Adoptable Georgia Dogs for February 8, 2016


Adoptable Georgia Dogs for February 8, 2016


Boomer is an adult male Beagle who is available for adoption from Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption Inc. in Smyrna, GA.

Boomer has a tender heart that he is hoping someone will take the time to treat it gently. This adorable guy has found himself homeless when his owner no longer wanted him. He found himself confused and overwhelmed his first day at the adoption center. He has started to settle in and is now waiting patiently for his special home. He does well with other dogs and would most likely do best in a home with another canine companion. He walks well on leash and is very bright and motivated.

He loves learning new things, especially if there are treats involved! His ideal home will be loving, patient and not have any young children. When he gets excited you can even hear him do a “Beagle Bay.” If you are a giving, kind and generous person who is searching for a new family member, come see if Boomer is the right fit for you.

Henry Beagle

Henry is a 5-year old, 28-pound male Beagle who is available for adoption from Forgotten Paws Pet Rescue in Acworth, GA.

Henry is the sweetest and strangest beagle I have ever met. Sweet because he has a happy wiggle butt, loves everyone and just wants to lay close. He spends half his life belly up snoozing and also flips over for belly rubs constantly. Strange because he refuses to take food from my hands. I truly think he was in a home with kids once and got in trouble for taking food from them. I have never seen a dog tuck his head submissive,y when you try to give him steak! He ended up at Henry county animal control as a stray so we don’t know his history.

Henry is housebroken and goes in his crate on command. He likes bones but won’t chew on them if people or other dogs are around. He is learning to walk on leash. He is so submissive it just will take some time for him to build his confidence.


Leia is a young Beagle and Hound mix female who is available for adoption from Gwinnett Humane Society in Lawrenceville, GA.

Hi! My name is Leia! I am a very sweet girl that was lost on a busy highway. Luckily a good Samaritan rescued me before I was hurt. I am now spayed and up to date on vaccines. I am good with other dogs and LOVE people. They think I’m around 2 years old and crate trained. Did I mention I am very sweet?!

DeKalb k9 Tomi Conyers K9 Eddie

K-9 Eddie is a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois who joined Conyers Police Department with handler Officer Myra Scruggs just over one year ago.  Eddie’s official job description is Narcotic Detection and Tracking.  Eddie’s tracking efforts are specifically used for lost children, Alzheimer’s patients and anyone “at risk”.  Due to Eddie’s personable disposition, this type of tracking was later added to his extensive training.

K-9 Tomi is a 23 month old German Shepherd from Deutschland, Germany [who works with the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office]. K-9 Tomi is out of the Southern Coast K-9 School out of New Smyrna Beach, Florida ran by Bill Heiser. K-9 Tomi is a dual purpose dog and trained in narcotics, apprehension, and tracking.

“Sadly, three K-9s have been killed in the line of duty already this year while attempting to apprehend suspects, said Kim Lucas, Public Information Officer for the Conyers Police Department.  “We’d love to get the message out there about this non-profit that protects our K-9’s.”
