Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for October 9, 2019

Mr Virgil 2

Mr. Virgil (above and below) is a 3-5 year old, 15-pound rat terrier mix who is available for adoption from Angels Among Us.

My foster parents found me wandering around their neighborhood in Athens, Georgia. They tried really hard to find my former family-they notified animal control, checked for a microchip and posted lots of signs. So I’m now looking for a new home. My foster parents think I am part terrier and part Chihuahua and totally cute.

I tend to be afraid of new people, at first, and I bark (loudly!) to show them I’m scared and need some time to warm up. However, within about 5 minutes, I am wagging my tail and seeking attention (I love treats). Food is the way to my heart.

Other than when I am scared, I am very quiet and rarely bark or whine. I love the elementary-aged children in my foster family and I like to play with their 10-month old, high-energy puppy. Although, he likes to play more frequently than I do! When I am not playing with my foster brother or with toys, I am usually very chill and love my crate.

I would be most comfortable in a home with another medium energy doggie brother or sister about my size; big dogs frighten me. I have not been around cats very much, but I don’t seem to care one way or another about the neighborhood cats that come near my yard. Older children are preferred due to my excitement when playing as I can become a little mouthy. I’m doing well with my house training, but I am not 100% there.

I do best with patience and love. I need help to get through my fear of meeting new humans and bigger dogs.

Note: Mr. Virgil is currently fostered in Athens, but is adoptable through the Atlanta-based Angels Among Us.

Finster Angels Among Us

Finster (aka Finn) is a 55-pound male Golden Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Angels Among Us in Atlanta, GA.

Hi, my name is Finster (Finn). I am a fluffy one year old Golden Retriever/ Lab mix. I am 55 pounds and need to gain a little more! I like running around outside and need a home where I can be active. I like relaxing with my pack just as much as I love playing. I’m a big lap dog, love to snuggle, and give wet kisses!

I am housetrained and I’m really good on a leash. I’m still learning a few manners though. Sometimes, I play bite, and I jump when I’m excited, and occasionally I like to carry around my foster family’s belongings if they don’t have a close eye on me. So, for now, I stay in a crate when my foster family has to leave the house.

I get a little anxious about it and I don’t particularly care for a crate, but I’m working on it. I need a family where someone is home most of the day.

I’m very smart and learn quick! I learned to sit, shake, and lay down in the past month.

Sally Ann Angels Among Us

Sally Ann is a young female Chihuahua and Dachshund mix puppy who is available for adoption from Angels Among Us in Atlanta, GA.

SallyAnn is a perfect puppy! She weighs about 10 pounds at 10 weeks old. Foster mommy thinks she will get to about 35-40 lbs, but she could surprise you in what she ends up. She acts like a puppy, chewing, playing with dogs and people, learning where to pee and poop, and living the puppy life. She is likely a mix of some fluffy black dog and maybe some other blackish dog. However, we can confirm both parents were definitely dogs.

Mikey Atlanta Lab Rescue

Mikey is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Atlanta Lab Rescue in Atlanta, GA.

Hi everyone, I’m Mikey! My siblings (Arleen & Sharon) and I have had quite an adventure in our young lives. We were born sometime in late July in South Georgia, ended up in a shelter at just five weeks old and then found our way north to safety. We are now living together in a loving foster home while looking for our forever families. I would love for my new family to have lots of time to show me the good life, love and care for me and teach me all I need to know to become a great dog and long-time companion.

Lobo Doggie Harmony

Lobo is a 2-year old, 50-pound male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Doggie Harmony in Decatur, GA.

Lobo’s ideal home will be someone who will throw a ball with him, but also lounge on the couch. He loves to be scratched, and have some belly rubs.
Lobo has spent the last 3 months working closely with a trainer at a board and train. He has been refining his manners, and he’s eager to please his owner.

Temperament: Gets along with dogs and kids
Training: Housetrained, crate-trained, obedience-trained, walks nicely on leash

Lady Doggie Harmony

Lady is a 5-year old, 55-pound female Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from Doggie Harmony in Decatur, GA.

Lady’s eyes say it all, wide open and ready to play with you and love on you. After a slow introduction, she is good with other dogs especially her pals John and Caesar.  Also see video posted on her bio. Lady is extremely well behaved in the house, hasn’t destroyed anything and is house trained. Lady loves to play tag with you and loves her toys. She loves the squeaky toys and doesn’t destroy them.

Lady is frightened of thunder and sudden loud noises. She was with a family for two years, the noise level and two very active and young children were too much for Lady. She would hide under the bed for extended periods of time. So now this beautiful girl is once again looking for her forever, loving, home. We believe Lady needs a quiet and peaceful home without loud noises and screaming children. If you would like to meet Lady, email John at 4johndavide@gmail.com Don’t miss out on this great girl.

Ryder Doggie Harmony

Ryder is a 7-year old male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Doggie Harmony in Decatur, GA.

Ryder’s a happy pup who would not mind being an only dog as long as his person can give him a lot of companionship. He has lived with other dogs, but can be selective about his canine friends – he typically gets along well with smaller, calm, submissive females. His foster mom loves him to death but she already has a house full of dogs and knows Ryder needs a home where he has more one-on-one attention. He walks great on leash but will need someone who can handle a strong dog.

Ryder loves to run zoomies around the back yard then plop immediately down for a nap. Loves to wear dog sweaters. Not recommended for small children as he can get very excited when he sees his friends and family and will jump and box with his paws.

A thoroughly goofy pup. He is a very devoted dog who becomes deeply attached to his humans. He loves to go on errands in the car. LOVES to ride in any vehicle whether it’s moving or not. He would do best with someone who is home a lot or works from home. He gets anxious when left alone too long. He’s your basic homebody sort. Not at all food motivated but happily responds to the offer of a toy, praise and affection. If you’re looking for a constant, loving companion Ryder is the pup for you.
