Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for June 1, 2021

Duke is a ten-year old male Hound and Shar Pei mix who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Duke is as sweet as can be and has quite an infectious smile. He’s pretty chill and laid back – in less there are treats involved – he gets pretty excited about those. But he’s a good boy and knows to sit and wait for it. Duke enjoys his daily walks and getting head and butt scratches and lots of attention. 

Duke and Roxy found their way to rescue when their parents were divorced.

Both Duke and Roxy are really just wonderful dogs who would be a great addition to any family. In a perfect world, they would be adopted together since they’ve been together for so long but they can also be adopted separately.

Roxy is a ten-year old female Husky mix who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Roxy has the most beautiful and unique coat with lines in it that look like you ran your fingers down her back. With lots of personality, she loves chatting it up with you, as most Husky’s do, but isn’t a howler. Roxy is also laid back and loves belly rubs and her chew toys.

When it comes to patience – [Roxy and Duke] lived with eight cats! So felines are fine for this dynamic duo, and so are other dogs, and kids too! They both get along with everyone they meet.

Sam is a year-old male Staffordshire Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Sam has lots of energy and loves to play! Especially tug-of-war. With his leash. So he will need someone strong who can handle him because he’s not a small guy. He is also very inquisitive and likes to hunt lizards and other bugs he finds, so a fenced in yard would be best for him. Unfortunately, he also thinks cats are something you can hunt, so cats are a definite No Go for this guy.

So are other dogs. While he has had one doggie friend that he came into rescue with, Sam needs to be your one and only. But you won’t need another dog because he’ll be your BFF. Seriously; Sam loves to be near you and would make a great companion! Do you like to walk? So does Sam! If you need to travel, Sam is fine with that too and does well in the car. Want to watch a movie, or need to get some work done? Sam is perfectly content relaxing and laying near you. What about a good night’s sleep? That will work for Sam too; he’s housebroken and sleeps through the night, ideally near you.

He’s not much of a barker. If something catches his eye, he’ll let you know, but he’s not one to just randomly bark at imaginary things or to excess.

Tyrone is a young male Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Augusta Animal Services in Augusta, GA.

This is Tyrone (1 1/2) and what a fun loving guy he is! When he is out for a walk he does much better using a harness, (he is a bit of a busy body also as he will stop to find out where sounds are coming from). He also seems to like to jog/run easily on his lead. He will sit (sometimes) for a treat (he is learning), he knows down on the rare occasions when he jumps. Tyrone is affectionate and gives nice hugs and kisses. His absolutely most favorite thing is to play with a toy he can throw in the air, he really, really has fun with it.

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter will waive adoption fee on May 22, according to AccessWDUN.

The preview event will take place from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., according to a press release from Forsyth County Government. During this time, potential adopters can view and interact with the available animals at the shelter. No appointment is necessary during the event.

“We have had such great success in past years with our Summer of Love adoption special that we decided to give families a sneak peek this year by waiving adoption fees a little earlier than usual and having some fun at the shelter in the process,” said Animal Shelter Manager Cindy Iacopella. “All of the pets in the shelter deserve a good home and we are hopeful that this promotion will help families bring a new companion home.”

All available pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption.

Todd is an 8-month old male Carolina Dog mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Forsyth County Animal Shelter in Cumming, GA.

Sky is a 5-year old female Hound mix who is available for adoption from the Forsyth County Animal Shelter in Cumming, GA.

Poor Sky can’t understand what happened. She tried her very best to be the most perfect companion, but in the end she wound up here. She doesn’t understand that it wasn’t her fault, she did nothing wrong. Sky is searching for a home that understands that she is going to need time to adjust and get over the loss of her first home. She would do best in a calm, quiet home with no small children. Once Sky gets comfortable, she is the sweetest little girl and she just wants to be near you. She has lived with other dogs and older kids and enjoys their company. But, since she is still adjusting, she would likely do best in a home with no young kids.

Harlow is a 5-year old female Boxer mix who is available for adoption from the Forsyth County Animal Shelter in Cumming, GA.

Meet Harlow! This sweet girl is full of energy and love to give her family. She adores attention and wants to be right by your side, whether it’s going out for a long walk or hanging out on the couch for some TV time. She has lived with children and other dogs, but she would still like to meet all of her K9 and human siblings before she goes home with them. She has had some training, but she would LOVE to learn even more! If you are looking for a loyal companion, eager to be your best friend, look no further.
