Meet Payton!

Meet Payton. He is an absolutely darling 1.5 year old neutered male Griff who has just not yet found the right home. His first owner was a busy professional man who did not have time for him. Payton is a typical velcro Griff who wants to be with his person all the time, awake and asleep. Unfortunately in his first home he was not given either the time or training he needed. He was left for long hours in a crate and was not potty trained.

A co-worker of the first owner decided this unwanted dog would make a good Christmas present for her sister. As with many such unrequested *gifts* this is not working out. The present new owner and her husband work full time. They do not currently have the time or desire to make a commitment to Payton.

Payton is a young smooth who exemplifies his namesake's (Walter Payton) nickname, *Sweetness*. He wants to be with his family constantly, loves people, seems to like children, and loves attention. Payton wants to be a lap dog, and needs a home where he won't be left alone for long periods of time. In the home of someone who has the time and patience to work on manners and house training, this little (12 lb) youngster will become a devoted and endearing constant companion.

Payton is located in north-central Illinois.

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.
