Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for December 7, 2021

A litter of abandoned puppies was found in Midway, Georgia, according to WSAV.

13 puppies were found dumped in the area of Jones Creek Park and Isle of Wight Road in Midway, according to Liberty County Animal Services.

[Liberty County Animal Services Director Steve] Marrero said the department sees animal abandonment almost daily, but it’s uncommon to see it with this many dogs.

Patricia Durham, owner of K9 Battle Buddies in Hinesville, said one question went through her mind when a witness called to tell her what happened.

“Why?” Durham asked. “There are so many rescues that would take these puppies. We stay full all the time. There’s such a problem, people don’t spay and neuter and there’s so many rescue dogs but even I would’ve been able to take them in, reached out to other rescues and worked together.”

“I honestly can’t come up with an answer as to why,” Durham said. “I myself could never do something like that, I don’t know what makes them do it. We never get to the dumpers, we only get to the ones who find them.”

The eight dogs that were rescued are currently being held at Liberty County Animal Services. Marrero said police and the Department of Agriculture were made aware of the incident.

K9 Battle Buddies is a rescue group that works to train dogs and place them with combat veterans or first responders who suffer from PTSD or Traumatic Brain Injuries.

It is our honor to rehabilitate, train, and place dogs with a Combat Veterans suffering from PTSD and/or TBI.

Our goal is to get the Veteran involved in training their dog, starting with basic obedience, and then specific training based on their individual needs. This proven method allows a closer bond between the dog and their Veteran. The Veteran is given a list of short and long-term goals for their dog, and practice what they have learned when they are home. Our volunteer trainers then test the progress of the dog and Veteran upon the return to the training class. We believe this will create a stronger bond between dog and their Veteran.

Our Mission covers three main purposes

1) We utilize rescued dogs in our program, saving the life of an animal.

2) Promote a Positive Breed Image for German Shepherds, American Staffordshire terrier’s, Staffordshire terrier’s, American Pit Bulls, American Bullies, English Bulldogs, and other molosser breeds.

3) To show the loyalty, willingness to learn, and please not only the Veteran, but to the public as well.

The late Mrs. GaPundit would undoubtedly have supported K9 Battle Buddies, as she loved dogs, military veterans and first responders, and she worked for years with the Georgia Brain and Spinal Injury Trust Fund Commission, serving Georgians who suffered from traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.

I believe the following dogs currently cared for by K9 Battle Buddies are for adoption only by combat veterans or first responders with PTSD or TBI, though I believe that they’ll allow fosters who don’t meet those criteria, and they have dogs in need of a foster home today.

Keco is a 10 month old Husky and Rottweiler mix who was an owner surrender to Long County Animal Control and is available for adoption from K9 Battle Buddies in Hinesville, GA.

Hooch is a 1.5 year old male Mastiff and Labrador Retriever mix available for adoption from K9 Battle Buddies in Hinesville, GA.

Hooch’s previous owner was incarcerated and a friend took him to prevent him from going to Animal Control. He is a good boy, loves kids and other dogs! Sadly, he has never been to the vet. His new owners only wanted to help find him a good forever and there is nothing better for him then to make him a Battle Buddy!

Allie is a three-year old female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from K9 Battle Buddies in Hinesville, GA.

Masha is a female German Shepherd dog mix who needs an emergency foster to work with K9 Battle Buddies in Hinesville, GA.

She is a very smart girl and is crate trained, unfortunately she is fear dog aggressive. She needs a home with no other dogs. If you are a dog free home and are willing to at least foster her to give her a safe place until we find her a forever home please comment on this post, message the page, or fill out the foster application on our website, www.k9bb.org. K9 Battle Buddies covers all expenses for our furbabies, all you need to provide is a roof over her head and love.

Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for December 6, 2021

Daisy is a female Hound mix who is available for adoption from TLC Pet Rescue in Stockbridge, GA. From other photos, she looks to be on the small-to-medium size.

Levi is a male Catahoula Leopard Dog and Collie mix who is available for adoption from TLC Pet Rescue in Stockbridge, GA.

Meet Levi! This boy is stunning! He is a Catahoula mix (we think may be also mixed with Collie) and this boy gets compliments everywhere he goes! Levi came to us back in January of this year. Levi is dog friendly but prefers the ladies. Catahoula’s are known to not be friendly towards males and he definitely gets along better with the female dogs in his foster home than the males so a home with another female dog would be best for Levi. He is house and crate trained. He LOVES toys and entertains himself with them. He also loves the car but plays chase when you try to put a leash on him. He would be best in a home with children 10+ due to his excited jumping.

Dasher is a male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from TLC Pet Rescue in Stockbridge, GA.

Dasher is a 1-2 year old black lab mix (maybe mixed with a little hound dog as well)! This boy is the total package and has the energy level typical of a lab so he is looking for an active home that will provide the physical activity he needs daily! Dasher plays great with other dogs and would do well with a dog similar to his energy level. He doesn’t have much of a shut off button so if he is placed with another dog it needs to be a dog that will tolerate him wanting to play quite a bit. He would be fine as an only dog too. He is also kid friendly, cats unknown.

Dasher is crate and house trained. He knows his basic commands such as sit, paw and lay down. He would prefer a fenced in yard- he can jump a fence! So with that being said, he would need a 6 foot privacy type fence either wood or vinyl that he cannot jump over. He also loves car rides and loves to be by your side. He is going to make the perfect companion! He would enjoy hikes, walks and runs as well.

Apollo is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Hi, my name is Apollo but my friends call me Buddy! I am a male that is about 19 weeks old (estimated birthday is 6/16/21), and I currently weigh about 35 lbs. I am a lab mix of some sort, but no one has seen my parents so that is just a guess (I was found as a stray with my siblings). I am a very friendly and love other people, children, and other dogs. I tend to bark at cats but I am getting more used to them in my foster home. I’m house trained and I know tricks like “sit.” I am also learning how to walk well on a leash and to come when I am called. I am crate trained and sleep in my crate at night. I am a sweet, lovable puppy that is looking to pour out some love with my new family! I am looking for my furever family…could that be you?

Millie is a female Chihuahua mix who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Hey yall my name is Millie! I am approximately five years old and weigh around 10 pounds. I am spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm positive — but don’t worry, it’s not contagious and the rescue pays for my treatment until I am heartworm negative! I enjoy cuddling with my foster parents and going for walks outside. I’m looking for someone who is going to be patient with me, as I can be shy and might take a while to open up to new people and places. Once I feel comfortable, I am just the sweetest little girl. I love to be close to my people and will give the best cuddles. I have a tendency to do best with women, and would thrive in a home with at least one female. I get along with dogs and cats, although big dogs scare me a little. I am house-trained, right now my foster parents dont crate me when they leave the house because I am trustworthy. I enjoy sometimes playing with toys, especially those that make crinkle noises! Im looking for my Furever home, could you be it?!

Finn is a young male Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Finn (Finnegan) will be 1.5 years old in January 2021 and currently weighs about 50ish pounds. He is up to date on vaccinations, neutered & heartworm positive, but we will test again before adoption, it’s not contagious, and the rescue covers his treatment until he tests negative! Best guess on breed: Shepherd/retriever mix. Finn was rescued from an abandoned house as an older puppy by animal welfare. It was clear that he had not had human interaction and was terrified of humans. It has taken tremendous patience, but Finn has come a long way from the scared puppy that he was to the quirky, funny dog that would thrive in right home. Finn will need an experienced dog owner.

Peanut Butter is a male Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Circle of Friends Animal Society Inc. in Greensboro, GA.

Peanut Butter is a 5 yr old scruffy terrier mix. He was living with 2 pits and a cat but his owner lost his home and had to give him up. He’s a good dog who loves attention but has a bit of an independent streak so he would do best in a household with adults or at least older children.

Teeny is a female Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Circle of Friends Animal Society Inc. in Greensboro, GA.

Teeny is a small scruffy terrier about a year old. She came to us along with 4 other terriers when her owner was no longer able to care for them. She can be very nervous and nippy at first meeting but once she trusts you she is a love bug. These dogs were kept in the house and rarely let out so they are not house trained. They are working on house training but their adopter must be prepared to work with them. They are starting to do well with the pee pads. These dogs are not leash trained and need a fenced yard to insure their safety.

Izabel is a female Black and Tan Coonhound mix who is available for adoption from Circle of Friends Animal Society Inc. in Greensboro, GA.

Izabel is a 6 yr old coonhound mix. She was turned into a rural animal control when her family decided they could no longer afford to take care of her. She was pregnant and gave birth to 8 beautiful pups there. She was a great mom in spite of the fact that she was skin and bones and could barely feed her pups. Her rescue group has gotten her back to a healthy weight and she is ready to show you how good she is at loving.
