  Meet Suki!


National Brussels Griffon Rescue, Inc. is pleased to formally introduce our newest little spit fire in Wichita, Kansas! Suki is a vivacious 8 lb. puppy born in Nov. 2016 who is looking for a fun stay at home, active family with a sense of humor and a zest for life! This impish little rascal doesn't know a stranger and is guaranteed to steal your heart away in a New York minute! If you have an active life style, can be with her most of the day, have a sense of adventure, love to play, and another small playful dog who can keep up with this tiny dynamo, then this hilarious little monkey was made to order just for you!

SUKI WAS BORN WITHOUT A TAIL OR TAIL BONE RESULTING IN PERMANENT INCONTINENCE OF URINE/STOOL, AND IS SHORT A FEW TOES ON HER PAWS, but none of this slows her down in any way, and she is otherwise perfectly healthy destined to live a long happy life with some very fortunate forever family! Suki doesn't mind wearing a diaper indoors, and in fact we think she looks adorable in them!

Watch her videos to see how well she walks on lead:  Video 1   Video 2

SUKI WILL REQUIRE A STAY AT HOME FAMILY OR ONE THAT CAN TAKE HER TO WORK WITH THEM BECAUSE HER DIAPER WILL NEED TO BE CHANGED FREQUENTLY to prevent urine and stool from scalding her skin. She also needs to have her bladder emptied manually several times per day to prevent residual urine from collecting in her bladder which could possibly cause bladder infections. This is easily done as shown in this Video

IN ADDITION SHE WILL NEED TO HAVE A URINALYSIS SEVERAL TIMES EACH YEAR to check for possible bladder infections which can be treated inexpensively with antibiotics.

This adorable little live wire is spayed, UTD on vaccinations, had a recent fecal, is heart worm negative, on monthly heart worm preventative, micro chipped, and ready to start her new life with some lucky family!!!!

Suki is being fostered in Wichita, Kansas.

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.

While 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 drive to where the dog is being fostered or 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. We never ship our rescued Griffs or allow them to fly in the cargo hold.

If you are ready to fall in love, and would like to learn more about Suki, inquiries may be directed to Jan at nbgrtexas@yahoo.com, or submit your Adoption Application ASAP before this adorable little girl is snatched up!

Suki has been Adopted!

NBGR makes fairy tale wishes come true every day for innocent castaways like little Suki who had only one desperate wish she held near and dear to her heart - a family of her very own who would love her forever and ever.

We are happy to announce that wish finally came true just in time for the holidays! Please join us in congratulating Suki, her new forever mom Mary Casper, along with Suki's new siblings Princess, Kookie, Lola, Tiny and NBGR alumni Lizzie!

Because of the unscrupulous breeder for profit who sold her not once, but 3 times in Suki's 1st year of life without telling the new families of Suki's special needs, this sweet little girl's heart was broken in two when each of those families gave her up without understanding why she could not be house broken.

Suki was born without a tail or tail bone resulting in permanent incontinence of urine and stool. Other than that, she is a normal happy active puppy, who is perfectly content wearing a diaper indoors and the type of velcro Griff everyone hopes for.

One would have thought a tiny gorgeous little Griff like Suki would find her happily every after very quickly. Sadly, this was not for the case for Suki and she was headed for even more heart break.

Finally poor little bewildered Suki ended up lost and alone in an animal shelter in southeastern Kansas wondering why no one cared and what she had done wrong.

Luckily a good samaritan found out about her tragic plight, and sent NBGR a picture of a very sad little Suki sitting all alone and abandoned.

We immediately called the shelter, only to learn she was on that day's euthanasia list. Luckily we had an available foster family in the area and rescued her that very day just in the nick of time!.

Before anyone starts bashing the shelter, please know they went above and beyond to help her. They had several vets examine her at a significant cost, including many tests, only to discover the birth defect leaving her forever incontinent with no medical or surgical remedy.

Still they made every attempt to find her a loving home, but no one stepped up to the plate. Because shelters are flooded with unwanted pets continuously on a daily basis, often they have no choice but to euthanize pets who have been passed over in favor of making room for those who will be adopted.

The shelter employees were so very grateful to NBGR - not one of them wanted a sweet innocent healthy happy puppy like Suki to lose her life over something so insignificant as being incontinent - an easy fix by wearing a diaper indoors.

So when NBGR foster mom Nisha Davis arrived at the shelter that very day to bring Suki home, the shelter workers met her in the lobby to express their very heartfelt gratitude!
