Adoptable Georgia Dogs for December 9, 2013


Lucky is a young male Treeing Walker Coonhound who was rescued from running through traffic, but the family who helped him couldn’t keep him, so he is now available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, Ga.

Sweetums2Sweetums is a young, male Chihuahua/Pug mix who was rescued from Effingham County Animal Shelter and is now available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, Ga.

Sweetums1According to his foster family, he gets along with other dogs. He is such a sweetie and will stay in your lap for as long as you pet him. He wants all the attention and will love you for it. He likes to gather up all the toys and hoard them in his bed. He also sleeps quietly in his crate through the night and is house-trained.

Female Hound Barrow

The senior Coonhound above, who was in our August 13th Adoptable Dogs, was saved from Barrow County Animal Shelter by a GaPundit reader, who wrote to me this weekend:

It was only a miracle she was still there for me, because I had cataract surgery the morning of the 13th and didn’t read your email until the night of the 14th, the day she was to be euthanized. 

When I called on the morning of the 15th, she was still alive, and my daughter and I rushed over there from Roswell. The reason I was in love with her before I met her, was that I’m a retired reading specialist who always used the book, WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS, as literature in my 6th grade classes.  I knew Old Dan and Little Ann as well as if they were real.   

Of course no one wanted this beautiful old girl with her white muzzle and lame leg except someone like me who passes by the healthy ones for those that won’t “make it out alive”.  I named her Little Sugar Ann for the dog in the book and my blind and deaf rescue, Sugar, who passed away last April. 

Lil’ Sug is just as you describe the coonhounds, personable with other dogs and people, energetic outdoors and a couch potato indoors.  Her long silky ears I love to stroke are an extra bonus. 

In spite of her left front leg disability she is ready to go walking early every morning.  She’s been an inspiration to me to get out and get walking also.  The cause of her problem was revealed in an x-ray showing buckshot in her shoulder and a clavicle that was broken and not properly healed. 

She’s under the care of a holistic vet here who prescribed raw food and a supplement for joint mobility.  She has put on weight and looks healthy and beautiful.  Now my other two rescues are eating better as well.

Let me just thank you one more time for helping to bring Little Sugar Ann into my life.  She has already brought me so much love and pure pleasure.
