Griggs had a pretty good life. For around 13 years, he lived with a human mom that loved and took good care of him. He ended up in boarding at his veterinarian when his human mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She has passed away and Griggs has no other family to take him in.
Placing Paws Rescue has stepped up to help this dog and they’ve found out they have a wonderful fur-kid just waiting to move in with a family. Griggs is a Puggle (Pug/Beagle mix) who is spunky and just full of personality. He loves people, is good with other dogs and cats and has a wonderful disposition despite losing his home.
He’s been described as quite the character and his tail is wagging most of the time. You’d never know he’s 13 ½ years old the way he plays and loves interacting with the world. After years of being a faithful dog and losing a great pet mom, he deserves to live out his golden years with a forever family. Learn how to adopt him on the Placing Paws Website.
