Piper was pulled from a local shelter. She's a sweet girl, about 2-3, on the small side. She's HW positive and will begin treatment shortly. We will update her bio when we learn more about her.
This week of Thanksgiving, we are thankful for our new rescue family member - this handsome young man is named Ranger! He's almost 8 months old, and he came to us via a middle Georgia shelter. He was surrendered because he had too much puppy energy, but we love his active and inquisitive nature!
This boy is sweet as can be and loves to follow his family and fellow pack members around while learning the ropes. He is submissive and has played well with every dog he's met, big or small.
Ranger needs a home that will help him continue to learn his manners while he grows up, and a home that will keep him active. Older kids in the home (8+) would be the best fit for Ranger right now with his high energy level. It would also probably be best to have another active dog his own age in the home, as he loves to run and play! We are not sure how he will do with cats, he has not lived with them.
Bailey is from a local shelter she is about 2-3 also, but is HW negative! Once she settles in to her foster home, and we know more about her, we'll be taking applications. We will update her bio when we learn more.
Our newest rescue dog comes from rural Walker County shelter, in far north GA. Her name is Dixie, and she is about 2. She's a sweet, pretty girl.
Dixie is one of those dogs who needs a Guardian Angel, and we were it. Besides being HW positive, she was infested with worms and is very thin and weak. When we got her to our vet, an ACL tear was diagnosed, and she will need surgery. Some of you may be familiar with ACL surgery, it's a knee injury and will require up to a couple months of restricted activity for Dixie. Our vet can do the surgery, and once she is a little stronger, we can begin her treatment.
Our preliminary estimate would be about $2000, for everything she needs. Since it is near the end of this year, we have don't have a fundraiser planned to help fund Dixie's care, and our funds are getting low, since we have other sick and injured dogs in foster care right now.
Hey! It's Minka! I will be ready for adoption in early December! If you remember, I came to the rescue with a badly injured leg and I've been working hard on rehabilitation following surgery.
My foster dad thinks I need to go to a home that I would be the only pet - I like being the center of attention! With that being said my foster dad thinks I need to go to a home where my owner will be around a lot. I don't care if he or she is busy while they are there I just like to lay next to them! I truly just love their presence.
I do have manners so when my owner does leave me I don't have to be crated. I like to play hide and go seek and figure out different tasks. I am a pretty fast learner and thoroughly enjoy being given new tasks to learn and accomplish. My foster dad thinks that my perfect home would have at least one person home all of the time or most of the time, someone who will give me lots of love and attention, someone willing to walk me and take me to the park, and someone to cuddle with. I'd love to meet you so get your applications in today!
Minka is only about 1 year old. Thanks to all the supporters who contributed to give Minka the life she deserves!
Meet Kobe (as in steak or Laker), our new foster dog!
Kobe is about 6 months old and came to us through the Fulton County shelter. He is a lot of dog for such a small guy and will need a home with the time and patience to keep him active, give him structure, and continue his training. Like most puppies that end up in shelters, Kobe's previous owners did not research the amount of time and cost involved in raising and socializing a puppy.
Kobe is learning the ropes in his foster home. He loves people, and has lots of energy, as a typical puppy does. He is living with other GSDs now, male and female, and gets plenty of playtime. A home as an only dog or with a large dog who is just as active as he is a best fit. We are not sure how he'd do with cats, he has not lived with them. Kobe has not lived with children. Due to his high energy level, he may be too strong to be around smaller kids.
Kobe is young and active. He will need lots of daily exercise such as running, hiking, swimming or other sports. He'd also do well with a job to keep him busy such as search and rescue, agility, or therapy dog.
Kobe knows some basic commands but will need an owner with the time and resources to continue his training. Kobe is housebroken, neutered and up to date on vet care.
If you'd like to meet Kobe, please fill out an adoption application.
My name is Ella (but my human Mom calls me Ellie Belly.) About this time last year, my human Dad and Mom worked with the German Shepherd Dog Rescue Group of Georgia and adopted me, my Mom had always wanted a German Shepherd dog. I live out in the country with lots of space to run around and I am a little spoiled if I say so myself.
I have been very happy and was much loved by my human family.Unfortunately, my human Dad passed away very unexpectedly and my human Mom is not able to give me all the activity I need due to her own health condition.She has been talking to me over the past few weeks trying to decide what to do.It is breaking her heart to let me go to another family, but she told me that she loves me so much that she would rather see me in a home and with a family that can give me all I need.I know I will miss her a whole lot but I have a big….big….big heart and I know that I can love my new family just as much.
Let me tell you a little bit about me.I am about 3-1/2 to 4 years old and in very good health.I need an active home.I love to take lots of walks, fetch a tennis ball, play tug-of-war etc.I like to chew on bones, antlers and all types of doggie toys but I NEVER chew on anything that belongs to my human family.I have a good appetite and usually will eat anything that is put in front of me.I love people and like to be pet and brushed as often as I can get it.My human Mom thinks it is very funny when she is sitting on the floor and I crawl onto her lap and sit down.She says that I am a little too big to be a lap dog but I don’t think so.I get along good with other dogs (mostly males) and I have to be the Alpha dog.I get along OK with cats as well. I have met children, but have not lived with them. The one issue that my human Mom is working with me on is letting her know when I need to go outside……I do have “accidents” inside still.
I am a very sweet girl with a lot of love in my heart to give a new family who is looking for looking for a dog like me to become a member of their family.
Hi Everyone! I’m Ike. I came to rescue from Fulton County, after being found abandoned in a warehouse. At the time I was a skinny 82 lbs. Now, I’m going through Heartworm treatment and getting healthy and gaining weight. I cannot wait to be a part of your home forever. I will unconditionally love my family. My fosters describe me as a “love bug”. I won’t let you out of my sight. I promise. I follow my foster family members everywhere they go. I will be alright as an only dog or with other dogs and I don’t like cats. I’ve been very lucky to have several foster sisters and a foster brother. Two of my foster siblings were German Shepherds and the other a min pin. We’ve all shared our rescue stories. I like to go for walks and car rides and will like to go with you anywhere you go. I am good walking on a leash and know some commands, like sit and come. I cannot wait to finish my heartworm treatment and join you in your home forever.
Ike should be ready for adoption around September 2015. He is a well behaved dog, he doesn’t get on furniture, sleeps in or out of the bedroom, is house trained and does not like to be in a crate. He will do well as a single dog or with other dogs. He is good with both small and large dogs and will probably prefer to be in a home with another female dog v. male or as the only dog; and, no cats. He will also do well in either a city or suburban environment; and, while he likes to go outside he prefers to be with his person and should not be left alone outside. He likes all people and all attention. His still a young dog and likes to play. He is full of love.
Lady: Adoption Pending & Bear: Available
Meet our 2 new family members, Bear & Lady. Lady is the lighter color dog. Both were rescued from Fulton County shelter and have completed Heartworm treatment. Look how cute they are riding together.
Bear is settling in to his foster home, and we will have an update in a couple weeks. He gets a long with dogs but we are not sure about cats. He will need a home with some GSD experience to help work on his manners and socialization.
