Tracker would love a securely fenced yard to run and play with another small dog and at least one long walk every day. He will do best in a quiet, loving home with a human that works from home or is retired and has no children. He had a very rough start in life and is working hard on his house training skills. He might mark if he is anxious, so should wear a belly band when there is a lot of activity in his home. He has quickly learned to walk on leash and must always be securely harnessed on walks and seat belted in a vehicle. Being locked in a crate is very upsetting for Tracker. He is afraid of thunderstorms, loud noises, quick movements and strangers. He likes to be part of whatever you are doing, but he retreats under the bed when things make him uncomfortable.
Tracker was born in 2009 and weighs around 15 lbs. He is playful, active, healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, micro chipped, heart worm negative and taking preventative. He is being fostered near Durango Colorado and if someone outside the driving area is approved for adoption, they may fly in and Tracker must fly home inside the cabin with the approved adopter. We never place our dogs in homes with invisible (electric) fencing and we never ship our dogs in cargo or transport them to adoptive homes. Travel to the foster home is the adopter’s responsibility. Doggy doors are OK as long as they are secured at night and when you are gone. Tracker is small enough to be carried away by a coyote or other predator so should never be outside alone. Being a short nosed breed, Brussels Griffons are very sensitive to extreme heat and cold, so care must be taken when you are outside with Tracker on very hot and very cold days.
