Teddy is a gorgeous 16 weeks old fella and as precious as can be! He is about 18.5 pounds and we feel he will be a medium sized dog. He loves to play with toys, run with his litter mates and thrives on attention.
He is smart, walks well on a leash and is crate trained. Teddy also already knows sit and paw (shake) and is working on down and housetraining. He is currently interviewing applicants for the position of parents…his wish list includes a fenced yard for play time, lots of toys, a nice bed in the house to sleep and parents who will spoil him. Teddy gets along well with dogs and should be fine with cats since introduced so young.
Ginger is a red Patterdale Terrier who looks like a mix of terrier and hound because of her small size but long legs that make her resemble a baby deer and enable her to run very fast. Ginger has a very playful and charming personality, and she gets along with other dogs.

DeKalb County Animal Services opened a new facility in Chamblee.
The new $10 million shelter is located at 3280 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd., Chamblee, GA 30341, near the DeKalb Peachtree Airport. Occupying more than five acres, the building can hold more than 400 animals and is home to a new surgery room, lab area, clinic, 12 adoption rooms and several play yards.
“This shelter has been a long time coming,” Commissioner Kathie Gannon said. “Working on an animal shelter has been one of my goals throughout all my years [on the commission]. It takes a lot of work and funding, but when we do it, we do it right.”
“When I was first elected, the first people who wanted to meet with me were the Animal Advisory Board,” Commissioner Nancy Jester said.
Gannon echoed that sentiment, saying that “the people in the red shirts [on the Animal Advisory Board] came to every meeting we had, and eventually even started holding their own press conferences.”
Now, stray cats and dogs will have not only a home, but also a “sanctuary” in DeKalb County.
You can support the dogs and cats at DeKalb Animal Services by shopping their Amazon wish list.

The shelter at Macon-Bibb County Animal Welfare is full and they desperately need foster or adoptive homes for dogs and cats immediately.
