Meet Marcel!

Marcel is a 9 pound friendly and outgoing Brussels Griffon. He is beautiful deep red color and is about a year old. He is neutered and up to date on shots. Marcel is well mannered and knows commands like sit, jump up on couch and sit on my lap. He is lead trained and is housebroken. He has never had an accident but with Brussels Griffons we learn never say never. He uses our dog door. He sleeps in his crate at night and when we go out.

Marcel is quite a Velcro guy and follows his foster mom's every step. He is undergoing a make-over (haircut) and we will post more pictures soon.

Marcel is located in Houston, TX.

If you would like more information, please fill out our Adoption Application and contact Margie.

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.

Marcel has been Adopted!

Update from Marcel's new family:

January 13, 2008

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the complimentary one-year membership and also update you on Marcel's progress.

He is doing just great. He is adjusting well to his new home and new brother. He is not taking anything from Isaac now. They have started to play together too. (just as you said). It seems no matter what toy the one has the other wants and trust me Isaac has never lacked for toys. There favorite tug-of-war toy is a plush stuffed puppy dog we got for Isaac when he was little, which I might add, the toy is about the size of Marcel. One grabs one end and the other grabs the other and away they go. The first time they played Marcel won or maybe Isaac let him win.

Marcel is enjoying his walks too. As a matter of fact, he just knows when it is about walk time. He will sit by the drawer where I keep the leads and harnesses waiting in anticipation. He is one smart little boy. Still does not like the grass or cold, but he now has a very high-style wool jacket to keep him warm on those cold nights. We have taken them both to Petsmart --- Isaac's favorite store and the both of them caused quite a stir. Marcel did wonderfully there too. I believe he knows what heel means along with wait and stay or he is taking his cues from Isaac. It seems that they both watch each other and follow.

I also have found the two of them sleeping together, curled up in sun spots or on the family room sofa.

We are truly blessed to have him in our lives. Hope all is well with you.

Take care,
Sharon, Joe, Isaac and Marcel
