Meet Taz!

Taz is a very social and active 6 month old smooth male Brussels Griffon. He weighs about 11 lbs and will probably be 14-15 lbs. when he is fully grown. He looks like a miniature Boxer. He would probably do well with an older child and other dogs that are at least his same size. He likes my Griffs and wants to play with them but he is a bit too rough as they are smaller than him. He met the cat next door and wasn't at all aggressive towards him.

With enough attention and proper training, I believe Taz has the potential to be a wonderful and obedient lifelong pal. He craves human companionship and wants to please. He is very loving and the least little bit of attention makes him ecstatic. After a good romp out in the yard to release some of his puppy energy, he will settle down and take a nice long nap.

Taz is crate trained and has never had an accident in his crate. He sleeps in it all night without a peep as long as he can be near you. He is not completely house trained, but we are working on that. I'm sure once he is, he would love to sleep in the bed with you at night. He does all his business in the yard as soon as he is taken outside. He is learning that he gets lots of praise and attention when he gets it right and that makes him very happy.

Taz would do best with someone who understands he is in the active puppy stage and has the time and patience to work with him. He needs a lot of love and will reward you with all of his. I know he will be a wonderful pet for someone.

Taz is neutered and up to date on shots. He is located near Austin, Texas

If you would like more information, contact Margie Simon. 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.

Taz has been Adopted!

January 2005
Update from Taz's new Mom:

"Taz is doing great! He loves the backyard - he gets the "zoomies" and runs in circles as fast as he can. It is really funny. The kids can't wait to play with him when they get home from school. Taz is starting to learn what time they get home, and he starts getting antsy. He has truly been a joy to us. We have taken several pics together and as soon as I get them developed I will send some to you. We love him soooo much.

Thank you again for following your heart, Jennifer"
