If this guy doesn’t get adopted over the weekend, he’ll headline the morning news email on Monday, but I thought I’d put him up here for now and see if we can’t get him a home. He is currently available for adoption at the Cherokee County Humane Society after first doing a stint behind bars at the Cobb County Animal Shelter. He came in as a stray and has neither been claimed nor adopted.
George has had some medical issues, but with good veterinary care, it appears he’s getting over his problems. He is six years old, weighs sixty-six pounds, and would like nothing better than to watch football games on television from a comfy dog bed (or sofa) in his new home.
According to his guardians, George is a typical laid back lazy boy. He loves getting his belly rubbed! He loves loves loves his squeaky toys! He is crate and housetrained. He seems fine with other dogs and oblivious to the cats but suspect George would be quite happy as an only child and the center of attention. He may get a tad fussy about having his face messed with but we suspect that has more to do with discomfort of his eyes. Since we do not know his history, a home without small children is what he seeks!! George is neutered, heartworm tested negative ( yay) and microchipped!
George has also racked up about $700 in vet bills, which the Humane Society is asking for help in paying. If you’re unable to adopt George, you might wish to donate online in honor of your favorite football team, or your favorite team’s nemesis.
Like most rescue’s the Cherokee County Humane Society also needs volunteers and foster homes.
