O'Reilly is a sweet loving male Heart Stealer! He is looking for a new home due to his owner's illness. O'Reilly, a Brussels Griffon, is easy as Sunday morning, as Griffs go. He loves every man, woman, and beast he has met, dogs and cats alike. O'Reilly has only known love in his life and he is ready to find his forever home and give some love right back! So be prepared to share your lap and your bed - Then, prepare to be smitten!
At first, O'Reilly was worried about losing his home and his new surroundings. Once he settled into his foster home, his house training has been reliable and his generous loving heart has been constant. Given a week or so to get used to his new home and routine, he will be the best friend you ever had and beg for your attention.
O'Reilly is looking for that special person who will take care of his special needs. He has been diagnosed with a grade 3 heart murmur that will eventually lead into congestive heart failure. His recent blood tests are revealing a lack of healthy kidney function. He is on a balance of medication that will help his heart, with those that won't exacerbate his kidney problem. He will need ongoing routine blood tests and occasional fluids. Monthly visits to the vet should be expected and planned for. For these reasons, he will only be considered for adopters who live within close driving distance to his foster home in Surprise, AZ.
O'Reilly is only 6 years old and weighs 11 pounds. Due to his small size, we would like to find a home with only small pet companions. O'Reilly loves everyone and children over the age of 12 years old are preferred. A fenced yard will be given preference, and O'Reilly will use a doggy door. He is also crate trained. O'Reilly's focus will be spending time with his new person/s. As with most Griffons, he craves attention and will want to be with you most of time. He will be happiest with someone who works from home, can take him to work with them, or is retired.
O'Reilly has been updated on vaccinations and given a dental. He is neutered and microchipped. A high quality grain free measured diet & treats will keep O'Reilly to proper weight, active, and healthy.
O'Reilly is being fostered near Surprise, AZ. and we prefer to place him within driving distance. Our rescued dogs may never be shipped in cargo and we do not transport them to adoptive homes. If approved to a home outside of the immediate area where he is fostered, he must be picked up by car or flown in the cabin of the plane with you. ABGRA does not re-home rescued Griffs or Affens into homes with young children or homes with invisible (electric fencing). Adopters over the age of 25 years old and homes with securely fenced yards are given preference. Doggy doors to a securely fenced area are OK as long as they are locked at night and when you are gone.
