Meet Alan! Alan is an 8-9 year old basset hound-american bulldog mix who weighs 45 lbs. Like a typical basset, he’s low energy, loves to use his nose, and enjoys taking his time to enjoy life.
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but Alan would beg to differ. He lived most of his life as an outside dog, and used to mark when indoors. After a little extra training and being neutered, Alan has learned that it’s only okay to go potty outdoors. He signals by going to the front door, and still enjoys relaxing outside. Alan has also mastered kennel training; he will go into his kennel on command – no treat needed, but he does appreciate getting one! He’s good about being kenneled when Foster Mom is home but protests when left by himself.
Alan gets along really well with other dogs, and enjoys the occasional game of chase with them! He lives in a feline-friendly home, and mostly ignores that they’re there.
Welcome Hayley! Hayley is the pup that everyone wants. She’s a great size at 28 lbs and 8 months old. She’s got a low-key demeanor, loves to snuggle, and loves playing with other dogs!
Hayley is potty trained and kennel trained! She hasn’t had any accidents in the home, and keeps her kennel clean while in it. Hayley already goes into her kennel on her own, and doesn’t even need the encouragement of food to go in there! She stays mostly quiet while in the home – except for the occasional bark to let Foster Mom know that there is someone at the door. Hayley is working on building up her confidence, and Foster Mom is starting to teach some general commands to Hayley.
Hayley is good with other dogs! She is especially playful with Foster Mom’s smaller dogs. Hayley can be initially shy when meeting new dogs and people, but warms up quickly. Hayley was able to hang out with some children at a recent adoption event, and stayed calm and well-behaved while hanging out with them.
Welcome Kara! Kara is out of the puppy stage of life but still young at 3 years old and weighing just under 50lbs. Kara must be in a feline free home, but she is doing great with her new doggy foster-siblings.
Looking for a dog that is already kennel trained and housebroken? Kara has both of those down, and will even go into her kennel on command. However, Foster Mom has left Kara out of her kennel a few times while she was gone, and Kara was well behaved the entire time. Kara has very good house manners, and is very respectful of those around her.
Kara is canine-friendly! She is a little shy with new dogs, but she warms up to them once she realizes the other dogs want to be friends. Kara is wary of new people and kids, but once you’re part of her pack she loves to hang out and get attention from you! She especially loves playing ball with her person, and after that or a short walk Kara will be content to lounge around the rest of the day.
Don’t let his name fool you; Rowdy is very calm and friendly. This Coon Hound sweetie will warm your heart with his floppy ears and slobbery kisses. He loves attention, playing outside, and children. Rowdy is a playful guy who may need some basic training, but he walks fairly well on a leash. If you are looking for a big lovable dog, this could be your guy.
Hudson is a handsome man with a lot of swag. He’s the perfect mix of a walking buddy and porch dog that will gladly hang out all day long. He walks well on a leash and knows a few tricks, but there is always room for improvement! Hudson seems to do well with most people, but would need a meet n greet for younger children. However, he does not do well with other animals, so he would need to be the only fur baby in the house. Swing by and say hi to Hudson today! You might just find your new best friend!
This old guy is just as sweet as his namesake, and he’s also happy to comfort you on a bad day…without adding inches to your waistline! Chocolate is a 10-year-old chocolate lab mix with tender eyes that will surely melt your heart with a single glance. He’s a quiet, relaxed, and refined gentleman who prefers to spend the majority of his time in the cool air conditioning while lazing with his human companion(s). Because Chocolate’s temperament is so subdued, he seems to do quite well with children of all ages, cats, and other dogs, though a standard meet-and-greet is still recommended if there are other fur-babies in your home. If you have a sweet-tooth and you’re looking for a sweet-heart to bring home, come by and meet Chocolate today!
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is asking Georgia to outlaw aerial, exploding fireworks, according to AccessWDUN.
A Georgia farmer says his beloved miniature donkey named Sammy was literally scared to death by this year’s Fourth of July fireworks. Now he and an animal rights group want Georgia to ban rockets that go boom.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wrote to Gov. Brian Kemp, House Speaker David Ralston and others Wednesday asking for a “Sammy’s law” limiting fireworks to the non-explosive, non-aerial varieties.
John Bogino tells WGCL-TV that Sammy and his other farm animals are like pets to him. His pet donkey of 22 years died last month, and he says Sammy wasn’t his first animal to die because of fireworks. He says one of his horses fled explosions in late July several years ago and had to be euthanized due to severe injuries.
