Wally is a sweet, happy 4 year old boy. He weighs about 20 lbs but is slightly on the thin side and is working on gaining a little more weight. He is in very good health – neutered and up-to-date on all shots.
Wally lived in very bad conditions the first four years of his life and is now in a loving foster home. He immediately learned the joy of sleeping in bed with his foster mom and thinks the household should retire at 6PM as cuddling in bed is his favorite thing (although cuddling on the couch in front of the tv is also fun)!
Wally is working on learning good habits – working on his housebreaking and his lead training. He is insecure outside and when he is walked on a lead he becomes very timid. Wally gets along very well with other small dogs but is very afraid of larger dogs.
Wally is a “blue” color, but has almost no hair. He has some wispy bits of hair here and there but mostly soft chamois like skin. He will need special care because of this – like a Chinese crested. He will need less grooming than a regular rough coated griff – but he would like a small wardrobe to keep him warm this winter!
Wally is being fostered in Glendale, West Virginia. New photos coming soon.
If you would like more information,
contact Vicki O’Neill. 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.

Wally has been Adopted!
This is Wally, (center) totally exhausted from the Rescue Parade in Louisville Kentucky, crashing with his "brothers" Elijah and Simon at the hotel. I think he has been "mine" in my heart since I first saw him in the shelter.....it is time to make it official. He is as much a part of this "family" as any of the Griffs I show; I love him dearly.
