Meet Jessie and Hyden!
Adoption Pending!

Jessie and Hyden are nine year old brothers who have never been separated and do everything together, so they will need to be placed together. They each weigh approximately ten pounds, are neutered, on heartworm preventative, and are healthy and well cared for.(Hyden does have a skin problem for which he needs medicated baths). These two precious little Griffs are being given up for re-homing by their owner in a very difficult decision. They are not unloved. They were happy, housetrained, well-adjusted little boys when there was *just her*. However, they have regressed in their housetraining since a spouse and child have entered their world.

Jessie and Hyden illustrate how the Brussels Griffon may be a perfect pet in one circumstance and a disaster in another. These boys are needy and (like many Brussels Griffons) have been unable to adjust to the lack of time and attention in their expanded family. Their owner has perceived sadly but correctly that hers is no longer the right home for them.

We are looking for a home for both of these boys together, where there is a dog-savy full-time *mom*, and no young children.

Jessie and Hyden are in southwestern Illinois, not far from St. Louis.

If you would like more information, contact Beth Lane. 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.
