Audrey is a
darling 2 year old smooth Brussels Griffon. She was released by a breeder because
she was too small for breeding and because she was thought to be blind. Audrey
is not blind but the vet thinks her optic nerves do not look normal. Probably
a congenital defect. She is spayed, heartworm negative and up to date on all her

her & make sure she gets out. She will walk on the lead and loves to sit on her
foster mom's lap and loves to snuggle up close in bed. She is very shy but is
now taking treats from people. She loves to tear up paper and play tug-of-war.
She gets around well and her eye sight doesn't seem to limit her.
Audrey is looking
for her forever home where she can get special attention and lots of love.

If you would like more information,
contact Beth Lane. If you are interested
in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.
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.

Audrey has been Adopted!
September 21st Update:
Little Audrey is doing just great! She is getting along fine with Bosley. The two of them eat together, sleep together, play together, walk together etc. She loves playing with "her" toys. You should see her picking up the squeaky and running around the house with it in her mouth. The squeaky is almost as big as she is (not really, it just seems that way). She has her favorites, but plays with all of them.
She is a very special little lady. If I had it to do over again, I would still fly to get her. I have no regrets. She is the perfect little dog for my household, and I love her dearly.
Her potty training is coming along just fine. She will walk over to the door and let me know when she needs to "go". She has done wonderful. She knows that my morning alarm means it is time to get up, and "go" outside. She starts jumping all over the bed, and licking me in the face.
I have seen no evidence of blindness. She knows her way around the house without any problems at all. I haven't taken her to the Vet School yet. I wanted to make sure she was comfortable with her new surroundings, and also with Bosley and me. She seems to have adjusted very well. She is very social when we take our walks, and will let the neighbors pet her. Her little tail just wags and wags.
