Wylie is an incredibly friendly boy! He came into rescue in the nick of time - he was scheduled to be euthanized at a high kill shelter, but thanks to a kind shelter worker, he was brought to NBGR on the same day he was supposed to have been put down. The shelter deemed him unadoptable because he had kennel cough.
After a lengthy stay in the hospital quarantine unit, he is in a loving foster home where he is thriving! His foster family raves about what a good boy Wylie is. His foster mom actually described him as the perfect dog, and says he is "the dog you think of when you dream of owning a dog." He is easy-going, and seems to understand what is going on around him.
Wylie's foster mom has been working with him on basic commands. She reports that he is very smart and food-driven. He has already learned "sit," "back," and "stay." He is a fast learner and will likely be a very trainable dog for his adoptive family.
When Wylie isn't wowing his foster family with his obedience skills, or playing with the family or their dogs, he loves to be in a lap, snuggled up right next to a person, or curled up right at someone's feet. He enjoys car rides, and loves to go on walks. He is good on his leash, but might get excited as he curiously sniffs his surroundings.
Wylie is doing great with his housetraining, rarely has accidents, and knows how to use the doggy door. However, he may backslide for a few days when he goes to his new home.
We think Wylie is around 2-years-old, and we also believe he may be a Brussels Griffon mix. Wylie is neutered and up-to-date on vaccines. He is micro-chipped and heart worm negative.
Wylie is being fostered in Los Angeles, CA.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Crystal 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.
