Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for January 16, 2018

A volunteer at Animal Ark in Columbus, Georgia made headlines when she created a Tinder profile for Henry, an adoptable dog.

Meet Henry – a lean 48-pound Coonhound mix housed at Animal Ark Rescue in Columbus.

He’s an active pup who loves to snuggle, give kisses, and play. Henry has been at Animal Ark for three years after being rescued from the pound.

“I was like, hmmm, how do I meet Henry some people in their 20’s and 30’s… TINDER,” Miranda Morrison said, the Canine Enrichment Coordinator at Animal Ark.

Miranda Morrison set up Henry’s profile using some killer pick-up lines.

“Hello Human, my name is Henry, but you can call me good boy, You look quite fetching, Netflix and nuzzles,” Morrison posted in the Tinder profile.

“I thought it would be funny. I remember from my younger, swiping days, I’m happily married now, from my younger days I was on it, and I think I once matched with something like Pizza, so I was like it pizza can have a profile, a dog can have a profile too,” Morrison said.

Henry’s profile was published on Dec. 29 and it has received more than 20 matches since then.

Animal Ark is a nono-kill shelter that allows potential adopters to take the dogs on dates for a few hours at a time.

Miranda Lambert is asking fans to donate to FurKids, a dog and cat shelter, ahead of her show at Gwinnett County’s Infinite Energy Center.

Lambert, who is set to perform at the Infinite Energy Arena on Saturday, is asking Georgians to help Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters by donating cat and dog supplies as part of her “Fill the Little Red Wagon” initiative, a campaign that asks for donations to local animal shelters.

Furkids, a nonprofit that is headquartered in Atlanta, operates the largest cage-free, no-kill shelter in the Southeast for rescued cats and a no-kill shelter for dogs, making it Lambert’s Georgia pick.

“The Little Red Wagon was overflowing and then some,” said Lambert of her previous tour stops across the country. “I thank my fans, the volunteers, the communities and the shelters for their tireless efforts and for how much they care about what I love, which is the mutts.”

While Lambert said she hopes the prospect of helping a homeless pet is motivation enough, she, along with entertainment company Live Nation, will be hosting a meet-and-greet for a randomly-selected fan who donates to Furkids.

Because the Little Red Wagon will be set up outside the concert arena at Infinite Energy Arena, donors are not required to have a ticket to the Saturday event.

You can also donate to FurKids online.

Cole Dirt Road

Cole is an adult male Treeing Walker Coonhound who is available for adoption from Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, INC in Gillsville, GA.

Cole acts and appears to be a pure-bred Walker Treeing Coonhound. He has been an absolute joy to have around the house with his loving and laid back nature. He gets along great with other dogs and family members. He has not been tested off leash with cats, but he knows when the cat has been nearby and looks for him.

Be advised he has been trained to hunt and will become very intense when he gets on a scent and will want to follow it. For this reason, Cole, will be best suited for a family with a large backyard and a tall fence and does not plan to leave Cole unattended for long periods of time. Cole would be fine being the only dog in a family as he loves attention and the comforts of being indoors.

He has escaped once from his foster family but was easy to find by following his distinct bay. He was found at the base of a tree patiently waiting for his foster family, with his prey hoping we would get him and move along quickly. Cole is approximately 3 years old, altered, crate trained, micro-chipped, approximately 70 lbs. and up to date on all shots, but is heartworm positive. He begins his treatment soon and should be ready for adoption around the end of May or early June.

Houdini Dirt Road

Houdini is a male American Bulldog & Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, INC in Gillsville, GA.

Hello there! I am a strong, 67 pound, fun-loving, 4 year old American Bulldog who loves car rides, leash walking and pleasing my human! I like to dance for my food and give really big kisses! I love couches and belly scratches and I even like bath time! I don’t like to be left alone in the yard, by myself, because I miss my humans so much, I’ll do anything to be with them. I’m really great at digging… by the way! I do enjoy being in my cozy crate when my humans have to leave. My foster mommy says I can’t be around cats, rabbits, or farm animals. And, small dogs remind me of the aforementioned so I probably shouldn’t have a little dog as a sibling.. especially of the bossy variety. But, I do like dogs that are more my size… especially if they love to wrestle like I do!

I really just want a family of my own so I can give hugs and kisses and make them happy! It makes me happy when my humans are happy! And, my smiles are contagious! You definitely need to meet me.. I’m a really cool guy!

Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for January 5, 2018

Bulldogs are the most popular breed in Georgia this weekend, and many are surprised to learn that some are available for adoption through rescue groups. If you have your heart set on adopting an English Bulldog, please educate yourself on the breed’s unique needs and frequent medical issues. Georgia English Bulldog Rescue is the state’s premier organization for unwanted or abandoned bulldogs, and they’ll help you decide if you’re prepared to care for an English Bulldog.

Drake

Drake is a three-year old male English Bulldog who is available for adoption from Georgia English Bulldog Rescue.

Tubs

Tubs is a male English Bulldog mix who is available for adoption from Angels Among Us Rescue in Alpharetta, GA.

My names is Tubs, but I’m not Tubby. I am a rather svelte Bulldog, made of pure muscle and face wrinkles.

I am three years old and I am a fun guy that likes to play. Because I’m a bulldog I play kind of rough, and so I am not a dog for kids. I’m more of a dog for dudes (or dude-ettes).

I get along great with other dogs. My current best friend is a golden retriever.

I have good house manners. I like my crate and will put myself to bed there when I am tired. I’m not a barker, but I do snort and snore like a champ. I like to have a dog bed in the living room to watch TV. I’m not allowed on the sofa in our house – but if you wanted I could be an excellent sofa dog.

I am a good car rider and leash walker. I’d like a forever friend who takes me places.

I need a forever person who understands Bulldogs. I am sweet but stubborn. I need my forever person to be more stubborn than me. If my person is a strong leader, then I am an excellent follower.

Persia

Persia is a seven-year old female English Bulldog who is available for adoption from Angels Among Us Rescue in Alpharetta, GA.

Persia is looking for more than a Football Buddy- she is looking to score a touchdown with a new forever home. She is a good girl; just needs the right playing field. Persia is a 7-year-old, 50 pound English Bulldog. Persia responds to the name Nola. She is working on house training. She likes submissive dogs with a very slow introduction; Persia has an alpha dog personality. She loves belly rubs, treats, and cuddles. Persia needs to be in a home with no small children. She does have skin and eye issues that will need care. Needs eye drops twice a day for the rest of her life. She does best on a grain free diet with weekly baths. Persia does get some irritation in her skin folds on her face- these need to be kept dry and clean. Persia wants to know if you are up for the draft for her Fantasy Football- she wants to be on your team!

StitenCPR

Stiten is a female Norfolk Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Hi! My name is Stiten (affectionately called Foxy by my foster as I look like a fox!) I’m still a little confused about my surroundings but am slowly coming out of my shell. I get along well with other dogs (not sure about cats) and am crate trained and housebroken. I’m very quiet and don’t bark much! I would love to find a person/family to spend the rest of my life snuggling with!

Toast CPR

Toast is a female Pointer mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Toast is very tentative but a sweet, gentle dog. Scared of loud noises, fast moves, and high energy dogs, she is submissive to people and dogs, seems to be good with cats.

When she came into her foster home she was scared of coming into the house, and had no skills such as sit. We believe she was left outside and had no training. Toast and her foster family are working on confidence, and basic manners as sit and not jumping on people.
