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.
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.
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and withdrawn when he meets new men.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.
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
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
Kay and Jeffery too + all the GeoBarb kids
for more rescue stories!
