Meet Ernie!

Ernie is a sweet happy loving boy who is a two year old mix of Brussels griffon and pug. He has pug like coloring but has some parts of him that look like a smooth Brussels griffon also.

Ernie was owner surrendered to a shelter with his sister who is rough coated but with a curly tail their family did not have enough time for them and they were spending way too many hours in a crate. His sister is in a new home already and now Ernie is looking for a new home.

Ernie is a pretty well adjusted guy. He walked in to his foster home and found the toy box right away. He wants to play and play with the other griff in his foster home. He loves squeaky toys and will fetch them for you. He still has lots of puppy in him and can get in to mischief! His foster home has a cat and he is quite cautious with her.

Ernie weighs about 16 lbs. but could stand to lose a little weight. He is neutered and is up-to-date on vaccines.

Ernie is being fostered in Oakland, CA.

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

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.
