Hi, I’m Bandit. I am a very good looking dog and I am intelligent, too. I am ready for you to teach me what you want me to know. I am gentle and kind. I love people and other dogs. I have not been around cats. My breed is usually not a cat loving type, but I could be the exception. I am a confident dog and I respond well to positive reinforcement. My shelter staff loves me, but I have not been loved like I need. I am a very affectionate dog. I don’t get to give my love and loyalty back to a family. It is my time. Please take me home with you.

Bandit is available for adoption from the Flint Humane Society in Vienna, GA.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for April 14, 2015

Naomi

Naomi is a pretty white and red female hound/beagle mix with sad eyes. She is a shy but sweet girl that enjoys affection and people. She will take some time to warm up to you, but once you have her trust, she will give you her heart.

She had been abandoned after giving birth to about 8 puppies. A couple pups had already died, and the people who found her could not take care of her and the remaining 6 puppies, so all of them came to us. An adopter should be experienced with dogs and willing to spend time with Naomi at our Pet Center, bonding with her, before she could leave for a new home.

Naomi is available for adoption from CSRA Humane Society in Augusta, Ga.

Halle

Halle is an adult female Labrador Retriever mix who is shy since she wasn’t handled as a puppy. She needs a patient, loving home with experienced dog people who understand her limitations and can be patient as she develops.

Halle is available for adoption from CSRA Humane Society in Augusta, Ga.

Gracie

Gracie is a sweet adult female Shepherd and Labrador Retriever mix female who needs a trusting, loving home. She gets along well with other dogs and loves to go for walks. She was surrendered by her owner who had her from age 3 months. No knowledge if she is good with cats. Please consider giving Gracie her forever home!

Gracie is available for adoption from CSRA Humane Society in Augusta, Ga.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for April 13, 2015

EmmaComp

Emma is a beautiful young 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 does great meeting new people but is hesitant around children. We think her previous family did not do a good job of introducing her to them and they make her nervous. While she is amazingly sweet, she would be happiest in a home with no kids, or older kids. She is also a bit afraid of trucks – especially big ones. But she settles down well if you are petting her and even settles in well once she is in the car. She will just need some more time knowing that they aren’t scary and that lots of time they take you to fun places like pet stores and dog parks!

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

Watson

Watson is a young, tiny Miniature Pinscher mix with some serious ears on him! He is a min pin/Chihuahua mix that weighs about 10 pounds right now…he will top out around 12 or 13 we think.

He is crate trained and will really let you know when he’s ready to be out of there! He is still working on housebreaking. His animal control paperwork indicated that his previous owners trained him to use puppy pads…it is hard for a dog like that to be retrained to go outside, but he’s working on it!

Watson absolutely loves other dogs and will make sure to say hi to every dog he sees! He loves to run around the backyard and explore with them. He would be a great dog to take to the dog parks and is sure to make friends with the dogs and people alike! We have not seen him around cats but it’s possible he would want to play with them – he’s just a happy guy who assumes everyone else is too.

Watson wiggles with excitement when he sees people and has met a few kids as well. He was a little more watchful of the kids than adults so we don’t think he has spent much time with them. He was happy to take treats from them, but mostly just kept his distance. He was never ugly – just watchful. He might do best in a home with dog savvy kids so they can give him some space until he knows them better.

Watson really likes to run around his back yard and stretch his legs, so if he doesn’t live in a house with a fence, he will need some walks each day. He would be a great candidate for training and agility classes! He is basically Tigger in dog form! He loves to be in the middle of everything so it is important that his family wants him in their business!

Watson’s one playful pup! He loves his foster siblings and he loves his toys – especially when the two things are combined! He’s always ready to play and explore so we suspect he’ll prefer an active family to take him out and about and to play with him at any opportunity. He’s a spunky little guy ready for big things.

Watson is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Bernard1

Bernard is a very special boy, an adult male Whippet and Dalmatian mix. He was a foster with Helping Paws Rescue back in 2007-08 and it took a while to find the right home for him because he’s a bit on the shy side. The perfect family came along and adopted him and they were so happy together for the next 6 years. But then, they had a baby join their little family and Bernard, being a nervous guy by nature, was very uncomfortable with the change. They tried for many months trying to make things work, but unfortunately, Bernard was not happy with the turn of events and just couldn’t adjust. So, they brought him back to us to find him a home where he could be happy and comfortable again. It broke their hearts, but they knew it was best for Bernard. Here’s what they had to say about him:

“Bernard is an amazing boy who is loyal, loving and very easy once he settles in. Anyone would be blessed to have him join their family, preferably someone who has consistency in their routine. I would go into an endless rant about how amazing he is but for those willing to break through his shyness, the reward is well worth it. Please help find him a home, he deserves nothing but the best.”

So, now Bernard needs a new home! We believe he’s between 7 and 8 years old, although he still looks like a puppy. His shy nature is still there, so he’s looking for a home where he can be comfortable and relaxed with no young children to make him nervous. Once he loves and trusts you, he REALLY loves you and will want to be by your side forever. He’s still a happy, active guy and would love to go for hikes in the woods or around the neighborhood. If you are interested in making this sweet boy a part of your family, just give us a call to set up a time to meet him!
Bernard is available for adoption from Helping Paws Rescue in Bogart, GA. No word on whether he brings his own box to sleep in.

 Leslie1

Meet Leslie – a young female Whippet and Terrier mix! This girl was surrendered by her owner to Athens Animal Control back in February. I can’t possibly imagine why, though, because this girl is a ball of fun! She’s just over a year old and much smaller than her pictures make her out to be (she only weighs about 22 lbs.). We are guessing she is a whippet/terrier mix, so she has lots of energy and loves to play! She is also a very smart girl who responds very well to mental and physical stimulation.

Leslie’s favorite things are balls, bones, and toys. She is working on playing fetch and trading toys for treats. Leslie LOVES other dogs and is always very excited to meet them. She almost immediately tries to play with them! She is also great around cats, though she can sometimes intimidate them by trying to chase them or play with them.

Leslie loves people and really wants to be loved on, but can sometimes be a little wary of people approaching her. We are working hard on her ability to trust new people and she has been doing really well! Once she meets new people, she immediately warms up to them and wants to give them kisses.She also has many tricks up her sleeve, such as sit, down, shake, “say please”, and “stick ‘em up!”. Leslie learns very quickly and is very food-motivated and therefore, easy to train! She will be starting a 6 week training class, where she will be learning even more fun tricks!!Leslie is such a sweet girl and would fit in well almost anywhere. She has lots of energy so she would need a home that could exercise her adequately, both physically and mentally. She also needs some structure and boundaries in her life to keep her a happy girl! She has infinite amounts of love for anyone who earns her trust and is so easy to fall in love with! Come see her today!!

Leslie is available for adoption from Helping Paws Rescue in Bogart, GA.

MrMax
Mr. Max is a 2.5 year old English Mastiff (possibly mixed) who weighs in at 135 pounds. His owner died, he’s bereft, and he needs a new home and family to love. Here’s Max’s story:

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue

“MY DADDY JUST DIED AND NOW I NEED A HOME!
ENGLISH MASTIFF NEEDS A SECOND CHANCE!

“My world was just turned upside down. My daddy had just left this world unexpectedly and now I am told there is no one here for me. I am mourning so badly. I can’t stop my head from spinning. My body won’t stop shaking and my heart feels like it is about to fall out on to the ground. Where is he? Where did my daddy go? Wasn’t I suppose to go before him? How do I care for myself?

I miss him so much. I was his buddy and he was mine. I would do anything for him and he would do anything for me but now he isn’t here. My daddy is gone. My home is gone. My life is in pieces.

My name is Mr. Max and I am a 2.5 year old English Mastiff (maybe mix). I am a big 135lb. boy with an even BIGGER heart. I embody everything that an English Mastiff is. I am a true gentle giant. I love everyone. I am BEYOND sweet. I am loyal, gentle, calm, sensitive, soulful. I do well with dogs AND cats. I am also potty trained. I slept in my daddy’s room every night. I don’t chew on anything that I am not suppose to. I am “kinda lazy” (what can I say- my kind tends to be) and sadly now… I must find a new home.

I want my daddy to rest in peace and not worry about me. I know he must be crying for me as he is looking down. I am sure he wish he had a will for me. He was just not old yet and I guess he didn’t think his time would come so soon. I pray for his comfort. I pray someone will let me in. I just need some time to mourn. I need some time to heal. Us, English Mastiffs are such a great kind of folk that many people who own us can tell you how special we are. Once you are owned by an EM, you will always be owned by one. In fact, they say we are like potato chips and it is hard to just have one! The angels want to help me. They just need someone to open up their heart and home for me…will you??

** Foster must be in the ATLANTA area. If so, please fill out a foster application at www.angelsrescue.org/foster
OR ADOPT ME!!!

With a person who will continue to help her learn, she will be the best! She tends to be a bit stubborn, but then in understanding what breeds she is, we could not expect anything else!!!
