Harper is a beautiful German Shepherd that is a credit to her lineage in terms of looks and personality. She has a drive to do a good job. Harper listens attentively, and works to follow commands the best she knows how. We really think that she would do well under any sort of training her new family would care to put her through. Harper is the kind of girl that would excel as a working dog with a job.
Harper’s ideal family would involve no kids, but instead a couple or a single person looking for companionship and looking to have a lifelong friend that they could devote their attention and patience towards.Harper is does well in her crate and great on a leash. She likes to have a job to do, and takes her job of patrolling the grounds seriously. She has taken it upon herself to be the guardian of our staff, and she loves her people very much. Harper isn’t much for toys, but instead prefers to be on guard and working. She loves chicken! She is great at catching treats and rarely misses. She is very careful with her food not to alarm the person offering it to her. She is quite gentle with people that she knows are the alpha. Harper is currently 75 pounds. Harper is very intelligent and quite serious. Harper may require multiple meet and greets to get an accurate gauge of her personality.
Jimmy is a very smart dog and would do well with a family that loves to adventure and spend time with him. He knows basic commands like sit, stay, back up, etc. He has thrived on being taught manners, and we think he would do well in any training that an owner would wish to put him through. He listens very well and is a very intelligent, thoughtful boy. Jimmy is dominant and to date has not liked other dogs at our rescue. At this time, we recommend him being the only dog. His ideal owner would be one that shows Jimmy how to act through example and is a leader in his or her own home.
Jimmy enjoys having his back scratched, going for walks, and cuddling up on the comfiest blankets we have. He is a sweetheart that needs someone that can appreciate his brainpower as well as his handsome good looks. He is so squishy and sweet, and gives the best hugs. He is a big fan of chicken and does great on a leash. He is crate trained and rides well in a car. He is a great boy that enjoys being taught new things. Jimmy has lots of love to give!
Shane is a strong, handsome, genial, excited-about-life, sunny, joyful kind of boy. Shane is also a fighter. Shane came to the rescue group when the county sheriff’s department found him on the side of the road after having been hit by a car and apparently laying in a ditch for at least a few days. Shane’s back legs were shattered, and he has been through extensive surgery and is beginning his physical therapy that includes strengthening, short walks. He is named after his rescuer and friend in the police department, whom we are so grateful to for saving this lover. Shane never stopped smiling through the entire ordeal of surgery, healing, and growing. The surgeon that performed surgery on him got a real kick out of his excited, happy personality while he was recovering. If you couldn’t see his funny haircut, you’d never know anything horrible had ever happened to him. Watching him heal has been a true miracle and example of cheerful determination to us all at the rescue.
Shane is an active, perky, silly clown of a little boy that loves life and lives it to its fullest. He is a youngester that loves to play until he drops, and can get impatient with the movement restrictions he has had placed upon him until recently so that he can heal properly. Shane is a lover. He would do well in any family structure. Shane is approximately 30 pounds and we do not believe he will grow to be a very large dog and will stay in the medium sized dog range. Shane walks well on a leash and has done well riding in the car. He is crate trained and housebroken.
Slater is a medium size dog at 41 pounds. Big enough to not trip over, and just the right size to snuggle on the couch or romp in the yard with you. Slater is neutered, microchipped, current on core vaccines and has tested negative for heart worms. Who doesn’t love a dog who looks like he is wearing a tuxedo?
Sampson is 53 pounds of get up and go, so he would prefer an active family. Once the weather is cool enough for both of you, you will be a darling duo on walkabout together. Sampson is neutered, microchipped, current on core vaccines and tested negative for heartworms.
Just like the “real” Farrah, our girl is quite good looking and self confident. Farrah is a 3 year old adult who loves people. When it comes to other dogs though, she would prefer to be an only child.
The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia took in eight dogs from Louisiana who were evacuated before Hurricane Barry, according to The Brunswick News.
“Animal welfare organizations have such a great network that agencies come together from different states to help the animals in times of disaster,” said humane society Executive Director Virginia Schlegel.
Hurricane Barry made landfall on Louisiana’s Gulf Coast last week, on July 13, eventually dissipating over northern Arkansas on July 19.
Just before the storm hit, volunteers with Dixie Adoptables — an animal welfare group that runs the animal shelter for the city of Lucedale, Miss. — picked up as many dogs and cats as it could from the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter in Louisiana. The humane society’s shelter on U.S. Highway 17 was one of their destinations.
Schlegel said she believes all eight are highly adoptable and expects some may want to adopt them more just because they’re evacuees.
“I just encourage everyone to help in these disaster situations, because you don’t know how much it does help. If you could just foster one animal, that would be greatly appreciated,” Schlegel said.
Helga is a 4-month old female Plott Hound puppy who is available for adoption at the Washington Wilkes Humane Animal Shelter in Washington, GA. I like how the person holding Helga’s leash has shoes to match Helga’s beautiful brindle coat.
I love to play fetch and will even bring the ball back to you…I always wonder if you are going to throw the ball again. Will you be my fetch partner for the rest of my life. I just want someone to love me. Do you have time for playing fetch and endless love?
This precious pup was surrendered when her owner was unable to care for her any longer. At only 8 months, she is very much a puppy with energy and playfulness, loving everyone she has met here. The change in her living arrangements has not changed her outlook at all. We would very much like to change her living arrangements one more time, giving her a family to love, a couch to share with them, and of course yummy treats as well. Come and meet Chyna and see if she is your cup of tea. She is spayed, microchipped, current on core vaccines and has tested negative for heartworms.
I think everything is fun, interesting and meant for play, especially you. Anything you do, I’ll want to do too. With my own brand of surprises, life with me will keep you constantly on your toes, and the fun is guaranteed. Recommend children 8 years and older.
Shy yet charming canine searching for a patient owner with a relaxed lifestyle. Looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell. Treat me sweet and kind and I’ll blossom. Recommend children 8 years and older.
