ADULT ONLY HOME (due to my size!)

Hello my name is Giovanni but people also like to call me Gio or Vanni for short!


My life was really sucking big time, you see some people decided that they didn't want me any more during this horrible PANDEMIC thingy and dumped me at a high kill pound URRGGHHH!!!

And  to make matters even worse I was so freaking scared that when they tried to take me out of my jail cell at the pound I pooped myself, so they made me Rescue Only and I couldn't even be adopted!

A  Rescue was my only HOPE and I tell you, hope is a thing I had lost all of!


And Then The Angels Sang!


This Rescue right here! They saw my story on Facebook and Instagram and they put a plan into action fast and got me out of that most scary and awful place!


A nice trainer stepped up to foster so I am being a real good boy and learning that not all humans are mean!

I was super emaciated when I got dumped so I'm getting all kinds of good food and am gaining weight and I now get to sleep inside and on a soft bed and am getting lots of LOVE along with my training.


I am a nice big bully breed boy at 70 pounds, one year old, have the most beautiful markings and am very gentle and sweet once I know a human isn't gonna hurt me.


I am great with other dogs but because of my size I need an adult only home. 


I LOVE LOVE belly rubs and I will give you my paw to hold.


I'm looking for someone who has previous bully breed experience who will be patient with me.


Head on over to if you wanna take my paw and let me live with you OK?


I am in the Southern CA area-sorry but my rescue does NOT adopt out of state
