  Meet Gina & Rosa!
(#3414 & #3413)

We are excited to announce the recent arrival of Gina & Rosa in Springfield, Missouri! This gorgeous mother-daughter duo are sure to melt your heart away in a New York minute!

Gina (black rough) is the more out going of the two, and likes to give little butterfly kisses. Rosa (red rough) is a very sweet, demure little lady who will quickly have you wrapped around her little paw! They get along great with other dogs, happily greet their foster family as they walk in the door, love snuggling, and sleeping in the big bed at night.

Gina & Rosa are looking for an adult only home where they will be totally spoiled and pampered. In return they will shower their lucky new family with a love and devotion you might not have ever thought possible!

Both girls are healthy and totally loving life! Gina is Rosa's daughter. She weighs 12 lbs. and is 8 yrs. old. Rosa weighs 13 lbs., and is 9 yrs. old. Both are slightly over weight, and are working hard to get down to a perfect weight of 10-11 lbs.

They are great little car riders, leash trained, and so far have had no accidents indoors as long as they are able to go outside every few hours.

Gina & Rosa are spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm negative, micro chipped.

We never place dogs in homes reliant on electric or invisible fencing to contain pets. Fencing of this type may or may not keep a dog in the yard, nor does this type of fencing protect pets from predators, free roaming dogs, or people who may enter the yard. Should there be a power outage, the fence would be rendered useless. If a pet were to panic and run through the barrier and take an electrical jolt from the fence, that pet would not be inclined to return home, and could be lost forever.

Gina & Rosa are being lovingly fostered in a private home in Springfield, MO.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Jan at nbgrtexas@yahoo.com.

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.

Gina & Rosa have been Adopted!

Please join National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. in congratulating John, Gina & Rosa! This is one happily ever after story that will remain in our hearts forever!

NBGR has shared many happy ending stories over the years, but this happy ending story is particularly special to us, not only because Gina & Rosa are now sharing their life with a man who will love and treasure them forever, but because these 2 sweet girls have in turn come to John's rescue after recently losing his wife to cancer, then one by one losing their beloved 2 Griffs to old age.

About this same time, Gina & Rosa came into rescue bewildered and wondering what the future might hold for them also. Then one day John stumbled across NBGR's website, saw Gina & Rosa's pictures, read their story, and the rest is history.

This is truly a match made in heaven! Together John, Gina & Rosa have come to each other's rescue!

NBGR would like to extend a special thanks to Gina & Rosa's foster mom, Angie Kelly-Schooler (pictured with Gina & Rosa), for lovingly caring for these 2 adorable girls until we were able to match them up with John! We simply could not continue helping Griffs in need without our amazing network of foster families!

Back for more rescue stories!
