Meet Dr. Spock – a male Pit Bull mix who is available for adoption from Friends To The Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc. in Dallas, GA.
Spock was found rummaging through the garbage at a volunteer’s office on Wednesday 11/14/2012. After little food, water, vetting and a crate, he began to settle right in. Spock was approximately 12 to 18 months old at that time. As of 2014, he’s probably about 3 years old. Except for being extremely skinny, he was in very good shape. He has gained weight and filled out into a very handsome, strong boy. He has been neutered, vaccinated, and he is heartworm negative. Spock is looking for his forever home.
Spock has been great with the other dogs he’s has met and regularly plays with adoptables Valentine & LB. He can play a little rough, but he’s starting to be less of a freight train. This guy is extremely intelligent and attentive. He knows ‘sit’ and ‘down’ – he will do absolutely anything for a treat! He should also have no problem hearing you when you call with those silly ears! If you need a dog with big ears, Spock is the one for you!

Officer’s Log, Stardate 2260. I have crash-landed on a strange planet. The inhabitants jailed me upon my arrival in a place called the “shelter.” Then a native aligned with GPRA rescued me. He treated me with the respect deserving an officer of Starfleet, so I went with him. My rough landing left me injured and dirty. This native took me to his Bones, who said I require surgery on my leg and medicine for something called Heartworms. This sounds fearsome, but as long as it’s not the earworm that Chekov endured then I feel certain I can brave it.
In my short 2 years of life, I have survived much. I lost weight during my captivity and am now down to 86 pounds. Still, I maintain my basic love for all beings and my essential sweetness. I need your help to heal again. My surgery and heartworm treatment are costly, but GPRA is committed to doing whatever it takes to make me well. For this, I am grateful, and I ask that you consider donating to help them help me.
Don’t stop there, though. I have grown to love this planetary system and its inhabitants. I would like to learn more, possibly while eating Milk Bones and getting my belly scratched. If you think you can aid my exploration, contact GPRA today!

On Wednesday, March 4, 2015, legislation will be introduced designating an “Official State Dog of Georgia.” Dolly, who is not available for adoption because she has a permanent home, is a supporter. She’s just waiting on her Lobbyist badge to start urging passage of the Official State Dog Act of 2015.
Let us know what kind of dog should be designated the Official State Dog of Georgia, and if you have a picture of yours, share it with us on Twitter using the hastag #officialgadog.
