TESS - ADOPTION PENDING's Info...
|Breed:||Brussels Griffon||Color:||Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With Black||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female|
Tess is an affectionate, intelligent, calm Brussels Griffon girl. Like all Griffs, Tess would love to have a home where she does not spend long hours alone and she would enjoy the company of another small dog companion. Tess' brother Toby is also available for adoption in Arizona. It would be wonderful if they could be reunited in an adoptive home. Tess is friendly to everyone she meets, and loves to be petted and fawned over. She has a very sweet disposition, and gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home. No cats, please. Tess's birthday is July 1, 2005 and she weighs about 18 lbs. Her vet says her ideal weight is no more than 17 lbs, so she is just about there! A securely fenced yard is preferred, but not necessary as long as she is never allowed outside off leash and takes walks regularly. Exercise will be paramount to her good health and longevity.
Tess's original owner loved her very much, but due to loss of employment and having to move, she was forced to re-home her beloved Brussels Griffons. Tess required vaccinations, a micro chip, hernia surgery and a major teeth cleaning when rescued. All this cost $540.00, and any donation that you make is tax deductible since ABGRA is a non-profit charity organization. After it is received, you will receive a letter confirming that your donation is tax deductible. A ChipIn button is provided below, but if you would prefer to donate by check, please make it payable to ABGRA and mail it to: ABGRA Treasurer, 300 Wexford Dr., Lemont, IL 60439. Any amount donated will be gratefully accepted and very much appreciated!
Tess is healthy, spayed, current on vaccines, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. She is being fostered in Las Vegas NV. We prefer to place Tess within driving distance of where she is being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must fly to Las Vegas to get her and she must fly home in the cabin with her new family. Under no circumstances can Tess ever be shipped in cargo.
If you are interested in adopting Tess, please submit an adoption application at www,abgra.org. If you have questions, please contact us at the email link below.
Rescue Group Info...
American Brussels Griffon Rescue Alliance Inc. (ABGRA) 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 will endeavor to accept these Griffs, regardless of their circumstance, knowing that we might be their last hope. We strive to leave no Griff behind.
We are especially mindful of the Griffs that have spent their lives in commercial breeding facilities and who will have a chance at a better life through our efforts.
ABGRA is a non-profit national rescue group founded to provide commercially bred Brussels Griffons and Affenpinschers a chance at living in a home for the first time as a pet.
All adoptions go through our website-
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.
ABGRA is a non-profit national rescue group founded to provide commercially bred Brussels Griffons and Affenpinschers a chance at living in a home for the first time as a pet. We strive to leave no griff behind and rescue these breeds from city/county shelters when foster home space is available. We are an all foster home based rescue that provides complete vetting for our dogs prior to adoption.
