Review for National Brussels Griffon Rescue Incorporated, Dallas, TX, USA
11 years ago I rescued a 3 month old puppy from NBGCR. THAT PUPPY IS THE LOVE OF MY LIFE. His name is “Shepzel “ Sheppy “ and he was fostered from 3 weeks of age with his mother and 2 brothers by a local Griffon breeder. He had such loving care until he was ready to be adopted at 3 months of age.
I applied for adoption of Sheppy ( my name) with NBGCR and was fortunate after a thorough evaluation, I was approved to adopt this tiny boy. The Foster Mom said that Sheppy was the most intelligent pup she ever saw.
Sheppy was smarter than imagined. He knew to retrieve his toys by name at 4 months. He was an AKC Star Puppy, AKC Canine Good Citizen and an AKC Novice Agility Jumper. Sheppy’s greatest achievement was becoming a complex rated Pet Partner Therapy Dog at age one.
As a Pet Partner for 10 years, Sheppy is a member of the UCLA People Animal Connection Team (PAC). He visits hospitalized patients. He is a “Read With Me” Pet Partnerst local schools and Libraries and is supporting families in the UCLA NODA (No One Dies Alone) Program.
Above all, My Rescue Sheppy rescued me and so many others. He has made the world a better place.
