found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, purebred, and up to date with shots.
Precious little Phoebe loves people and just wants to be near you at all times. She seems to prefer women, but likes gentle soft spoken men too. In fact, she loves to meet new people and never barks at them! She is crate trained, leash trained and house trained to go outside (weather permitting) and using a puppy pad in an emergency. She does best with scheduled potty breaks every few hours. She is very smart and wants to please you!
Phoebe lived her whole life in a breeding facility and is so ready for a real home with people that adore her. Once she identifies the person she wants, she doesn’t want to share with another small dog. She would do best as the only dog so she can get ALL the attention she believes she deserves! Her foster home has a cat and she coexists peacefully with him.
Phoebe is looking for an adopter who works from home, can take her to work or is retired. She prefers to sleep in her crate at night and during the day she will be in your lap the second you sit down. If you have to leave her alone for a couple of hours, her crate should be large enough for her to stand up and turn around. Because she is so small and fragile, she will not be placed in a home with children or with large dogs.
We were told that Phoebe was born in 2003, but the veterinarian says she is much younger and she weighs barely 8 lbs. Because Brussels Griffons are a long lived breed, she is not yet considered a senior. It is not uncommon that a well cared for Griff lives 20 years. She is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, heart worm negative and taking preventative. She 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 a bit of an escape artist and is very fast! 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 in northwest Missouri, about an hour from Kansas City 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 or fly in and Phoebe must fly home inside the cabin with the approved adopter. 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. Phoebe is small enough to be carried away by a hawk, owl, coyote or other predator so should never be outside alone.
