  Meet Kiko!
(#3439)



National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. is very excited to finally introduce Kiko in Kansas City! Ladies are you ready to be swept off your feet? If so, this dapper little man is everything you've dreamed of and more!

Our very handsome 11 yr. old - 17 lb. lady's man most definitely prefers the company of women, and will probably always prefer the affection of his one and only, however we feel he would eventually adjust to sharing his lady's affections with a man in the house.

Kiko definitely would not be the right match for a family with young children, however as you can see in his pictures, he likes some older children, but not all. Matching Kiko with a family that includes older children would require a meet and greet before a placement decision could be made.

He is leash trained - loves his daily walks, crate trained, 98% house trained, is a very polite car rider, gets along well with other dogs (is friendly with the neighbor's cat), loves squeaky toys, doing zoomies, and would be in heaven if he could share the big bed at night with his favorite lady.

Kiko has come a long way since leaving his sad life behind in a horrific Mississippi puppy mill 7 months ago! Despite his tragic past, this debonair little guy is eagerly looking forward to his brand new happily ever after!

Our little romeo tested positive for heart worms, and recently completed treatment for heart worms. FOR COSMETIC REASONS ONLY, THE BENIGN GROWTH ON HIS HEAD WILL BE REMOVED OCTOBER 10th, then he will be off to the races ready to sweep the special new lady in his life off her feet and ride off into the sunset to begin their very own fairy tail happy ending!

Kiko is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, on monthly heart worm preventative, had a recent dental and blood work up (normal), and is micro chipped.

Here are some cute videos:  Video 1   Video 2

He is being fostered in a private home in the Kansas City metro area.

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.

Please keep in mind that while we prefer to place dogs within reasonable 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 and small enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger, or the family must drive to where the dog is being fostered to adopt. We never ship our rescued Griffs or allow them to fly via the cargo hold.
