Adoptable Georgia Dogs for July 1, 2016

Keep your dogs safe on July 4th and all year.

Every July 4th, large numbers of dogs are scared by fireworks and run away. Local shelters will receive many of them, and others might get injured or never return home. The American Kennel Club has a list of precautions you should take before the fireworks begin. And I’ll add a few more tips.

1. The Lost Dogs Georgia Facebook page gets flyers for many lost animals and I’ve seen a number of dogs find their way home through posting there.

2. NextDoor.com for your local neighborhood seems to be where a lot of found dogs get posted in my area.

3. Go ahead and check to make sure that your dog’s microchip registration is up-to-date. You’d be surprised how many microchipped dogs end up in shelters with a notation that the owner’s information from the microchip is not up-to-date.

4. Make sure your dog’s tags are secure, up-to-date, and still legible. We’ve had to replace our dog’s tag when it became illegible.

5. Take a couple pictures of your dog with your smartphone today. That way if something happens, you can post photos online and make flyers without having to search for a good photo.

6. If you have neighbors who are likely to have their own private fireworks, talk to them and make sure you know when they’ll be shooting them off.

Prince Freedom

Prince Freedom is a male Pit Bull Terrier puppy who is available for adoption from Friends of the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, Inc. in Dallas, GA.

Prince loves playing with other dogs, cuddling up to sleep and snore, playing with toys, chewing bones, and swimming in his foster familys pool! Prince does great with all dogs and would probably do best with a dog his size that he can play with. He rides well in the car and is good for baths. He is fully crate-trained, about 75 percent housebroken, and he uses a doggie door. Prince sleeps well in a crate at night and also enjoys sleeping in bed with his foster mom. He was DNA tested and Prince came back as 75 percent American Staffordshire Terrier and 25 percent Mixed Breed Groups. This includes Guard, Asian, and Sporting Groups.

Prince is a great puppy with a fantastic personality. He needs a family that can continue to socialize him, work with him on training, and keeping him active and engaged. Prince will be neutered on June 24th and he will be ready to go into his forever home shortly after that! Get your applications in on this adorable little guy!

Maggie

Maggie is a young female Staffordshire Bull Terrier & Dachshund Mix who is available for adoption in Kennesaw, GA.

Hi, my name is Maggie, and I am a fun, loving, and energetic girl with a lot of love to share! My mom found me wandering the neighborhood when I was about 10 weeks old. I am not sure how I ended up there, but thank goodness she took me in and gave me a great place to be. I am now three years old, and – though my mom loves me very much, my canine sibling and I get on each other’s nerves. I have been evaluated and am not ‘dog-aggressive’ – we just do not mesh, and would likely be happier as ‘only dogs’ that can have all the attention of our human(s).

My mom describes me as “a wonderful dog – very loving and loyal – and stinkin’ cute!” I react to cats much as I do squirrels – thinking they both belong up trees, so – best that I not live with cats! I am an ‘expert snuggler’ and quite the speedster on my little legs! My favorite past times range from sitting near you (or on top of you if you let me – lol) while you watch TV to running in any direction, with no particular destination and for short periods of time. I also enjoy walks and do well on a leash. I just like to stretch my little legs! I also enjoy being outside and lying in the sun – ahhh! I will sit/lay/walk right by your side at all times…. until I see a squirrel! I am mild tempered, housebroken, and crate trained. It has been determined that I am allergic to Purina dog food, so you can ask my mom what foods she has found work best for me. I’m current on vaccinations, spayed and my adoption fee is $195.00.

Please contact Lizzy at [email protected] for more information about me.

Charlie

Charlie is a small, 9-year old male Terrier mix who is available for adoption in Kennesaw, GA.

My name is Charlie, and I’m your new best friend! I have short black hair and don’t shed very much. I am so easy to care for and love to be with my owner. I would be best placed in a mature home without any children or with older, mature children. Since I’m small, I don’t require much exercise, and I love to lounge on the sofa with you all day. I sleep in my crate at night and when you’re away, but would love to share the bed with you. I am potty trained and will sit, lie down, and stay on command. My other likes are chew toys, treats, and car rides. I am updated on all my shots and take my heartworm preventative and a daily pill to help me with my nerves. I tend to be anxious from time to time, but my medicine keeps me happy! I currently live with 2 other dogs and get along with other dogs very well after we’ve gotten acquainted. My current owners love me very much and want me to find a forever home where I can thrive. Energy level: 2-4.

For more information about me and to receive an application to complete, please contact Chelsea McPherson at [email protected]

Brynn

Brynn is a 5-month old Labrador Retriever mix female who is available for adoption from Mostly Mutts in Kennesaw, GA.

I’m a friendly, sweet and smart puppy who loves to play fetch, run around with other doggies and snuggle with my people! In my foster home, I like to run around and play with the water while my person tends to the garden outside, then I’ll go and watch the kids play video games while chewing on a toy! I’m gentle with the 5 year old girl and great with the other dogs as well! I am still a young puppy though, so I’ll need training, including potty training, and lots of attention! I have a good bit of energy for playing and then enjoy napping when we’re done with playtime. You can teach me all sorts of tricks and commands as I’m young and ready to learn!

Polly Pocket

Polly Pocket is a 2-month old female Hound and Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Mostly Mutts in Kennesaw, GA.

I’ve been growing a good bit and being well socialized with kids and dogs of all sizes in my awesome foster home. I haven’t been around any kitties but my foster mom think’s I’d do well with them too. I’m a feisty pup and going through the mouthy stage of life, so have lots of things for me to chew on and start training not to chew on you or the kids so we’ll all be happy.

I love everyone and I love to run and play! I’m doing well using potty pads and am ready to start learning outside potty training now. In my foster home, I love to run around with the adult dogs and when they run close to me, I lay flat on the ground, I’m so silly and sweet! Like all puppies, I’ll require a devoted owner who will take the time to train me so I’ll grow up to be a polite and well-trained adult dog.

Mary Kate

Mary Kate is a young female Jack Russell Terrier and Chihuahua mix who weighs 12 pounds and is available for adoption from HART of McIntosh County (Humane Animal Resource Team) in Darien, GA.

Mary Kate came in with her sister, Ashley, quite scared and shaky. Now, with lots of love and attention, she is a happy little girl looking for her forever home. She still needs plenty of work since she is shy with strangers. Mary Kate is quick to come around though and enjoys sitting in her handlers’ laps. We highly suggest she gets adopted with her sister, but she is young enough to adapt to a life with other dogs. She gets along well with dogs, cats, and children.

Miley

Miley is an 11-month old, 16-pound female Jack Russell Terrier and Hound mix who is available for adoption from HART of McIntosh County (Humane Animal Resource Team) in Darien, GA.

My name is Miley and I’m still quite young and lively. The dog catcher found me wondering around Darien in March 2016. I came to the shelter scared and lonely; I wasn’t too sure what to make of all these other barking dogs! But since the nice humans have taken care of me I’ve really come out of my shell. I guess I just needed someone to reassure me that everything is going to be okay. I get along very well with other dogs and I don’t mind cats all that much. If you want to find my my forever home, please contact the McIntosh County Animal Shelter at 912-437-4242.

Nutter Butter

Nutter Butter is a 4-year old, 63-pound male German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from HART of McIntosh County (Humane Animal Resource Team) in Darien, GA.

I came to HART with my sister Ludiwici We did not have much attention before we came to the shelter. We are somewhat shy, but we are strong. I really need someone with experience in loving and training a dog like me. I need a strong pack leader to help me understand that Humans are my friend. I am very lovable and smart. The shelter staff tell me I will learn easily once I am able to trust.

Michael doesn’t care for the collar around his neck, and will need to walk with a harness.
