Impreza | F | 5 months | Chihuahua mix
little girl was also a turn in to Cobb County Animal
Control. She was very timid when she first came to us.
In the last two months she has started to gain her self
confidence and you can see her grow everyday into a
comical, entertaining, and loyal little girl who is
absolutely brimming with personality. She loves to play
with both her foster sister Rosemary, and her other
small friend. She is usually the last one to say time
for a nap, but when she does she loves to curl up with
Rosemary, or better yet her foster mom on the couch. She
has learned to come when called, and definitely knows
the word treat. Car rides are a special treat that she
loves. She is house broken, but as any puppy still needs
to go out during the day. She would love to find a
furever home that had other dogs and someone who
understands they would need to be very patient with her
when they first bring her home.
If you love the
little ones, she is the perfect little girl for you!

Meet Lola | 6 months | Boxer Mix
This pretty little female was found by a good Samaritan roaming
around and was very malnourished. She nurtured her for the past 3 weeks. She
checked out perfectly at the vet. She is estimated to be
6 months old and weighs about 50 pounds. The vet said
she will not get much bigger than her current size. She has had her
first set of shots, rabies included. She will be spayed
She loves other dogs, cats, and is
housebroken. She is very sweet and will cuddle up with
you on the bed at night to sleep. She even walks off
leash and never runs away. Played all day today in play
day - a true sweetheart of a dog!
Hershey| Cattle Dog Mix| M | 2 years in June
is a sweet, cute, loving dog. As a cattle dog - looking
for the herds to manage -he has typical-of-the-breed
energy and curiosity. He would do well in a home with
another dog that would play companion to him or with an
active family, that would hike, walk, run and play. He
needs an owner who is able to give additional training
and can exercise on a regular basis. Cats and very young
children may get tired of being rounded up by this
is smart and headstrong. He would do well with a savvy
dog owner or someone familiar with the behaviors of the
working/herding breeds. As most of this breed type
Hershey is incredibly fast and can jump really high.
He'd make a great candidate for Frisbee or obstacle
course competitions. Hershey is fully vetted,
housetrained and looking for his forever home.
Outback | M |
9 months -
7.4 lbs | Chihuahua :)
This little guy was turned into
Cobb County Animal Control with his brother (adopted).
Outback has not been adopted. He is a
super little boy. Plays well with my 2 big dogs, loves
attention, playful, jumpy beanie, and all around a nice
Both are absolutely adorable and VERY
playful. They are not intimidated by much and love to
jump on the 2 big dogs at the foster home. They
both love affection. When they are
not chasing each other through the house - they are
wrapped up in each others paws! Cute, cute, cute - you
can't stop watching them!
Deer Chihuahuas are the largest of the
Chihuahua breed, with the males standing about 12" at
the back and the females 10-12". The legs in this type
are proportional, being as high as the body is long, and
lend themselves to fewer health ailments. Deer
Chihuahuas can weigh up to twenty pounds and live about
The deer Chihuahua is a well rounded, happy animal that will
gladly snuggle with three other Chihuahuas, all on the
same master's lap.

dog! He's as you can see absolutely spectacular in

BULLY boy and we love him. Dexter is fully vetted.
Mercury | 10
months 4.1.13 | Lab Mix | M
little guy is the last of the Mohicans! He is the
remaining pup from our our Rock 'n Roll litter. As
you can see he is cute as can be--playful, smart and
just your all-American boy.
is a great family dog. Mercury's foster thinks he's
the best ! He loves playing with their two dogs and the
boys. And when it's time to settle - he's quite the love
bug. Mercury loves car rides, chase and a good bone!
American Bulldog Mix | 1.5 years
Hi! I'm Yoyo. Yep, just like my name
implies, I am fun and goofy. I would make a great kids'
dog! I love to play, and make sure you love kisses
because I have plenty to share. Sometimes I don't like
being alone, so I'm better off if you put me in a crate.
I may act upset at first, but I'm fine as long as I have
a bone to keep me busy. I am a big boy, so only let big
kids/adults play tug of war with me. You'll see how
strong I am! Anybody can play fetch with me, though. I
bring the ball back nicely. I also like the challenge of
taking walks with a doggie backpack. So, take me for
nice walks and let me carry your water bottles for you!
It'll be good for both of us!
Anyway, if you're looking for someone who looks tough
but is just a big teddy bear, I'm your boy! Please give
me a great home. I had a tough life (my ears prove it),
and I'm ready to love and be loved!
Deuce and Yoyo (R) at play, BFF's!
Staffordshire/Corgi? Your guess :) | 1.5-2 years
This little girl
is approximately 1.5-2 years old. She is being fostered
by a family with 4 other dogs and children. She gets
along very well with everyone in the family. She is a
leaner- she loves to do a little loop-d-loop and get
her tush on your lap. She loves attention and is
very playful. She walks well on a leash and enjoys the
had a ruff beginning - although she does not show it.
She was found tied to a tree, covered in fleas and ticks
and starving. She was also pregnant. She did not deliver
her dogs, she was spayed and fully vetted. She has been
lovingly nurtured by her foster and she is doing great.
She is becoming a healthy, happy girl. Maggie would love
to find that forever person or family! Is that you?

sensitivities (allergies) that Sadie occasionally
presents with. The vet appears to have her allergy
abated with a special dog food and generic allergy
medication. Sadie is a gorgeous lab and the perfect
From the owner:
"Sadie is a great dog. She will be 2 years old August
1st, we have had her since she was 12 weeks old. She is
a solid black lab, mixed with something; we can not tell
what she is mixed with since she looks, as well as her
demeanor, is dominantly lab . She is spayed and
micro-chipped. She loves everyone and everything. She is
an indoor dog, since we do no have a fenced in yard, but
she loves to be outside. We take her to run and play at
my mom's where there is a huge fenced in yard. She is
potty trained and leash trained. She loves car rides and
baths. She knows several commands. She knows "sit",
"shake", "go lay down" (when we are eating dinner we
tell her to "go lay down" and she will lay down right at
the doorway of the dining room), "let's go potty", "go
to bed", "get your toy" and a few others things we say
to her when we play. She gets along well with our son
(he is 15 years old) and did well with my nephews when
they were in town (they are 2 and 4 years old). She is
good with our cat and our miniature schnauzer, who plays
rough with her. The schnauzer is 1 and he likes to
"wrestle" with Sadie when she is laying down on the
floor, or nibble her ears or her tail, and Sadie doesn't
even care. If she wants him to stop, she will just get
up, walk away and go lay in her bed, she's never bit at
him or anything. She is a very laid back loving
dog...classic lab through and through! Her favorite
"treat" is an ice cube. We put one in her water bowel
and she looks like she is bobbing for apples trying to
get it! She likes to snuggles. She is a 80 pound lap
Lexi | Young Adult - Lab Mix | F |
This dog is AWESOME! She is trained,
sweet and looking for a family to love. She is a young
beautiful lab mix. She loves to play, take long walks
and runs, loves her chewies and toys. She is playful and
enjoys the affection of people. She is housetrained and
knows some basic commands. If you are looking - she is a
We feel Lexi is best suited as an
only-dog family; she is selective in regards to
the dogs she will tolerate and those that she will not.
She is a very loving - affectionate dog and deserves
someone that understands her personality.
Ivan |Hound Mix | Male | 3.5 Year Old | 45 pounds
Ivan is a young, playful dog. Ivan is
very sociable and loves interacting with other dogs and
Ivan would love an active outdoor partner - he thinks
walks, runs, hikes and camping are pretty great things.
Ivan UPDATE (May 2013)
Notes from a foster (7.12)
I want to thank you for suggesting that I
foster Ivan. He is a love.
Truly. He has only been with me since Tuesday, and he
has already settled in nicely. He is a wonderful house
dog. And Girl, for me to say that is something. Just
poll my friends. I am very particular about my house
being clean and orderly and I wondered how Ivan would
adapt to that, but I have to say, I have not had to make
any corrections with the exception of trying to sleep
with me at night. I corrected him the first night and he
has been fine thereafter.
I told you about coming home one afternoon to find him
on my bed sound asleep with the TV on (I had forgotten
to turn it off when I left I guess.) It just warmed my
heart that he felt comfortable enough to take a
well-deserved snooze on my bed. Since I don't care if he
naps on my bed and he knows not to get onto the bed at
night, all is perfect as far as I am concerned.
Ivan is quite the comic as well. At least he makes me
laugh. He is so full of joy and is so very playful. I
like how when he is playing with some toys and seems to
have so much fun with them, he comes into my office to
share his fun. Since he has been with me, his walking
has improved greatly. He doesn't pull nearly as much.
The Easy walk collar is used on long morning walks, but
I now attach the leash to his normal collar. I suppose
the harness is a reminder that he needs to stop pulling
and enjoy the walk.
We are also enjoying running through the backyard. Ivan
runs back and forth with a tennis ball in his mouth and
I try to catch him! Since he is quite the athlete, I can
only manage to tap his back as he races by me. Now that
he has been with me he seems to have his own built in
barometer for knowing when he has had enough and settles
down with a cold drink of water and a quick nap.
Now that Ivan has a landing pad, he seems much calmer. I
think he would actually do well at adoptions eventually.
I just need to get him to be around a few of the
neighbor kids to see how he reacts toward them.
For the longest time I have wanted to foster dogs in
need, and I wondered how I would be able to let them go
to another family. Time will tell how well I will
adjust. Ivan is a true love. I love having him around.
Thank you again. Julie
Ivan is housetrained and fully vetted.

Rocky is about 7 months old and full of
fun. He wants to be where you are. He stays close by
when I am working in the yard, and even helped me pull
some ivy off my trees. He loves to chase sticks and
loves his toys. He is good in a crate, walks on a leash
and very seldom barks, even at strangers while going for
walks. He is house trained and barks if he has to go
He is still learning not to jump, and because he is
young, he is active. He gets along with my dogs. I donít
know about cats. He is neutered and up-to-date on his
shots and heart worm negative.
He will make a great family dog, but because of his size
and activity level, he would be best with older kids.
