Meet McKenzie!

McKenzie is a 1 1/2 year old sweet red Brussels Griffon mix weighing 21 lbs. He has more of a smooth coat and a natural tail, similar to a pug's. His ears are short but we don't think they were cropped. He is very muscular and strong for his size and would do well in a home with older children who will tussle and play ball with him. He is leash trained but loves to run around his foster mom's large fenced yard. He will look for places to escape so a secure fence is a must.

McKenzie has a very happy temperament and gets along well with children and other dogs. He is a little shy around new people. He is looking for a family that will work with him daily, teaching him manners and making sure he gets all the exercise he needs.

When McKenzie's foster family returns home, he greets them with big smiles and lots of barks. He likes to jump on people and someone with positive training experience (or willing to take him to obedience class) would be a big plus.

McKenzie is crate trained and his foster mom is working with him on his housetraining. He will go outside to the same place each time to do his business. He has been neutered, microchipped, is up to date on vaccinations and on heartworm preventative.

McKenzie is located in Prunedale, CA.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Sharon.

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.
