  Meet Stewie!
(#2580 )

Stewie is a sweet little boy likely more a griffon wannabee than a pure griff with a cute tail - who came from a shelter in California. He is a mere 7.5 lbs. and he is the sweetest little fellow you will meet. He was named Stewie after Rod Stewart because of the hair similarity when we first got him! You can see his hairy self before grooming in his pictures.

Stewie has been learning his housebreaking manners and is doing quite well although we expect he will make some mistakes when he gets to his new home. He has learned to walk on a leash and has been working on sit and stay, etc. He really likes to snuggle in next to you when you are relaxing although he is not really a lap dog he is cozy. He also loves to carry his little squirrel around with him.

Stewie has been with another dog and a cat (who he occasionally gets very excited about and barks at) in his foster home. Stewie was neutered and brought up to date on vaccines and he had some major dental work done (his smile is missing a few teeth.) He is heartworm negative and takes heartworm preventative.

Stewie is being fostered in Oakland, California.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki at vboneill@optonline.net.

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.
