Sept. 9, 2003, National
Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. was contacted by Harris County Rabies/Animal Control
in Houston, Texas to help save a small dog they thought to be a Griffon. He was
picked up as a stray, in serious need of grooming to say nothing of his horrific
odor. His time was up at Rabies Control and they had no foster home for him.
Harris in the Shelter
Under all those mats was
what we could call an"Exotic Griffon Want-to-be." Adorable, loveable friendly
and looking for the perfect forever home.
After visiting the Vet
Janell and Mark Copas responded
immediately and arranged his release. They drove Harris to our vet for shots de-matting
and dipping. A half hour later his seven pound body looked like it had been run
over with a dull lawnmower and the smell from the dip was breathtaking. But he
was clean, de-flead, heartworm negative and totally exhausted.
After bringing him to my house for pictures, Winona took him home for rehab
where he fit right in with all her Griffons.
Today October 17 Harris is ready for adoption. He is just a pup about six months
old. Crate trained, lap trained, house trained and neutered. Winona treated him
to his new doo by the best Griffon Groomer in Houston.
Harris is located in Texas.
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.
