Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for January 18, 2022



Daisy Mae
is a two-year old, 35-pound female German Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Daisy has come such a long way since living in her foster home. Daisy is silly, sweet, and cuddly. Her favorite thing is taking long walks around the neighborhood. She has perfect leash manners! Daisy thrives with routine, where she knows what to expect and what’s expected of her. Daisy is house-trained, crate trained, not destructive, good with cats, and so worth the time it takes to get to know her. She loves to run in the yard with her friends.

Ajay is a 2-year old, 50-pound male Pointer mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Ajay is doing fantastic with leash training. He does great in his crate at night. He plays well with other dogs. Ajay would not be good with cats in the house. Ajay needs a home with no young children. He will need someone that will give him a good balance of exercise and continuing his training. He does get over stimulated at times outside the house but we are working on that.

Schwarber is a young male Labrador Retriever and Pointer mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Schwarber is a sweet 9-month-old boy that weighs around 50 lbs. His foster family has been working very hard to teach him how to balance his puppy tendencies with acceptable behavior. He would benefit from an adoptive family that also has experience raising a puppy and the training that comes along with it. Schwarber loves to cuddle. If he can’t find a human willing to cuddle with him, he will accept a canine friend as a second choice. He loves his toys, will hoard them and then lay in the middle of his pile throwing them in the air and rubbing his scent on them. Schwarber would do well in a home with another active dog (or no dog) and older children. Cats would not enjoy Schwarber’s company. Schwarber is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations and crate and house trained.

Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for January 14, 2022

Tilda is a young female Doberman Pinscher and Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Tilda is right around 3 months old. We aren’t positive of her breed, but our best guess is Doberman Pinscher. She has a velvety smooth coat, and a triangular shaped head, long legs and a slender body. At 3 months old, she weighs about 20 pounds, so we feel that she may be 50-60 pounds when grown. She has a bubbly, friendly personality. She plays with all of the dogs….and the cat! She has never met a stranger! Tilda is crate trained. She sits for her meals and is learning manners, but she does like to chew wires! She is, after all, a puppy! She is super smart and will take to training very easily!

Pica Pepper is a young female Labrador Retriever and Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Starlight is a sweet senior female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Starlight is an absolute delight! She is a typical senior dog that loves to nap, but also loves to get petted and wag her tail. Starlight is completely housebroken and quickly learned how to use a doggy door. She enjoys trotting and sniffing around the yard! She is also great on a leash. Starlight tends to ignore cats and other dogs smaller than her.

Starlight will need to eat soft/canned food. She is only 23 lbs and will need to gain several. She doesn’t bark at all and is partially deaf. Starlight would be a great addition to a quieter house seeking a perfect companion dog. She has been a great shadow to us, always wanting to sleep in a dog bed nearby.

Six-month old Labradoodle Hank has a new job as a Therapy Dog at Forsyth County Senior Services Center, according to AccessWDUN.

“Just a couple of days ago, I had a lady come in, it was her first time meeting Hank and she’s petting him smiling and she said, ‘Hank, I love you,’” said Hunter Bennett, Community Relations person for Forsyth County Senior Services and Hank’s handler. “In our memory support program, we had a gentleman in there that was petting [Hank] one day and he looks at me with clarity in his eyes and he tells me that his grandfather had a dog just like Hank.”

Naturally, everyone at the senior center loves Hank. Visitors and staff will scratch Hank’s head, ears, and happily receive some doggie kisses.

Last year, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office announced seven Labradoodle puppies were making their way through the Forsyth County Pups with Purpose program.

Hank was one of those pups.

“By the time I got Hank, he had already had so much love poured into him,” said Bennett. “There were two different times on the day I picked him up from the jail that I thought people were going to cry, talking about how special he was.”

The Pups with Purpose program pairs inmates at the Forsyth County Jail with unwanted dogs from the Forsyth County Animal Shelter.

Inmates train the dogs for the purpose of helping them to find a home. But Hank and his six siblings were trained for a higher purpose- to serve as therapy dogs at government buildings, schools and even a hospital.

“We actually just yesterday completed our beginner obedience class, which I think is mostly for me as handler than it is him,” Bennett said, chuckling. “We’re now going to be moving on to an advanced obedience course, and that is being conducted through Scot Rucker Dog Training.”

Dolly, my Hound who inspired the legislation naming the Adoptable Dog as the Official State Dog of Georgia, trained as a therapy dog. We hoped she’d be able to visit patients at the Hospice Atlanta facility in our neighborhood. She failed the final exam. Vacuum cleaners remain on her list of enemies.

More information on the Forsyth County Pups with Purpose program are available at their website.

From the Albany Herald:

In 2021 the Lee County Animal Shelter was able to find homes for 528 cats and dogs, a remarkable achievement that was the direct result of the efforts by the facility’s staff.

The animal shelter, located on the corner of Georgia Highway 32 and Mossy Dell Road, is under the supervision of Marshall Jim Wright of Code Enforcement. It is staffed by Jessica Walker, Dana Mathis, Tanner Apperson and Tiffany Malszycki. Most of the animals at the shelter are strays that are brought in by Animal Control Officers Sherman Martin and Kathy Mills. A small few are drop-offs by citizens who are no longer able or willing to care for a pet.

For such a small shelter, which is able to house only a maximum of 47 animals, staff is able to find permanent homes for almost all the animals taken in. The pet-friendly folks who work there are dedicated to their jobs of caring for the animals, keeping the shelter clean, and posting notices of adoption potentials, among other duties. With the exception of severely injured, sick or aggressive animals, almost all animals taken to the shelter were adopted last year.

“This is all about the staff’s efforts,” Wright said. “They love what they do and take great pride in their jobs of caring for all the animals brought into the facility.”

For persons who are so inclined, the shelter also accepts pet food drop-offs from citizens, as well as cleaning supplies and other monetary donations throughout the year. Donations to neighborhood shelters, officials note, have more impact on a local community than donations to nationwide organizations.

Peanut Butter is a male English Bulldog who is available for adoption from Georgia English Bulldog Rescue in Winder, GA.

Peanut Butter loves to be with his people and enjoys other dogs. He prefers to get all the attention but isn’t aggressive about it; he just passively inserts himself and pushes the other dog away.

Winston Cole is a male English Bulldog who is available for adoption from Georgia English Bulldog Rescue in Winder, GA.

Winston Cole has been diagnosed with dry eye and will need prescription eye drops for life. His ideal home will be quiet, not have small kids and not have other dogs. He likes other dogs, but he also likes all of the attention. He would like to be in a home with owners that are home more than they are not (works inside the home or retired). He also prefers men over women so a male handler would be great. He seems to have a little anxiety about change and new things but settles in quickly.

Isis is a female English Bulldog who is available for adoption from Georgia English Bulldog Rescue in Winder, GA.
