    LUCY IN ALLEN, TEXAS *** If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at or submit an adoption application at *** Lucy is another one of the Griffs who came from the September 2014 puppy mill raid in the San Antonio area. She and 11 other Griffs were rescued along with 100 other dogs. Kept in horrid conditions, she had lived her entire life (3 years) in a wire cage. Shortly after Lucy arrived, we discovered she was pregnant. Now that she has finished her motherly duties and her puppies are in their new homes, it's time for her to have a family of her very own! Lucy ... (Read More)is a typical Griff; she will follow her foster mother everywhere and will climb over the baby gate to get to her. She is affectionate and has a sweet disposition. Like the others from the San Antonio puppy mill, Lucy proceeds with caution; but unlike the others, she has not been uneasy around men. Lucy is pretty laid back. She enjoys being near you and being petted. At this time she will sit for short periods on your lap - as long as she doesn't feel confined. She is doing great with potty training. Her foster mom takes her out on a regular schedule to avoid accidents. This smart girl sleeps through the night, but she will wake you if she needs to go potty. She is crate-trained, and she sleeps in a doggy bed at night, but we know she would love to snooze in the big bed if you want her to. She loves to play with toys, and she played with her pups. We think she would enjoy playing with other dogs, but her foster siblings don't care to play. After her years of close confinement, getting out and moving around has been a real blessing for this precious girl! She enjoys walking on leash. Lucy has not been around children, but we think she would be fine with respectful children over 10 years of age. Because she has not been around them, we would not feel comfortable placing her in a home with younger children. Do you have room in your heart and home for this little girl? The love and attention you give her will definitely be rewarded. Lucy is spayed, current on vaccines, and is heartworm negative and on preventative. She is three years old and weighs approximately 14 lb. Lucy is being fostered in Allen, 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 FOR ANTONIO IN HOUSTON, TEXAS *** If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at or cut/paste this link to your browser to fill out our adoption application *** 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 ... (Read More)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.

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-05-00048ROCKY: San Antonio. (male)

Brussels Griffon    Age: Young Adult

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

    *** If you are interested in adoption please fill out our adoption application at If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at *** Rocky came to NBGR when he was rescued from a big puppy mill operation in San Antonio, Texas. Rocky is an adorable little guy, weighing roughly 11 pounds. Having lived his entire life in a wire cage, Rocky knew practically nothing when he first came into rescue. Just to give you an idea of the neglect these puppy mill dogs suffer, when we first got Rocky, we were letting him run around inside a fenced in yard, his first time running ... (Read More)free. This yard had an in-ground swimming pool in it. Poor Rocky had probably never been allowed to walk on the ground before and had no idea of different textures, heights or anything. He walked right off the edge of the pool, right into the water%BD'%BD| He had never experienced water like that before and had no idea that you can't walk on it. He would walk into glass doors not knowing you couldn't walk through glass, he would tumble down steps because he had no idea about height or depth. Thank goodness he is a fast learner and no longer walks into glass doors, tumbles down steps or walks right off the edge of swimming pools. It was like his little brain had to be re-wired to learn how to navigate this huge new world! Rocky is definitely a Velcro dog, having attached himself to his foster mom's hip since day one. He is learning that other people are okay, but he is shy and will bark when they first come around. He does warm up eventually. He had many accidents when he first came into foster care. Puppy mill dogs that are kept the way Rocky was kept must urinate and defecate in the same area where they sleep and eat, so potty training can be difficult. Fortunately, Rocky is a fast learner and hasn't had any accidents since being put on a schedule of going outside every 3 or 4 hours for a potty break. Rocky goes into a crate with no problem, and his foster mom crates him at night and when they are away from the house. Rocky gets along with all his furry brothers and sisters, and he has several to hang out with, large and small. He hasn't learned to play with them yet, but the other day he did display some play posturing with one of his fur brothers in the house, so he is on the right track! We just know that Rocky will be such a great pet as someone who is very patient and loving helps him to build self-esteem and see all that life has to offer him! He hasn't been around small children so with his shyness and fear of sudden or loud noises, we feel that homes with older children or no children would suit him best. Rocky needs a home with a secure, fenced-in yard. When not in a secured area he must, like all rescues, wear his harness and leash. He is a very loving dog and is learning everyday what it is like to be in a loving family and to have regular meals and clean water. He is finally enjoying life! Do you have the patience and time to give Rocky the love and attention he needs? He will reward you with the most bonded and loyal companion you could ask for! Rocky is neutered, current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, heartworm negative and on preventative. 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.

    Daisy is looking for a new home after her mom had to give her up due to failing health. Daisy is a quiet and affectionate girl. She sleeps with me at night.

Daisy would prefer not to be left alone for long stretches during the day. She is a people puppy and loves physical contact. A household with people at home much of the day is her dream home.
