Attention suburban homebodies! Meet London, the darling of Furkids who’s ready to become your loyal companion. London holds a special place in the hearts of our volunteers and adores nothing more than hopping into the passenger seat for a thrilling car ride. Dreaming of dining out with a furry friend by your side? Look no further than London! While she prefers to steer clear of other pups, she’s the perfect restaurant companion, charming everyone she meets. Praised for her intelligence and goofiness, London earned top marks in her training evaluation, showcasing her readiness to learn new tricks.

Despite her size, London firmly believes she’s the perfect fit for your lap, always ready for a cuddle session. With a laid-back demeanor, she enjoys leisurely walks but finds true bliss snuggled on the couch or basking in the sunshine.

All she needs now is a loving home with a cozy spot to relax and soak up the sun. If you’re seeking a devoted companion to share your suburban adventures and lazy afternoons, London is eagerly awaiting your embrace! London weighs 65 lbs. and is approximately 8 years old (est. birth date 5/28/2015). London has been spayed, is up to date on all vaccinations & preventatives, and is microchipped.

Introducing Willett, an endearing pooch awaiting her forever home at Furkids Animal Shelter.

She revels in the little pleasures of life, cherishing leisurely walks and basking in the sun’s warmth as her top pastimes. When indoors, she’s a picture of contentment, snuggled up on her bed for a serene nap. Willett is not just house-trained; she also has a charming way of expressing her needs-a soft bark to signal her desire to go outside.

This loyal companion treasures her bonds with those she holds dear, making her ideally suited for a tranquil household with minimal new faces. If you seek a devoted friend to share your couch and your heart, Willett eagerly awaits the chance to become your cherished companion.

Leo is a male Standard Poodle mix who is available for adoption from FurKids in Alpharetta, GA.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!! Meet Leo!! He came to Furkids as his owner got sick, and could not care for him. He loves being with his human, thrives on positive reinforcement, and responds well to training. He is housetrained and gets along with other dogs. His most favorite thing in his world is to play ball in the big back yard at Furkids which makes us laugh because he is so goofy, and fun loving. He walks very nicely on a leash, and enjoys going down to the park where there is a lot of action with children, dogs, and skaters. He is dog friendly, and would do well in a family with children that are 10 years or older as he weighs 53 lbs, and has a goofy funny side. He can be high energy at first, but we are currently working on him to settle, and he’s improving everyday. He has mastered SIT, and is getting better at WAITING going through doors, and his DOWN. Come meet this loveable, intelligent Standard Poodle, and give him a chance. He has SO much to offer to his human!! Leo weighs 53lbs but still needs to gain a few! Leo is approximately 1.5 years old (est. birth date 09/24/2022), and his adoption fee is $500.

Dot is a 3.5-year old female Coonhound mix who is available for adoption from the Carroll County Animal Shelter in Carrollton, GA.

This sweet and beautiful girl came to us with another dog, Atta, who has recently been adopted. Dot is very friendly but can come across as shy when she first meets you. She is much cuter than this photo can show; Dot proved to be pretty camera shy on picture day! Dot loves to be outside but she can climb a fence and does not need to be left unsupervised. While Dot did come in with another dog, a meet-n-greet is always suggested. Dot enjoys squeaky toys and walks pretty well on a leash, though she could use some work. Dot is tall but lean, weighing right at 50 lbs. We believe this is a pretty good size for her and her breed’s body style, but a few extra pounds of love wouldn’t hurt her! She is very much like a coondog and we would suggest her to a family with some knowledge on the breed. We do not suggest Dot with small animals because she does have a decently high prey drive.

Danica is an 8-month old female Feist and Hound mix puppywho is available for adoption from the Carroll County Animal Shelter in Carrollton, GA.

Danica is a sweet but shy 8 month old Feist/Hound mix. Danica came to us with her two sisters, Lindsey and Maria, after their owner’s house burned down. These three girls love affection from people and are very playful, but will need work on basic manners and leash training. Danica seems to be the more alpha of the group and the one who is more outgoing. All three of the sisters come straight over to greet everyone with excitement and tail wags! They can get a little jealous of each other over affection and food, so we do advise that these girls go to different homes. These girls still have some growing to do, but we do not believe that they will be very large breed dogs. We guess that they will stay under 50 lbs once fully grown. While they have been around other dogs in their previous home, we do suggest a meet-n-greet if you have other dogs in the home.

Cy is a 9-month old male Labrador Retriever and Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Carroll County Animal Shelter in Carrollton, GA.

Cy is a 9 month old Lab/Shepherd mix. Cy is one of four siblings, and the only girl! Her siblings are: Kershaw, Verlander, and Maddux. Cy is very loving and playful, but a bit shy at first meeting. She is more outgoing than Kershaw, who she is currently housed with. Cy is still a puppy and she will need to find a family who is willing to grow with her as she ages. She has lots of energy and will need to find a family who is okay with that. We believe Cy will stay a nice medium size when fully grown. She weighs a little under 50 lbs at 9 months old and we don’t expect her to get too much bigger. Cy loves to play with toys and enjoys being in the sunshine. While she has been around other dogs, a meet-n-greet is always suggested if you have other dogs in the home. We think Cy would make a good family pet, but she is very energetic and might knock small children down without realizing it.

Jake is a young male Vizsla & Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

This group of 11 pups was born on 11/24/23 and are just about ready for the forever homes! This litter includes 6 sisters and 5 brothers, all of whom have their own unique coloring and personalities! At this age they weigh between 8-10 pounds each, and we guess that they will likely be in the 50-80 pound range as adults.

Oh Jake, sweet sweet Jake. Everyone knows the big goofy dogs that are the biggest sweethearts but just a bit behind on what’s going on. Well that is sweet Jake. He enjoys playing with his fur and human siblings, running around and then quickly disappearing to take a nice long nap. We can very much see him being the little hound dog in the old movies asleep on the front porch greeting everyone, then off to take his nap again.

At this age, they’ve been exposed to each other and their mama, so they’re learning appropriate social cueing from each other. They have a solid foundation, but it’s up to any future adopter to continue with proper socialization in order for them to continue to fit well into any home.

Hogan is a young male Vizsla & Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Hogan is the biggest of the bunch with the personality to follow. He is always the first pup to great you when he sees you. He is always excited to play and discover new environments and toys. You can find him setting himself up in a hiding spot to surprise his siblings and snag their toy and RUN!

Gus is a young male Mountain Cur & Shar-Pei mix puppy who is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Raised by our wonderful bottle baby loving foster, Gus has been with us since before his eyes were even open! He is being raised in a foster home that houses other dogs, cats, and even some goats + chickens! Gus currently weighs in at around 9 pounds at 6 weeks old and we estimate he’ll top out around 50 pounds (but stay on the short and stocky side, we think!). That’s just a guess though, so expect more (or less).
