Adoptable Georgia Dogs for October 21, 2014

Ansabelle

Annabelle is a young female flat-coated border collie mix, nicely sized to fit in a comfy chair as pictured.  Her foster family has several children and she is great with them.  Annabelle has lots of puppy energy and loves a good toy.  Border collies are said to be “able to change speed and direction with great agility and is an intense worker. Constantly alert and energetic, the Border Collie thrives with a job to complete and needs lots of exercise. They are also well known for having excellent Frisbee-catching skills.”  The good people of Country Pet Rescue in Monroe, GA are taking care of Annabelle until her forever family comes along.

Ivy

Ivy is a senior female Viszla mix from our beloved Dixie Dog Rescue in Lawrenceville. She’s a sweet senior girl who’s a great family dog. Pawnation.com describes viszlas as “versatile and suited for field, forest or water. Highly trainable, this lively and affectionate dog requires daily exercise and makes an excellent family pet.” She is in the care of Dixie Dog Rescue in Lawrenceville, GA.

Big Ben

Big Ben is a gorgeous chocolate lab/Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix. His foster mom reports that he’s a sweetheart who’s energetic and patient in equal measure. Pawnation.com says the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is “…used to facing harsh winds and long, cold swims, this canine still maintains a happy disposition. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever has a protective and affectionate nature and is best suited for an active family. The breed also enjoys close proximity to water.”

Big Ben is in the care of Labrador Friends of the South, Inc. in Cumming, GA.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for October 16, 2014

Roscoe1

Roscoe is a 4-year old, 83-pound Bloodhound/Great Dane mix male whose owner turned him in. The shelter staff loves this boy! He instantly grabbed our hearts. He’s a gentle giant lumbering around, standing right at your thigh so you can rub his long, soft ears! His owner said he’s a Dane/Bloodhound mix and has been a great dog. Roscoe is available for adoption from the Walton County Animal Shelter.

Roscoe2

Lily

Lily is a 4-year old, 50-pound boxer or pit bull mix female.  Lily was “adopted” from a friend who could no longer keep her. They tried to bring Lily in but their current dog was jealous and wouldn’t tolerate Lily.

Her previous owner said she may not be good with smaller animals, but is fine with other dogs her size. She is very sweet with people; she sits, shakes, is great on the leash and is housebroken! “Lily” did fine interacting with a larger male dog in our shelter. She was submissive and allowed sniffing. She was wagging her tail and showed no signs of aggression or growling. Lily is available for adoption from the Walton County Animal Shelter, where she is urgent and may be euthanized for space.

Lily2

 

Casper

Casper is a one-year old, 55-pound male yellow lab mix who was found stray. He’s very friendly and knows how to sit on command. Casper is available for adoption from the Walton County Animal Shelter.

Loki was taken to a local veterinarian after he was hit by a car and no one has claimed him. Forgotten Paws Rescue has stepped up to help Loki, but they need money to cover his veterinary expenses.

To help with his vet expenses, you can donate via Facebook (look for the donate button under the cover photo) or visit Forgotten Paws’ website and donate online.

Cecily

Cecily is a 4-year old, 58-pound Lab mix who has entropion, which means her eyelashes turn inward, and she needs corrective surgery and a new home. If she doesn’t have a foster or adoptive home by Friday at 5 PM she will be euthanized. Cecily is friendly and gets along with other dogs, and she is available for foster or adoption from DeKalb County Animal Services.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for October 14, 2014

Winnie Lab Mix
Winnie is a female Yellow Lab/German Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Terrell County in Dawson, GA.

Winnie is one of a family of dogs that was rescued by one of our foster homes from an elderly woman whose kids were using her home to sell drugs. Despite their auspicious beginnings, Winnie and her family are very sweet, good dogs-it is a true testament that most canines can live in the moment and over come most anything with a little TLC. She looks like a small yellow lab mixed with a little shepherd/weighs around 30-35 pounds.

Winnie loves all people and is great with kids but she can be a bit bossy with other dogs (she either needs to be an only dog or go to a home with another submissive dog that will allow her to be in charge). Winnie is active and likes to play-she is outgoing and just all around fun loving. Winnie absolutely adores to play fetch-she will retrieve as many times as you want to throw a tennis ball to her-she is a great dog and will be a great pet in the right home.

Tigger
Tigger is a young male Plott Hound and Lab mix who is available for adoption from Special Touch Animal Rescue in Ellijay, GA.

Tigger is absolutely beautiful, with his chiseled facial features and deep orange brindle stripes, looks like tiger stripes. He got his name partly for his tiger stripes but also because he reminds me of the character Tigger in Winnie the poo stories in that he bounced around when he first came. Tigger has a strong lean body and he is only around 1 year. I think he would be a good hiking, lake dog, probably could do agility trials. He is very affectionate, and would be a great addition to your family.

Kanga1

Kanga (above and below) is a little female Beagle/Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from Companion Animal Rescue Inc. in Madison, GA.

She has been fostered in a busy, active family with lots of kids, other dogs and cats, neighbor kids and anyone else that wants to come and play! Kanga is crate trained, house trained and has some great puppy manners and basic obedience skills.

Kanga2

Roo

Roo is a young female Cattle Dog & Labrador Retriever Mix who is available for adoption from Heart of Georgia Humane Society in Macon, GA.

She has the most adorable ears and knub tail and can jump around like a little kangaroo when she’s excited. She is about 5 months old and will probably be 40 lbs or less full grown.

Sebastian

Sebastian is a large American Bulldog or Terrier mix, but I just like the google-eyed look on his face in this photo. He came to DeKalb County Animal Services at 35 pounds, emaciated, and part of an animal cruelty case. He’s now a healthy 70-pounder who is friendly and sweet. Because of his size and looks, he needs a new home very soon or he may be euthanized.
