Meet Rowdy!

Rowdy is a 4-year old male, belge, rough coat Griff who weighs in at a whopping 6 pounds! But his foster mom thinks Rowdy is such a sweet boy that he could not possibly be named right.

Rowdy is a puppy mill dog who responded very quickly to love and attention. His favorite place to be is by your side, in your lap, or velcroed to your ankles. He is learning to accept good things from the hands of people instead of expecting only bad. He travels well in a crate, does well on a leash with a harness, and is working very hard on his house training.

Rowdy has learned that belly rubs are his favorite thing, dog beds are super, and toys are for playing. He loves playing with his foster brothers and sisters. He is becoming the social butterfly and has attended dog shows, shopped at pet stores, and visited the homes of friends. He would do well in a home with no small children, as he is still somewhat fearful of loud voices or sudden movements. He has responded better to women than men. He is super smart and picks up on things quite easily.

Rowdy has a cute head tilt when you are talking to him, which he loves, and his little tongue tips out of his mouth quite becomingly. He has not yet developed his jumping skills; he will jump off a couch but not on. He leans up on your legs and scratches to get your attention when he wants to get up with you.

Rowdy will make someone a wonderful, loving companion. He has a lot of love to give; hes been saving it up for four years!

Rowdy is microchipped, up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventative. He is located near Little Rock, Arkansas.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Carol.

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.
