Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for December 7, 2022

Nugget is an 8-month old male Boxer mix puppy who is available for adoption from Augusta Animal Services in Augusta, GA.

FUN AND HAPPY 8 month old Nugget has found himself at the shelter when his family moved and couldn’t take him with them. Not only is Nugget a fan of other dogs but he is used to cats too. But, he is rough with cats. He plays hard. He is housebroken and lets you know when it is time to go outside. Nugget will stay in a crate at night if needed. He is a cuddle bug. He seems to still be teething and will need a sturdy chew toy. Nugget understands: sit, stay, no, come and leave it. He does well on the leash but still pulls a little. He knows how to fetch. Nugget is 46 pounds. He loves to play outside with toys but also needs room to move and run. He will sit for treats and takes them gently. He does occassionally jump and seems to know the off command. Although we do think he will be good with children he is a rather big fella (and still growing) and could accidently knock a small/young child down. Therefore, we recommend a home with older, steady on their feet kids. NO CATS. Up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and heartworm negative.

Cindy Lou Who is a young female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Seeing Cindy Lou Who’s face was startling. It looks swollen, and I would think it’d bother her, but she didn’t act like it did and was always the sweetest girl. She loves treats and pets, though I kept her pets and scratches behind her ears or along her back. She was so happy to be with a friend that she’d sometimes jump up, but quick reminders kept her paws on the ground, and she’s very good about sitting for treats. She just wanted to give me hugs.

I know Cindy Lou Who will be visiting the vet soon to find out what’s going on with her face, but she’s a wonderful dog, and it’s easy to look beyond the puffiness to she what a beauty she really is.

This dog is currently at Athens-Clarke County Animal Services, located at 125 Buddy Christian Way, Athens, GA. For the most timely information on hours, location, availability and how to adopt, call the shelter any day from 10am-4pm at 706-613-3540 or go to https://www.accgov.com/133/Animal-Services.

Dax is an adult male Chihuahua mix who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Cooper is an adult male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

From Cooper’s foster family: Cooper is a good boy and sits on a dime for treats. He’s active and needs regular exercise and play time, so if you’re looking for a happy, playful buddy to share your life, Cooper would love to meet you! As soon as Cooper entered the interaction pen, he sprinted for the table where I’d placed a football. He was happy entertaining himself but enjoyed having me throw it for him, too. He loved that football so much, I pulled out a Bulldog jersey. He’s a handsome dog and looks great in red. We continued to play and had a blast. Cooper was in a foster home for a while, and we’ve learned he’s house trained. When attending off site adoption events, he’s done well with other dogs. Before coming to the shelter, he’d lived with another dog. Cooper is a good boy and sits on a dime for treats. He’s active and needs regular exercise and play time, so if you’re looking for a happy, playful buddy to share your life, Cooper would love to meet you!

Amazing Grace is a young female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Save A Life Rescue in Savannah GA.

My name is Grace “Amazing Grace” but also short for graceful and I am about a year old. I have an adorable, playful personality and do a pretty good job of entertaining myself for reasonable periods of time. I am high energy, turn-on-a-dime agility, AND the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound (o.k. slight exaggeration).

My foster mom says that I do zoomies one minute, and am a gentle spirit the next. I let her take my food and treats away without a fuss. I’m very careful not to hurt her with my mouth even in zoom mode in the back yard, That’s the GRACE and “gentle spirit” in me, she says.

I love long brisk walks, a good game of fetch, down-time snuggles, ice cubes in my water bowl, rides in the car, stealing toys, Big Box stores, my giant pineapple by day and fuzzy play bunny rabbit by night. Most of all, I love chasing the water that comes out of the backyard hose. My FM is teaching me good behavior with a clicker and I’m a quick study. I would love a human family to adopt me who will be patient helping me continue learning to be part of a proper family pack.

I’m pretty obedient except for cats, All my toys and tools for good behavior come with me. I am still a bit too big, excited by life, and goofy for small kids.. I’m good about sleeping in my GIANT Size Kennel at night and taking rest breaks there.

Mom says I’m an amazing work of art in the making and if you are patient and love me, I will be the best and most adoring pack member you could hope for. I wouldn’t mind having another doggie mate to play with during the hours when you aren’t available.

Heidi is a 13-month old, 24-pound female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Save A Life Rescue in Savannah GA.

Heidi is sweet and loving, with the energy of a young Jack Russell. Some say she has an underbite, we say she has a permanent half grin. She enjoys leash walks and meeting her canine neighbors. Heidi is a creative girl, and will make a game out of any object she discovers. Twigs and rocks will entertain her for hours. Heidi would love nothing more than to snuggle with a human on the couch in the evenings.
Heidi requires a fully fenced in yard attached to the home. 

Samuel is a 2-year old, 13-pound male French Bulldog and Chihuahua mix who is available for adoption from Save A Life Rescue in Savannah GA.

Samuel was rescued from Animal Services . He is now neutered, vaccinated and on his monthly Heart worm and flea prevention. He is bright, personable, and full of fun. He does well with other dogs, and enjoys all kinds of games. He is housebroken, trained to sleep in a crate, and sits on command. Samuel is a little charmer. He is looking for an inside home with a fenced yard and a family to love him for life.

Jack is a 7-month old male Catahould Leopard Dog mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Jack found his way to animal control at the young age of 6 months. He is a playful, goofy boy who loves attention and head scratches. In his short time in rescue, he is already walking well on the leash (once he focuses) and is also working on other tricks like sitting for treats. Jack will be a large dog with a lot of energy. A fenced yard is highly recommended.

Narwhal is an 11-month old male Bulldog and Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Narwhal originally came to rescue last December as a newborn puppy. His first adoption did not work out for him and he is now looking agin for his forever home. He is a very good boy, kennel trained, and does great on leash. Narwhal has a lot of anxiety about getting in a car and is sometimes very timid and defensive about meeting new people. While with a foster on a sleepover, he didn’t bark at all.

Hobbs is a year-old male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

At just three weeks old, Hobbs and his family (Mom and siblings) found their way to rescue after being abandoned at a local county shelter. Hobbs was adopted as a young puppy, but has returned to rescue – and boy has he grown! A happy and active puppy, he is still very hyper and full of puppy energy. He is paper trained, working on potty training and knows “no” and “sit.” Hobbs likes to play ball, crunchy sounding toys, and has a squeaky doggie he loves.

This loveable guy is good with dogs, cats and kids, and would be a great addition to a family looking for a (big) puppy to grow with them. As long as they like cuddles and kisses.

Brownie is an adult male Basset Hound mix who is available for adoption from BARC Humane Society in Valdosta, GA.

Brownie is an around six year old Bassett mix. He is a SUPER buddy!! He is very dedicated to his person and loves everyone. He is fine around calmer dogs and cats but would not be a good match as a playmate. He is house trained, does well on a leash and likes to ride. He is a true hound and likes to howl to let you know his thoughts. He always wants to be around, so no more alone time…..only Brownie buddy time! Brownie has severe separation anxiety and requires medication to assist him in managing his fears when left alone. Brownie requires crating when left alone, as he can be destructive. Brownie is the kindest and most gentle thing on four stubby legs and needs a family that is willing to commit to putting his needs first.

Elvis is a young male Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from BARC Humane Society in Valdosta, GA.

Elvis is an around 3-6 month old terrier mix. This sweet boy came from a domestic violence situation where he was kicked and thrown out of a car. He is seeking an experienced calmer home that will be patient with teaching him how to be the bestest boy. He is still all puppy and still has behaviors of jumping and nipping BUT, he makes it up by being fun, and active and loving, and funny and friendly and happy! He is working on house and crate training. He gets along with everything and a fun loving, stable canine friend would help him grown and learn. He may not do well in a home with younger children due to his background. Elvis likes to sing and has to be redirected while he learns to hone in his musical skills.

Coupe is an adult male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from BARC Humane Society in Valdosta, GA.

Coupe is an around 5 year old boxer/lab mix. He is great with kids and other dogs. He is a lounger but also loves to be active.

Shiloh is a young female Labrador Retriever and Hound mix puppy who is available for adoption from Wet Noses Animal Rescue in Blue Ridge, GA.

Shiloh is one of 9:hound mix puppies that were not being fed by the owners. They agreed to surrender them to us so we could see they were fed and taken care of properly. All of them came in terrified but now have transformed into happy, healthy and friendly pups. Shiloh is very loving and playful. She enjoys romping around the yard with her siblings and is ready for a family of her own. She is crate trained and working on house training. Shiloh is spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped. She would do best with a young male playmate along with a family who likes adventures outdoors. A fenced yard is necessary to adopt Shiloh. (No underground fences.)

Tillie is a young female Labrador Retriever and Hound mix puppy who is available for adoption from Wet Noses Animal Rescue in Blue Ridge, GA. Tillie is from the same litter as Shiloh.

Otis is house and crate trained, as well as current on vaccines, microchipped and neutered. He would love to find a family who will be at home most of the day. Otis is great with kids, cats and dogs. The highlight of his day is sitting with you on the couch, giving kisses and snuggling.

Sir Henry is a young male Beagle and German Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from Wet Noses Animal Rescue in Blue Ridge, GA.

Sir Henry is an adorable Beagle/Shepherd mix. He is very playful and loving. Sir Henry plays well with his siblings and has been very sweet to the children he has encountered, Sir Henry would do best in a home with another dog his size to play with. We think he would enjoy exploring with his owner or going for a hike.

Maisey is a young female Border Collie mix who is available for adoption from the Henry County Humane Societyin McDonough, GA.

Maisey is a precious active puppy! The shelter believes she is about weeks old and expects her to be a small medium size dog when grown. They are unsure of her exact breed.

Chewy is a young male Havanese mix who is available for adoption from the Henry County Humane Societyin McDonough, GA.

Chewy came to the shelter from animal control in January of this year. His left eye was ruptured and had to be to be removed. We also discovered his lower right jaw was broken as well. Chewy had to have his jaw wired at the dental specialist and had to wear a muzzle and e-collar 24 hours a day for 8 week! He ate, slept and played in a muzzle and e-collar and he did great! Chewy had to have follow up surgery to remove several teeth because they no longer were in alignment but that’s ok because he has done great with that surgery as well! His adopter will need to keep in mind that Chewy may need yearly dentals to keep his teeth and gums health since his bite is no longer in alignment.

Chewy is a precious boy and deserves the best life ever. We believe Chewy has a birthday of 4/2021 and weights 13 lbs.

Pepper is an adult male Pomeranian mix who is available for adoption from the Henry County Humane Societyin McDonough, GA.

This poor boy is missing his person. Pepper was returned to animal control due to no fault of his own but he has now found himself looking for a new family. Pepper is about 5 years old and loves to be held. Please consider giving this boy another chance to find his forever family.
