  Meet Kenna!

Itís almost impossible to write a bio on a Brussels Griffon without the words cute, adorable, or sweet somewhere in the first sentence. Kenna is all these things and more wrapped up in one dainty, little 10-pound package. This precious, 7-year-old girl was given away by a breeder to a kind lady who contacted NBGR when she realized Kenna was not a good match for her elderly mother. Like many breeder dogs, Kenna was very nervous and fearful of people when she first arrived at her foster momís house, but is becoming a bubbly, bouncy, tail-wagging Brussels Griffon.

Kenna has a wonderful temperament, gets along great with her 4-legged-foster siblings, and loves food, treats and bones. She follows her foster mom around the house, but prefers to curl up in a doggy bed rather than sit in your lap, and is still not quite comfortable when you try to pick her up. But the more confident she becomes the cuter she gets and you canít help falling in love with her. She has started adjusting to home life very quickly and there is every reason to believe that in time, with a little patience and understanding, she will make some lucky person a wonderful house pet and companion. Kenna is housebroken, crate trained, spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, just had her teeth cleaned and was given a clean bill of health. Although she would enjoy some basic training (sit, down, etc.) she is quite even-tempered,well- behaved and not in the least hyper or destructive. She will do best in an adults-only home with one or two other small dogs to play with.

Kenna is being fostered in the Indianapolis, Indiana area.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Beth at Griffyudx@comcast.net.

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.
