Found Dachshund

This female Dachshund was found running loose along Haynes Bridge Road in Alpharetta, Georgia yesterday by a Good Samaritan. He was checked for a microchip and doesn’t have one. The person who found her said she was terrified and because of that, she took her home overnight rather than taking her to a shelter. If you recognize this dog, please help her get home. Because of the jean jacket, I wonder if someone should ask Sen. David Perdue if he’s missing a dog.

Suwanee Animal Hospital

This black lab (white spot on chest) was found at Peachtree Park in Suwanee and is staying with a local vet until it’s home can be found. If you recognize the dog, please call Rosa at 770-316-6286.

We don’t get anything if you use that Amazon link above, we just thought it would be convenient.

Pilgrim

Pilgrim is a Clumber Spaniel mix, a beautiful big boy with long wavy hair. He was found in deplorable condition and was so malnourished that his front paw turned under when he walked. He wore a brace and was nourished back to health. He had major hair loss and was afraid of everyone and everything. He has come a long way and is looking for his new forever home and family. Pilgrim would do best in a country setting with plenty of room to run and play.; He loves to fetch and will make a great lifelong companion to the right home. If interested in meeting Pilgrim please contact Samantha at (706) 871-8273. or e-mail for a pre-adoption application. [email protected]

Lightning

Lightning is a a one and a half year old Whippet/Labrador Retriever mix who has already been neutered. He is an awesome boy who loves attention and he’s looking and anxiously waiting for his very own home and family. Lightning would make the perfect companion and running partner for a runner or active person who loves the outdoors. He is scared of thunder and lightning and quickly retreats to his “safe place” when he hears the first rumble. (But so do I) He is a beautiful brindle with red, brown and white in his coloring. He’s short haired and sheds very little. If you would like to meet our Lightning please contact his foster for a pre-adopt application at [email protected] Our boy has waited long enough and says: “I’m a good boy and I would love to be your best friend!’

Lightning is available for adoption from Girard LifeSaver in Girard, GA.
Trail

Trail is a little Papillon/Chihuahua mix who was found at a church in the middle of nowhere with lots of trails through the woods. There were owls and coyotes in the woods that night. He weighs only four lbs. and was so frightened. Trail has now become a well adjusted little guy and gets along with all the dogs and cats here but he DOES have “Little Man Syndrome”. He thinks he is as big as a Rottweiler or pit bull and does not hesitate to show it to the larger dogs! For this reason, we are searching for the perfect environment and home for little Trail Blazer. We would like for him to have a home knowledgeable of small breeds and how easily they can get hurt by larger dogs especially when he decides to show his little attitude toward them. Preferably a home with another small female would be ideal or as an only dog.

Trail is available for adoption from Girard LifeSaver in Girard, GA.

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.
