Meet the Puppies!
Meet our two
youngest Griff puppies. Born May 7th, 2005 These little beauties were the survivors
out of a litter of four. The puppies and their dam came from the Phoenix Humane
Society and are being fostered near Phoenix, AZ. Puppy #1 is the smallest
at 2 lb 4 oz and Puppy #2 weighs 3 lb 7 oz. They have been spayed, micro-chipped
and will be up to date on their shots. They will be ready to go into their loving,
forever homes after July 30th.
If you would like more information,
contact Carole Ross. 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.

These pups have been Adopted!
Here is an update on one of the AZ pups now named Ginger.
We are having a great time
with Ginger. She is very, very smart. She has learned and is learning all of the
family house rules and has known most for some time already. She now walks on
the lead proficiently. When we first got her she was like a fish on a string going
every which way. She will sit, sit pretty, lay down, play dead, crawl, spin in
circles, speak on command (rarely any other time). She will go potty by ringing
a bell by the door (we were unwilling to cut a hole in the house for a doggie
door so we just trained the dogs to ring the bell), get in her basket, get in
her crate, and speak or do some other trick before jumping up on the bed or couches
to be with us (asking permission). I think she may even be a little smarter than
our other Griff BG. She also has the neatest little Griff attitude that we just
adore. Other people would probably think she and other Griffs were kind of snoody
but we have grown accustomed to the "it's all about me" syndrome the Griffs seem
Here are some recent pictures.
Ginger has outgrown our BG by a few inches as you can tell. They both love to
lay on the carpet in the sun by the window, Ginger chewing on her leather bone.
