Puppy - 1/25/14 birth date | Rottie Mix
This guy is just
3 months and he is already a BIG BRUISER. Sick as
a wee one - he and his 2 surviving siblings all had
severe pneumonia, he is now hearty and healthy.
| Mini-Pin / Chihuahua Mix | M
returning from this afternoon's (4.13.14) errand run a
neighbor approached me about Noah. Her ex passed away on
Friday and no family members wanted this little boy. I
went over and met Noah and my initial response is - he's
adorable. VERY affectionate and sweet and the best part,
it appears he's house trained! I am asking for help in
finding a foster and/or finding a forever home for this
little boy. He has a little tartar on his teeth - so he
could be a few years old, don't really know. He is
active and playful. Not a barker and seems to be fine
with her elder dog. He has not been neutered, that will
happen sooner than later. He's pretty lightweight-maybe
Gilda and her Litter (6)
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.
The pups are very sweet and absolutely as
precious as they are cute. Meet our little 6 week old
comedians; one girl Ellen.

Emory | 1.5
year old American Pit bull Mix | F
Emory came to us from a local animal shelter - she was
pregnant and needing rescue. After a vet examination it
was determined that she required an emergency C-section
- unfortunately, she had no live births. Now back to
normal health and all prettied up - she is a delight.
Emory is super playful and loves lots of hugs. She is
the perfect size dog - not too big and not too small -
the type that fits perfectly on the sofa next to you!

| 1.5-2 years old (2.22.14) Rottweiler | F
This beautiful girl was retrieved from
Clayton County Animal Control - she and her buddy a male
intact Rottweiler came in together - she was near full
gestation. We got momma out in the nick of time - she
delivered in 48 hours. Unfortunately she had a upper
respiratory illness which led to pneumonia - so we had
to remove the babies in order to get her better. She was
immediately placed on antibiotics and had a very quick
London is a delight, she's smart, pretty and sweet as
can be. Our vets think she may be a pure Rottweiler and
not a mix, but without doing a DNA test we're not
certain. The one thing we are certain about is - she is
fabulous. We all have grown very fond of her.
She will make a wonderful family dog.
She will be spayed and chipped. Fully vetted, some has
not been done due to illness and her giving birth just 5
weeks ago (input 2/27/14).
Ursula | 6 year old American Bulldog Mix | F
This gorgeous girl was rescued from Cobb
County Animal control, she is sugar sweet.
She was extremely underweight and had a terrible upper
respiratory infection. Treated and fattened - she is
getting to that place where is feeling much better and
you see it in her playful actions.
Ursula loves affection, goes outside to potty and is a
Meet Lola | 12 months 7.4.13) | Boxer Mix
This pretty little female was found by a good Samaritan
roaming around and was very malnourished. She checked
out perfectly at the vet. The vet said she will not get
much bigger than her current size. She is fully vetted,
spayed and micro-chipped.
She loves other dogs 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. Plays all day in play day - a true sweetheart
of a dog!
Lexi | Young Adult - Lab Mix | F |

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

in several foster homes that had their own pack.
Ivan |Hound Mix | Male | 4.5 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
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. Julie
Ivan is housetrained and fully vetted.
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!
The beautiful lady in red is Jazz, a 3 year old, fawn
colored girl who loves car rides, walks and sitting in
laps. She has no idea she weighs 63 pounds! Jazz is
looking for a forever home because she was abandoned
when her family moved and left her in an outdoor pen.
Jazz is so sweet and only wants to please her human
companions. She is current on shots, altered and is on
HW prevention meds. Jazz is best suited in a home with
older children and will do best as an only dog or with a
large male dog. She is more interested in being with
people than with other animals.
