Bob Lab Atlanta

Say hello to Bob! He is a lovable, young adult lab/ retriever mix dog ready for his furever home. In his black and white extra large tuxedo coat, he is a handsome guy. When approaching his kennel, Bob is chilling leaning against the door of his cage. He perks up with his body wiggling and tail wagging and so excited for his walk. This big guy has awesome leash manners and great at the sit command. His excitement increases when he eyes his brother, Max, waiting for some sibling brotherly play time in the play yard. After welcome hugs and kisses, the two brothers romp off to play some chase! They even welcomed the canine in the next play yard with a few barks. This sweet boy will need lots of exercise, walks and a weight management program to get him down to a manageable weight. We expect this guy will make a wonderful loyal and loving canine companion. If you have room in your home for this handsome guy, bring your fido and kiddos down to the shelter to have a meet and greet. If you have room in your home for two handsome guys, Bob and Max, these brothers were raised together, lived together for their 2 1/2 years and were brought to us as a pair and to go to their furever homes together, Bob was previously altered.

Max, below, is Bob’s brother and the pair need to be adopted together. The two boys are available for adoption from the Atlanta Humane Society in Alpharetta, Ga.

Max

Bob Boy

Bob Boy is a 2-year old, 75-pound Newfoundland mix. Sweet Bob’s owners moved and left him in the house.

Bob has lots of energy, he is a very happy dog. Bob is very friendly with people, male and female. Would make a great hiking or jogging companion. He is very playful but settles quickly. Bob is a very sweet boy and would make a wonderful addition to any home. No homes with cats though.

Bob Boy is available for adoption from Doggie Harmony in Atlanta, GA.

Bob Jasper

Bob is an adult male Coonhound mix who could be a not-too distant cousin of Dolly, one of the GaPundit.com mascots. Bob is available for adoption from Jasper County Animal Control in Monticello, GA.

Dove2

Dove! She is a Blue Heeler (mother was full blooded) Black Lab (father was aslo full blooded) mix around 7 months old. She was part of a an accidetal litter and unfortunately her mother passed just two days after they were born due to complications with the birth. The whole litter then had to be bottle fed until they were old enough to switch to puppy food. She and her two sisters that were place in homes through the rescue were all adopted but unfortunately Dove was returned because her family no longer wanted her.

Blue Heelers, also known as Cattle Dogs, are a working breed and so are labs (the father in a hunting dog and the mother was a farm dog). This means that Dove really needs a home that will giver her structure and a job to do which could be something as simple as fetching a ball. She would probably do awesome on a farm. Dove wants to please and is very intelligent. Her foster has started teaching her some basic commands such as sit, down, and place to start giving her the structure she needs which she learned all three very fast!

Dove is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Ellie

Ellie is a full-blooded female Treeing Walker Hound. She has been fully vetted and is a sweet sweet girl. She LOVES being with people and is pretty active but enjoys being lazy too. She can jump up to at least 5 ft. but doesn’t not try to jump a fence. If you ever wanted a true hound dog, she is your girl. No squirrel will ever stand a chance. But on her down time, you can find Ellie sunbathing on a lawn chair. Ellie would be an amazing family dog or hunting dog!

Ellie is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Oreo

Oreo, aka Odie, is a very sweet and smart Blue Tick Hound mix. He is just over a year old and fully vetted.

Oreo is house and crate trained. He will need an owner that can show him who is in charge because Oreo is very smart and can be a little bossy. He is a really goofy dog and his personality is something else. He would make a great family dog with a little bit of structure, he often thinks he is not a dog. Oreo loves to run, play, and ride in the car and go places.

Oreo is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Striker

Striker is a very friendly and loving Senior male Plott Hound. You would never guess his age because this boy acts so young. He is currently in a foster home with 4 children and loves to play and cuddle with them. He is good with other dogs and cats since he has both in his foster home with him! Striker just wants to cuddle on the couch and be a love bug for the rest of his days.

Striker is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Hazel

Sweet Hazel is a 9-month old female Plott Hound mix who is searching for her forever home and available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, Ga.

Pansy

Pansy is a sweet, thoughtful Border Collie girl about 5-6 months of age. Pansy loves to play (what puppy doesn’t smile) , but also has a “off” switch and will lay quietly near her person. She is very food motivated and would do well with any type of sport, such as agility or obedience. She has been to see sheep, but doesn’t show any early herding instinct- preferring instead to bark at those big woolies! Pansy is catching on quickly to housetraining, and is crate trained as well. Like most puppies, she does enjoy chewing on things, including hands, so we are working on this, but very young children would not appreciate this fun activity.

Pansy is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, Ga.

Emma

Emma is a beautiful female brindle lab/hound mix. She has taken up a great space in her foster home and they absolutely love having her around!

She is both housebroken and crate trained. She will go right into her crate at night and sleep peacefully without a peep!

Emma absolutely loves to run around outside and chase squirrels! Or just run around! She isn’t hyper but she just really enjoys the exercise and fun. She is super fast too! She listens very well and we think she would be an awesome dog to do agility or training with! She is a big fan of her special treats and peanut butter – but really, who isn’t?

Emma is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, Ga.

Golden Retrievers Imported from Turkey

Adopt A Golden Atlanta has rescued 36 purebred Golden Retrievers from Turkey in what is called the largest-ever  purebred rescue across borders.

Multiple news outlets report the Adopt a Golden organization helped bring 36 purebred golden retrievers from Istanbul, Turkey, to Alpharetta in the largest international golden rescue ever Saturday.

The dogs arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport late Saturday night after a 12-hour flight and seven-hour layover and were taken to Pet Lodge pet resort.

Each dog was abandoned by its owner when the golden retriever, once a status symbol for Turkey, stopped being popular.

The dogs have never heard English and have their own interpreter. They will be available for adoption in early June after an adjustment period.
