  Meet Griffy!

Griffy is one happy little woman! She is truly a Paws of Winter dog that would be so happy to have a home with individual attention. She would be thrilled to have individual time from a owner….someone who would spoil her. She deserves this kind of attention while she walks down her winter path.

Griffy has been in foster care since 2012 and she is close to 13 now. The walk down the path is getting shorter. She is happy in her current home, but she shares it with a number of other dogs. We believe she would love to be in a home that would give her very special attention for the rest of her life even if it is only for a short time, Griffy deserves that home and she is a good girl who has waited patiently for someone to fall in love with her.

Her owners surrendered her to a Sacramento-area shelter because they were no longer able to care for her. Her eyes are clear and her teeth are in good condition. When Griffy came to rescue she weighed over 30 pounds, but her weight is down to normal now, thanks to a great diet and exercise regimen put in place by her foster mom. She is happy, housebroken, and now able to play.

She enjoys tummy rubs and has great inside manners. Even though she is an older gal, she is very lively and energetic. She loves running around in the grass, and her tail is always wagging. When she is excited, her tail wagging makes her entire body wiggle!

She is looking for a home where she can get a lot of attention and can go on walks to keep her girlish figure. She loves just about everyone, and is good with other dogs.

Here is a cute video of Griffy.

Griffy is spayed and heartworm negative and being fostered in the Sacramento, CA area.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

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.
