  Meet Cubby!
Adoption Pending

Are you yearning for an adventurous, puppyish, very active, slightly ornery, fun loving little guy in your life? Then NBGR's handsome 3 year old Cubby near Davenport, Iowa just might be the one you've been searching for!

But first, Cubby has a small list of special requests for his new happily ever after:

1 - An adoptive family within reasonable driving distance of his foster home.

2 - A yard with very secure 6 foot privacy fencing. (No wire fencing. Cubby is an accomplished climber and escape artist.)

3 - No children under the age of 12. (He is unsure of young active children.)

4 - An active family who enjoys a high energy companion. (This little guy loves to play and run like the wind.)

5 - A family who would enjoy spending lots of time in the backyard with Cubby - rain, snow or shine. (Cubby's favorite activity is playing in the backyard. He needs outside supervision and a playmate.)

6 - A family who is home most of the time with other small dogs. (Cubby is a velcro Griff. Alone time is an unhappy time for this boy.)


After fun filled days of playing, keeping you entertained, hanging out, and simply being your best buddy, snuggling in the big bed at night would be just one more little slice of heaven for this precious little boy!

Cubby walks well on lead, and would enjoy brisk walks and short jogs. A collar and harness attached to a leash coupler is recommended.

Crating is not his favorite thing and it may never be, but this boy desperately wants to please, so slowly but surely he is beginning to accept that sometimes it is necessary for his safety.

He is a submissive boy who simply wants to get along with everyone, which includes his foster siblings ranging from 4 to 25 lbs. He loves them all!

They simply don't come much better than Cubby! This little guy is all about fun! Adventure is the name of the game for Cubby! He's also a little lover, but a little on the shy side as he learns all about kisses. He recently began sharing smooches with his foster mom...sooooo endearing! Love is definitely in the air with Cubby around!

For sure he will make you feel very loved, and we are certain you will fall hopelessly head over heels for him in a New York minute!

No doubt, it will be a very bittersweet day for Cubby's foster mom when his forever family is chosen, she waves good bye, and he rides off into the sunset with his new best buddy as they head out to begin their new happily ever after! Cubby is one very special little Griff!!!!

Cubby is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, on monthly heartworm preventative and micro chipped. He currently weighs 12.8 lbs and is slightly under weight. The vet advised 14-15 lbs should be his goal. His foster mom is helping him reach that goal. He has not been tested with cats or other small animals so it is unknown if he would be compatible or exhibit a prey drive towards them.

Here are some cute videos of Cubby: Video 1, Video 2, Video 3

Cubby is being fostered near Davenport, Iowa.
