Meet Gremlin/Sam!

Gremlin’s foster mom describes him as a comically sober and serious little fellow – sweet and polite and a true Velcro griffon. He was rescued from the streets and was terribly matted and thin and it seemed as if he had been on the run for some time. He needed to be shaved down completely to be cleaned up – and when his hair is grown back a bit he will look like a proper little griffon.

Gremlin – who seems to respond to the name “Sam” – is now understanding how to be a part of the pack in his foster home. He is working well on his housebreaking habits – and while he may backslide a bit in a new home – he is doing pretty well. He has attached himself to his foster mom in the manner many griffs do with their people and likes to go everywhere with her. Gremlin can be a little shy with new people and needs patience and time to warm up.

We think that Gremlin is about 4 years old. He is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. Gremlin is heartworm negative and takes heartworm preventative. Gremlin weighs about 10 lbs. He is located in Iowa.

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

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.
