Adoptable Dogs for February 16, 2016

King Mastiff

King is a 5-year old male Mastiff who is available for adoption from The Bullpen Way Station and Sanctuary in Norwood, GA.

King is just big ol’ sweetheart of love looking for the right family. He is everything a mastiff is supposed to be… gentle, fun-loving and family oriented. His only desire is to hang out by your side. Disregard the premature grey in his muzzle, this boy is in his prime. 5 yrs old and runs around like a pup one minute but will be back at your side with the snap of your fingers. It just kills me that my boy doesn’t have a family because of something that may never happen.

A boy with special needs, King has a heart condition that the vet said could end his stay here on earth at any time… or he could live to see a ripe old age. Whatever King’s future, we don’t want to see this big hunk of love not get to live a full life surrounded by a family of his own.

King loves other dogs and hanging with his best doggy buddies.

Are you the special person that can give King the life he deserves?

King Pibble

King is an adult male Pit Bull Terrier (pronounced “Pibble”) who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Statesboro & Bulloch County in Statesboro, GA.

King is certainly a beautiful boy. He is enjoying a second chance with the Humane Society of Statesboro and Bulloch County. He is vet examined, fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Give King a look and you will be glad you did!

Tut

Tut is an adult male German Shepherd Dog & Husky Mix who is available for adoption through a private home in Metro Atlanta. He was posted by
German Shepherd Dog Rescue Group of Georgia Inc. as a courtesy to help him find a home, though the rescue doesn’t have custody of him, nor have they assessed him.

Tut is a sweet and calm dog who enjoys human companionship, according to his owner. He is a brown and white male GSD mixed with husky, about 7 years old. His owner adopted Tut when he was younger, but the adopter had a lifestyle change, and had to return him. His owner can not afford to keep him permanently, but can keep him until a new home is found.

Tut gets along with kids ,dogs and cats. He is up to date on shots and vet care and is neutered. He has tested slightly positive for Heartworms, but the vet says that he can be treated by giving the regular preventive monthly, he does not require the usual treatment.

Tut will need a moderately active home where he can get a few leash walks a day or play in a yard. He’s over the puppy phase, and would like to relax with people. He is housebroken, and knows basic commands.

Almost Official (State Dog)

Today, the Georgia House of Representatives will debate the passage of House Bill 561 by State Rep. Joe Wilkinson (R-Sandy Springs), which will designate the Official State Dog of Georgia as being “any adoptable dog.” From a story last year on the bill’s introduction,

State Representative Joe Wilkinson (R-Atlanta), along with officials from the Atlanta Humane Society, FixGeorgiaPets.org, GaPundit.com, and Georgia English Bulldog Rescue, held a press conference on Wednesday, March 4, to discuss legislation that would designate the official state dog of Georgia. Rep. Wilkinson’s legislation, House Bill 561, was officially in the House on Thursday and names “the adoptable dog” as the official state dog of Georgia.

“Georgia was founded by James Oglethorpe and became a place where people could go for a second chance at life,” said Rep. Wilkinson. “So, it is fitting that we recognize the importance of giving homeless dogs a second chance at life in this state.”

“Having something like this come before the state of Georgia will heighten awareness for shelters and for adoption being an option, “said Tara High, Vice President of Operations for the Atlanta Humane Society.

Rubye Reid with FixGeorgiaPets.org highlighted the importance of spaying and neutering pets to prevent pet overpopulation in Georgia shelters.

“Dogs live longer happier lives when they’re spayed, and ensuring that adopted dogs are spayed or neutered helps reduce the number of pets in shelters,” said Reid.

Ruthann Phillips, Director of Georgia English Bulldog Rescue, noted that the organization currently has nearly 40 foster bulldogs in private homes in Atlanta.

“Every dog and cat deserves a home, and every home needs a dog or cat,” said Phillips.

We look forward to the bill’s passage, and to seeing it come up for a hearing in the Senate. We have a team of adoptable English Bulldogs from Georgia English Bulldog Rescue on call for a committee meeting.
