Rally came to NBGR from a kill shelter in Georgia. He was due to be euthanized the next day when a wonderful volunteer picked him up for us. Poor Rally had been found as a stray. He was absolutely covered in ticks. After all the ticks were gone and he had settled down a little he was neutered and blood work was done. At that point we realized that poor Rally had anaplasmosis – a tick born disease. Rally is a perfect gentleman. He went through so much with his illness from the tick infestation and the subsequent removal of his left eye, and yet he remains loving and playful. He seems unaffected by the loss of his eye – his other eye is in perfect condition and he sees fine and continues to love life as he had before his eye was removed.
Rally has made a complete recovery now. He is house trained. He is crate trained and his foster mom crates him when she is out and he is fine. He loves to go walking. Great on leash. He sleeps in the bed with his foster mom at night. She says he is a perfect guy.
Rally is big for a griffon – he weighs about 25 lbs. We think he is probably about 6 years old. He is neutered, microchipped heart worm negative. Rally takes heart worm preventative.
Rally is being fostered in Dublin, GA.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

Just as cute as ever!
