Wallkill, NY – Superstar Griffey hopes to find his forever home for the holidays! Griffey was rescued from the shelter and is so thankful to be alive!
He was a volunteer favorite during his stay at the shelter, and with good reason. Here is what a shelter volunteer wrote of him: I don’t know if Griffey was named for the Seattle Mariners Hall of Famer Ken Griffey, Jr., but I do know that Griffey has been placed in my personal Hall of Fame.
What a great dog! Breathtaking in his gorgeous rust color coat, he’s super quiet in his kennel, goes potty the moment we’re outside and has lovely leash manners, sniffing all the good scents on our way to the park. A bit camera-shy it’s hard to capture a good photo of Griffey, so you’ll need to come see for yourself, or just take my word for it. His tail wags when I pet him, and after he warms up to me he loves to crawl on my lap, or that part of him that will fit, and give me sweet kisses. Griffey didn’t like either of my treats, will sit with a light tap on his tusch, and is so quiet, calm and easy that I wish I could have spent the entire afternoon with him.
A quiet listener, a charming companion, he will make you feel like there is no one on the planet more important than you. Come meet my Hall of Famer and make him yours.
He is further described by his adoring foster mom as a gentleman who enjoys the company of people and other dogs. He loves to give hugs and kisses, and is well behaved when left home alone! He does have a lot of energy, so he would do well with an active family.
Griffey is neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped! Thank you for caring about a dog in need!
