Nesta, or Ness/Nessie for short, is an approximately 8-year-old pure bred American Bully(i did the DNA test). She has been living with a single male owner for most her life and seems to do well in that environment, but has stayed with multple dogs before and multiple humans. She does not like cats at all and is a bit apprehensive around children. She is house trained and listens to most commands. She is leash trained but may pull a bit on the start of walks because of excitement. She does vocalize and pull at dogs at first but usually calms down after the first initial interaction. She just needs to be socialized more as I am so busy that I havent time to do so. She may also start growling and nipping at people other than her direct owner, not sure where this comes from and its something ive had to deal with since ive gotten her at 2 years old. Ive tried training but itll take someone who is more consistent with her and not gone all the time like I am.
She has no medications that she takes regularly but does have reoccurring yeast infections on her paws and in her ears that stem from her allergy to red meat, or so the vet believes. She does have flare ups every once in a whiule but has topical medicine and ear drops to help curb the flare up.
Shes a very sweet dog who has her minor issues that any experienced dog owner should be able to deal with.

To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center (Hours & Location). This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
