Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for January 26, 2022

Woofie Goodburg is a female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Renegade Paws Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Woofie Goodburg is good with all other dogs. She is crate trained but prefers to be free. She plays well with others. She can be a little pushy to play but if a dog tells her no she will leave them alone. She LOVES to run and play but loves snuggles and full body hugs too. She would prefer to sleep in the bed with you. She is people friendly to everyone. She loves to go on adventures and rides well in the car. She does well on a leash. Potty trained. Will go to the door to be let out.

China is a young female Chihuahua mix puppy who is available for adoption from Renegade Paws Rescue in Savannah, GA.

China who is believed to be about 5 months old, is a precious spunky redhead chihuahua mix that came to us found by a good Samaritan out in Tatnall County. She was found along a road that is known for dumping unwanted dogs and puppies. She loves to play and be a leader. China is always watching what is going on around her and pays attention to everything going on. She will even watch you sleep, maybe it is just to make sure you are ok or maybe fearful of being left alone again. She does have a little separation anxiety but is beyond happy when you return from either work or being out and assure her that she is now where she belongs. Crate training is going well and potty training also. She has been spayed and vaccinated. She definitely is a little diva and deserves to be spoiled and loved. 

Gordo is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Renegade Paws Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Gordo is a lab around 3 months old. Full of energy and love. Anytime you pick him up he tries to kiss your face off! He is doing absolutely great in his crate and hasn’t had a single accident yet! He recently made friends with the neighbors cat who looks like him he may be confused.

Queen of Hearts is a 3-year old, 57-pound female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Fulton County Animal Services in Atlanta, GA.

Her favorite toys are ropes & bones and she loves prancing around showing off her toys and emptying the toy basket.

Daisy Mae
is a two-year old, 35-pound female German Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Daisy has come such a long way since living in her foster home. Daisy is silly, sweet, and cuddly. Her favorite thing is taking long walks around the neighborhood. She has perfect leash manners! Daisy thrives with routine, where she knows what to expect and what’s expected of her. Daisy is house-trained, crate trained, not destructive, good with cats, and so worth the time it takes to get to know her. She loves to run in the yard with her friends.

Ajay is a 2-year old, 50-pound male Pointer mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Ajay is doing fantastic with leash training. He does great in his crate at night. He plays well with other dogs. Ajay would not be good with cats in the house. Ajay needs a home with no young children. He will need someone that will give him a good balance of exercise and continuing his training. He does get over stimulated at times outside the house but we are working on that.

Schwarber is a young male Labrador Retriever and Pointer mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Schwarber is a sweet 9-month-old boy that weighs around 50 lbs. His foster family has been working very hard to teach him how to balance his puppy tendencies with acceptable behavior. He would benefit from an adoptive family that also has experience raising a puppy and the training that comes along with it. Schwarber loves to cuddle. If he can’t find a human willing to cuddle with him, he will accept a canine friend as a second choice. He loves his toys, will hoard them and then lay in the middle of his pile throwing them in the air and rubbing his scent on them. Schwarber would do well in a home with another active dog (or no dog) and older children. Cats would not enjoy Schwarber’s company. Schwarber is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations and crate and house trained.

Tilda is a young female Doberman Pinscher and Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Tilda is right around 3 months old. We aren’t positive of her breed, but our best guess is Doberman Pinscher. She has a velvety smooth coat, and a triangular shaped head, long legs and a slender body. At 3 months old, she weighs about 20 pounds, so we feel that she may be 50-60 pounds when grown. She has a bubbly, friendly personality. She plays with all of the dogs….and the cat! She has never met a stranger! Tilda is crate trained. She sits for her meals and is learning manners, but she does like to chew wires! She is, after all, a puppy! She is super smart and will take to training very easily!

Pica Pepper is a young female Labrador Retriever and Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Starlight is a sweet senior female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Hero Dog Rescue in Cumming, GA.

Starlight is an absolute delight! She is a typical senior dog that loves to nap, but also loves to get petted and wag her tail. Starlight is completely housebroken and quickly learned how to use a doggy door. She enjoys trotting and sniffing around the yard! She is also great on a leash. Starlight tends to ignore cats and other dogs smaller than her.

Starlight will need to eat soft/canned food. She is only 23 lbs and will need to gain several. She doesn’t bark at all and is partially deaf. Starlight would be a great addition to a quieter house seeking a perfect companion dog. She has been a great shadow to us, always wanting to sleep in a dog bed nearby.

Six-month old Labradoodle Hank has a new job as a Therapy Dog at Forsyth County Senior Services Center, according to AccessWDUN.

“Just a couple of days ago, I had a lady come in, it was her first time meeting Hank and she’s petting him smiling and she said, ‘Hank, I love you,’” said Hunter Bennett, Community Relations person for Forsyth County Senior Services and Hank’s handler. “In our memory support program, we had a gentleman in there that was petting [Hank] one day and he looks at me with clarity in his eyes and he tells me that his grandfather had a dog just like Hank.”

Naturally, everyone at the senior center loves Hank. Visitors and staff will scratch Hank’s head, ears, and happily receive some doggie kisses.

Last year, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office announced seven Labradoodle puppies were making their way through the Forsyth County Pups with Purpose program.

Hank was one of those pups.

“By the time I got Hank, he had already had so much love poured into him,” said Bennett. “There were two different times on the day I picked him up from the jail that I thought people were going to cry, talking about how special he was.”

The Pups with Purpose program pairs inmates at the Forsyth County Jail with unwanted dogs from the Forsyth County Animal Shelter.

Inmates train the dogs for the purpose of helping them to find a home. But Hank and his six siblings were trained for a higher purpose- to serve as therapy dogs at government buildings, schools and even a hospital.

“We actually just yesterday completed our beginner obedience class, which I think is mostly for me as handler than it is him,” Bennett said, chuckling. “We’re now going to be moving on to an advanced obedience course, and that is being conducted through Scot Rucker Dog Training.”

Dolly, my Hound who inspired the legislation naming the Adoptable Dog as the Official State Dog of Georgia, trained as a therapy dog. We hoped she’d be able to visit patients at the Hospice Atlanta facility in our neighborhood. She failed the final exam. Vacuum cleaners remain on her list of enemies.

More information on the Forsyth County Pups with Purpose program are available at their website.
