Ebony was found starving in a parking lot with her brother Onyx (below). We later found out Ebony was one of five pups that were dumped from a van on a deserted road when they were only 4 months old. 3 siblings were captured by animal control but Ebony and her brother Onyx somehow escaped and had to fend for themselves for over a week. Both were very emaciated and dehydrated. Ebony had to stay overnight at the vet office with a high fever due to infection from a wound she had on her neck. She is such a sweet and fun but energetic girl who loves attention. We are not sure how Ebony would get along with cats or other dogs or small children. She seems to have a prey drive with small dogs so she may be best as an only pet. She is currently living with her brother Onyx. With some TLC and obedience training we feel they both will be wonderful pets with a family willing to put the time and effort into them.
Charlotte Rose, aka Charlie, is a big fun loving girl who came to Street Paws from Henry County Animal Control. She was held in animal control for 7 months prior to her foster family selecting her to start a new life. The family was surprised how she maintained her happy and playful personality during the uncertain and stressful conditions at the shelter. She was underweight with a lot of ticks, but has since filled out and has a beautiful soft coat.
Charlotte is housebroken and crate trained, although she is currently free to roam the house when her foster family is gone. She walks well on a leash, and has learned a lot of commands, such as sit, down, stay, shake, as well as take it and leave it for treats and toys. She is very treat and praise driven and can learn a lot more! She loves to play fetch and go for walks, but really Charlotte just wants to be around her people. She will follow you around the house or yard and is always ready for a good ear scratch or belly rub.
Charlotte is definitely a people-dog, but with proper introduction, gets along good with other dogs as well. She still has a puppy mentality when it comes to dog-socialization, so any new dog will have to be understanding and patient with her energy and eager barks to meet. She is great with kids, her foster home has a 3 year old, and she is extremely patient with him and is excited to interact with him as much as with the adults. She in untested with cats, but her size and playfulness may be intimidating to any feline housemates.
