**** If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at email@example.com or fill out an adoption application at www.brusselsgriffonrescue.org where you can also see 2 cute videos of Baby! **** Baby came to NBGR along with several Griffs when there was a puppy mill raid in the San Antonio area. She and the others were rescued along with 100 other dogs. Kept in horrid conditions, she lived her life (3 years) in a wire cage. Today Baby is living with a foster family and doing really well! She is 3 years old and weighs 13 pounds. Baby is a typical Griff, she will either follow her foster mother everywhere or if she's in the same room, she follows her every move with her eyes. She is affectionate, has a sweet disposition but is a bit uneasy around men (her puppy mill owner was a man) so we can understand that with her previous life. We are sure that in time she will learn that men can be just as loving as women. Baby is pretty laid back and enjoys being near you but she's not too keen on being held. We feel in time she will learn the joys of curling up on her humans lap. As far as potty training, Baby is doing great. She is taken out regularly and on schedule to avoid accidents. This is quite a feat for her considering her previous house was a wire cage and her bed, bathroom and dining room were in the same place. Baby sleeps quietly in her crate all night but our bet is she would love to snooze in the big bed. She loves to play and enjoys tempting her foster siblings to join in by zooming around the backyard! She enjoys laying in the warm sun and rolling in the grass, (something she never got to feel or do until she was rescued). Baby is fine with kids older than 10 years old, but seems very nervous around children younger than that, so a home with older children is preferred. Also, Baby enjoys walking on her leash now! Getting out and moving around has been a real blessing for this precious girl. Do you have room in your heart and home for this little girl that deserves the best of everything? She spent the first 3 years of life in a wire cage and we want to make sure that no one ever puts Baby in the corner, so to speak, again. Baby is spayed, current on vaccines, heart worm negative and on prevention. Baby is being fostered in Georgetown, Texas. 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.

**** ADOPTION PENDING ***** MINUTE IN DALLAS, TEXAS **** If you are interested in adoption contact Connie Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an adoption application on our website at www.brusselsgriffonrescue.org **** This Texas cutie pie is Minute. She's approximately 8 months old and weighs 6 lbs. Minute is a high energy, care free little girl who loves to play with other dogs and adores human attention. Before Minute came to NBGR she must have either spent all her time in a crate or she may have been kept outside in a kennel. Sadly, either way she was never taught the appropriate place to potty. Minute needs a family with a TON of patience and someone who either stays home, works from home, is retired or can take Minute to work with them so she can learn potty manners. Her foster mom has been working with her and she is showing signs of improvement but she has a ways to go and needs someone who will remain diligent to help her. Minute is a tiny girl and will probably remain around 8 lbs. If you have the patients to help this little girl and you are willing to accept that she may never be completely house trained please complete the adoption application. Minute is completely vetted and is located in the Dallas, TX area. She cannot go to a family with small children. Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within MINUTE IN DALLAS, TEXAS *** 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.

*** If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at email@example.com or cut/paste this link to your browser to fill out our adoption application http://iwp.brusselsgriffonrescue.com:597/fmi/iwp/cgi?-db=FormBook&-loadframes *** Before Antonio was taken in by NBGR, Antonio's first six years of life were spent living in a crate in horrid conditions in a hoarder's puppy mill. He had no idea what it was like to have a soft bed to sleep in or would feel like to be treated with kindness by humans. He was stick-thin; his jaw was broken; he had worms; and he was absolutely terrified of everything. As bad as his physical condition was, we were more concerned about his mental condition. He looked broken. Could the damage that had been done to this little guy be reversed, or would he always stiffen when touched by a human? Would he always have that wide-eyed, fearful stare that made him appear feral? Our plan of first action was to give Antonio a little time to settle in his foster home, let him feel the comforts of a climate-controlled environment with a soft bed and plenty of food/water, offer him gentle interactions with his foster family, and allow him to become familiar with the everyday noises we take for granted. At the same time, we arranged to repair the damage to his jaw and get him the rest of the medical attention he needed to heal and grow strong. Once his jaw was repaired and Antonio could finally eat without being in pain, he started to put on some much-needed weight. It was a joy to see him enjoy food for the first time since who knows when. Antonio was afraid to walk through a doorway or be on a leash, but he watched the joys his foster-siblings displayed, and he slowly learned from them that the leash is a good thing and that danger doesn't lurk behind doorways. Antonio is now starting to take treats from his foster mom's hand, whereas in the beginning she had to put his treats on the floor then look away so he would take them. Having other dogs to watch has also helped Antonio learn the joys of your human coming home from work. Through his foster siblings' excitement and example, Antonio's tail now wags when his humans come through the door, and he is gaining courage to come closer for a little rub or a scratch on the rear. He loves going for walks with his buddies and is now coming over to have his harness put on for walks. He also has found the joy of curling up on the couch. He sleeps in his crate at night and stays in a larger x-pen during the day. He is working on his house-training but wears a belly band for safe measure. His foster family works, but he has a pet sitter who comes over once a day for a nice walk so everyone can get their business done. Antonio will benefit greatly from having a set schedule and more frequent potty breaks, so if you are retired or work at home, or if you work close enough to come home for potty breaks, that should help with the house-training process. Today Antonio's face is now softer, and his eyes sparkle. He is a healthy, loving guy who is ready for a forever home and a family of his very own. Loud noises and fast movements can startle Antonio, so we are looking for a home without children. He is more confident when he is with other dogs, so a home with at least one dog is preferable. We are looking for a special family with patience who will continue to help Antonio grow and enjoy his new world. Gentle obedience-training will go a long way in helping to build his confidence. If you and your family will dedicate yourself to this little guy, you will know the true meaning of rescue and reap the loving rewards. Antonio lived in hell, but that's behind him. His prospects are as bright as his eyes. Antonio is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, heartworm negative and on preventative. Antonio weighs 14 lbs. and is approximately 6 years old. Antonio is being fostered in Houston, Texas. 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.

ADOPTION PENDING **** If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are interested in adoption please fill out our adoption application at www.brusselsgriffonrescue.org **** Gizmo came to NBGR when his former owners could no longer care for him. Gizmo is approximately 4 years old and weighs about 10 pounds. This little cutie is super sweet once he warms up to you. It could take some time, so someone who is patient and has the time to work with him is who he needs most. Gizmo would do best in a home where someone is around most of the time, with no small children. Although this little precious heart is shy, he does love to give kisses and get his bottom scratched a lot once he warms up to you. He will even back up to you so you can take care of this wonderful need for him! He also loves his tummy to be scratched. He doesn't like his head scratched though and will shy away if you try to rub his head, so approaching him from underneath his head or from the side is best. Gizmo has tried to play with his foster brothers and sisters in his current foster home, but they aren't that interested so his foster mom takes him out in the backyard and they play games of chase. Gizmo does really well in a crate and he will sleep in one all night, but he does prefer the big bed if he is allowed to. Also he is doing really well with potty training and took to using a doggy door really fast. Regularly timed trips outdoors if you don't have a doggy door should be enough to keep him and your floors happy and clean. He might have a few accidents at first but once he gets on a schedule he should do just fine. Gizmo hasn't taken to walking on a leash that well, but his foster mom is working on that. He is still fearful of the outside commotion. He will walk a little, but tends to stay behind. He stops frequently and needs reassurance and a little tug to get him going again. With time and practice we are sure he will learn to enjoy his walks. He is very shy of new people, but he is improving over time. He might try to retreat under a chair or table. But with some reassurance and maybe a little tug on his lead or collar and he will come out. He is getting better about taking treats from people's hands. We think he will probably always be a bit shy and fearful around strangers although he has never shown any aggressive tendencies. He loves to run outside with the other dogs when there is something to bark at, or bark at the front window with them, so he is definitely an outgoing little boy. It is just going to take some time, but Gizmo is well worth the time and effort. Do you have the time to bring out the best in this precious little soul? Gizmo is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative and on prevention. Gizmo is being fostered in the San Antonio, Texas. **** 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. *** (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-01-00862BELLA: Adopt Pending (female)|
**** ADOPTION PENDING **** MEET BELLA IN FT. WORTH, TEXAS! If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at email@example.com. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our adoption application at www.brusselsgriffonrescue.org Sweet Bella is looking for a forever family to call her own. This five year old, 15 lb. joyful beauty is a Brussels Griffon/Maltese mix. Bella is a happy girl with a winning personality. She is described by her foster mom as sweet, funny, and playful. She gets along and loves to play with other dogs. She enjoys the company of and playing with respectful children. Bella knows the 'sit' and 'come' command, is leash trained, likes to go for walks, and will bring her toys to you. One of her favorite past times is chasing bubbles. As much as Bella loves having fun she also enjoys sitting in the window watching the world go by, hanging out on the sofa or sitting in your lap. Like the Griffy side of her ancestry Bella likes to stay close by and sometimes underfoot. And, like the Maltese side of her ancestry, her foster mom reports that she doesn't shed. Bella's one weakness and where she will need the most help from her new family is with house training. She can be good about going outside but she has to be watched to make sure she does her business and not just busy having fun. She will need to go outside on a regular basis - a strict schedule and patience are a must. Bella will also benefit, as all dogs do, from regular walks. Bella hasn't had many accidents at all since her foster family started crating her whenever they are gone and overnight. Bella does really good in her crate. She does not whine or bark according to her foster mom and she will head straight to her crate when she senses that she is supposed to. Bella is not crazy about riding in the car though, so her new family should keep this in mind and work with her so she understands riding in the car is a positive experience. It could be she has spent little time in the car and/or when she was in the car it ended with negative experiences - like the dreaded vet visit. Other than the needed help on potty training, Bella's foster mom says she's perfect in every way. Bella is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, micro-chipped, heart worm negative and on preventative. We all have our weak spots, do you have the patience to help Bella strengthen hers? Bella will make a wonderful companion for the right family - could that family be yours? Bella is located in Ft. Worth, TX. 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: 14-08-25-00617SADIE:Adoption Pending (female)|
*** ADOPTION PENDING *** If you are interested in adoption please fill out our adoption application at www.brusselsgriffonrescue.org. If you would like more information, or to adopt, or even foster her please contact Margie at firstname.lastname@example.org Sadie came into our rescue program when we found her on the ready to euthanize list at a shelter. She literally had 3 hours of life left when we found a volunteer to pull her. Sadie is a good girl with perhaps a bit more of a terrier temperament. She loves to grab at your pants legs and sometimes tries to hang one. She is quiet, housetrained and crate trained. She loves going on walks but her present foster mom is elderly and arthritic so going for a walk is out, but Sadie is lead trained. Sadie is approximately 3 years old, weighs 15 lbs., spayed and up to date on shots and she is on HW preventative. She is shy around strangers but when she knows you she is very friendly and loving. We would not recommend her with babies or children. She will do well as a single dog in a quiet home. She is always next to her person and will make someone a wonderful companion. 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.

|Animal ID: 3133OSCAR & BENTLEY (male)|
Oscar and Bentley are being fostered in AUSTIN, TEXAS. For more information EMAIL CONNIE at email@example.com or SUBMIT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION at www.brusselsgriffonrescue.org Meet Oscar the Griff & Bentley the Three Legged Beagle. For seven years Oscar, the Griff, and Bentley, the Beagle, have been best friends. Sadly, their family could no longer keep them and needed to find them new homes. NBGR stepped in to help by taking Oscar into their program and tried to find a Beagle rescue to help Bentley but had no luck. When that failed the next option was Bentley would be sent to a shelter. Not wanting that to happen one of our wonderful foster homes stepped up and opened their hearts and home to both boys. Now that Oscar and Bentley have been in their foster home we are happy none of the Beagle groups stepped up because these two boys are FFF's - Fur Friends Furever. Splitting them up would be like splitting up Batman & Robin, Lone Ranger & Tonto or Ben & Jerry. So, these two are a package deal. Oscar is seven years old and weighs 20 lbs. He is playful, gets along with other dogs and respectful children. He is housebroken, crate and leash trained. He likes to go for walks and cuddle with his human or wherever Bentley may be hanging out. Bentley is 10 years old and weighs 30 lbs. sadly, he was hit by a car a few years ago and lost his right front leg but that doesn't hold him back. He bounds up the stairs in his foster home without a problem. Bentley loves to hang out and play with Oscar. And enjoys rumbling with his foster brother Buster. He is house trained, leash trained and does well with children. Bentley has not shown signs of being an excessive barker. Oscar and Bentley would love to have a family who has a nice size backyard so they can run and play. They both love to go for leisurely strolls. Both boys are neutered, up-to-date on their vaccinations, micro chipped, heartworm negative and on preventative. Now all they need is a forever family who, like their foster family, will open their hearts and home so these two can continue to stay together until the very end. Is your family that family? Check out their cute video on our website. 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.

Baby Girl is a Brussels Griffon mix that was rescued from a high kill shelter. Baby Girl has a bit of an issue with trust and can be a little snippy until she is sure she is in good hands and free from danger. Once Baby Girl feels secure she is very playful, loyal and loving. Baby Girl is covered in a wiry hair and has an adorable underbite. She loves to sit on your lap and give kisses. Baby Girl would do best with a mature couple that does not have too many other pets as she loves attention. Baby Girl has the cutest little curl on the very top of her head. She is a cutey and so very affectionate when she knows she is safe. She is a small little dog with a big attitude. (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.
