Hello there my name is Macciato, but my friends call me Macci – you can too! I’m 9 yrs. old and I weigh 14 lbs. I’m a very happy guy, and according to my foster family I’m very loving, lovable AND smart. My story began when my previous family was moving and no longer had time for me. A few phone calls were made then I was taken to a wonderful foster home. I love it, there are other dogs for me to hang with and loving humans to care for me until NBGR can find my new family.

I’m happy to tell you I’m house trained, leash trained and crate trained. I get along great with other dogs, the cats in my previous home, and I adore humans. One of my favorite things is to cuddle, so please know if you feel the need to lounge on the sofa or snuggle in the big bed you will never be alone because I’ll be right there with you.

So, here I am needing a new family…a very special family who is willing to help me with a couple of things. I have diabetes which requires, checking my blood sugar levels and giving me insulin injections twice a day. I know my routine and am stoic. My blood sugar levels are stable but I will need periodic blood work to make sure they remain that way.

I’m not blind, but my eye sight is cloudy from cataracts, but please do not feel sorry for me, because it does not slow me down. I recognize people, animals and I can maneuver around the furniture inside the house and in the yard. I do have a problem with objects that you can see through like a chain link fences, wire crates etc. but I learn my way around.

It will take me a little while to adjust and familiarize myself with new surroundings, but with a little time I will do fine. I need a family who is willing to keep up with my routine and guide me through this new adventure. I might take a little more of your time, but I’ll reward you with lots and lots of love, and promise you will never watch television alone.

Macci is ready and waiting to meet his forever family. If you are willing to give this darling boy the forever family he deserves and see that his medical needs are met, please complete an adoption application so you don’t waste a minute of joy.

Macci is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm negative, on heart worm preventative, and micro chipped.

We never place dogs in homes reliant on electric or invisible fencing to contain pets. Fencing of this type may or may not keep a dog in the yard, nor does this type of fencing protect pets from predators, free roaming dogs, or people who may enter the yard. Should there be a power outage, the fence would be rendered useless. If a pet were to panic and run through the barrier and take an electrical jolt from the fence, that pet would not be inclined to return home, and could be lost forever.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

About National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. - Rocky Mountain Region

About Our Rescue Group...

National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 not-for-profit rescue organization. We maintain a nationwide network of volunteer foster homes for Brussels Griffons who have been abandoned, lost, abused or for other reasons must be re-homed.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not hold public adoption events, nor do we have a shelter facility where walk-in meet and greets are possible.

Each of our rescued Brussels Griffons are instead lovingly cared for in the private homes of our nationwide coast-to-coast network of unpaid and very dedicated volunteers who rescue Griffs in need.

Our adoptable Griffs live with our volunteer foster families for as long as it is necessary to find the perfect forever home for each and every one of our adoptable Griffs.

Many of our volunteers work full or part-time jobs, and have family obligations, along with caring for their own Griffs and the foster Griffs in their homes, so please be patient with us.

Our Adoption Process...

Please keep in mind that the adoption process is not always a speedy one, but we can assure you a Brussels Griffons is well worth the wait!

The first step in the inquiry and adoption process is to fill out our adoption application, which will assist us in becoming better acquainted with you, and achieving our first and foremost goal of matching our rescued Griffs with a forever home which best fits the needs of the Griff, and the life style of the adoptive family.

Our adoption application can be found at

(2) Click on the link on the left side of the page which says "Adoption and
Foster Applications".
(3) You will see two links: "Foster Application" and "Adoption Application".
(4) Click on "Adoption Application".
(5) You will then see a page titled Adoption Information, Policies and Adoption Disclaimer". Please take the time to read this information.
(6) At the bottom of the page click on "Accept and Continue" to fill out the adoption application.

If an adoption application is tentatively approved, an appointment for a pre-adoption home visit will be made.

Upon approval of an adoption application, a legally binding adoption contract is signed by the applicant agreeing to specific terms of care for the dog, and specific situations when the adoptive family must contact NBGR after the adoption.

National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. maintains a nation wide network of volunteer foster homes who care for our rescued Brussels Griffons until their perfect forever home is found.

National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc., as well as most rescues ask for an adoption donation. NBGR donations can range between $300 and $500 dollars, depending on the age, health and emotional condition of the dog. We do offer reduced suggested donations for older or special needs animals.

Your adoption donation is tax deductible. National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 not for profit rescue organization.

Adoption donations are deposited into our general bank account, and used to cover veterinary treatment as well as general expenses for any Griff coming into our rescue program.

All National Brussels Griffon Rescue's officers, rescue coordinators, and foster families are volunteers, and are not paid for their time or services.

We do not place our adoptable Griffs in forever homes on a "first come-first serve basis". Each of our rescued Griffs have individual needs, activity levels and may require certain lifestyles, which our volunteer foster home families become intimately familiar with.

If an adoption application is submitted for a particular Griff which does not appear to be a compatible match for the Griff or the hopeful family, the adoption application is placed in the available applicants section of our data base until the ideal match is found for the family's needs, lifestyle and activity level, and of course the perfect match is found for one of our very deserving rescued Griffs.
