PINCH – adopted

Macedon Ranges, VIC
Pocket American Bully • 5 months • Female

This adorabull, adoptabull bully bebe is everything! 

Pinch is a well-balanced, sweet, sometimes coy pocket bully who gives those whole body cuddles…. you know the ones! She is a little shy on first meet but don’t let her initial hesitation fool you, she is a social gal who loves soaking up all the love in the room.

This girl is BFF material, she is so ready to be somebodies ride or die and spend her days hanging out, shooting the breeze alongside her human. Pinch is a friend to all doggo’s big and small, and she would love a fam with another awesome dog who loves snugs, hugs and the occasional game of bitey face as much as she does. 

Why did Pinch end up in the care of LoP? Her unilateral cleft lip! Apart from her perfectly imperfect cleft lip, Pinch is in tip top shape and doesn’t really require any extra care, she can eat and drink like your average doggo but has an extra ‘pinch’ of cuteness (we may be bias). She settles well in her crate at night and her toilet training is progressing well. 

We suspect Pinch will grow to be very similar to HQ’s very own Pamplemousse, a short but SUPER BUFF little bully, who we are guessing will grow to be around 15-20kgs. 

For those familiar with American Bullies, you will know that they can look a little extra and even though know we know the bigger the head, the bigger the heart, their Schwarzenegger-esque bodies can be intimidating to the unfamiliar eye. 

So, this being said, with great power comes great responsibility and it’s super important Pinch’s forever family do their absolute best to ensure she’s a good advocate for not only bully breeds but even more so RESCUED bully breeds. 

So, are you ready to join the itty bitty pitty committee?

BEFORE you read Pinch’s adoption criteria it is extremely important that potential adopters give great thought and communicate in their adoption application as to what their home set up and routine plan is for the first few weeks/months if they are the successful adopter of this most precious pupper. Pinch cannot be settled in over just a weekend and then left on a Monday home alone while you return to work… There needs to be a plan outlined so that her foster family can feel assured she is going to be set up for success in her new home.


Deal breakers:

– Pinch’s new family must be committed to ongoing training to ensure she grows to be the best doggo she can be. Growing up in rural Victoria means the hustle and bustle of city life will be something Pinch needs to slowly get used too.

– Daily adventures are a must for this little lady, she’s an athletic lass and would benefit from some extra circular activities like agility or GRC when she’s a little older. #futuresportsstar

– A specific balanced, healthy raw diet is very important for Pinch to ensure her digestive health.

– Pinch must be truly part of the family and that means access inside as she pleases #couchplease (no being locked out in the backyard)

– The lucky adoptive family of Pinch will need to be ready to keep in regular touch with her foster mama at Life of Pikelet throughout the duration of his life.

Non deal breakers:

– Pinch is a pretty balanced pup but as she matures she will likely develop typical bully breed traits, whilst not an absolute, an adopter with previous bully experience is highly favourable but if you haven’t had a bully breed before, someone who can demonstrate that they have done their research is a must.


– Pinch has a unilateral cleft lip, this doesn’t really effect her day to day, Pinch can eat and drink like any regular doggo can do. All it really means is that a couple of times a week, you just give it a little check to make sure there’s is not food or dirt stuck, give it a wipe and ta dah! All done!

– Being lilac is colour, whilst clearly #stunning, in our experience does tend to come with sensitive skin issues. At the moment, Pinch is not an itchy lady but it’s important to consider in case it pops up in her future.



**We do our best to review and reply to all applications within 14 days, please be patient.

**Located in foster care in Victoria, Pinch is available for interstate adoption however this comes with the firm understanding that if an interstate candidate is successful, Pinch’s new family will need to come to HQ to complete adoption paperwork and travel home with her. Interstate candidates please see above in deal breakers/non-deal breakers.  Video footage of yard & home will also need to be provided along with the agreement to a possible home check by a local Life of Pikelet rescue volunteer.
