Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for November 16, 2017

Dellis

Dellis is a male Coonhound mix who is available for adoption from Little Nuggets Rescue in Snellville, GA.

Hello – my name is Dellis. Would you like to have a happy go lucky kinda guy added to your family? Well, that’s me! I’m the sweetest baby. My foster mom taught me to sit. I’m very well mannered. If you have a lake, can I come swim? I love to run and jump in the water. My foster mom thinks I’m part duck! I’ve been with my foster mom since I was a puppy (rescued from a high kill shelter). Please give me a forever home. I’ll give you lots of kisses!

Lady Bird

Lady Bird is a female Jack Russell Terrier & Beagle mix who is available for adoption from Little Nuggets Rescue in Snellville, GA.

Lady Bird is such a sweet baby. Full of energy. Loves to give kisses. She gets along great with MALE dogs only. Pulled from the shelter pregnant. She had 3 very large puppies which almost killed her giving birth. Only two survived. She has that JRT attitude, but the Beagle bark. She is crate trained. Lady bird will NOT do well with children. She is independent and relishes being left alone until she wants a hug. She is food agressive. If you have the time to work with her, she will make a great companion.

Mickey Nugget

Mickey is a small male Dachshund mix who is available for adoption from Little Nuggets Rescue in Snellville, GA.

Mickey is a little nut. Gets along with other dogs. Loves to be hugged. Paper trained and crate trained. Will need an apartment or a home with a privacy fence as he can climb a chain link fence. Estimated age 7 years.

We’d offer treats and belly rubs to three Georgia Court of Appeals judges, but that might be beneath the dignity of their office. From the Fulton Daily Report:

The fact that a dog bites someone doesn’t necessarily prove the owner is to blame, the Georgia Court of Appeals has ruled.

A panel of three—at least two of whom admitted to being dog owners during oral arguments and one of whom has a dog with a Twitter following—reversed a trial court judge and said the case should go to a jury.

“After he was bitten on the hand by a dog, John Ogden filed suit against the dog’s owner, Katie Myers. Ogden filed a motion for partial summary judgment on the issue of negligence per se, which the trial court granted,” Judge Tripp Self wrote in a Nov. 3 opinion. “Finding that an issue of fact exists as to whether the dog was carelessly managed under OCGA § 51-2-7 at the time of the incident, we reverse the order of the trial court.” Presiding Judge Billy Ray and Chief Judge Stephen Dillard (known dog owners) concurred. They reversed Fulton County State Court Judge John Mather.

Merritt recalled that Dillard and Ray mentioned their own pets and asked him in oral arguments, “How could a dog owner ever win?”

To be clear, the appellate judges are not saying the dog was not at fault for the bite. They’re just saying the dog deserves a day in court. The case is Myers v. Ogden, No. A17A1779.

Jake Dirt Road

Jake is a young male Golden Retriever & Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, INC in Gillsville, GA.

Hi, I’m Jake! I’m a sweet, tender hearted boy who’s waiting for the love of my life to come along. I know I’ve got a little skin problem right now because I was starving & neglected when the wonderful humans at DRDR saved me. But, I’ve been told not to let that bother me because I’m taking medicine to fix that! Once it clears up, I’m gonna be a really good looking guy!  

I’m a little smaller than my brothers but my foster mommy thinks it’s just because I’m more submissive than they are. I’ve been learning how to walk on a leash. At first, I was like “NO WAY!” but I’ve got the hang of it now & I walk on a leash like a boss! I’ve also been crate training & I’m proud to say, I haven’t had one single accident! I got this!

With all of these exciting changes in my life, there’s just one thing missing. You. I promise, you won’t be disappointed!

Love, Jake.

FernACR

Fern is a young female Labrador Retriever and Golden Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Fern is a beautiful Black Lab/Golden Retriever mix and weighs a whopping 80lbs. Yep, she’s a big one! But that’s all the more dog to love! Don’t worry, she’s about where she should be seeing as how she is almost 2 years old.

Playing with other dogs is Fern’s idea of a fabulous time. Regular dog park trips are a great way to let out her energy and she doesn’t require structured introductions.

Fern is a good, even-keeled pup who isn’t bossy with other 4-legged friends, but also not a completely submissive roll-over-on-the-floor or lick-your-face-all-the-time dog. She’s definitely confident at the dog park, but if a dog puts up a stink, she’d rather take no part in that. So she’d basically do fine in any home, pup or not, old or young, though, for your sanity, younger and more playful is a better match :) Rain doesn’t stop Fern from having a fabulous time – she’ll dance around in it like nobody’s business and she does her business in it without complaint. The only thing that seems to scare her so far is the vacuum. But no one in her household is a fan of that!

Jeb

Jeb is a young male Coonhound mix who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

As soon as Jeb entered the interaction pen, he ran for the first toy he spied and began tossing it in the air. He’s a happy, playful boy! He’s also quite handsome though he’s a little thin right now, and I could feel his backbone and ribs when I petted him. I imagine he’ll add a few pounds quickly; he certainly enjoys treats. Jeb has the sweetest face that goes right along with his personality.

DixieACR

Dixie is a female Treeing Walker Coonhound who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Meet Dixie! This beautiful Treeing Walker Coonhound is about 50lbs and is right where she should be. At only a year old, she still has some learning to do but is just crazy friendly to her doggy roommates!

Dixie has several 4-legged roomies and LOVES playing! She tends to leave her much smaller housemates alone and gives all of the other dogs their space if they don’t want to play, so she’s proving to be able to pick up on cues and be respectful. Soft introductions to other dogs aren’t necessary and Dixie does very well at the dog park. When other pups aren’t joining into the fun and she really, really wants them to, that’s when you hear that bay howl!!

DaisyFOSACobb

Daisy is a 7-year old female Labrador Retriever who is available for adoption from Cobb County Animal Shelter in Marietta, GA.

aisy was dropped off at the shelter on 10/31 because her owners did not have a proper fence to keep her contained. Just look at her smile, maybe she knows her luck is about to change and she will find a home that will let her live inside with the rest of the family and not stuck outside alone all the time. Daisy knows to sit when told and is gentle on a leash. The former family said she is good with kids.
