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

Pero Pups | True Mutts | 9
weeks ago we pulled 6 puppies that had severe ringworm.
This fungus had made their feet extremely swollen as
well as their tails and legs. After hearing about their
situation, Dr Jason Pero, owner of East Cobb Health (www.eastcobbhealth.com)
stepped up and sponsored their medical treatment. We are
happy to report that it looks like the fungus is gone
and now we are growing fur!!! We would like you to meet
the Pero puppies (reading all about where their names
came from) and give a HUGE thank you to Dr Pero!

Beagle/Chihuahua Mix | Mom 1
| Babies 7 wks
Cocoa Puff is the momma and she is tiny and sweet. She
only weighs 15 pounds and loves to be with you. She
seems to be a beagle/Chihuahua mix and just over one
She has four little girls, Granola, Honeycomb, Lucky
Charms, and Froot Loop and one little boy, Cheerio. When
I say little, I mean little. They are nearly seven weeks
old and weight about three pounds. Today was their first
adventure outside and they couldn't get enough of it.
The puppies seem to be a mix of momma and a dachshund
perhaps. Cheerio and Granola have shorter legs while the
other pups have longer legs.

| Young Staffie/French Bull dog Mix | F | 1.5-2 years
This sweet little girl came to us from
DeKalb Animal Control, she was in pathetic condition.
Malnourished with bowed legs and severe demodex. It's
amazing what good medical care, food and a lot of love
can do. She's a super little girl and will make anyone a
Albie | 2.75 year old lab/terrier mix | F
Are my eyes open this time?! huh? are they? Ugh, It's so
hard to sit still and focus on this lady with the camera
when I just want to run and give her kisses!!!! AHHHH
take the picture already! Whew! That was fun, now on to
playtime!! I guess
I should introduce myself, my name is Albie and I am a
mix of a southern lady, what with all of my knowledge of
which forks and spoons to use for which meal, and also a
little bird watching, squirrel chasing tom boy, but
mostly I'm the lady part of my mix.
I didn't so much come from a lap of luxury though, I had
a rough start, you know, nothing was handed to me, no
silver spoon in this mouth, however, I am making up for
lost time! Can't hold me down! I had a broken jaw, I
won't mention how or why because that part of my life is
over I tell ya, but thankfully the rescue came and fixed
me right up! Surgery isn't so fun, but the recovery part
was cool, people taking care of me, and giving me
special treats, yeah I can get used to that, keep that
wet food coming!
Anyway, I am all clean, healthy, healed and ready for my
FOREVER home!! I am an active girl but really LOVE my
foster people. Love 'em, want to sit right by 'em, can't
get close enough, maaayyybe a little lean turns in to me
sitting on your foot but who's counting. Okay, so I love
other dogs, like literally, I am a dang social
butterfly. I like stimulation too, like sitting outside
in a big fenced in yard and just watching nature...
while secretly trying to learn the squirrel patterns so
one day, just ONE day maybe I can catch one… I digress.
Back to my forever home! I am house trained and crate
trained and really am a good girl that will make a great
companion to your family!
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!

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

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
