Adoptable Georgia Dogs for January 30, 2015

Rami

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rami is a Dachshund/Pit bull mix who has become so internet famous that the Moultrie-Colquitt County Humane Society has been fielding applications to adopt him. His videos are hilarious.

Nat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nat is said to be a four-month old Pit Bull mix, though he looks to me like a Lab mix. He gets along with everybody, but needs some leash training. Nat is available for adoption from Moultrie-Colquitt County Humane Society.

Astor

 

 

Astor is a beautiful 2-year old female Hound mix, a real sweetheart who hugs and kisses people. She walks well on a leash and is available for adoption from Moultrie-Colquitt County Humane Society.

Honor Sentinels and the Bainbridge-Decatur County Humane Society will collaborate to train shelter dogs as service animals for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or traumatic brain injuries, according to the Bainbridge Post-Searchlight.

Each day, 22 veterans take their own lives in 48 states. The figures are not kept by California or Texas, both large population states, which would undoubtedly raise the figures even higher if they kept track.

West said it is their goal to provide service dogs to the local veterans who may be suffering from the symptoms of panic attacks, anxiety, depression, flashbacks, agoraphobia, irritability, associated with PTSD.

West said that while Congress is currently studying the effects a service dog has on a vet, it has been documented that a dog serves as a good companion, going with the Vet wherever he or she goes, giving comfort and ease from anxiety.

They plan to supply the dogs free from our local shelter, which took in 1938 stray dogs last year. Once training begins, the dogs cannot return to the shelter, so the group is looking for a building to house the dogs during training until such time as the veteran is able to adopt them. Plans are to work with four veteran/dog teams at a time.

Goose

Goose, above and below, is a deaf, 1-2 year old English Bulldog who was abandoned at a kennel. Here’s his story:

I love other dogs and even do well with cats and kids! I am looking for an active home where they can continue my training. I do all the Bulldog tricks like snore, fart, and stick out my tongue. Everyone tells me I might be an Old English Bulldog, but I just think I’m fantastic! I have some bad habits like jumping at the leash and biting it, but these are all things you can work with a trainer on. In fact, a trainer has offered a free lesson to whoever adopts me! I am very snuggly and love my people. I am looking for a great family that will have the time and dedication to deal with my deafness and energy. Email [email protected] for more info one me!

Goose is available for adoption from Animal Action Rescue in Clarkston, GA.

Deeogee

DeeOGee is super handsome 2 year old male English Bulldog/Mastiff mix who is very sweet and playful. If you like big loveable dogs , then this is the boy for you. DeeOGee is available for adoption from Fulton County Animal Services in Atlanta, Ga.

Buffy

Buffy the Heartworm Slayer is a young female English Bulldog mix, and one of the most happy, affectionate dogs you will ever met. She loves everyone she meets. She has this great big fierce bark, then when someone comes to the door, all she wants to do is jump up on the newcomer to smell and get loves. She’s super snuggly, and will climb on your lap (yes, all 45 lbs of her) for tummy rubs all day long. She’s great with other dogs. She likes being the center of attention, and loves it when her foster mom has lots of friends over, so she can be a social butterfly. She’s great on the leash and will make you meet new friends because she wants to say hello to everyone you pass – people and dogs!

Buffy would be great with older kids, but maybe not little ones as she doesn’t know her size! She has been treated for heartworms and is good to go – what a trooper! She should be the mascot of the Life is Good company, always grinning and loving life. She is a joy and is ready for her forever home!

Buffy is available for adoption from Rescue Me Georgia Inc in Dunwoody, GA; for more info on Buffy please take the first step by submitting an adoption application on www.rescuemega.org and we will follow up.

Nadia

Nadia is a sweet little 35-pound Black Lab mix, about nine months old and scheduled to be euthanized at the Barrow County Animal Shelter tomorrow, Wednesday, January 28th. She loves people and if you’d like to save her life, please have your paperwork in to Barrow County Animal Shelter by 4 PM today.

This week saw State Rep. Carolyn Hugley (D-Columbus) introduce legislation to name the Gray Fox the Official State Mammal of Georgia. You will also be seeing legislation this session to designate an Official State Dog. What kind do you think it should be?

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for January 26, 2015

Buddy Hound

Buddy is a young male Hound/Shepherd mix who is exactly what his name implies – a great buddy! He LOVES people. Buddy has been in a wonderful foster home, and has been introduced to several other dogs and did beautifully with all of them. He chases squirrels and cats outdoors, but interestingly he virtually ignored the cat in a home where he spent a recent weekend.

He’s been working on his leash walking skills, and is making good progress. He does get excited when he sees another animal! Buddy has a lot of energy and needs regular exercise – at least two walks/runs a day.

Buddy’s people skills are excellent – he goes to work with his foster mom nearly everyday and has become the official greeter at her office! It’s been a wonderful socialization opportunity for him.

Buddy will be a wonderful companion. We feel a home without small children is best simply due to his size and exuberance, but an experienced owner with children would be considered. Buddy is available for adoption from Two Tailz K9 ResQ in Roswell, GA.

Doug

Doug is a typically playful lab pup who loves nothing more than his ball. He has high energy who would be best placed with an active family. He gets along with most dogs but can be protective of his ball. Otherwise he plays well with four legged friends when no ball is involved. Doug does great with adults and kids! He also has plenty of character and goofiness as most labs are! he is a bundle of fun and provides plenty of laughter. Doug is available for adoption from Two Tailz K9 ResQ Roswell,GA.

Zachary

Zachary is an adult male Labrador/Terrier mix, the sweetest boy you could ever find. He loves attention and gets along with everyone! His favorite activity is prancing around with a toy in his mouth seeking your attention. After being in flux for several years he has found a loving foster home but desperately needs a permanent home. If you are looking for a sweet, low maintenance loving boy Zach is the dog for you! Please call David Butler @404-597-7948. Zachary is available for adoption from Second Chance Animal Rescue & Adoptions in Roswell,GA.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for January 23, 2015

Today is Boxer (mix) day at GaPundit.com in honor of several of Dolly’s favorite play buddies who are Boxers. What stands out to me as someone who is not an expert in the breed is that they seem to always want to play and I’ve never seen a Boxer have any problems with other dogs. Of course, any dog is an individual, but that seems to be part of their makeup. Part of what makes them great playmates for Dolly is that they love to run and tussle, and I suspect they’re best for an active family or owner who can ensure they get plenty of play and exercise.

A brief look through the shelters shows me that they look to be a frequent component in randomly-bred dogs that end up in shelters will little hope of being adopted. I also suspect that when Boxer mixes have a broad snout it often leads to their being labeled as “Pit Bulls,” further decreasing their chances of making it out of the shelter alive.

Bingo

I love the look of this dog – she looks sweet and affectionate. Bingo is such a sweet girl! An adult female Boxer mix, she is a little shy at first, but she warms up quickly. She seems like a very calm and gentle dog who would make an absolutely wonderful pet. Bingo is available for adoption from DeKalb County Animal Shelter in Decatur, Ga.

Roxanne

Roxanne is an adult female Boxer mix who is available for adoption from the DeKalb County Animal Shelter in Decatur, Ga.

Rosie

Rosie is an adult female Boxer mix who is available for adoption from the DeKalb County Animal Shelter in Decatur, GA.

Baloo

Baloo, a Black-and-Tan Coonhound mix, was so-named after the bear on Jungle book, is just as sweet and goofy as his name sake. He came back to us and was very lost and confused about how his world had changed. It took him about a week to realize he was still loved and safe. Now he is a happy, goofy, fun-loving boy. It so fun to watch this gangly boy run and play.

He came to us as a puppy, born to a black and tan bloodhound mother. He is now about 4 years old. Baloo does very well with other dogs. He is mild mannered and a big sweet heart. He currently weighs about 85lbs, but we think he needs a few pounds added on. Baloo is available for adoption from Lake Lanier Humane League in Gainesville, GA.
