Big Buddy

Buddy was spared from euthanasia in a Georgia animal shelter by a New Years Eve miracle, cobbled together by volunteers from several rescues who saw the hidden gem in the blind, senior dog with urine soaked, matted fur. Once he was rescued and cleaned up, Buddy quickly proved us right.

Buddy is a sweet, loving, easy going gentleman, probably about 8 years old. He has little or no usable sight, but this doesn't seem to bother him. He adjusted easily to his foster home; he quickly established familiar routes around the house and yard. He gratefully accepts any kindnesses and creature comforts offered to him: scritches and hugs, soft beds, meals and treats, dog bones to chew on.

Buddy had to be shaved because his fur was so badly matted. When his fur grows back, he should be a handsome black dog with tan and white markings. In the meantime, he is content to wear a sweater to keep him warm.

Buddy has perfect house manners. He has had no accidents. He does not chew or do anything else destructive. He is very interested in food, but he does not get into the garbage or counter surf. He gets along with the other dogs and ignores the cats.
There has been no opportunity to assess Buddy's behavior with children. He is currently being treated for heartworm and will be available when this treatment is complete.

Buddy is being fostered in Georgia.

Mr. Sinatra

Sinatra  is a 2 year old blue merle. He is good with cats, dogs and children. He really just loves everyone! Sinatra is great in the house and really loves his crate. He is mostly deaf but will recall to loud sounds and is proving to be a quick learner when it comes to signs. He is what some would call a Velcro dog and wants to be where his people are.

Sinatra is fostered in Dallas, GA

Sam Spade

Detective Sam Spade is adjusting well to his foster home and is now sniffing out his forever home!

Sam is a 5 year old neutered male. He weighs 47lbs and is UTD on all necessary vaccinations and flea/tick/heartworm preventatives.  He is completely house trained and great with other dogs, cats and kids. He has no preference for men or women-he loves everyone equally :) He is medium energy and would do well in a home that can provide moderate exercise (walks, hikes or even a romp in the yard with another dog or kids).

Detective Spade is a velcro dog. He spent the majority of his life tied up outside so now all he wants is to be near his people.

If you are looking for a happy, easy-going dog that considers the world his playground, Sam is the guy for you :)

He is being fostered in Powder Springs, GA.

Sweet Peaches

Sweet Peaches is proving to be as sweet as her name!  She is a 40 pound tri-color Aussie mix with short hair and a naturally docked tail, and is about 5 years old.  She is friendly, healthy and VERY happy, housebroken and she knows many commands.  She is very food-motivated, so additional training will be a breeze.

Dorie is a cutie!  She is an Aussie mix, a red bi with a little nub for a tail, about 10 months old and weighs just over 30 pounds.  She was turned in to a local shelter as a stray.  We know that she loves other dogs, but she is VERY shy and has had no real socialization.  We are going to hold her in foster while she learns that she can trust people.  Please check back for updates!!  Dorie is fostered near Raleigh, NC.  NS 2461

Can you believe this beauty was a stray?   Gracey is an approx 8 yr old red merle female.  Gracey needs to lose about 20lbs!  She's a sweet girl who just needs a diet and exercise. 

She's good with other dogs but can get a little grumbly with youngsters that won’t stay out of her face.  She is house trained.   We haven't had her spayed yet as we'd like her to lose a little weight.  That can be taken care by us when she’s able to have it done.

If you feel you have the time and patience to help Gracey become the girl (size) she should be and reap the rewards of a loving companion, please complete an application.

Gracey is located in Navarre, FL (the Panhandle) but we can get her closer if need be.

Apply here for her.  NS2435

Jess is a sweet 6-8 yr old blue merle mini, she weighs about 25lbs. She is house trained, ok with other dogs, prefer no cats or small children.

Jess walks well on a leash, likes toys, loves people. Everyone that meets her falls in love with her. She does need to stay on Life's Abundance grain free food and only grain free treats, otherwise he gets and upset stomach and diarrhea.

We are looking for a home where she won't be home alone for long periods, she would like another more submissive dog as a friend to keep her company.

Jess is fostered in Wesley Chapel, FL
