  Meet Ricco Suave!

National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc's very own Ricco Suave is a very handsome little guy who most definitely "has it going on"! Our totally cool little macho man has a way of charming the pants off everyone he meets. His good looks, neat appearance, and ability to make the ladies swoon is what every manly Griff dreams he could pull off!

But please do not be fooled by this cool dudes ability to make the ladies flock to him! Our little man is very devoted to the ones he loves and has a heart of gold! His favorite activities are strutting his stuff with his love on daily walks, making her smile, and cuddling all night in the big bed!

Ladies if you are looking for some romance in your life this is the guy for you. And for the guys out there in need of a few pointers in making your love life work for you, Ricco is the man who can show you the way!

Ricco Suave is in the prime of his life at 8 yrs. old, 17 lbs (soon to be 15-16 lbs.), neutered, UTD on vaccinations, heart worm negative, on monthly preventative, had a recent dental, and is micro chipped.

So what are you waiting for? Ricco is the little man who has it all, and he's eager and willing to bring love into your life!

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.

Ricco is being lovingly fostered in a private home near Wichita, KS.

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.

Ricco Suave has been Adopted!

NBGR couldn't be happier for our totally cool little macho man Ricco Suave (now known as Augie). This handsome little boy hit the jack pot big time when he landed in the loving arms of Juli and her husband just before Thanksgiving, and it came as no surprise to us that it was love at first sight!

Not only will Augie be going to work with his mom at the vet clinic every day, but he will be accompanying his mom & dad on family vacations in their RV, and in his spare time chasing Garfield the cat over the back fence....what a guy!

Congratulations Augie! We know you and your new family have many good times and happy years to look forward to together!

We would like to extend a very special thank you to Ricco Suave's foster mom Natasha, who not only very lovingly welcomed him into her heart and home until the perfect forever home could be found for this little man, but picked up Gina & Rosa and Gypsy Rosalee and helped transport them to their foster homes! We can't thank you enough Natasha!

Back for more rescue stories!
