  Meet DeDe!

National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. has no doubt the stars lined up to make DeDe's happily ever after dream come true of being reunited with her long lost sibling Cubby!

DeDe and Cubby began their life in 2013 in Arizona with their first mom who also owned DeDe and Cubby's mother. They were a very happy little threesome until May 2016 when their mom was diagnosed with a serious illness, making the care of 3 Griffs very challenging, especially rambunctious Cubby who needed a higher activity home, so she contacted NBGR for help in finding a home where he would be happy.

In August 2016, NBGR was able to find Cubby's perfect happily ever after with a couple in Tucson, where he became the apple of his family's eyes, and the official greeter for the guests at their bed & breakfast. Life has been good for Cubby ever since.

Fast forward to May 2020. By this time DeDe's mother had crossed over the bridge, and DeDe was an only dog living in Iowa with her owner who had since recovered from her illness.

Unfortunately life threw her owner another curve ball with increasing mobility issues requiring her to move to assisted living, so with a heavy heart, once again she turned NBGR for help in finding her beloved DeDe the perfect forever home. During the course of our conversation, we were reminded that DeDe and Cubby were litter mates.

As it turns out, DeDe's foster mom and dad were planning a road trip in their RV to Arizona. NBGR contacted Cubby's adoptive family in Arizona asking if they might be interested in adopting DeDe also. it took but a nano second for them to respond saying they would be thrilled to have DeDe join their family too.

So a few weeks later, DeDe embarked on a cross country road trip with her foster mom and dad to be reunited with her brother Cubby. Even after being separated 4 years, it was as though they had only been separated a few days. This was one very joyful reunion, and their dad's couldn't be happier or more in love with DeDe and Cubby!

Check out the video their dads shared a few weeks ago. DeDe and Cubby are most certainly 2 very happy little Griffs who are very much loved and adored.

DeDe & Cubby together forever! Happy endings just don't get much better than this!
