The sad reality is that
four million dogs
are killed each year in shelters. Why, in a country
of dog lovers, are so many dogs homeless? Won't you please help us
break the cycle...educate, spay and neuter and in the meantime open
your heart and your home to foster or adoption.
It is vital to Mutt Madd-ness
that we receive support financially, emotionally and in our struggle
to see laws passed that protect animals from an end like so many of
these experience. If everyone could reach out, even if it is for

** GUEST DOG ** LUCY
WE NEED HELP
Lucy is a 5
year old hound mix, the family has had her since she was
rescued at 4 months. Sadly, they have made the decision
to re-home due to baby concerns. We are not here to
judge, we are here to see that Lucy has the life she
family: Lucy is sweet, loving and can be docile. Crate
trained and potty trained. Knows sit, stay and shake and
has had obedience training. She is spayed and fully

Frida ran out of gas.... Frida is a black
and white, mixed breed pup. Our guess is that she is a
lab/boxer mix. She was found at a gas station, pregnant.
We believe that this was Frida's first litter of pups
(and last!) and she was a fabulous mom. Now that her
puppies are weaned, Frida needs a forever home too! Her
foster family has enjoyed having this sweet girl in
their home. She is potty trained, good with other dogs,
great with kids, playful yet gentle, and a great
companion. She is about 45lbs and 2 yrs old. She isn't
destructive and is a quite girl. Frida loves to snuggle
with both her humans and doggie foster siblings. If you
are looking for a great, easy, already trained dog that
has the whole package, come meet Frida!!
Adult, Female, Medium
Frida and Reef are pals!
Reef is a brown and tan, mixed breed
girl. We think she is a hound/retriever mix. She was
rescued from a high kill shelter while pregnant. She was
an expert mom and took wonderful care of her babies. Now
that her babies are ready for their forever homes, Reef
wants a forever home too. Her foster family describes
her as: shy yet sweet, devoted, gentle, loyal, and once
she bond and warms up she is playful. She loves play
with her squeaky balls and can even fetch! She
absolutely loves other dogs and would thrive in a home
with doggie siblings. She is potty trained, good with
everyone she had met, and a true bonded companion. We
think Reef is 4 or 5 yrs old. Sometime it takes her a
little while to get used to her new surroundings, but
once she does, she is devoted for life! If Reef sounds
like the dog for you, contact us to set up a visit!

WINTER | 5 year old
Staffordshire Terrier | F
she is a 5 year old purebred Staffordshire Terrier. She
is a sweet and loving girl who loves attention and belly
rubs. She plays well with others at daycare in a
supervised situation but prefers to be the "only dog in
the home". She is crate trained and often finds comfort
there but will sleep all night next to your bed on hers.
She knows sit, stay, come, kennel up and more. She loves
knuckle bones and frozen kongs with peanut butter and
treats inside. She does great on a leash and love walks
but is REALLY great at being a couch potato too! If you
are looking for a loyal. loving lady Winter is your gal.
This beautiful mama dog and her pups were
rescued from living in the woods.
Zuzu is a very affectionate dog with a
wonderful temperament. Zuzu took exceptional care of all her
babies keeping them alive, safe and healthy! All of her
babies have been adopted to wonderful families.
ADELE | 1 year old |
We were so elated when we were able to
save Adele from a local shelter. She was pregnant and
had started delivering at the shelter. She delivered a
puppy during transport and once she was in her foster
home she delivered 7 more babies, a total of 11. For the
first few days the babies seemed fine - we posted
adorable photos of mom and babies.
We knew Adele came to us not feeling well, but we
were providing her the recommended care she needed to
help her and support her babies. Sadly the babies
started failing one-by-one. Numerous trips to our vets
were made and a necropsy showed the babies suffered from
Canine Herpes Virus (CHV), also known as “fading puppy
syndrome.” CHV is a viral infection that infects the
reproductive organs of adult dogs and while adult dogs
usually do not show any symptoms, the infection is the
leading cause of death in newborn puppies. As much as we
tried, we were unable to save any of her puppies. We are
pleased that Adele is feeling better every day and her
foster family is providing her with the love and support
she needs to move through this trying time.
Little ol' lady litter | LAB Mix | 4 months
There must be some lab in these ol' ladies they
LOVE the water. They also love to cuddle, take
leash walks and play great together and independently.
Any would make a great family companion. Foster moms are
working hard on getting them potty trained.

Albie | 3 year old lab/border collie mix | F (10.26.15)
Meet Albie. She is a very sweet and high energy dog.
Because of her drive and intelligence, she needs a
person that knows how to handle a dog properly. If
you do, she is a great companion. If you don’t,
she’s a bit of a handful. Because of this, not only
has she been professionally trained, but that
training organization will work with the new owner
extensively to insure that Albie and the new owner
will develop a lifelong bond of affection. This is a
great opportunity to get a great dog that needs a
good home and learn skills that will serve you well
with every dog you ever own in the future. All at no
additional cost. This is a value of over $1000.00.
She responds to male handlers more obediently and we
believe she is too active for a family with small
children. In most cases other dogs would be fine,
but probably not cats.
If you are interested in this extraordinary dog, let
us know so we can arrange for you to meet her and
Welcome Back Owen!
Version - Bigger (he's put on a few pounds) and better!
Many of you already know Owen and for those that don't
-- what's not to love about Owen - if nothing else he
proves to all of us that cats are not the only animal
with 9 lives. We think Owen has had at least that many.
We gathered Owen (one of our first rescues as an
organization) from DeKalb County Animal Control where he
was picked up as a stray in 2009 - why? because he has a
face you couldn't say no to and he was such a goof ball.
He is the Jughead of the Archie comic books fame-- he is
He has come back to us twice - his first family had him
for two years and for some mysterious reason he kept
ending up in North Georgia and his next adopter loves
him dearly, he's just a little much for them due to
their home situation. People like Owen, if nothing else
he is a very likable guy. One of his North Georgia
finders commented prior to his returning Owen to us,
that "Owen was very gentle and loved to be with people."
He loves goofing around and is, for his age, quite
playful. He is pretty good on a leash and does know some
basic commands, he'll pretend he doesn't.
Health: Owen has always had a deformed foot from an
untreated accident as a young lad - we have had him
evaluated by orthopedic specialists and he is not up for
long walks - but he gets around terrifically on it and
it presents no medical issues to him. He can scamper and
frolic with the best of them. Approximately 2 years ago
Owen developed a gum disease and had to have all but 1-2
of his teeth extracted and last year he had several
seizures which have been controlled by medication. Like
I said, he's had a lot of lives. We know Owen is not
most people's idea of a dream companion, but he is a
nice guy. He is very loving and unintentional in his
"bull in the china shop" demeanor. We love and care
about Owen and his well-being and will never give up on
If you would like to meet Owen we are looking for a
foster or adopter with a heart as big as his. Call or
email Mutt Madd-ness.
This pregnant feral dog was rescued from
a DeKalb neighborhood where she had been wandering
door-to-door for a very long time. After 2-3 weeks with
us she gave birth to 6 adorable little ones.
Gilda is a timid girl, a lab mix and she
is not sure of humans. Our foster is working very hard
to help her understand and trust human love and care.
She is missing her right ear - no one knows where and
how. She has spent most of her life just trying to
survive. The first photo was taken the day before rescue
- she was living with a pack of dogs and this male was
her closest companion.
You can see videos of Gilda on our
Facebook page! Please visit.
Her pups were very sweet and absolutely as
precious as they are cute..best of all ALL ADOPTED!
Mousse | Rottie/Hound | 80
dog was rescued from Dekalb County Animal Services just
hours before she delivered her litter of pups! Mousse is
approximately 5 years old.
Mousse is a
beautiful dog who has had some professional obedience
training. She is a very powerful, intelligent and
observant dog with a strong personality, yet she has a
very gentle - loving, affectionate side. Firm-but-gentle
training is imperative with dogs like Mousse; she needs
to understand that you are in charge. She will do best
with individuals who are big dog savvy. She needs proper
exercise and mental stimulation, including daily walks.
A fenced yard would be perfect for her playtime! Mousse
is not a dog park dog - but loves outdoor activity and
exploring. Mousse needs proper "controlled"
socialization with people and other dogs.
interested, we would love to share her wonderful
qualities with you!
3 and fully vetted!
This little 3 year old and is very sweet with people and
possibly larger dogs – but for some unknown reason she
doesn't like cats and children. It could be their
stalking behavior she fears - she's just not telling us!
Missy doesn't really understand why someone that she
thought loved her would just dump her in Linwood Park,
but she's heard from other pups in the park that their
owners did the same thing. It seems like it's the place
to just let dogs go and fend for themselves...she feels
very lucky that Carol cared enough to rescue her and
find her a new home.
Missy is young and breed energetic girl - so a fenced
yard would be just perfect for this little one. She
loves walks and runs too, but she sure enjoys keeping
that back yard monitored for birds, chipmunks, squirrels
and growing weeds. She also LOVES car rides, seeing the
world go by at a car's pace is another favorite thing
We're not sure what type of dog she is?? The spots look
like a Dalmatian but the face is more staffie, she's
stocky - blocky and absolutely adorable. If you are
interested in meeting the always smiling Missy, please
contact Carol (foster mom) at firstname.lastname@example.org
