Adoptable Georgia Dogs for December 8, 2015

The video is from an earlier contingent of Turkey Dogs, but the newest group of rescued Golden Retrievers from Turkey has arrived in Atlanta.

Over 100 golden retrievers have been rescued from Turkey and brought to Georgia by the group Adopt a Golden Atlanta.

Turkish rescuer Yasemin Baban said golden retrievers were fashionable gifts in the country, but when puppies grew into big, barking dogs, thousands of families set them loose.

“They would be abandoned with broken legs. This is terrible because they don’t want to pay the vet, or they feel like the toy is broken,” she said.

Baban helped round up the dogs from the streets and forests in Istanbul, and packed their crates for the long plane trip to Atlanta.

Adopt a Golden welcomed 29 new dogs at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Sunday night. They all have holiday names like Sugar Cookie, Elf and Frosty.

Because most of the dogs arrive with few medical conditions, Adopt a Golden said it costs about the same or less than it does to rescue local strays.

Thoroughly vetted and not a terrorist terrier among them. You can make an online donation to Adopt A Golden Atlanta and Operation Turkey Dog.

While the newest Turkey Dogs are not yet ready for adoption, here are some beautiful Golden Retrievers who are looking for a new home for the holidays.

AGA Jake

Jake is a 2-year old English Cream-colored Golden Retriever originally from Maryland who is available for adoption from Adopt A Golden Atlanta. If you can believe it, Jake was put in a cardboard box and dropped off at a shelter.

I like strong toys because I can chew up the soft ones in no time. My favorite is one you can put treats in like peanut butter or some pudding called yogurt. I also love an occasional banana. Yum!

Rosie TD
Rosie is a 7-year old female Golden Retriever, originally from Turkey, who is available for adoption from Adopt A Golden Atlanta.

>Rosie is friendly and loves attention once she gets to know you. Her favorite thing in the world is swimming and she will go morning, noon and night if permitted.

Rosie can be toy and food possessive which makes sense since she lived most of her life having nothing and having to guard what she did get. She will get along and learn to share with an easy going older dog.

She loves going for walks, is great on a leash, and very well-behaved for car rides. Rosie is a sweet and very affectionate blonde girl, but has a very Golden glow in her heart.

Matlin in foster

Matlin is a 9 or 10-year old female Golden Retriever who weighs 60 pounds and is available for adoption from Adopt A Golden Atlanta.

My new friend said I am a sweet girl with good house manners and that I am the best kind of dog- one that can give you lots of love. Now my friends at AGA say that I am beautiful too and that if anyone ever wanted a the perfect family member then I am the dog to choose!

If you like walks around the neighborhood or a nap in the afternoon or a friend to keep you company then why not think about me because I am very good at all those things. I’ll even show you how to look at the clouds and see pictures in them and , if you’re up to it, I can even give you a lesson in rolling in the grass? Thank you for reading about me- you friend to be, xxx Matlin.
