Meet Gruff

Name: Gruff
Age: 7 years old
Gender: Male
Location: Houston, TX
Adoption Fee: $350

Gruff is a 7 year old Chinese Crested mix. He was found as a stray so we aren't sure of his breed. He could be pure bred or a mix. Either way, he is a handsome boy!

Gruff would do best as an only dog with a parent that is home often. Gruff becomes very attached to his person or people and wants to be with them as much as possible. He will sit by the door or look out of the window until you return. He loves people!

Gruff likes to play with other dogs but he doesn't quite understand social signs and can often take playing too far. He attempts to steal food from other bowls which can result in a fight. And let me tell you, Gruff is a scrappy one. I feel like he had do defend himself quite often while he lived on the streets. He does NOT like big dogs. Again, I feel like he had to defend hisself and most likely a big dog was the aggressor. For these reasons, we are looking for an only dog home for Gruff. We would possibly consider one other dog in the family with complete understanding of Gruff's behavior.

Please note that our transport options are very limited. If you are chose to adopt Gruff, please plan on traveling to Houston, TX to pick him up.

Also note that emails asking if he's available will not receive a response. If this listing is still showing, he is still available.
