Meet Bister!

Bister came in to rescue yesterday as an owner surrender his owner did not have enough time for him on a day to day basis and felt he would do better in a new home. Within a short period of time he warmed up to me and he is very sweet and affectionate.

Bister is a big boy approximately 18 lbs. He is about two years old and is neutered. He is a bit bashful at first but if you sit and let him come to you he does cautiously. Once he is comfortable he likes to play and he loves to zoom around the room typical griffy behavior.

Bister is somewhat housebroken but he will need to be monitored closely and will probably make some mistakes when he goes to a new home.

Bister is very very active. He needs a home where he will get lots of exercise - and he seems quite athletic. He is good with other dogs (there are two other griffs in his foster home) and he is doing well with the cat in his foster home.

Bister is being fostered in Southern Connecticut.

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

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.
