We’d like to introduce you to handsome Finley the Affenpinscher! He's a happy-go-lucky boy and quite a lover with his human family. He’s very striking with natural ears and tail. Finley is house trained, sleeps in the big bed well, loves kisses and cuddles, is a great watch dog and companion, and kennels like a champ when necessary. However, he would prefer not to be crated for more than 2-3 hours at a time and would love to sleep in bed with you at night. He’s young, playful, affectionate and enjoys stuffed and chew toys. Finley is good in the car and on the leash.

Finley - Finn for short – is a macho kind of guy and likes to strut his stuff. He loves to play with other dogs but sometimes has issues with the boys. It isn’t because he is a bad boy. Quite the opposite! He’s nearly perfect in every way. He is just an alpha male and gets along best with females and non-alpha male dogs. Finley would love a playful small dog playmate and requires a securely fenced yard, along with a person who works from home so he has few hours alone. Because of his small size, he will only be placed in a home with children over 14 years old. Since he is an alpha boy, he needs an adopter with previous pet experience.

Finley weighs about 14 pounds and his birthday is 11/25/2014. He is healthy, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, heart worm negative and taking preventative. He is currently being fostered in Jasper Indiana and we prefer to place him within driving distance of his foster home. 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. Finn is small enough to be carried away by a coyote or other predator so may never be left outside alone. Being a short nosed breed, Affenpinschers are sensitive to extreme heat and cold, so care must be taken when you are outside with him on very hot and very cold days. He must always be securely harnessed and leashed when outside a fenced area and crated or seat belted in the back seat when in a vehicle.

You may submit an adoption application for Finley at Questions may be emailed to but please read his story first to see if he is a good match for your lifestyle.

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.

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 incured 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 adoptors. In most cases, these breeds are not recommened 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.
