Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for September 28, 2021


Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for September 28, 2021

On Sunday, October 24, from 2:00 – 5:00 PM, First Lady Marty Kemp will host the third Pet Adoption Day at the Governor’s Mansion. The First Lady will again partner with several humane societies, animal shelters, and pet rescues across the state to help find permanent homes for animals in need.

“We are thrilled to once again host Pet Adoption Day at the Georgia Governor’s Mansion,” said First Lady Marty Kemp. “As First Lady, I’ve worked to promote causes that my family and I care deeply about, and nothing makes us happier than connecting in-need animals with their forever homes. If you’re looking for a special addition to your family, please consider joining us on Sunday, October 24.”

The first two Pet Adoption Days connected 100 dogs, two cats, and one hamster with loving families. Applications are currently open for both guests and adoption groups to sign up to participate in this year’s event.

Aloy is a young, 25-pound, female Beagle and Cattle Dog mix who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Introducing Aloy! This brown-eyed beauty is perfectly medium-sized at 25 pounds and is about a year old. In addition to her soulful eyes, Aloy’s hounddog spirit and sweet demeanor will be sure to win over her forever family! Aloy has been accident-free in both the home and in her crate! Though she does not have a signal for going outside, Aloy gets straight to business on those potty breaks. When it’s time to eat or to be crated, Aloy goes in on command (good girl!). 

Baggins is a young, 25-pound, male Beagle and Cattle Dog mix who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Meet Baggins! This charming little character weighs 25 pounds and is around a year old. Despite the adventure (or misadventures perhaps) it took for Baggins to get here, he’s ready for the adventure of a lifetime — in pursuit of his forever family! Baggins is already house-trained – no accidents! He’s also crate-trained, though sometimes begrudgingly. He needs coaxing in (a tasty treat for example) and sometimes barks or whines if he gets crated during the day and can see you having fun out there without him. That said, he does great in his crate overnight, quickly settling in and keeping his crate clean. Other than working on his “crate” command, Baggins is learning “down,” “leave it,” and “wait,” and has already mastered “sit!” Baggins is submissive around other dogs and is very friendly and playful. He lives with other foster dogs and loves playing with them. He would even make a great dog park dog. 

Kirby is a 10-month old, 75-pound male Treeing Walker Coonhound mix puppy  who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Kirby is a smart guy but he still has lots to learn. His foster mom is working with him diligently on housebreaking, and he will surely learn the ropes in no time. Crate-training is still a work in progress. Though he keeps his crate clean overnight, he thinks being crated during the day is much less fun than being able to play with his foster siblings. With patience and determination, Kirby will surely learn that his crate is a nice and safe place for him to go when his foster parents are busy. In terms of commands, Kirby is very quickly learning “sit” and will be sure to add more to his trick book soon. Kirby loves people and will trot right up to his new friends and ask for pets. He loves receiving pets from his foster mom but is not needy about it. It’s the perfect mix!

Jackie is a year-old, 48-pound, female Beagle and Hound mix who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Introducing Jackie! This pretty hound dog is around a year old and weighs in at 48 pounds. With confirmation that she’s healthy – she’s ready to take on the world (and find her forever home)! Jackie has impressed us all! This girl is already housebroken and crate trained. When she has to potty, Jackie lets her foster mom know by sitting by the door and whining. Because she was initially on crate rest due to her spay, her foster mom was able to see that she’s a well-mannered girl in her kennel – even going in when she sees the door open! She may protest for a bit when she thinks you’re having fun without her, but she eventually settles and behaves just as you’d hope.
