Meet Jeffrey!

Jeffrey was part of a dog auction where dogs that are no longer needed in puppy mill breeding programs are sold to the highest bidder. Jeffrey changed hands several times before he found his way into our rescue program. He now has been neutered and is up to date on shots and is on heartworm preventative.

Jeffrey is a red rough Griffon who weighs 10 1/2 pounds and is just 20 months old. His foster mom says he is an energetic youngster who is demanding and loves toys. He takes them all out of the toy box in order to select the one he wants to play with. He walks on the leash and he gets along with other dogs.

Jeffrey is friendly and outgoing but can be rather shy, a bit frightened and withdrawn when he meets new men. He is wary of them. He is in the process of being housetrained and crate trained and has to learn not to pout and bark when he is crated and left alone. He wants to be with people especially women all the time.

Jeffrey is located in NW Florida.

If you would like more information, contact Margie. 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.

Jeffrey has been Adopted!

04-15-07 Update from Jeffrey's new Mom:

We have had another lesson in the fact that God works in mysterious ways...

We wanted a girl but fate introduced us to Jeffery....and what a delight and wonderful little guy he is... He came into our home and was immediately accepted by the other kids....and they have made sure he has learned most of the rules...

Only took him a day to learn the doggie door, the pecking order - Missy the oldest made sure of that...Chipper thinks its about time he had a male buddy to help him and he has been showing Jeffery all around the yard, the best places to do his job etc. Gila loves to play with him as long as he doesn't take HER toys.

He has found the toy boxes and must think that it is daily job to take all the toys out and line them up for all to see at least twice a day. He is much better at learning that the garage door is a no no door....so we are very careful not to open it if the big door to the outside is up.
He is still having a some mistakes in the house but we are working on that by making frequent trips with all of them to the back yard. And trying to find one of the things (bellyband) for him to wear..will ask Lisa. .If I get one I can easily sew a bunch up if they are made of sewable material.

He is eating well and. has mastered the art of keeping Kay and I still by being a constant lap buddy...The others get their nose out of joint sometimes so we have been very busy making sure they all get plenty of loving also. He does seem to prefer our laps over the dog beds however. He sleeps in bed with Kay and does well all night.

Our Vet gave him a clean bill of health and she too has fallen in love with him..
He really doesn't like it too much when we go out, but he behaves himself and is super excited when we come back....its either because we have returned or the fact that we brought more food into the house.

This little boy is a delight and we could not have found a better addition to our family.

We will keep in touch The best of everything to you all

Donna and Kay and Jeffery too + all the GeoBarb kids
