Howard likes to cuddle, build forts with pillows, and be next to his person. He gets along well with women, men, and big kids (10+). He enjoys having a doggie companion and comes out of his shell to play with other pups. Howard would do best in a home with someone who could be there to cuddle with most of the day. He’s not a huge fan of walks, so would be a great apartment or small home dog. Please contact Maria at [email protected] for more information or an adoption application.
Howard has had a sad life. Howard spent the first year or more of his life on a chain with very little human interaction. When his rescuers found him, they were trying to catch some puppies that had been dumped behind his house. The puppy was curled up with Howard sleeping. Howard was so upset when they took his friend. It took a few weeks but they eventually talked the owner into releasing Howard to rescue.

Hi, I’m Lucy! They tell me I’m an adorable little Bassett hound puppy with the looks of a beautiful Black Mouth Cur. I like to play with the kids in my foster home and cuddling on the couch is wonderful too. My very favorite is belly rubs! I know we don’t speak the same language, but I do my very best to let you know I need to go potty. My foster mom says she is so proud of me for having no accidents in my kennel at night. I have these adorable little feet and short legs that don’t move very fast but I do my very best to keep up while walking on a leash. I enjoy the company of everyone that I meet so I’m super excited to meet my forever family. I just know that my family is going to be extra special and give me lots of belly rubs. Could that be you?
Cindy Wiemann, Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division assistant manager received an award for her work.
The assistant manager of the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division recently received the Southeastern Animal Control Association’s highest honor.
Cindy Wiemann has been awarded the President’s Award from the group, which strives to improve the skills, knowledge, abilities and image of animal care and control work in the southeast.
“I’m really humbled by this award,” she said. “It means a lot coming from my peers. They know what we do and what we go through. They’re your toughest critics.”
But Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement Manager Curt Harrell said he wasn’t surprised his assistant manager had won regional recognition.
“I have wise council. She’s my go-to person,” he said. “She’s very knowledgeable about shelter management and intake.”
Hi, my name is Sam. My Foster Mom often calls me “Sam I am.” I am about 2 years old and am around 50 pounds. My foster mommy taught me how to be crate trained. I like to chew on my toys and do best with harder kong-type toys for chewers. I like it best when I am around my people, but am not necessarily a lap pup. I like big yards.
Sometimes I bark when I’m in my crate, so my best scenario would be with someone who has a doggie door and a fenced back yard that can help train me to their lifestyle but I am getting better. I guess I just love my humans and want to be with them all the time! I sometimes have a slight limp because I had an old injury that healed wrong. The vet says I am ok but may limp occasionally. I’m a pretty great guy all together and am a great car rider!
Sam was an owner surrender. An older couple adopted him but did not realize how active a 6 month old pup would be. He is very playful with other dogs and sweet as can be with people. He would be great for a home with kids or another active dog.
Samuel is sweet, super socialized, and unique! ORHS doesn’t think he will be too big once we are full grown. He would be a perfect, spunky additions to any dog lover’s home! Come say hello! I may be your new best friend!
This cute little boy is one of 5 siblings. He has 1 sister and 3 brothers. As of October 5th, 2017 Samwel weighs 11 pounds
