Chico's Story...
Chico has come a long way since being in foster care with the same family for two months. He got shuffled around when we first pulled him from the pound through no fault of his own. He was very self protective and growled when touched sometimes. He is a happy little guy now and handles touching all over. He was groomed last week and handled that well. He loves to be in the same room with people and is just content to hang out. He does not ask for much other than companionship. He tolerates all dogs and when they try to get playful with him he just stands there or walks away.. He never gets upset even with two that I have that get pushy and jealous at times.

He walks well on a leash and is housebroken and crate trained. In the beginning he would lift his leg when left alone but that seems to have abated also. He loves is greenies and does chew on a rawhide for short spells but does not seem to know about toys. He follows me around and even outside will only venture out on the lawn and then comes right back to our patio.

I would still like to seem him go to a home without small children because I feel he may startle easily and become self protective. We do not know his background so we don't know if he has a reason to be that way. Chico seemed to have some nervous jumpiness which also appears to have lessened. He has become an adorable little happy boy and I hope we can find a home for him where that continues.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chico, a Bedford Affenpinscher/Brussels Griffon dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Affenpinscher/Brussels Griffon for sale in Bedford, or seeking a Affenpinscher/Brussels Griffon dog from a breeder in Bedford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bedford 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 Bedford 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 Affenpinscher/Brussels Griffon breeders who help with Affenpinscher/Brussels Griffon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bedford paves the way for another one to be saved.
