Adoptable Georgia Dogs for February 12, 2016

Lollipop

Lollipop is a female Jack Russell Terrier and Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from CARES Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education & Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

Reggie Lab

Reggie is a young male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Animal Rescue Foundation Inc in Milledgeville, GA.

Roxy Doxy

Roxy is a small brindle female Dachshund mix who is available for adoption from Georgia Homeless Pets in Atlanta, GA.

Roxy is a sweet little puppy that’s working on her crate training, potty training and doggie manners. She can sit and lay down and is great with other dogs but wants to play with cats. She’s just a wonderful puppy looking for her forever home.

Jasper

Jasper is an adult male Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from Oconee Regional Humane Society in Greensboro, GA.

Jasper is a perfect dog. He was adopted from us as a puppy and he was raised in a loving home with a good family. Due to a change in circumstances, Jasper now spends 10-12 hours alone every day. His family knows it isn’t fair to him so they’ve asked ORHS to try and find another family to take their boy and give him the time and attention he deserves. Wait until you meet this guy – he’ll steal your heart instantly.

Henry Beagle0212

Henry is a young male Beagle mix who is available for adoption from the National Detector Dog Training Center in Newnan, GA.

Henry is a calmer type dog but can be playful too. He likes people but would probably try to be the boss over smaller children. He gets along with other dogs. He can also be stubborn at times and a person with some dog savvy would probably be best for him.

Dolly Min Pin

Dolly is a young female Miniature Pinscher (Min Pin) mix who is available for adoption from Animal Rescue Foundation Inc in Milledgeville, GA.

I’m Dolly and I am a minpin mix. I am sweet but I am a high energy dog so get ready to have some fun!! Please come and get me.

Bandit Vienna

Bandit is an adult male Great Pyrenees & German Shorthaired Pointer Mix who is available for adoption from Flint Humane Society in Vienna, GA.

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 Winder

Bandit is an adult male Border Collie & Labrador Retriever Mix who is available for adoption from Pup & Cat Co. in Winder,GA.

Bandit is a cute little guy, only guessing his breed of Border Collie/Lab mix and about 30#. He is timid and shy but in no way aggressive because of it and is somewhat bewildered at being relinquished, along with his buddy Bella. He met with an unfortunate turn in his life, his person dying and wife unable to care of him. He has such great potential because of his sweetness and take patience and time will come around quickly to most any situation.

Reynolds

Reynolds is a young male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Orphan Annie Rescue in Atlanta, GA.

Miller

Miller is a male Boxer mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Terrell County in Dawson, GA.

Lila

Lila is a female Jack Russell Terrier mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Terrell County in Dawson, GA. She and her sister Lailey were found as stray puppies searching for food at a dumpster.

Lailey

They were adopted but the family was not spending enough time with them so they returned to us. She looks like a large Jack Russell Terrier.Lila is a sweet, outgoing and playful girl; typical JRT in that she bounces! She would be great for a home that wants an active dog. Lila is great with other dogs and she loves children. She is housebroken, current on shots and spayed.

Wags

Wags is a female Labrador Retriever and Collie mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Terrell County in Dawson, GA.

Wags is one of a litter of 7 puppies that were found under a handicap ramp of an abandonded home when they were only 10 days old. Their mother had been struck and killed by a car; one of our foster homes took the puppies in and bottled fed them and happily, they all survived and have thrived! But, Wags and the gang need a home of their own.

Wags and her brother, Lewis, must be adopted together. Lewis is very attached to Wags, and since they have been together their entire lives, we think it best for both of them to keep them together. If ever there were a dog appropriately named, it is Wags. She is great with other dogs, likes children and is all around sweet girl, her tail never stops wagging, hence her name (she is untested with cats). She would be great for a home that is looking to “balance out their pack”-she seems to have a calming effect on other dogs.

Louis

Louis is the brother of Wags. He is good with all female dogs and some male dogs; he likes children, he is smart and eager to please (he is untested with cats). He is fun loving and just wants to be where ever the people are. He is current on shots, neutered and on heartworm prevention.

Nugget

Nugget is a male Bassador puppy – a Labrador Retriever and Basset Hound mix – who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Terrell County in Dawson, GA.

I love to fetch, run and play! My favorite things to do are: chasing my favorite ball, playing with my stuffed monkey, eating and cuddling.

My foster mom says to tell you that I’m housebroken “if you stay on top of it”. (She swears you’ll understand that even though I don’t.) She says I listen well and that I understand the difference between play time and calm down time. (She is telling the truth! I know what all of that means.)I get along great with the other dogs and cats in my foster home too.

My previous family took me to stay at a nice persons house during recent flooding because they offered to help by keeping me safe. When it was time for my family to pick me up, they refused to come get me. I’m doing great though and I love being at my new foster home. My foster family says I am such a joy to have. My foster mom said I’m an adorable goofball and will be an awesome addition to YOUR home!

Lucky

Lucky is a senior female Labrador Retriever who is available for adoption from the Cobb County Animal Shelter in Marietta, GA.

Lucky is a super sweet and cute girl and even much prettier in person. She is very friendly and sits when told. She does have some skin allergies, but a good diet and medicated baths should take care of that. Lucky was brought to the shelter as an owner turn in on 1/19/2016. She is about 10 years old and 60 lbs.

Lucky’s ID at the shelter is 581719 and she is in run 17. Her run number could change, so please make a note of her ID and ask for assistance if you don’t find her in run 17.

Abigail

If you are looking for a fun companion then this 2 year old, 58 pound girl is for you. She loves to play ball, she knows sit, stay, shake, and lay down on command. She would make an excellent running partner. Abigail has been spayed and tested negative for heart worms and is current on vaccines. She is waiting to meet her new best friend in cage 806 and her ID# is 581756.

Lady

Lady is a senior female Dachshund who is available for adoption from the Cobb County Animal Shelter in Marietta, GA.

Lady is a sweet, sweet 13 year old, 11 pound baby doll. Her family left her at the shelter on 02/03 because they said she did not like small children bothering her any longer. How can she be blamed for that? How sad for her to have a home for 13 years and then dumped in a big, loud and scary shelter. At this point she has not figured out her family is not coming back for her.

Lady is quiet in her cage and is a very loving girl who wants to sit on your lap. The family said she is house trained. Lady is spayed and current on her vaccines. She is hoping not to spend much of her senior years stuck in a cage. She is waiting in cage 327 and her ID# is 581962.

claus1

Claus is a six-week old Male Boston Terrier/American Bulldog mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

A Garden City canine police officer (meaning the dog, not his handler) received a bulletproof vest from a nonprofit that donates the vests called Vested Interest in K9s.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office received two vests for their police dogs, donated by local citizens.

“The final two vests are being ordered thanks to a very generous Forsyth County resident,” the Sheriff’s Department said.

K-9s Edd and Lycan will receive bullet and stab protective vests thanks to a charitable donation from nonprofit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.

The vests are sponsored by Joe Radack, of Cumming, and will be embroidered with the sentiment.

Since its start, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 1,700 protective vests, in 49 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over $1.6 million.

The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age.

The suggested donation to provide one protective vest for law enforcement K9 is $1,050.

Each vest has a value between $1,795 – $2,234 and a five-year warranty, and an average weight of 4-5 pounds.

A couple thousand dollars ($1050 if through the charity) to protect a police dog that can cost upwards of $50,000 seems like a prudent move.
