Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for July 6, 2020

Big Sky PAWS Atlanta

Big Sky is a young male Hound mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

Cash Money PAWS Atlanta

Cash Money is a young male Jack Russell Terrier mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

Butter PAWS Atlanta

Butter is a male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

When Butter smiles at us, and he smiles at us a lot, everything feels right with the world. He’s a sleek, athletic, wildly-smart guy who is looking for a kindred spirit human. At 4, Butter bonds quickly with people who will spend time with him, engage him, and really get him. He is so crazy intelligent, he craves a job, or something to do – whether it’s training, or playing fetch in the yard, or going for a run together. Doesn’t matter. He needs that sense of purpose and connection.

Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for July 3, 2020

Swain BarkVille Dog Rescue

Swain is a 7-year old, 50-pound male Jack Russell Terrier & Australian Shepherd Mix who is available for adoption from BarkVille Dog Rescue in Roswell, GA.

Swain was picked up as a stray in Cherokee County and his future looked bleak until BarkVille was able to step in and place him in a wonderful foster home where he is putting on weight and regaining his strength. His foster mom says Swain is an inquisitive, quiet, snuggler who is good on a leash, knows basic commands, and likes to maneuver his blankets with his paws & teeth to make himself a pillow! He is a medium energy boy who likes playing fetch and destroying balls & toys in the yard (kongs recommended). He is housebroken, crate trained, neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Swain is HW+ and is currently available for a foster-to-adopt situation until his HW treatment is complete and he is medically cleared for adoption.

Neely BarkVille Dog Rescue

Neely is a 2-year old, 58-pound female Terrier and Boxer mix who is available for adoption from BarkVille Dog Rescue in Roswell, GA.

Neely is a calm, cuddly, medium energy dog who was taken from an unlivable hoarding situation and has proven herself to be a very good girl. She gets excited when her foster mom comes home from work and is willing to do anything to please her people. She is a solid, chunky little low rider and needs a forever family without young children (teens are fine) because she plays hard & can knock a small child over when she jumps with joy. She also needs to be an only pet because she does not like other dogs in her space. She loves to take walks, is working on her leash manners daily, and does well with corrections when structure is given. She loves treats and will accept them gently from your hand in a sitting position.

Bella Rose BarkVille Dog Rescue

Bella Rose is a 3-year old, 39-pound female Cairn Terrier mix who is available for adoption from BarkVille Dog Rescue in Roswell, GA.

Bella Rose was picked up as a stray, but we believe she may have been someone’s pet because she has beautiful house manners and is friendly & obedient. She likes people of all ages, knows basic commands, is eager to please, and takes corrections well. She is a typical scrappy little terrier, but she gets anxious when she sees other dogs and she has scars on her back that suggest she may have been attacked by another dog in the past. She has a high prey drive so she’s looking for an only dog home with no cats or possibly a home with larger, well balanced dogs that she could coexist with after slow introductions. She is nervous & reactive on walks and has received professional training to address this behavior, but she needs a strong leader who will continue working with her to build trust so she feels safe.

Nana Furever Match Dallas GA

Nana is a female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Furever Match Inc in Dallas, GA.

My name is Nana. I’m heartbroken that my family left me behind to die in a shelter. I lived my whole life with them and loved them so much… I’m sure they must have had a good reason. I am a sweet girl that is fully vetted and crate trained. I may not be the youngest girl out there but the doctor says I have many good years left. I would love a family to love unconditionally! Maybe I’ll get lucky enough to find someone to curl up by a fire with. Could that be you? Please say it is…

A dog has tested positive for the novel Coronavirus, according to the Capitol Beat News Service via the Savannah Morning News.

The state Department of Public Health said Wednesday a six-year-old mixed breed was tested for coronavirus after developing a fatal neurological condition. The agency did not say where the dog resided.

The dog was tested after its owners also tested positive for the virus and was euthanized due to the neurological condition, which was unrelated to COVID-19, according to the agency.

Pets and wild animals do not pose a significant threat to spreading COVID-19 among humans, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Research is still being done on how easily the virus can spread from humans to animals.

Health experts advise people who contract COVID-19 to avoid touching their pets and have a relative or friend take care of them.

He will play fetch all day if you let him. He prefers sleeping in a dog bed or on your bed at night. Hank is looking for an inside home with an active family who has a fenced yard.

Athens-Clarke County Animal Services is seeking foster homes for the Independence Day weekend, according to the Athens Banner Herald.

Fireworks are traumatic for many animals, including pets, so the Animal Services department is making an extra push to get animals into foster homes that weekend.

The event is especially worrisome for the adoption center’s dogs; most of the shelter’s kennels are outdoors.

Foster pickups will be scheduled on Thursday and Friday, with returns set for Sunday and Monday. Animal Services will be closed, Saturday, July 4.

Fostered animals are current on rabies vaccine and spayed or neutered if they are old enough.

For more information contact volunteer coordinator Selah Gardiner at selah.gardiner@acc.gov.com or 706-613-3540.

More information is also at the Animal Services web page.

August, a Golden Retriever aka Augie, is the oldest known dog of her breed, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post.

There have been accounts of goldens living to 17 or 18, and even a few stories about 19-year-old goldens, but Augie is the first to reach 20, according to Golden Hearts, the blog that first shared the dog’s story.

The GoldHeart Golden Retrievers Rescue in Maryland confirmed the news, writing in a Faceook post that Augie is the “oldest known, oldest living Golden Retriever!”

On April 24, Augie celebrated her 20th birthday with her humans, Jennifer and Steve Hetterscheidt, and her three furry siblings at their home in Oakland, Tennessee.

Augie was adopted by the Hetterscheidts when she was 14 after being rehomed twice. Jennifer Hetterscheidt was working at a golden retriever rescue organization in Nevada as the intake director. As soon as she laid eyes on Augie, she fell in love, she said.

While Augie was already a senior dog when she was adopted, that didn’t stop her and her family from taking road trips across the country and spending entire summers at the pool.

Charlie Adopt A Golden Atlanta

Charlie is a senior male Golden Retriever who is available for adoption from Adopt A Golden Atlanta in Atlanta, GA.

Hi Everyone!!! My name is Charlie. I’m a big fluffy and very handsome 12 year old Golden Retriever. I have had a very interesting life so far. I spent the first several years of my life as a Border Patrol dog!!! It’s not easy being in law enforcement. I had to be very serious all the time and constantly be on watch. As a result, I’m not your typical goofy Golden.

It takes me some time to get to know people, so you must be patient with me as I become familiar with you. In my line of work, I had to be on guard all the time, so since I have retired those old habits are tough to break.

I’m looking for a forever home where I can spend my retirement, taking it easy in the peace and quiet. I’m not crazy about other dogs so I would need a home where I am an only dog. I do like cats though!!! I need a tall fence and no children in the home. I had so much excitement as a border patrol dog I am looking to find a quiet home without a lot of commotion and visitors. I can be left alone for a little while if you need to go out for a bit. If visitors do come over, I can go into my own room and be quiet too!

Rusty Humane Society Morgan County GA

Rusty is an eight-year old male Golden Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Morgan County in Madison, GA.

Rusty is a mature gentleman of simple needs and few demands. Rusty like all Goldens loves human companionship and will be happiest when he’s in your company. If you want to experience on of life’s most rewarding blessing consider adopting a senior!!! Rusty may be the man for you!

Duxi Circle of Friends Animal Society

Duxi is a male Golden Retriever and Dachshund mix who is available for adoption from Circle of Friends Animal Society in Greensboro, GA.

Duxi is roughly 36 pounds and 4 yrs old. He has the short legs and body of a dachshund but the long hair coloring and face of a golden. We know for a fact that his dad was a dachshund mix so we are assuming his mom must have been some sort of golden mix. He is a friendly boy and good with other dogs but we have not had the opportunity to see how he reacts to children.

Duxi is basically house trained but he does do some marking. He tested a light positive for heartworms so he has been started on Heartgard and 30 days of doxycycline. Normally 6 months of Heartgard will produce a negative on heartworm tests but there is the possibility that he will need further treatment.
