Meet Gottfried!

Gottfried was born on August 12, 2001 and is a red rough 14 pound neutered Griffon. He has a microchip and is current on all his vaccinations.

Gottfried is extremely submissive i.e., will usually lay on his back when clipping his nails. He is full of life and can even make your worst enemy smile. Gottfried knows no stranger and makes friends easy, but prefers your lap or a spot under the covers when it's time to go bed. Gottfried has a lot of love to give, but definitely needs this love reciprocated.

Gottfried is potty trained (will wait all day until someone lets him out to relieve himself) and has never experienced separation anxiety (he normally just sleeps all day or looks out the window until we come home). He absolutely never tears up anything when left alone. Gottfried knows several commands: sit, no, treat-treat, go get your toy, crate, daddy, do you wanna go for a ride or walk.

Gottfried is located in Arkansas.

If you would like more information, contact Marjorie 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.

Gottfried has been Adopted!

From Gottfried's new family:

Gottfried (now known as "Sparky") is doing great! We absolutely love him. He has adjusted to his new surroundings and canine siblings with very little anxiety or stress, and our dogs have accepted him as well. We are so glad you chose us to be his adoptive family.

Shortly after arriving, Sparky had an "extreme makeover" with a bath, haircut, nail clipping and a trip to the vet. My vet diagnosed his rash as a bacterial infection resulting from severe allergies. (The midwest is known for provoking allergies in humans...canines are no exception.) Sparky received an injection of antibiotic and prednisone, along with oral medications, a switch in dog food to Hills' Ultra ZD, and antibiotic eye ointment for his left eye, which was also infected. For the next month, he'll get medicated baths, too. Today, I am happy to report that the rash/infection has almost completely cleared up and the lashes are starting to grow back on the eye that was infected.

Thanks again for making Sparky a part of our family.

Regards, Chris
