Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for August 25, 2017

Raisin

Raisin is a young female Beagle mix who is available for adoption from Heart of Georgia Humane Society in Macon, GA.

Raisin is a shy little beagle who enjoys hanging out near you but not directly touching you. She thrives on the friendship of other dogs, and requires that her new family have another dog to be her friend. She is a typical beagle in that she can find a scent and follow it forever, so a secure fenced yard is required for potty time. Her adoption fee is $150. She’s about 1 year old.

Snuggles

Snuggles is a sweet female English Bulldog & Yellow Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Heart of Georgia Humane Society in Macon, GA.

Snuggles is a low key easy going 2 year old English bulldog/lab mix. Snuggles would do best as the only dog in the home but could possibly live with another dog given enough space. She loves her people and is an easy dog to live with.

Huffy

Huffy is a female Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Heart of Georgia Humane Society in Macon, GA.

Huffy is good with anything and everything. She’s quiet and calm enough for an apartment but she also enjoys playing outside. She likes to cuddle in bed with you. She gets along fine with other dogs, cats and kids. She is about 6 years old. She’s spayed, up to date on shots and heartworm negative.

Coweta County Animal Control is offering free adoptions to reduce overcrowding.

For a limited time, any animal that has been at the shelter over 60 days can be adopted free of charge. At the time of adoption, animals are spayed or neutered, and receive dewormer and their first round of shots. They are also examined by a vet and receive a microchip that contains their information if they are ever lost.

Animals that have been at the shelter less than 60 days can be adopted for 50 percent off the standard adoption fee. With the discount, the adoption fee is $35 for cats and $63 for dogs.

The shelter will be open extended hours this Saturday. Normal hours are 9 a.m.-1 p.m, with adoptions from 10 a.m.-noon. This Saturday, the shelter will be open until 2 p.m.

Wallie

Wallie is a 9-year old male Brittany Spaniel who is available for adoption from the National Brittany Rescue & Adoption Network in Greenville, GA.

Hi! Wallie here.

I am a 9 year old who found myself taken to a shelter because my owner was going to college and decided she didn’t need me anymore. Thank goodness the wonderful people at NBRAN found out about me and picked me up!

I am very healthy, in fact I’m a little bit over weight. I’m UTD on my vaccines, HW negative and super friendly. I am good with other dogs and cats are an unknown. When I was at the vet for my check up they found out I have a very mild form of something called Laryngeal Paralysis. My foster mom says it is barely noticeable now that I am happy at her house. Because of this it has been recommended that I be adopted in a Northern cooler climate to keep me healthy.

I am such an amazing boy and will make a great companion, don’t let my age fool you. I love to play and hunt the laser pointer as long as you will play with me. Did you say squeaky ball? I have one and it is my favorite toy! Car rides?? Oh Yes Please!!! Did I mention I am house trained, walk well on a leash, sit for treats, and don’t jump on the furniture. I am a submissive boy and when bedtime comes I am happy to sleep in my bed on the floor next to you in your bed. Do I have any negative issues? Yes, just one sadly. I have some mild toy aggression, but my foster mom is working on it. Please don’t let that be a deal breaker though. One last thing, the children in the neighbor just love me, so I guess that means I am good with children also.

Skid

Skid is a 4-year old, 32-pound male Basset Hound mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Harris County in Hamilton, GA.

I am definitely a scent hound which means my nose rules! I will follow it anywhere even if it gets me in to trouble. Last July I followed my nose right into the path of an oncoming car. That was a very painful experience! It caused something called a ‘fractured pelvis.’ It has healed up nicely and I do really well with walking, running and jumping but I will need to be on joint supplements for life to help me stay active.

My foster mom says I have an awesome personality. I love people and like it best when I can always be with my humans. I really like other dogs! I don’t live with cats, but I find the one at my vet’s office fascinating! I am crate trained, but still working on my housebreaking. My foster mom says I am very smart! I love my foster mom and foster siblings, but I really need a forever home hopefully with another doggie sibling or siblings to play with and a human family I can love forever and ever!

Kanga

Kanga is a female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Harris County in Hamilton, GA.

Zeus

Zeus is a male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Harris County in Hamilton, GA.

Mack and Mojo2

Mack and Mojo are seven-year old, 110 pound (each) male Great Pyrenees/Saint Bernard mixes who are in urgent need of foster or forever homes. From Desperate Dogs on Facebook:

Mack and Mojo’s elderly Papa is dying of cancer….he is fading away fast…. and their mama is very sick too. She can no longer care for herself or their beloved dogs any more.

A loving family member, Susan Tanner, is helping her to take care of herself while she prepares for the loss of her beloved husband and has also been tirelessly working to find a new home for these dogs so that Papa can leave his family knowing that everything is taken care of. He is so worried that his wife cannot cope with the dogs, and knows it would break her heart if she had to take them to the shelter as a last resort.

It honestly doesn’t get any more sobering than this, does it?

This is not just about finding the perfect forever home for these dogs, its about giving a dying man his wish to see his family in good hands, his elderly wife with less worries on her shoulders and giving a sweet soul who is trying to carry some of their burden, a helping hand.

If you can help, or know anyone who can, please call Susan Tanner on 404 4526319 as soon as you can.

Susan has reached out to many rescues and so far has had no luck at all, so we are trying to get these dogs a home so that Mama and Papa can rest easy knowing they are safe.
