Meet Dexter & Danny!

Note: This dog is not in our program.
This is a courtesy listing only, to assist in finding him/her a home.

Dexter and Danny are two male pure breed Brussels Griffons. Dexter is 16 months and 7.2lbs of pure personality. He is a red rough coat variety. He has a nice stocky build and loves to cuddle. Dexter has an amazing personality and everyone just loves him. Dexter hasn't met a stranger, he's a great clown! Danny is 13 months old and 8lbs he is also a rough coat variety and the color is called "Belge" (tan w/black tips). He is active & fun... a little shy at first though. He has been with us for about 3 weeks and he's come a long way and is much better about being so timid though we think he will need time to settle into a new home too. Danny is the shyer of the two and really relies on Dexter to gain whatever confidences and trusts he has. He is sweet and loves to be held and snuggles in once he trusts. Both do very well with other dogs. Together they are two of the nicest pups we have ever had in. Love this breed!!

Originally we were adopting these two out separately but since we have had them we have noticed that they play very well together and seem quite bonded at this point. We are now looking for a home where they could remain together...or if separated both be going to a home where there would be a playmate close in age and size to them. They both love to play for hours and entertain themselves well...and us just by virtue of being them! Both pups were released by their breeder who had planned to show them but decided against it. They will need some work with house training but should learn quickly as Griffs are smart pups. They are up to date on vaccines and have been neutered and micro-chipped.

If you're looking for a pup that will entertain, charm and delight you on a daily basis, this is your breed! They love to run and play on the beach or in the yard. This breed was featured in the film "As Good As It Gets" with Jack Nicholson; the dog really was central to the film plot. Hanging out with these guys, you'll see why pretty quickly. They are smart, affectionate, playful and curious. They seem to be speaking to you with their eyes. Brussels Griffons are a very uncommon breed. If interested in adopting please submit an adoption application. Any questions email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com

Dexter & Danny are with Yorkies, Inc. in Taunton, MA. For more information, please E-Mail Cathie at CeCe820@aol.com.
