Rebel is a very handsome purebred Affenpinscher boy who is full of boundless energy and LOVE!  He absolutely loves to play, especially with his person.  He likes both women and gentle soft spoken men and is a bit timid with strangers.  Rebel gets along well with other small dogs he meets on walks and in the dog park.  However, he is possessive of his main person and does not like to share with other dogs in his home territory.  For this reason he should be an only dog.  He is leash trained and house trained to going outside.    He is crate trained and also does fine in an x-pen for a few hours at most.  He is VERY curious and there’s no telling what he will get into if left to his own devices.   He is very food motivated so must be told to sit for a treat.  He will overeat, so should be fed 2 or 3 small measured meals a day.  His water intake should be monitored after 7pm or he will wake you up to go outside every couple of hours all night long!  ;-)

Rebel is looking for an active adopter who will play with him, take him for long walks every day and keep him occupied the rest of the time.  He hopes that you work from home or can take him to work with you because he has never been left alone for very long periods of time. Rebel expects to sleep in bed, cuddled up with you at night.  He needs a securely fenced yard to run, play with you and burn off his excess energy.  He must always be securely harnessed and leashed outside a fenced area and secured in the back seat when riding in a car.  He will not be placed in a home with children under 12 years old.

Rebel’s birthday is January 6, 2013 and he weighs about 14 lbs.  He is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, heart worm negative and taking preventative.  He was diagnosed with a grade 4 luxating patella in his back left knee and had surgery to correct it.  He is being fostered near St Paul Minnesota and we prefer to place him within a few hours driving distance. If someone outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must still drive in to meet him. 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. Rebel is small enough to be carried away by a coyote or other predator so should never be outside alone.

About Our Rescue Group...

ABGRA (American Brussels Griffon Rescue Alliance) & AAR (American Affenpinscher Rescue) is a non-profit national rescue group founded to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Brussels Griffons and Affenpinschers. We strive to leave no Griff or Affen behind and rescue these breeds from commercial breeding facilities and city/county shelters when foster home space is available. We also accept owner surrendered Griffs and Affens. We are an all foster home based rescue that provides complete vetting for our dogs prior to adoption.

American Brussels Griffon Rescue Alliance Inc. (ABGRA) and American Affenpinscher Rescue (AAR) came into being to meet the needs of the Brussels Griffons and Affenpinschers who are abandoned, might be abandoned, or whose circumstances we can improve.
We are especially mindful of the Griffs and Affens that have spent their lives in commercial breeding facilities and who will have a chance at a better life through our efforts.We also rescue both breeds from animal shelters and accept owner surrendered Griffs and Affens.
ABGRA, & our subsidiary AAR, is a non-profit national rescue group.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All adoptions go through our website-
We do not have a kennel facility and place all of our Griffons and Affens by application. All of our rescued dogs are living in foster homes where public viewing is not possible.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption donations are from $200 - $350 and reflect the vetting costs incurred for each dog as well as some dogs whose costs far exceed the donation.
We interview all references provided and require a home visit before placements. An adoption contract is required. If the dog is returned within 30 days, a refund will be issued. ABGRA requires adopters be 25 years old, or older, and are looking for stable permanent adopters. In most cases, these breeds are not recommended for families with young children or for people who are not home for long periods of time. They are the perfect pet for someone who can take their dog to work with them, work from home, or are retired.
