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
"JUST ONE DOG", what a different world for God's creatures this

friendly, loves people 100% potty trained, loves to
snuggle and play, fast learner (sit, lay down, etc.)

Days of the Week| Shepherd
Mixes | Birthdate approx 11.30
On December 21st, we picked up seven
3-week-olds from DeKalb Animal Services. They have yet
to trap mom, but babies needed to come in from the cold.
The babies are thriving in their foster homes and are
now getting fat, playful and sweet!
All adopted but Monday (F)
Terrier/Beagle Mix | Born 12.11.15
This cutie is from the Paris litter.
Momma Paris was pulled from a very high kill shelter and
had her puppies in a foster home on 12/11. There were 3
females and 1 male - all adopted but the little boy. We
predict that they will be small to medium dogs. Mom is a
25lb wire terrier mix. We are guessing that dad may have
been a beagle mix. While playful like most puppies, they
have a affectionate and cuddly nature. They will make
great companions in their forever homes!
Albie | 3 year old lab/border collie mix | F (10.26)
My name is Albie and I
recently moved into the Mutt Mansion. I want to
introduce myself. Humans call me a lab/border collie
mix. They also say that I'm about 4 years old but I
still feel like a pup at heart. The Mutt Mansion girls
and my trainer like to talk about how smart I am! (they
have no idea!!) I can figure out fun doggie puzzle in a
second! My favorite thing to do it chew on my Kongs and
bones because, as a puppy, I wasn't able to do
that....You see, I was
found by Mutt Madd-ness after I had been hurt really bad
and had a shattered jaw. It was a long time before I was
allowed to chew on fun toys. They nursed me back to
health and now I am good as new. I'm a long term Mutt
Madd-ness resident, but don't take that to mean that I
am a bad girl! I was just misunderstood because some
times I get so happy that I just don't know what to do
with myself! I am actually really well behaved! I don't
chew up things, potty inside or act naughty. I get to
work with a Super nice trainer every week to work toward
what he calls "impulse control", which is really just a
fancy way of saying containing my excitement. I'm an A+
student already (probably cuz I'm so smart!) I've
attached a selfie so you can see how cute I am!!
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
