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


I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

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 May 8, 2007 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, If you have questions, please contact us at the email link below.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

TESS - ADOPTION PENDING, a Mesa 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 Mesa, or seeking a Brussels Griffon dog from a breeder in Mesa.

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