  Meet Cubby!

A delightful, 3 year old Belge Smooth male. The first 2 years of his life were spent as a pampered pet sleeping in bed with his owner. Due to his owner's health issues, Cubby had to be re- homed in what was thought to be a great home. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Cubby spent his days alone, tethered in the yard. He also was not given enough to eat and came to NBGR quite underweight. Cubby's foster mom is working on that. Cubby's next home only lasted about 10 days due to no fault of Cubby's. There were 2 large dogs in the home who he was afraid of and a two year old child who chased him around. That really terrified him. His new home recognized that as much as they loved him, this was not a safe situation for Cubby and contacted NBGR.

Cubby is in a foster home with a whole bunch of Griffs and fit in immediately. Cubby is playful, affectionate, confident but not aggressive. He loves sleeping in the big bed, especially on the pillow! Cubby was described as needy... he's not, he's a typical Griff. He just loves to be with people. Cubby is a very quiet dog. In the 2 weeks he's been in his foster home, he's only barked when playing with another dog. What a pleasure! Cubby is leash trained, uses pee pads in the house and also potties outside. Cubby is crate trained but not happy about it.

Cubby is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and on heartworm preventive. He has grade II patella’s and may need surgery at some point in his life on one or both knees. He is in absolutely no pain at this time. Other than that, he is healthy.

Cubby is being lovingly fostered in Tucson, Arizona.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Kathy at krobb222@cox.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.
