Micky is a tall boy that walks well on a leash and listens obediently. Micky is a chatty boy that likes to have a job to do patrolling the premises. Mickey rides well in a car and has a serious, thoughtful demeanor that can be misconstrued as slightly intimidating on first meeting… we think, however, that he is more likely solving the world’s problems. Mickey enjoys calm sort of family life and is generally agreeable and thoughtful. When he is very happy, his smile is contagious! This is a good boy, for sure.
Peggy is a spitfire, inquisitive, adventurous pinup of a girl that loves to explore, catch frogs, and eat. Peggy walks well on a leash and rides well in a car. She prefers to ride shotgun, in a car, and in the ride of life. She does well at the vet’s office and is fearless and independent in every situation. Peggy has all of the stubborn and intelligent traits of a dachshund. She is very smart and knows how to sit and wait on command. Training her to do more commands would do well both for her mental aspect and to bond with her.
Mr. Virgil (above and below) is a 3-5 year old, 15-pound rat terrier mix who is available for adoption from Angels Among Us.
My foster parents found me wandering around their neighborhood in Athens, Georgia. They tried really hard to find my former family-they notified animal control, checked for a microchip and posted lots of signs. So I’m now looking for a new home. My foster parents think I am part terrier and part Chihuahua and totally cute.
I tend to be afraid of new people, at first, and I bark (loudly!) to show them I’m scared and need some time to warm up. However, within about 5 minutes, I am wagging my tail and seeking attention (I love treats). Food is the way to my heart.
Other than when I am scared, I am very quiet and rarely bark or whine. I love the elementary-aged children in my foster family and I like to play with their 10-month old, high-energy puppy. Although, he likes to play more frequently than I do! When I am not playing with my foster brother or with toys, I am usually very chill and love my crate.
I would be most comfortable in a home with another medium energy doggie brother or sister about my size; big dogs frighten me. I have not been around cats very much, but I don’t seem to care one way or another about the neighborhood cats that come near my yard. Older children are preferred due to my excitement when playing as I can become a little mouthy. I’m doing well with my house training, but I am not 100% there.
I do best with patience and love. I need help to get through my fear of meeting new humans and bigger dogs.
Note: Mr. Virgil is currently fostered in Athens, but is adoptable through the Atlanta-based Angels Among Us.
Finster (aka Finn) is a 55-pound male Golden Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Angels Among Us in Atlanta, GA.
Hi, my name is Finster (Finn). I am a fluffy one year old Golden Retriever/ Lab mix. I am 55 pounds and need to gain a little more! I like running around outside and need a home where I can be active. I like relaxing with my pack just as much as I love playing. I’m a big lap dog, love to snuggle, and give wet kisses!
I am housetrained and I’m really good on a leash. I’m still learning a few manners though. Sometimes, I play bite, and I jump when I’m excited, and occasionally I like to carry around my foster family’s belongings if they don’t have a close eye on me. So, for now, I stay in a crate when my foster family has to leave the house.
I get a little anxious about it and I don’t particularly care for a crate, but I’m working on it. I need a family where someone is home most of the day.
I’m very smart and learn quick! I learned to sit, shake, and lay down in the past month.
SallyAnn is a perfect puppy! She weighs about 10 pounds at 10 weeks old. Foster mommy thinks she will get to about 35-40 lbs, but she could surprise you in what she ends up. She acts like a puppy, chewing, playing with dogs and people, learning where to pee and poop, and living the puppy life. She is likely a mix of some fluffy black dog and maybe some other blackish dog. However, we can confirm both parents were definitely dogs.

Minnie was rescued with her brother Mickey from a shelter in South Georgia after they were taken from owner by animal control. Sweet Minnie has a leg injury as a result of falling, then hanging from an outside balcony where they were both tied up. Minnie is a snuggler that loves to have fun despite her injury!
Lee is a cute 2 year old, 60 pound lab/hound mix that was picked up at the shelter as a stray. He is a little apprehensive at first but once he realizes you are not going to hurt him his personality turns on and he is down- right silly and adorable. He is in playgroups with other dogs and seems to be housetrained and well-behaved in his room.
Hi everyone, I’m Mikey! My siblings (Arleen & Sharon) and I have had quite an adventure in our young lives. We were born sometime in late July in South Georgia, ended up in a shelter at just five weeks old and then found our way north to safety. We are now living together in a loving foster home while looking for our forever families. I would love for my new family to have lots of time to show me the good life, love and care for me and teach me all I need to know to become a great dog and long-time companion.
