Meet Cricket!

Cricket is a sweet little black Griffon, about 9 years old, in excellent health and only 12 pounds. Her ears are cropped. As you can see by her expression, she looks like she's grinning all the time with some of her lower teeth showing. She's a busy little girl and difficult to catch in a photo. Cricket has been spayed, had dental work done to remove a few bad teeth, is up to date on shots and on heartworm preventative.

Cricket is a very easy dog to live with. She loves to be petted and could easily learn to be a lap dog. And she's also happy to go off on her own and curl up in a dog bed. She seems to prefer tile floors but will probably be happy if she can just be where you are. She's a quiet girl and rarely barks or demands much. BUT when it's time to be petted, she turns into all wiggles. She loves it!

Cricket and Gizmo (also shown on this site) came to rescue together and it's probable that they've been together for a long time. They are fond of each other and spend most of their time together. It would be wonderful if they could go to a new home together but it's not absolutely necessary. Cricket is the more independent of the two and pretty much does what she wants to. Gizmo is happy to follow along behind her. Even though he's a little more dependent, he has started exploring independently in the last few weeks and now spends quite a bit of time with the other dogs in the house. Read more about Gizmo on his page.

Both Cricket and Gizmo were kennel dogs and are just now learning about housebreaking. They are doing very well and now knows what you want them to do outside. With some patience on your part, both of them will continue to get better and better. Both are crate trained and do not have accidents in their crate.

Cricket is located in a foster home in Texas.

If you would like more information, contact Linda McKellar. 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.
