Hi, my name is Melody! I was rescued from animal control, and I sure am glad to be here! I came in with some fur loss and itchy sore skin but with lots of good care and good nutrition, my fur is growing back nicely and I’m looking so pretty! I’m currently in the prison/foster training program off site learning a lot as I don’t think I previously received training or proper stimuli! I’ll have new pictures taken to show off my pretty coat when I return. Please inquire at 770-272-6888 to find out when I’m available to meet.
• LIKES/DISLIKES: I LOVE to play with toys, and I am quite exuberant with my puppy antics – occasionally letting out little growly vocalizations to let you know how excited I am! I especially love tennis balls, so a fenced yard where we can have great fetching games would be wonderful in my new home. I am also very treat-motivated, yum. I love people so much that I need to be in a ‘sit’ when I meet them. / I can’t think of any dislikes right now, though I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, exercise, and training.
Hi there, I’m Ruff! I came to Mostly Mutts from animal control, and I sure am happy to be in their care while I wait to find my new family to love!! I’m a fun and spirited pup looking for a good leader to follow. I’m in a foster home with a good leader now, so we’re learning lots of things about me.
• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love fetching squeaky balls and treats. I also like walks, although I still need some work in this area. Sitting on the bench and sunning myself a bit next to the nice volunteers is fun too. / I am cautious when new people approach – I am more comfortable when new people let me initiate the interaction. I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, exercise, and training.
A SWEET & FUN EXPLORER: Approx. 4 years old / Approx. 23 lbs. Hi, my name is Jennie! I had a home, but I kept escaping my family’s yard, so they asked Mostly Mutts to find a new family to love that would be the right fit for me. I should never be left alone in a yard.
• LIKES/DISLIKES: I enjoy being out and about with my people, where I can put my sniffer to the test and explore everything! When chilling out, I love belly rubs and soaking up affection. Stuffed toys are fun, too, so let’s have great play sessions with those after my heartworm treatment and recovery period. / According to my former family, I don’t like thunderstorms or fireworks. Otherwise, I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, exercise, and training.
LOOKING FOR A GREAT LEADER: Approx. 5 years old / Approx. 32 lbs. and needs to gain a little weight. Hi there, I’m Caleb! I came to Mostly Mutts from animal control, and I sure am happy to be here! I also came in heartworm positive, but I have been treated for that and am in my rest period now. I got to spend some time in the prison/foster training program where I had a great time and learned a lot, too!
• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love playing with toys, walking with a tennis ball in my mouth, my training sessions and spending time with the nice volunteers. / I don’t like being picked up and will growl. I don’t like it when people grab me by the collar or come at my head or neck too fast. I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, exercise, and training.
Raised by a wonderful bottle baby loving foster, Gus has been with Athens Canine Rescue since before his eyes were even open! He is being raised in a foster home that houses other dogs, cats, and even some goats + chickens! Gus currently weighs in at around 9 pounds at 6 weeks old and the shelter estimates he’ll top out around 50 pounds (but stay on the short and stocky side, we think!). That’s just a guess though, so expect more (or less).
Welcome Thursday! This charming fellow with the goofiest grin is around 4-5 years old! He weighs in at just about 45 pounds — the perfect size for snuggling! He is a healthy, happy boy aside from a mass on his foot which the vet believes is a benign cyst. He sleeps through the night in his crate, but will whine a little bit when he first goes in (who could blame him, the party is outside of it!) He does great holding it throughout the day, but does best with an afternoon potty break because he loves to drink water.
This boy is SO smart and is learning lots of tricks, like “sit” and “lay down”. Thursday hasn’t been around children or cats, but lives another dog in his foster home! While he loves to play with other dogs and is friendly, he does prefer to share his space with a dog who’ll respect his boundaries. Like many shelter dogs with insecurities, Thursday resource guards “his” items. For now, he’d do best in a home without small children.
Introducing Truvy! This brindled beauty is as pretty as they come and has a personality to match. At a year and a half years old, she weighs in at 40 pounds — making her just the perfect size! Not only does Truvy have an A+ in keeping the house clean, she also knows to go into her crate on her own at night (though a treat as an incentive wouldn’t hurt). She is so well behaved that she is actually left outside of her crate when her humans are away and does great!
This girl is a social one. She loves to rough and tumble with her bigger male canine sibling. She listens to his cues well and backs off when he’s had enough. She’s met several different children and was able to mold her personality to fit their needs! With her quieter friends, she was happy to be petted. With her more active friends, she could be found chasing a ball or zipping around with them at full speed (and causing giggles galore!) She lives with a cat in the home currently, but he is quite dog savvy and lets her know who’s boss. She’d likely do well in a home with cats who are used to dogs, as she could be prone to chasing ones that fear her.
Nova is a 3 year old Hound mix who is spirited, energetic, and loving! Nova has lots of energy and needs a home where she can exercise, preferably with a fenced in back yard. Nova loves people and is very affectionate. Nova is extremely smart and needs to find a home that will work with her to get her trained to fit their needs. She is an athletic girl and would love to be able to go on long walks and enjoy the outdoors! Nova is a natural born runner and in time would probably be great for an active owner who enjoys hiking or running marathons! Nova is heartworm positive, and will require treatment. This is included in her adoption fee. If she is adopted before she receives her treatment, the staff will schedule a date for her adopters to bring her back for it.
Post is a 9 month old Lab mix who came to us with his five other siblings. Two of them have gone on to become Working K9s, and now the other four are available for adoption! Post is the largest of the four pups and seems to be the more alpha of the litter. Post loves affection and enjoys head scratches the most! You can see an example of that in the photo above. He loves to give hugs but needs some work learning not to jump up whenever he feels like it. Post is a very sweet boy who is just a big ole goofball! He needs to find a family who will understand that he is still a puppy and will need some training.
Nas is a 9 month old Lab mix who came to us with his five other siblings. Two of them have gone on to become Working K9s, and now the other four are available for adoption! Nas has been the more laid-back of the three males and he is also the smallest male in the group. He has a handsome, longer black coat that adds to just how truly gorgeous he is. All four of the pups will need some work in their new homes when it comes to basic training, but they are all so smart! We believe they will catch on quickly with any training they are introduced to. Nas has a really sweet disposition and has a tendency to be bullied by his bigger siblings, so we believe he would have a more submissive personality than the others.
I’m appalled that they didn’t mention Little Nas X was found on an Old Town Road.
Meet Packer, a lovable 6-month-old male with a weight of 28 lbs. Packer arrived at the shelter on 12/27/23 after being found as a lost boy, and sadly, no one came forward to reclaim him. Despite his rough start, Packer has proven to be not only incredibly cute but also remarkably intelligent. Already familiar with basic commands, Packer responds promptly to a sit command and is an excellent companion on a leash. His eagerness to please and willingness to work for treats make him a joy to be around.
Currently calling Run #303 home, Packer is ready to find a loving family. Identified by ID #652689, he will be neutered and microchipped before adoption, ensuring a smooth transition into his forever home. Packer is up to date on vaccines, and although heart worm testing is pending it will be done before adoption, he is looking forward to becoming the perfect furry addition to a caring family.
Meet Maple, a charming 6-month-old female weighing 40 lbs, who arrived at the shelter on 12/27/23 as a lost girl without anyone reclaiming her. This adorable puppy is as sweet as can be, but she tends to be a little shy, perhaps due to her current situation in a large kennel filled with the sounds of barking dogs. Despite her shyness, Maple is a quick learner and willingly sits when asked. She’s a true baby, and her cuteness is sure to steal your heart. Currently residing in Run #53, Maple will be spayed before adoption, is microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and will undergo heartworm testing as part of her adoption process.
If you’re looking for a loving companion who’s ready to blossom with a caring family, Maple could be the perfect addition to your home. Give this sweet girl the chance to grow and thrive in a loving environment, and you’ll find a loyal friend for life. Her ID is 652692.
This little man is Boscoe. He was on an adventure when spotted and arrived to the shelter on 12/27. Boscoe is 3 years old and weighs in at 34 pounds. He is such a good boy. He knows to sit when asked. He is quiet in his run. He dreams of being out of the shelter and in a forever loving home. Would Boscoe be a perfect fit in your family? Ask for ID# 652660 Run 50. He will be neutered soon, micro-chipped and heart worm tested upon adoption.
This is Precious – a lab/shepherd blend around 2 years old. She and 7 other dogs (including King who is also for adoption) were confiscated by animal control for cruelty and neglect. All 8 dogs were living on chains with no access to water or shelter and were basically fed only sporadically. We have “before pictures” of her -she was absolutely nothing but skin and bones when she came in -she was also full of worms and fleas. After being treated for both and being fed multiple times a day a nice steady diet, she is now down to just one meal a day and is healthy and ready to be adopted! Precious is very sweet -she can be a little timid at first but once she comes out of her shell,, she is very affectionate and gives kisses. She is good with other dogs but will likely always need to be fed separately from other dogs. After nearly starving to death, it is understandable that she would resource guard. We also would not recommend a home with small children -she loves people of all ages however, when it comes to food, she will likely always have to be monitored. It could be something she gets over in time but we do not know. What we do know is that she deserves a home that will properly care for her and love her the way she will love you. She is up to date with shots, spayed, negative for heartworms/on prevention, and crate trained. If you would like to welcome Precious into your home, please submit an adoption application at www.myhstc.org
