Meet Glory!

Glory is a nine year old puppy mill breeder. She has a very sound temperament. She is fine with children and other animals. When she saw the neighbors' cats it didn't even faze her. My nine years old was running his really fast remote control car past her head the second day she was here. She didn't even bother to lift her head to look. She has the sweetest personality. She likes to sleep on the bed with us, she has started to play with my dogs and she is doing well on her house training. However if you don't take her out enough, she will go in the house. She is getting better about it, but she doesn't let you know. She knows what to do when she is outside. She is proud of herself after and she runs right to me so that I can tell her what a good girl she is. It's really cute. I leave her in our downstairs kitchen when I go out and she usually goes on the floor. I haven't tried to crate her. I put a potty pad down in the kitchen; she has used it a couple times but usually goes wherever. I do not have a crate that is big enough for her.

On the negative side she eats her feces sometimes but is getting a little better. She doesn't try outside anymore, but if she goes in the kitchen she sometimes eats it or half of it. The only thing that I have seen her react to was a thunderstorm. We had loud thunder and lightening during the night once and it really scared her. She got between my husband and I in bed and we reassured her and that was it. She has never reacted to any other loud noises.

Her coat was terrible when she got here. You could see her skin and she had some bald patches. With some good food, in just a month, you cannot see any skin at all. She does not have much hair on the back of her ears.

When she got here, she had no idea what a toy was or even a bone. She looked at the bone like, "what am I supposed to do with this thing?" She knows now and has even started to play with toys. I have seen the Griffon start to come out in her. I have caught her pulling down clothes that are sitting on the bed, to dump them on the floor! I was so excited to see her do this! I thought yep, the Griffon is starting to come out! Well, I have probably rambled enough! It just always makes me so happy to see their progress. It's like watching a new born baby find things for the first time!

Glory is located in St Louis, MO

If you would like more information, contact Margie Simon. 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.
