Brussels Griffon    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    **** ADOPTION PENDING **** If you have a little extra room, it would be perfect if Sable and her friend Gizmo could be placed together. We believe they would feel more secure moving to a new environment as a team. See Gizmo's bio for more information on this sweet boy. Sable is a sweet 5 yr. old, 12 lb. girl who was surrendered to NBGR, along with her friend Gizmo, because of her owner's failing health. Sable is a very happy girl and adores getting all the attention you can dish out. In her previous home Sable was crated for very long hours, with just enough room for her bed, food, water, and a pee pad. Now that she is no longer ... (Read More)confined for so long she is adjusting to life outside the crate. She needs to be on a strict potty schedule and monitored to make sure she goes outside. If not watched when she goes out, she can get busy and forget the all-important mission. Sable was never taken for walks, and although she is not a pro yet, she does surprisingly well on her leash. With practice, she will do great. She is a pro at cuddling! Sable has a tendency to want all the attention, so she needs a home with a family who will make sure she understands it's not all about her and there's plenty of love to go around to all the pets. Sable gets along well with other dogs. When she was visiting the vet, she didn't so much as bark at the others, but her tail did wag a lot. She does well with her tiny foster sister but needs to be reminded not to bump her aside to try to get all the attention. Sable eagerly greets people she meets, but she has not been around children, so we will need to place her in a home without young children. Now that she isn't stuck in a crate all the time, Sable is not a big fan of going back in. If you can accommodate her preference, we feel she would do well being confined to a laundry room with a baby gate while her new family is away. Until she has proved herself trustworthy, we do not recommend her being free to roam the house while you are away. Sable loves to eat as much as she loves attention. Her foster family is working on portion control and scheduled meal times so we can help her shed a few pounds off her small frame. If she is placed in a home with other dogs, she will need to be watched closely so that she doesn't try to help others with their food. This little girl is happy, as sweet as they come, and will be a wonderful addition to the right family. With a little practice, patience, and time to settle into her new home, she will no doubt find her place in the middle of your heart. If you want to help Sable be the very best she can be, please let us know by completing an adoption application. If you have already adopted from NBGR, just email Connie Lawrence to let her know. Sable is completely vetted, micro-chipped, and ready to melt your heart. Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-01-00062GIZMO-Adoption Pending (male)

Brussels Griffon    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    **** ADOPTION PENDING **** If you have a little extra room, it would be perfect if Gizmo and his friend Sable could be placed together. We believe they would feel more secure moving to a new environment as a team. See Sable's bio for more information on this sweet girl. Gizmo is a sweet 5 yr. old, 14 lb. boy who was surrendered to NBGR, along with his friend Sable, because of his owner's failing health. Gizmo is a very happy boy who adores getting all the attention you can dish out. He was taken in by his previous owner when he was found in the country in horrible shape. She opened her home and cared for Gizmo until she herself ... (Read More)developed health issues and had to surrender him to NBGR. Even though we don't know his history, we know that Gizmo is now a very happy and sweet boy. He eagerly greets people and does well with Sable and his tiny foster sister. When he was taken for his vet appointment, Gizmo did not bark or react negatively to the other dogs. In his previous home, he was crated for extremely long hours. According to his previous owner, Gizmo had never had an accident in the house, but when he went to his foster home, he was a little too anxious to let everyone know he had arrived. We think a big contributor to Gizmo's house-training lapse was nervousness because of the change to another new environment. To protect his surroundings, we put a belly band on Gizmo. Now that he has settled down, he is doing much better, but he still needs to be under a watchful eye. Gizmo needs to lose a few pounds to reach the ideal weight for his frame. He walks well on a leash and loves to go for walks. His foster parents are working with him to not have accidents in the house, and they are teaching him to sit on command. They are also working to break his habit of wanting to jump up on your legs. He just gets so excited he has trouble restraining himself - but he is smart, and he will learn with consistency. Gizmo adores being loved on and cuddled. He loves to play tug-o-war and play with toys. He also liked to rumble with another dog in his previous home. So an equally playful furry friend in his new home would be a bonus for this boy. Gizmo is enjoying the freedom of space outside a crate in his foster home. He is lightning fast and loves to bolt out open doors, so his new family will have to be extra vigilant to make sure this little guy does not escape and to make sure he is always secured within a fenced yard. He will need a patient family who will continue the work of his foster family so he can be his very best. Gizmo weighs 14 lb., is completely vetted, micro-chipped, and ready to melt your heart. If you are interested in making this little boy, or him and Sable, a part of your family, please let us know by completing an adoption application. Already adopted from NBGR in the past? Just let Connie know your arms are open! Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-05-00347KADDIE - Pending (female)

Brussels Griffon    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *** ADOPTION PENDING **** Kaddie just turned 6 yrs. old and weighs about 9 lbs. She gets along great with other dogs, and was went to doggie daycare when she was with her previous owner. While she does well with other dogs, she isn't timid and doesn't mind letting the others know if she doesn't like something. Her new family will need to help her keep her attitude in check so she doesn't get too full of herself and become bossy about her space. Kaddie is house trained, but you have to make sure you keep her on a schedule, and you stand outside with her to make sure she does her business. When her mission is accomplished, Kaddie LOVES ... (Read More)to hear what a big girl she is for going potty outside. If she has an accident inside, it is obvious because she will run and hide in the far back corner of the nearest crate. When her foster parents are away, Kaddie has done well in her crate and has had no accidents. If she is kept in a larger enclosure, like an x-pen with a potty pad, she will use the pad. At night she sleeps quietly in her crate, but we are sure she would enjoy sharing the big bed with her human. Kaddie's story - From what we can gather, Kaddie's original owners loved her until they had a baby. When Kaddie wasn't getting the attention she was used to, she started having accidents in the house. The solution for her owners was to keep her in the garage, year-round, where she was especially harmed by the heat of Texas summers, not to mention the hard concrete floors. Poor Kaddie's paws, coat, and skin started showing the effects of the exposure. Her coat started falling out; her skin became inflamed; and her paws were bald and painful. She was miserable. Instead of the family taking care of her, they opted to take her to the vet to have her euthanized. Thankfully, a guardian 'Angel' saw Kaddie at the vet that day and said she would be happy to take her. She took Kaddie home and started nursing her back to health. Over the next ten months, Kaddie's bald spots started filling in, and the coat around her paws did too. The pain in her paws subsided with tender care. Ten months later Kaddie's Angel had to relocate, and she could not take Kaddie with her. She wanted to find Kaddie a wonderful owner who would continue to love and care for her as she had. She placed an ad in Craig's List, not knowing the dangers of doing so. She started receiving calls from people wanting Kaddie, but she also received calls and e-mails from concerned individuals warning her that Kaddie's well-being, and even her life, could be at risk. That was the last thing Kaddie's Angel would ever want. She had never heard the horrid stories of what can happen to dogs given away or sold on Craig's List. We won't go into details. Several of those concerned contacted NBGR, and we called immediately. The Angel was overjoyed to know that Kaddie could come into a safe program until a loving home could be found. When we met Kaddie, she greeted us with a wagging tail and tons of sloppy kisses. We were amazed at how animated she was and how well she was walking around. There are limitations to the things she can do, but this spunky girl has so much life and has no clue that she's not 'normal'. Fast forward - Since Kaddie has been with her foster family, this is what we have learned about this dainty, sweet girl who loves everyone she meets. About Kaddie's paws - We consulted a vet and after considering all options, we decided not to do any corrective surgery on our girl. She gets around remarkably well as she is and it's what she knows. Trying to alter what's working for her has the potential for making matters worse. So she will remain perfectly imperfect. Kaddie does best on soft surfaces like carpet, area rugs, or padded runners. She also walks on hard surfaces, but it doesn't feel as good or soft, and she will scurry to find a soft place. If you have tile or hardwood floors, laying down runners would be a great comfort to Kaddie. %BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD Kaddie is not able to take walks, but she is excited to accompany you in a cool dog carrier, a wagon, or a stroller. %BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD She loves lounging on dog beds and has no problem taking the big middle out of the sofa. She needs a little step stool to get up and down from the sofa by herself. Kaddie does well on stairs, but again, softer is better. Kaddie's coat/skin - We continue to use a special shampoo to help Kaddie's skin completely heal. While she needed baths more often in the beginning, she now only needs one every 7-10 days, depending on how her coat feels. It is important to keep her on a high-quality, grain-free diet and nutritional supplements for skin and (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-27-00539BONNIE - Special Needs (female)

Brussels Griffon    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bonnie is one precious little girl. If you are comfortable giving her a shot twice a day for Diabetes, and don't try to take anything away from her when she has it in her mouth, you will love having her in your life. She is 10 yrs. young, 12 lbs, fully vetted and ready to meet her new family. Bonnie was surrendered to NBGR by her previous owners, who had her since she was a puppy, when they could not handle her daily medical requirements. She had recently been diagnosed with diabetes, and that means she must have two insulin injections a day. Her previous owners were very nervous about giving injections, and the few times they tried, they ... (Read More)bent the needle. Bonnie reacted aggressively. Bonnie is a sweet little girl, but she has a couple of quirks that will require her new family to be cautious. Bonnie is aggressive when it comes to her food bowl. If you put your hands near her bowl when she is eating, she will bite. She does not react if you walk around her while she eats or stand over her while she is eating. She only reacts if she fears you will take her food. On the other hand, Bonnie does not react at all to other dogs being near her food or bowl. She is also very polite when treats are being passed out and will sit patiently until it's her turn. When we first brought Bonnie into her foster home, she reacted to being startled awake by biting. That has not occurred since she has relaxed with us. Now that we've addressed the negatives, let us tell you all the wonderful things about Bonnie'| Bonnie walked into her foster home as if she had always lived here. She's house-trained and will pretty much go outside to potty on command. She is crate-trained. She LOVES meeting people, and she gets along great with other dogs. When she first moved in, she was not inclined to sit on the sofa next to us, but preferred to lay in a bed on the floor or underneath a table or chair near us. Now she definitely wants to be on the sofa with us. She generally follows us from room to room, finding a comfortable spot nearby. Bonnie is leash-trained and enjoys walks (though sometimes she prefers to be carried like a princess). She is very curious about the people she sees along the way, but she tends to ignore other dogs. Even if her foster-sibs are all barking, Bonnie remains calm. Bonnie sleeps through the night, pretty much without moving, at our feet on our bed. Bonnie has accompanied her foster mom on a few home visits and was delightful. She captures and melts the hearts of everyone she meets. Bonnie travels beautifully in her crate and really enjoys car rides. Bonnie needs to live in a dog-savvy home. Bonnie will need a family who is willing to administer her insulin and continue monitoring her health with additional tests from time to time. Her diabetes requires her to eat, then receive her injection, on a regular schedule (every 10-12 hours). She also needs drops in her eyes twice a day. This is done most simply right after she gets her insulin. Due to her aggressive tendencies, Bonnie will not be allowed to go to a home with children or a home where children visit often. She has not shown any aggression toward children, but we cannot take a chance of a child getting near her food bowl or picking up a toy Bonnie feels is hers. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Brussels Griffon in Texas
    Brussels Griffon Dogs can make good pets in Texas if they match your IifestyIe. The Brussels Griffon is a pouty toy dog that resembles a miniature Boxer. The Griffon is similar in temperament to a terrier. Brussels Griffons are peppy and can be somewhat high strung but are very cheerful and companionable. Griffons are demanding, need to be the center of attention, and can be quite spoiled. Griffons do fine with older children. A Brussels Griffon can do fine living in an apartment with daily walks and exercise.
