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


I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

If you’re looking for a sweet tender boy to be by your side then Tinzo is your man. He loves being around people and getting lots of attention. He likes all dogs but prefers playing with dogs his own size. He loves to cuddle on the couch or just follow you around to make sure you’re not feeling left out. He is good with older respectful children and is just an all around happy boy.

He is potty trained and he will sit by a door and bark to let you know he needs to go out. He loves being outside, going for walks and does great at the dog park with small dogs his size, running and playing with the other small dogs. Tinzo is looking for a family with a securely fenced yard, no young children or large dogs and where someone is home most of the time.

Tinzo was thoroughly checked out by a vet and he’s up to date on his vaccines. He does suffer from arthritis in his back left leg which gives him a “swag” (slight limp) to his walk, however this does not stop him one bit. He doesn’t know his own limits so 20 minute walks and 30 minutes at the dog part are best. Just make sure he gets lots of yard time as he LOVES being outside with you. He also LOVES to cuddle with you on the couch, bed or where ever you are but he cannot jump up or down on his own so he needs assistance. He is able to go up and down stairs but I would limit this as well.

Tinzo was surrendered by his owner and his birthday is June 13, 2008. He is being fostered near Portland Oregon. The Vet says he should weigh no more than 16 lbs, but he weighs 17 lbs right now. He is on a strict diet and loosing the excess weight will significantly improve his mobility and endurance.

We prefer to place Tinzo within driving distance of Portland OR. If someone outside the local area is approved for adoption, he must be able to travel comfortably to his new home. Our rescued dogs may never be shipped and we do not transport them to adoptive homes. ABGRA dogs 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. Tinzo is small enough to be carried away by a coyote, other predator or theft, so should never be left outside unattended.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

TINZO - ADOPTION PENDING, a Salem 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 Salem, or seeking a Brussels Griffon dog from a breeder in Salem.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Salem 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 Salem 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 Salem paves the way for another one to be saved.
