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.
Kiwi | F | 1.5-2 years old |
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 has three with the body shape of a dachshund (the
first three) and the other three have longer legs (the
last three in the pictures). They are very sweet and

| 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
| Young Pit Bull Mix | M
This adorable guy ended up at the home of
a dog lover. Checked by the vet - this healthy guy had
no microchip and no collar. Animal control will
euthanize - so we azre going to work hard to find this
gentle - playful guy a forever home.
He is currently hanging around with the Good Samaritan's
two dogs and two roughhousing young boys! He has shown
no interest in the family cats and has shown no
aggression at all.
He appears to be just the perfect little house guest.
His build is fantastic and we will have him fully vetted
including neuter, vaccinations and micro-chip.
Interested in this handsome guy, please contact us!
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!
Zodiac | 2year old Cattle Dog | F
Zodiac "Zoe" and her pups came to us from a South of
Atlanta shelter. She is approximately 1.5-2 years old
and quite the pretty cattle dog. Happiest in wide open
spaces, Zodiac, as all cattle dogs, is high-energy and
extremely intelligent, so give her a job - such as
obedience or agility - she'll be very happy. While wary
of strangers, the breed bonds closely to family, though
you will need to be a take charge owner - she needs to
know who to look to. If you are interested in meeting
Zodiac, please contact Mutt Madd-ness.
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 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!
Meet Rascal | LAB MIX | M
|1.5-2 years | 45#'s
doesn't anyone want me??? I'm sure a good boy, and
EVERYONE says how cute I am!! I also heard I'm VERY
smart (which I suppose is true since I'm typing this on
you can see, I'm a VERY handsome boy. But also SUPER
CUTE - in look, and personality too!
foster mommy can't keep me because she travels so much
for her work and can't take me with her, so I need to
find a new Foster family OR better yet... it would be a
dream come true if someone really nice OR a loving
family will hopefully Adopt me and give me my very own
safe, loving furever home!
been teaching me stuff like the words for "sit", and
even "slow down" when I'm having too much fun while we
take our long walks. She's sooo impressed by how I climb
into the back seat of her car, because I'm only a MEDIUM
size boy even though I'm a black lab mix. I'm only 2
years old, and at 45 lbs the doc said I'm the perfect
weight. I look like a black lab but I'm HALF the size of
a lab! You can't get better than that!!
driving around in her car helping her run errands (I
just quietly lie down on the back seat). And my most
favorite thing is meeting all the other doggies in the
neighborhood. I made instant friends with my new best
friend, a funny beagle I takes walks with and play with!
talent is rolling over so my foster mommy can rub my
belly. She seems to enjoy that so I let her think it's
my absolute FAVORITE thing too.
live with other doggies very easily, so it would be okay
if the person or family has another doggie, cause then
I'd have a new fur brother or sister to play with. Or it
would also be totally awesome to be the only doggie in
the house so I could just hang with my new family and
politely sit quietly at their feet. I promise I'll
quickly become your best friend - an amazing loving
requirement is that I need to be an INSIDE doggie
because while I love to go outside on walks and to
explore and meet other doggies, when we're not doing
that, I do need the LOVE and SAFETY of living inside a
home after everything I've been through!
here's the deal... if you are reading this and you love
doggies I want to come live with you starting this week
because my foster mommy has to leave on a long trip
again next week. You can live anywhere Atlanta. I live
in East Cobb now. And my only other requirement is that
I'd need you to work with me on crate training and
provide me with a lot of LOVE!
promise you in return is that I'll love you like no

| LAB/PIT | M |1.5 years
little boy was found wandering on a highway - tired,
scared and in poor care. The good Samaritans brought him
home and have been kind enough to care for and nurture
him. Adopted..."Unfortunately I need to surrender my
young dog! The reason I need to surrender him is due to
my current roommate and schooling situation. He needs
more attention than I can currently provide."
Sweet little Pickles came back after becoming a burden
on his adopter...
Now about 14 months old and around 40lbs. He was
re-named Henrik. He's a lovable, social, puppy-energetic
dog who loves people and absolutely loves to cuddle. He
is neutered and chipped and he is house-trained. He is
also great with other dogs.
is an awesome little boy - we loved him then and we love
him now. Help us find him his forever home!
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!
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

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!
Meet Guest Dog Jazz!
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.
