she is a world-class cuddler and loves baths. Pepper is crate, leash and house trained.

Luna will require an experienced and very confident leader for a fosterer/adopter as we are working to unwind some very aversive training methods employed at her former home (these were recommended by a trainer). We are also working on her extreme mouthiness when she gets excited (she nipped a potential adopter in the ear during play which required three stitches). She’s a 30lb, 3yo Bull Terrier Luna is good with dogs on a short-term basis but unknown with cats. A quiet adult only home would be ideal as the 11yo son in her former family was playing and making very high pitched sounds when Luna ran and nipped the friend in the thigh. She is leash, crate and house trained. Since she be overstimulated while playing with other dogs, she will need to be the only pet in her new home.

Kopi is entering our program as his owner had to unexpectedly relocate due to work and could not take Zena and Kopi with her. This sensitive 1yo guy is very playful, and can be initially shy/nervous around strangers until he gets to know them. Per the owner surrender form, he is good with children, cats and other dogs. Both have been wonderful in the shelter playgroups. Kopi is crate trained but will likely need a refresher in house and leash manners. Kopi may guard his food and toys; the shelter staff has been able to take away his food bowl and toys without any issues but he could be subdued in a shelter environment.

Isn’t this the cutest picture? Alice is available and in the BC area. She does have a meet-n-greet scheduled for the Easter weekend. Alice is about 5 years old and 25-30lbs. She is dog-selective so her ideal home is one where she’ll be the only pet and where there are older children in the family. Alice is not a fan of the kitties. If you have any questions about Alice, please contact Suz at email@example.com or 415-672-7391.
Sancho is a high energy 19 month guy who needs more activities than working parents with a toddler can give him. He is very social with dogs of all sizes but tend to annoy them with his exuberance to play. He does challenge the toddler so he’ll need a home with no or older children. Sancho likes to chase the cat that hangs around his front yard but we’re not sure what will happen if he ever caught up to it. This 65lb guy is crate, leash and obedience trained. If you’re looking for a happy, fun and active guy, Sancho is the one for you. If your information is not yet on file, please complete our online application: http\://www.bullterrierrescue.org/?page_id=572.

Poor Zuko just can’t catch a break. His awesome foster dad had to leave for California immediately after a family emergency. His stay in California will be extended and he cannot bring Zuko with him as he’ll be caring for his father and have extended work hours in the family business. We have him back with his former interim fosterer but she can only hold for a week due to work constraints. Zuko will need an experienced and confident fosterer who will maintain the much needed structure, leadership and boundaries that he’s been thriving on the past few weeks. He is dominant and will resource guard his favored person so a strong, confident but loving leader who won’t be hesitant about giving him much needed structure is a must. He is good with other dogs but on a limited basis as he can become overstimulated during play. Zuko is 1.5 years old and about 52lbs. Our paws are crossed for this challenging little fellow.
