  Meet Gizmo and Felix!
(#3481 and 3482)

Gizmo and Felix are two delightful boys who came in to rescue as owner surrenders. They are a completely bonded pair and will only be placed together.

Here is a cute video of them playing.

Gizmo is red rough and is part griffon and part shih tzu. He weighs 13.5 lbs. and he is a happy go lucky fellow who seems to like everyone he meets – very outgoing – he may jump in your lap right after he meets you! He is turning 9 years old in early January 2018 – but you would never think of him as an older dog when he is running around the yard making sure it is squirrel and chipmunk free.

Felix just turned 8 years old. He is a lovely black and tan griff and he weighs 12.5 lbs. Felix is more shy and reserved than Gizmo but he does warm up pretty quickly and once he decides he likes you he is very attached and wants to be right next to you all the time. He takes a lot of his cues from Gizmo and loves to be out running the yard with Gizmo.

Both these boys are super sweet. They have been loving cuddling on the couch with their foster mom and sleeping in her bed has been a big treat. Their former owners said they were pee pad trained – and they will use the pee pads - but if they are kept on a regular schedule of getting outside frequently they do most of their business outside – although they will probably have a few housebreaking mistakes when they first go to a new home. Their foster mom is working on their leash walking habits and they are doing pretty well although Felix doesn’t like loud noises (like trucks or busses) and can be nervous out walking.

Gizmo and Felix are microchipped, heart worm negative and up to date on vaccines. They take heart worm preventative.

Gizmo and Felix are being fostered in Westport, CT.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki at vboneill@optonline.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.
