Posted Breed: Brussels Griffon (long coat). Please contact Joyce (joyce@animalcompassionteam.com) for more information about this pet. Frankie and Grace were rescued from a puppy mill. They had no idea what life as a "normal" dog felt like. They have been in foster care for a few months where they are learning to be dogs. They are very bonded and we would love for them to be adopted together. They are leery of strangers but once over the uncertainty, they are little love bugs. Housetraining is work in progress so you will need to be willing to patiently work on that. They are great little dogs looking for love and a home. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption. Every pet adoption comes with a free health exam in the first two weeks, provided by Pet Medical Center, Fresno, http://petmedcenterfresno.com/ Adoption Fees: Dog Adoption Donation: $185 Cat Adoption Donation: $65

More About Brussels Griffon Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

He is a very gentle dog with all people and he is very good when riding in cars. He loves affection and eating! He spends most of his day outdoors, but comes into the house at about 8pm. If presented with his dog bed, he will lay down right on it, He sleeps on a dog bed by the bedside and will not disturb you, unless he needs to go outside to potty, then he will come straight back into the house and go back to sleep on his dog bed. He is good on a leash and will walk right beside you. He has been living around cats, so he is also very good around them too. He also becoming more used to taking baths and tolerating a blow dryer for drying his fur. Pinky prefers to not be alone, so he will need to be around another dog if possible! {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Sassy is sweet, affectionate girl who just wants to play, cuddle, and be there to make you happy. She will be excited every time you walk thru the door and can't wait to curl up in your lap when you sit down to watch tv. She loves to play with her foster siblings. Her coat is long and is worry. Sassy's favorite past time is stealing your sock and running thru the house. She loves hearing her name & gets so excited when she hears "SASSY!" Sassy takes time to warm up. She would do best in a quiet environment without kids. She is protective of her person and she resource guards from other dogs, but not from her people. If you are interested in Sassy, please fill out an application and her foster mom will get back to you. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). If you've ever wanted the perfect dog, then Vinnie is the boy for you. He was in an accident and shattered his pelvis. Doctor wasn't sure if they were going to be able to save him, thankfully they did. He definitely lived in a home at one point. Vinnie is potty trained and comes fully spoiled. He loves sleeping with his people and will give non-stop kisses. He is very expressive and will "talk" to you when he needs something. He's quite the little character. Vinnie would not do well in a home with small children. They move too fast and make him nervous. He needs to live in a secure home with a secured back yard because he is terrified of fireworks. If you think you might be the perfect family for this wonderful guy, contact his foster mom Wendy at wendy3676@att.net or fill out the adoption application. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.
