Meet Melvin!

Melvin had the misfortune of being born in a Puppy Mill. He was fortunate however, in the fact the Puppy Miller decided he was too large for their so called 'breeding program' so was sold at a Puppy Mill auction.

Brussels Griffons have been reported to have sold as low as $5.00 each at some of these dog auctions and you can imagine what happens to those pups sold to Bunchers at those prices.

Mel has been neutered, and has a microchip. He is up to date on shots, heartworm negative and started on preventative.

Mel is a red rough Brussels Griffon. He weighs about 16 pounds, and was born July 2005. Mel was adopted and had adjusted well to his new home. He proved to be a wonderful loving companion and got along well with the family children. Through no fault of his own he was returned to his foster home because of divorce in his family. Please open your heart and home to this boy. Mel is being fostered in Augusta, KS.

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.
