  Meet Griffy!

Griffy is one happy little lady! She was surrendered by her owners to a Sacramento-area shelter because they were no longer able to care for her. Griffy is a 10-year-old smooth belge.

You will notice she is more than slightly overweight. She needs a home where her family members are willing to work with her to get her weight down. Griffy was approximately 35 lbs. when she first came to rescue. She is under 30 lbs. now, so Griffy is well on her way to her bikini season weight loss goal!

Griffy is a very good girl. She enjoys tummy rubs and is great about going potty outside. Even though she is an older gal, she is very lively and energetic. She loves running around in the grass, and her tail is always wagging. When she's excited, her tail wagging makes her entire body wiggle!

She is looking for a home where she can get a lot of attention and can go on walks so she can get her girlish figure back. She loves just about everyone, and is good with other dogs.

Griffy is spayed and heartworm negative. She is up to date on her vaccinations, and will be microchipped before being placed in her new home.

Griffy is being fostered in the Sacramento, CA area.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Crystal at cnratliff@gmail.com.

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.
