Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for February 4, 2019

Theresa Glynn

Theresa is a female Pit Bull (looks more like a Hound to me) who is available for adoption from Glynn County Animal Services in Brunswick, GA.

Ollie Brunswick

Ollie is an adult male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Glynn County Animal Services in Brunswick, GA.

Tucker Brunswick

Tucker is a male Labrador Retrieve mix puppy who is available for adoption from Glynn County Animal Services in Brunswick, GA.

Glynn County Animal Control will begin allowing dogs to be taken on field trips, according to The Brunswick News.

Upon completing certain requirements, residents can volunteers to “sign out” animals with them for a few hours or a few days, said Animal Control Manager Tiffani Hill. Whether taking them to the beach, on a morning jog or afternoon walk, Hill said the opportunity is healthy for both parties.

“We have been kind of beta testing it for the past six months, but it’s only been one dog here or there and only staff members doing it,” Hill said. “For years, other shelters around the country have been successful having programs like this.”

The first step is completing animal control’s volunteer training course.

“They come through our new volunteer training, and fill out our foster paperwork — it’s considered a foster opportunity. They have to fill out the paperwork, and then they can start checking dogs out,” Hill said.

The program has actually helped boost adoptions. Animal control requires volunteers to walk the dogs with special collars and leashes to indicate they are shelter pets up for adoption, she said, which attracts potential adopters.

“We’ve already had four adopted just from them being out in the community,” Hill said. ”We’ve had two success adopts for dogs who have gone to the Pack Canine Studio on the island … They check out dogs to take to their facility, and they’ve helped us place two dogs.”

Puffin PAWS

Puffin is a young male Rottweiler mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

Puffin has everything going for him except a home. Intelligent, athletic, sweet, and well behaved, he is nearly perfect in every way. This exuberant nine-month-old runs like the wind! He loves to play with people and dogs alike. Whatever activity you suggest, he’s game. Puffin is also a gentleman. He comes when called and is eager to please, looking at you for his cues. He is mannerly on his leash and he waits to be released into his kennel or onto the trails. Whatever Puffin’s heritage might be, it works. Stand back, and you can see his Rottweiler coloring. Watch him run, and a sleek herder or a retriever springs to mind. He is, in a word, beautiful. Puffin plays nicely with another PAWS dog, so bring yours out to meet him during a supervised visit. He’ll be waiting, eager to make your acquaintance.

Atreyu PAWS

Atreyu is a male Hound and Rottweiler mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

Atreyu is a staff favorite: playful, fun, eager to get his game on with anyone and everyone. With his long legs, he may be the fastest runner and ball chaser in the shelter. Atreyu loves going for walks, and really enjoys ANY kind of exercise. He is so eager to meet people, it sometimes takes him a minute to gather himself in his kennel. We hope he’ll find an active home with gentle people who can guide him and show him how to be an excellent dog.

Butter PAWS

Butter is a male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

When Butter smiles at us, and he smiles at us a lot, everything feels right with the world. He’s a sleek, athletic, wildly-smart guy who is looking for a kindred spirit human. At 4, Butter bonds quickly with people who will spend time with him, engage him, and really get him. He is so crazy intelligent, he craves a job, or something to do – whether it’s training, or playing fetch in the yard, or going for a run together. Doesn’t matter. He needs that sense of purpose and connection.

Butter has been working with the positive-focused trainers at Canine PhD for so long, he practically has a PhD in the basics of being a great dog. Now, all he needs is someone who can channel his energy and give him a job to do, even if that “job” is just having fun. When you first meet him, you might get the feeling Butter is sizing you up. Mostly because he is. But once he knows you, he is loyal to a fault. He has been fostered and has been wonderful in with the people in his foster homes, but he was not willing to share with other pets.

Butter can sometimes be possessive with food and high-value treats and toys, so we feel he would not be a great fit for young children. He would be perfect for you if you’re looking for a confident, smart, striking dog who is beyond eager to learn. We could talk about Butter for days. If you have any questions, please shoot them our way. No one deserves a happy-ever-after more than this guy.
