Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for August 26, 2020

James Furkids

James is a young male Labrador Retriever and Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters in Cumming, GA.

An Animal Control officer found three puppies outside and trying to survive on their own. No one came to the county shelter to claim the puppies, so Furkids stepped in to help them find forever homes. Their names are James, Jack and Justin.

These pups came to us under socialized, but they have been in a foster home learning to live inside a home and to trust humans. Each is progressing at his own pace (see individual bios for each dog’s personality).

James is the bravest of his brothers. He will let his foster mom pet him and will take treats from her hand. Here’s the best part – he will then give the treats to his brothers! He is no longer afraid of his foster and likes to hop around her and put his wet nose on her. He’s even played with her a couple of times. His foster describes him as a gregarious and gentle dog.

Samba Furkids

Samba is a young male Shepherd and Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters in Cumming, GA.

Samba had been abandoned, but luckily Animal Control found him. Soon after, Samba’s luck got ever better when Furkids brought Samba into its program. He’s a good dog who needs a forever home. Samba is a very active puppy and because of this, it is recommended that he go to a home with a fenced yard and no small children as he likes to play with his mouth. Additionally, Samba has current medical needs which could require future vet visits to manage.

Sambe was diagnosed with hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD). HOD is a bone disease that occurs in fast growing large breed dogs.

Snowy Furkids

Snowy is a young female Hound and Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters in Cumming, GA.

Snowy came to Furkids from a county Animal Control shelter. Her estimated birth date is 3/5/2020 and her adoption fee is $300.

Wilson Tri State Pet Rescue

Wilson is a male Hound mix who is available for adoption from Tri State Pet Rescue in Blue Ridge, GA.

Wilson is one of those dogs that you just cannot say anything bad about. This guy is crate and house-trained. He gets along great with other dogs, cats unknown. Although he is a hound mix, he does not bark incessantly but instead is very laid back and content to hang out with his friends. He loves to cuddle on the couch in the evening or during the day if a human is available to scratch his ears. Wilson has a fun yet gentle personality.

Scout Tri State Pet Rescue

Scout is a young 3-4 month old male Heeler mix puppy who is available for adoption from Tri State Pet Rescue in Blue Ridge, GA.

This cute, little guy is loving and playful as most puppies are. He is good with other dogs and has energy to spare. Scout is current on vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Bambi Tri State Pet Rescue

Bambi is a 3-year old, 7-pound female Dachshund mix who is available for adoption from Tri State Pet Rescue in Blue Ridge, GA.

Bambi is a snuggle bug once she bonds with her person and trusts them. This cute little girl has personality to spare and a happy, wagging tail. However, new situations and people scare her. A fenced yard is necessary for her because if she were to get scared it might be impossible to catch her. Bambi’s ideal home would be one where she has someone around most of the time. One with no small children is best as they scare her. This girl is fine with other dogs but is more comfortable with those that are closer to her size. If you a searching for a best friend, Bambi would make a great one!

The Albany City Commission is considering revisions to their dangerous dog ordinance, according to the Albany Herald.

One of the proposed changes to the ordinance would increase the amount of the insurance coverage required for owners of dogs deemed dangerous or potentially dangerous. Currently the ordinance requires $15,000 each in liability insurance and surety bonds for dogs in that category.

Under the changes presented during a Tuesday meeting held in a virtual format, Ward IV Commissioner Chad Warbington suggested changing the requirement to $100,000 in liability insurance coverage. Commissioners could vote on proposed changes at their Aug. 25 meeting.

Emory is five months old. He has a beautiful rich brown and white coat. His eyes look like they’re laughing and his tail is always wagging. Emory is already working with several uber volunteers and trainers. Emory loves people and has a very friendly personality. It seems that Emory is all puppy.

Piper Charles Smithcall Humane

Piper is a senior female German Shepherd dog who is available for adoption from the Charles Smithgall Humane Society and Adoption Center for Sautee Nacoochee, GA.

Piper is a beautiful purebred German shepherd. She’s a senior girl at 10 years old. She is blind. Piper gets around very well though and relies on voices or presence to know where her person is or doggie friend is. Piper was in danger of being euthanized. In our opinion no dog deserves to die just because she’s old and blind. That’s when they need us the most! Her personality is terrific. She’s easy-going, just a love of a dog. She’s in good health, but does need daily enzyme powder on her food to ensure that she’s able to process it, but it’s easy to manage.

I spent several years leading around a blind senior Shepherd mix and it was one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever done.

Mindy AJ Charles Smithgall Humane

Mindy (small, female, Cattle Dog/Heeler mix) and AJ (large, male, Hound mix) are a bonded pair of dogs who are available for adoption from the Charles Smithgall Humane Society and Adoption Center in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.

AJ is a wonderful older dog. He’s a seven-year-old hound/shepherd mix. He’s a larger dog, but he moves gracefully and calmly so don’t let his size fool you. He has beautiful manners. He’s calm, sweet and very friendly. He’s a lower energy sort of guy and prefers to relax with his people and his best friend Mindy. AJ walks well on a leash and he knows basic commands.

AJ is happy to go along to get along. He’s just a big love bug who will make for someone’s best companion. He’s very low-key, but loves to see what Mindy is up to and happily follows her around. AJ and Mindy are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. The way they depend on each other, it’s like a seamless ballet. Each dog brings out the best in the other and together they are probably less effort then having one dog, because they complement each other so well.

Mindy relies on AJ for comfort and security and AJ loves to be where Mindy is. Adopting this pair may be easier than having an only dog. Mindy is an Australian Cattle dog mix. She’s about five years old and of medium size.

They’re recent arrivals and we have yet to test them with other dogs or cats, but will do so for potential adopters. Our guess is they could be house-trained, because they are so polite and smart, but it may take some remedial training since they have been without a home for a little while now.

AJ is exceptional. He seems to be the quintessential family dog. It’s crazy to think he and Mindy ended up homeless. We have no idea of their back story, but they are a delightful pair who would make for a great addition to any family willing to open their hearts and home to them.

AJ Charles Smithgall Humane

Flower Charles Smithgall Humane

Flower is a 49-pound female Labrador Retriever and Terrier mix who is available for adoption from the Charles Smithgall Humane Society and Adoption Center in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.

This sweet girl, Flower, is as beautiful as her name suggests. Since arriving, Flower has been a wonderful guest. She’s a sweet, sweet dog. She’s a one-year old Labrador/Terrier mix. She has a beautiful chocolate and white short coat, a well-shaped lab head, warm brown eyes and a happy grin. 

Flower seems to love being with other dogs and she is cat friendly, if not a little shy with them. She has a solid personality and is quietly confident. She loves being in the play yards where she can run and romp or simply lay in the sun.

Lacey Charles Smithgall Humane

Lacey is a young female Labrador Retriever and Australian Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Charles Smithgall Humane Society and Adoption Center in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.

This gorgeous girl, Lacey, is absolutely incredible. She is pure delight and love. She’s about six months old. She has a beautiful black coat with a little bit of white. She has a wonderful personality. She’s sweet and affectionate, a little submissive, but we’re working on bringing her confidence level up with lots of love and kindness. She is even-keeled and joyful.

Lacey loves to run and play in the yard. She can entertain herself, but she really loves playing with her new yard mate, Andy. The two of them run and chase each other.
