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.

August 27th Update: The puppy on the left in the photo has been adopted!

September 18th Update: The second puppy has been adopted also!.

These pups have been Adopted!

February, 2006
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 to have.

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.
