Dixie and her mate Buddy are bonded and will be adopted together. Dixie is a Beagle/Dachshund mix. She’s four years old and weighs just 25 lbs. She is incredibly sweet and gentle. Well-mannered, most likely house-trained. She is calm, quiet, walks well on a leash and welcomes any attention. Dixie is affectionate and friendly. She seems dog friendly, and we’ll test with cats for potential adopters.

Buddy is a retriever mix. He’s seven years old and weighs 62 lbs. Like his best mate, he’s also amazing. He’s calm, quiet, well-mannered, obedient, walks well on a leash, friendly, affectionate and so gentle. He’s most likely house-trained. We expect he’s dog friendly and we’ll test with cats for potential adopters.

We can’t say enough good things about Dixie and Buddy. Whoever had them before must have loved them a lot. These two do everything together and are very companionable. They are incredibly well-behaved and we can tell they just long to be in the quiet and safety of a home. These super sweet doggos, have no business in a shelter. We hope we can find them their forever home soon. They were dropped-off at a high-kill shelter when their family situation changed recently. We rescued them just as soon as we could.

Treasure Pup and Cat Co

Treasure is a 6-7 year old, 70-pound male Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from Pup & Cat Co. in Winder, GA.

Treasure is like a big, snuggly teddy bear! Treasure has been in boarding waiting on someone to love him for 5 years! He plays outside every day, but 5 years is way too long. Treasure absolutely loves playing chase and fetch with tennis balls, soccer balls, footballs, etc, going on hikes, playing with the volunteers’ kids, and relaxing in the sunshine. He is so well behaved that he’s toured museums and several historic sights that don’t even allow dogs!

Treasure has a high prey drive which means that he wants to chase small creatures like squirrels, cats, and little dogs…so no cats or small dogs in his future family, please

Treasure really enjoys snuggles, chicken nuggets, car rides, walks, and playing catch with anyone who will throw the ball. Again and again and again.

Benny Pup and Cat Co

Benny is a 5-year old male Foxhound mix who is available for adoption from Pup & Cat Co. in Winder, GA.

Benny has a bad foot from a car accident in his earlier life. Benny is an indoor dog, he will bark if left outside. He is crate trained, but prefers to sleep on his doggie bed at night. He is completely housebroken and never has accidents. He is able to wait long periods of time before needing to go out. He likes going on walks and can fetch. He is most content to lay in the sun (inside) like a huge cat and nuzzle you. He doesn’t bark unless someone comes in the the yard, to the front door, or if he sees other animals. He is not cat friendly, but does fine with most dogs.

Lily Pup and Cat Co

Lily is a 1-year old, 450-pound female Hound mix who is available for adoption from Pup & Cat Co. in Winder, GA.

Lily is house and crate trained and does good with most other dogs, as she has a dominant personality, and all kids. She does have a good amount of energy so will need a good walk or play session in the fenced in yard to wear her out. Lily is a typical hound mix so you will hear some howling but she takes correction well. She loves to snuggle with her people when she is not playing with a toy, preferably with a squeaker! Is this lovable girl the next addition to your family?

Allie is a beautiful 7-9 year old girl who has a sweet, tender disposition and is very affectionate. She loves to go for walks and play fetch in the back yard.

She looks and acts younger than her age, so don’t let her middle-aged status scare you off. Allie can be protective about her people and her home, so she is best suited as an only dog.

Daisy Much Ado About Hounds

Daisy is a senior female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Much Ado About Hounds, Inc. in Stone Mountain, GA.

Daisy learns quickly and at times seems to out think the people she is with. She chases balls, does a few tricks, but really shines at figuring out puzzles and tasks on her own. She can leap really high, and every year is fascinated by the barn swallows that nest in the eves around the house. She doesn’t want to hurt them, but she does like to watch.

She is very food motivated and will try to steal other dogs’ meals if you don’t watch her. She also requires a sturdy fenced-in yard to keep her safe since she is part hound and could wander if left loose. Daisy will also climb a chain link fence, so she needs a secure fence, such as a privacy fence or another type which is climb-proof.

Daisy is about 6 years of age, spayed, fully vaccinated, and heart worm negative. She weighs about 60 lbs and gets along well with other dogs. She is cat aggressive, so her forever home must be without cats. She is also likely to chase dogs smaller than herself. She loves people and kids and will play all day if you let her.

Jail Dogs is a cooperative program involving the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office and jail, and the Society of Humane Friends, according to AccessWDUN.

A group of dogs of various breeds and sizes are participating in a weekly training exercise at the Gwinnett County Detention Center. They follow basic commands like “sit” and “speak” and occasionally pull on the leash held by their handler, who is also an inmate at the jail.

The dogs are a part of the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Operation Second Chance, also known as the Jail Dogs program, which rescues dogs from local animal shelters and pairs them with jail inmates. The dogs live with their inmate handlers inside of their jail cells and participate in weekly training exercises with them.

Operation Second Chance began in 2010 when Sheriff Butch Conway learned of the staggering amount of animals being euthanized in Gwinnett County. His concern prompted him to contact the Society of Humane Friends of Georgia and its founder Dennis Kronenfeld, which led to a partnership and the creation of the Jail Dogs program. Volkodav said that Conway chose to work with the Society of Humane Friends of Georgia to make the Jail Dogs program more community-oriented.

The inmates themselves volunteer to participate in the program, but have to undergo a screening process because some charges can prevent them from joining the unit. Volkodav said that the inmates in the program are usually non-violent offenders and none of them face animal cruelty charges.

One inmate was so inspired by his time with the Jail Dog unit that he published a book about his experience- while still in jail. Shane Hawkins told his mother what to write as they would talk on the telephone, then she compiled all of the information together and sent it to the publisher. The book From Trouble to Train is available on Amazon.

Volkodav ended by stating that the program is a legacy for Sheriff Butch Conway, who will retire at the end of this year.

“Sheriff Butch Conway is known for being an animal advocate and Operation Second Chance, this Jail Dog program, is a wonderful legacy that he leaves behind as he moves into the retirement phase of his life,” said Volkodav. “It’s a great fingerprint that he’s left in our community by providing this program.”

She said that she expects for the program to continue even after Conway leaves his position.

“I would expect it would continue indefinitely, I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to rescue these unwanted dogs and cats,” said Volkodav.

Jail Dog Timber

Timber is a 2-3 year old, 26-pound male Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Jail Dogs in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Timber came from a local shelter after being surrendered by his family when they could no longer care for him. He is a unique looking guy with his brindle coloring and ears that flop one way and then another. Timber is house trained and picking up very quickly on his basic obedience skills. He enjoys spending time with all the puppies in the unit, but not a big fan of the larger high energy dogs.

Jail Dog Roxy

Roxy is an 8-year old, 86-pound female Lab mix who is available for adoption from Jail Dogs in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Need a beautiful blonde in your life?

That’s me, Roxy! I love stuffed animal toys, long walks, playing tug, and being loved on. I can sit, stay, come, and lay down. I’m pretty strong, so I’d do best in a house without small kids. My handler says I wake him up every day with the sweetest Roxy smile. She’s wonderful with humans, but is not always comfortable with other dogs, so she’d do best as an only dog.

Jail Dog Bud

Bud is a 7-year old, 68-pound “bully breed” dog who is available for adoption from Jail Dogs in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Bud loves people but would be best as an only dog. He loves playing with sticks and chewing on bones. Bud would do well with a large backyard. He loves to howl when he hears sirens and noises outside. He can be energetic. He gets along with some dogs, (females better than males) but can be very dominate. He loves to play with a ball and is very treat motivated. He is a quick study and knows basic commands such as sit, down, relax, stay, come and shake.
