Meet Bugsy!

Bugsy is a very sweet, 4 year old male Brussels Griffon. He's neutered, in excellent health, all shots up to date, etc. He is a belge rough Griffon who weighs approx. 10 lbs. He has been groomed every month.

Unfortunately, about a year ago Bugsy's owner accepted a new position which involved many hours and travel. When in town, she's not home until late in the evening and rarely there on weekends. Although a hard decision, she has felt it would be best for Bugsy to find a loving home where he would get attention and have companionship.

Bugsy is more crate trained than house trained (primarily because his owner has been gone so much). He's very smart and responsive when you work with him. He's currently left during the day in the kitchen with a wee pad on the floor (which he uses). He barks when the door bell rings, but otherwise doesn't make much noise. He has never been heard to growl. He is always friendly and happy. He's been around children and other dogs - and just wants to play, be held, or sit at your feet or in your lap. He is extremely non-aggressive. He will be a wonderful pet in the right home.

Bugsy is located in Lexington, Ky.

If you would like more information, contact Beth. 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.

Bugsy has been Adopted!

From Bugsy's new family:

We could not have picked a more perfect match for us and Skipper. He has not urinated in the house for two days now. Of course he gets a lot of yard time often. And he has learned that first thing in the morning is quiet coffee time and not playtime. But he does get a lot of playtime. He is a quick learner and is very eager to please. We just love him and are so happy to have him. We will keep you posted regularly.
