I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Allie Anne is a sweet, beautiful, energetic, rare black and tan smooth coat Brussels Griffon. She is very loving toward women and is very Velcro, following you everywhere. She is leash trained, house trained to puppy pads and crate trained, but only for short periods of time. She will do her duty outside in a securely fenced yard too, but only if you are right beside her. She also knows sit, come and stay when she isn’t too excited about something else. Her world revolves around the women she loves.

Allie is very athletic, full of life and food motivated. She can jump up higher than a kitchen countertop, so if food is sitting near the edge, she will be able to get it! She gets along with most dogs as long as they treat her like the queen she truly believes she is. Allie wants to be the boss so she would do best as an only dog with an experienced, dog savvy owner. She is absolutely terrified of men, even after she knows them, so would be happiest in a quiet female only home with no children. She has not been tested with cats.

Allie Anne would do best if her woman works from home. She worries when left alone. Because of her high energy level, she needs several walks everyday and lots of play time in between. She loves playing fetch and would enjoy playing games with you in a securely fenced yard. She much prefers to sleep in bed with you at night, but can be crated as long as she can see you. If you have to leave her alone for a couple of hours, her crate should be large enough for her to stand up and move around. She sometimes barks when left alone and will bark at noises, strangers and men. She will do her best to follow you out the door, so vigilance is necessary.

Allie was born January 29, 2011, so she is still quite young in Griffy years and she weighs about 11 lbs. She is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, micro chipped, heart worm negative and taking preventative. Allie must always be securely harnessed and leashed when outside a securely fenced area and crated or seat belted in the back seat when in a vehicle. She is being fed the highest quality, grain free kibble and is thriving. She loves healthy, grain free treats too!

She is currently being fostered near Chicago IL and we prefer to place her within a few hours driving distance. If someone outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must drive the distance to meet her. Our dogs may never be shipped in cargo and we do not transport them to adoptive homes. They are never placed in homes with invisible (electric) fencing. Doggy doors are OK as long as they are secured at night and when you are gone. Allie Anne is small enough to be carried away by a coyote or other predator so should never be outside alone.

If you think your lifestyle meets her needs, you may submit an adoption application for Allie Anne at Inquiries may be emailed to

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ALLIE ANNE - ADOPTION PENDING, a Lemont Brussels Griffon dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Brussels Griffon for sale in Lemont, or seeking a Brussels Griffon dog from a breeder in Lemont.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lemont already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lemont breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Brussels Griffon breeders who help with Brussels Griffon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lemont paves the way for another one to be saved.
