Ivan |Hound Mix | Male | 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.
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.
Hi everyone it's me Scarlett
From foster mom "the vet said
she is a 6 week old lab mix I found her and her
brother on a lake bank in South Georgia, because of
their young age and inability to swim I felt the need to
save them. Her brother found a home but this loving and
beautiful baby has not. She is so sweet and lovable. She
is the smartest puppy I have ever been exposed to.
Scarlett knows how to sit, whines when she needs to go
outside to potty, sleeps well in her basket at night,
and loves to eat. She is what everyone should dream for
in a puppy. She loves to cuddle and give kisses, loves
attention from anyone but knows who her mama is and
follows me around everywhere. The vet gave Scarlett her
first round of puppy shots on October 3rd."
If you are feeling the grace and
spirit of Scarlet Grace, please contact Mutt Madd-ness!
Clementine & Berry | Dachshund/Lab Mix & babies
The pups birthday was July 2, 2014!
Meet Kiwi and her basket of fruit. Kiwi
came to us six weeks ago when her babies were less than
a day old. They are growing big and strong and are
having fun exploring outside. Kiwi is only 22 pounds has
the body style of a dachshund. She is
the sweetest dog - she loves to play with other dogs, is
house trained, and just likes to be near you. The fruit
basket pups are very sweet and
Below is Mom-Kiwi **ADOPTED** and in order Berry (the
lone male) and Clementine are our two remaining puppies!
Hi! My name is Chance. I had
another name, but I think I like this one better! A lady
found me in a local park. I don't know what I was doing
there. I was alone and scared. Then along came this lady
who took me home! When I first got here, I was very
quiet. I didn't even bark at the cat they have. They
also have a little dog. The little dog doesn't seem to
like me much. I think he's jealous. He barks at me
sometimes, but I just walk away. I barked at the cat
once, but the lady told me to be polite and leave her
alone. So, I do. The lady took me to the vet. The vet
says I weigh 53 pounds. I don't know my birthday, but
the vet thinks I'm no older than 2 years old. She gave
me all my vaccinations and also ran some tests. I had a
low-positive heartworm test, but to look at me you'd
think I was healthy as can be! The vet gave me two
painful shots and let me sleepover. The next day, the
lady came to pick me up and took me back to her house. I
am supposed to be quiet for a few weeks so the heartworm
medicine can work. I cooperate and rest a lot. After the
heartworm medicine finishes doing its job, I am going to
have an operation called 'neutering'. Not sure what that
is, do you? The lady is also giving me monthly heartworm
and flea preventative so I stay healthy! The lady says
there are no fleas on me, so that's a good thing. I love
to go outside and for car rides. I even figured out how
to go out the little dog's doggie door. I scraped my
back the first time I tried it. But, I'm pretty smart
and figured out how to go real slow so I don't scrape my
back anymore! In the backyard, I don't chase squirrels.
Just not worth it. I made friends with the dogs on
either side of the lady's house. I wag my tail to say
hello. Barking to say hello, like the little dog does,
is just plain rude. I already knew how to sit. The lady
is teaching me to stay and it's not so
horrible...especially when she releases me. I am
learning to shake and lie down, too. I am very smart and
love to please the lady so I will learn as much as I can
as fast as I can. The lady feeds me really good kibble
and I show her how much I appreciate it by licking the
bowl clean. One time, she stuck her hand in my bowl and
messed with my kibble. I have no idea what she was
doing, so I just ate around her. I love to drink water,
but I do not drink out of the toilet (like the little
dog does) as that's disgusting. At night, I sleep in a
crate in the lady's room. I go right in and curl up and
go to sleep. The little dog sleeps on the lady's bed.
He's lucky, but I like the crate just fine! In the
morning, I wait patiently and quietly until the lady
lets me out. Then I go outside to, you know, take care
of business and then I have breakfast. Yesterday, the
lady left for a little while. I went in the crate and I
barked a little, but then I settled down and I waited in
the crate quietly until she came back. I don't really
like to play with toys or chase balls. What I like is to
be with people. Even if I'm just in the same room taking
a nap, it makes me happy. I get really happy when I see
the harness and leash come out. The lady bought them for
me and also bought me a really cool collar. I can't wait
to take walks, after I'm done with my 'quiet period'!
The lady says I can't stay with her forever and I think
I understand. She is trying to find me a family that
will love me as much as I will love them. I have lots
and lots of love to give ... but I do not give slobbery
kisses (like the little dog)! I will just wag my tail
and worship you with my eyes! Please let the lady know
if you want to meet me.
| Young Staffie/French Bull dog Mix | F - Small! | 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

How can you say no to this face! Nicest
Meet Rocky, this adorable guy found
himself lost, but fortunately ended up at the home of a
dog lover. Checked by the vet - this healthy pup had no
microchip and no collar.
He is currently hanging
around with the Good Samaritan's two dogs and two rough
housing young boys! He has shown no interest in the
family cats and has shown no aggression at all -- he
loves everything and everyone. He is just the perfect
little house guest and gentleman. He's young, handsome,
and did we mention has a fantastic build. He is fully
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!
6 years young and a beautiful
boxer/American bull dog mix
I’m a real charmer which is why I was
rescued from Cobb County Animal Control – I have a face
you cannot resist! At the time Mutt Madd-ness rescued me
I was extremely underweight
and had an upper respiratory infection, but they did a
great job treating and fattening me up ! Now I am
looking for a family that will provide me with a home
where I can play, run, love, cuddle and relax in. You
see I love, love, love people – any age, any size, any
type. I will wiggle my tush like crazy to get as close
to you as I can – because you know what I said, I love
I have to admit this…the only thing that I do not love
is other animals – I want to be your one and only – your
Queen Bee. If a one dog household is perfect for you –
it is perfect for me!
Give me a call and let’s see if we can work out the
details. I’d love to be settled on your sofa in time for
the next ball game – you see, I am a team player and
look forward to joining your team!
For a good time call for Ursula at 404.406.6322
Ursula is fully vetted, spayed and micro-chipped.
Meet KAYAK | SPANIEL MIX | F
Hi! I'm Kayak! I'm a 2-3 y/o Pointer mix, female, and I
got separated from my owners and this nice family picked
me up and is watching me. But I can't stay here forever.
I'm super sweet and get along with the two dogs I'm
living with for now.
I love to play ball and go for walks. And I love to
chase squirrels. and I only go potty outside! But I also
enjoy a good cool floor to rest on and snuggling with
people. I love doing anything with people really! I even
get in a crate when asked. I listen, I can sit, and the
vet says I'm healthy. I love treats, ice cubes, and I'll
even sit in your lap if you let me. Weighing in at 50
pounds I'm good medium-sized dog for a family. Pick me!
Rottweiler Mix Mom
8 puppies and
sweet mom! Collected from Coweta County Animal control.
a wonderful mom and a beautiful girl. Loyal, loving and
playful - what else could you possibly need or want!
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!
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!

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

in several foster homes that had their own pack.
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!
Missy! 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 email@example.com
