Bella is an incredibly old Dachshund Mix who was found abandoned in a shopping center parking lot, turning round and round, lost and confused.  She is believed to be at least 16 years old.  She is about 20lbs, but very underweight.  Bella is a true hospice case - the list of issues she has goes on and on. She is heartworm positive. She has a 6/6 heart murmur. She was full of intestinal parasites. She’s dehydrated. Her spine is fusing with arthritis. Her rib cartilage is mineralizing, and she has odd nodules on her ribs. Her ear flaps are destroyed from fly bites. She’s suffered some sort of head injury, and her pupils are messed up. She wobbles when she walks. She’s either got early stage dementia, or the aftermath of the head injury. She is a HOT MESS. But she eats her food and drinks her water happily every day. She wanders all around the big yard and goes on adventures to follow the barn cats. She sees some, and she hears some. When I walk up to her, she wags and wags and wags her tail. She rests her head on my hand, her bat ears fly back, and she just lays there with me. She is a good girl, and we’re committed to keeping her as comfortable as we can for whatever time she has left. Bella is available for a hospice foster. She would prefer to be an only dog, but she will tolerate other dogs around as long as they leave her alone and stay out of her face.  We are committed to paying for her medical needs for the rest of her life. We are not going to treat her heartworm, as she’s too old and sick at this point to survive the treatment. Pain relief and good food and lots of love are the treatment plan for our special girl. show less

Hello all, Bruce Wayne here.  Despite my dark namesake, I am your pretty typical Yellow Lab...  Happy go lucky, easy going, and blind as a bat.  Badum tss!  Unfortunately, like the true Dark Knight, I've lost my family and am looking for that special sidekick to help me get back out into the world again. I really enjoy being out in the sun, going for strolls around the yard, tackling my dinner with gusto, and goofing off with my friends.  I love listening to music too, and if you play some Pandora on your phone, I'll follow you around and dance with you.  I may be an older fella, but I ain't dead yet!  I am good with dogs of all genders, sizes, and ages, but I have not been cat tested yet - that can be done if my new sidekick is going to be of the feline persuasion! Being blind doesn't stop me either.  I don't mind car rides, like meeting new people, and am happy to go exploring with you, as long as you take it slow and help me not bump into every little thing around me.  Heck, even when I do, I pick myself up and keep going!  Nothing gets me down, and my tail never stops wagging.  I am even housebroken - I don't need my eyes to know the difference between grass and your new carpet! Come pick me up, and let's hop into the Batmobile and drive off into the sunset together. I'm ready, so send in your app!  #GrownPupsForGrownUps #ISeeWithMyHeart show less

Pupperoo is an 11 y/o generic yellow dog (Old Yeller, as my vet called him) who was an owner surrender to Barrow County Animal Control. He had been with his family since he was a puppy, raised alongside their three children, but unfortunately they were recently evicted from their home and having to move into a homeless shelter. They were unable to bring Pupperoo with them or find him a new home (I suppose), so this poor guy found himself at the shelter. He is about 60lbs of sweet, scared, and confused. A very quiet and gentle boy, who got nervous on the car ride home and pooped all over everything in my life. That's okay, buddy, we got you! Pupperoo is heartworm negative and was neutered when he came into our care.  We also did a full senior blood panel, which came back fantastic.  He is in great shape for his age!  Pupperoo is living with a foster family right now that includes kids, dogs, and cats.  He's learned to be comfortable with all his four legged companions, but he doesn't particularly care for young, pushy dogs.  Pup would do best with an experienced dog owner who knows how to handle slow introductions, as well as with quiet, respectful 4-legged companions.  He is quiet in the house, preferring to spend his time sleeping and snuggling.  He does enjoy a jaunt around the neighborhood each evening and walks very nicely on a leash.  He is housetrained, does not chew anything inappropriate, and is crate trained but does not have to be kept in a crate.  He is a sweet boy who loves booty scratches and causes no trouble at all! If you'd like to meet Pupperoo and show him that family is forever, please contact us!  He can go home with you today! show less

Tina is a very special little girl who came to us as a transfer in from Releash Atlanta.  She is about 9-10 y/o, she weighs 6lbs, and she has all of 2 teeth left.  She loves other dogs and is happiest when she has several playmates around, but she is a little diva and has no problem putting the bigger dogs in their place if they get too rough with her!  She eats well (she even scarfs down dry food!) and is (mostly) housetrained.  Tina enjoys wandering around our yard, sniffing and exploring and finding dirt to roll in, so we usually keep her coat cut pretty short - she has beautiful poodle curls when it's longer! Unfortunately, Tina comes from a difficult background, and as such, she is very skittish with people.  She wants to be in the same room with you, to know that you're there, but TINA IS NOT A LAP DOG OR SNUGGLE BUDDY.  With a lot of time and patience, she will let you hold her from time to time, but she does not enjoy being petted or cuddled.  Tina is also in the early stages of dementia, which we are treating with hopes of slowing it down.  What this means for her day to day life right now is that she likes to pace a particular path around the yard, back into the house, and back around the yard again.  After she's done her pacing, she will eventually curl up in a bed near you and take a nice long midday snooze, before she's up to walk her path again. Tina has some unique quirks, but she is a sweet, happy, adorable little dog.  She will wag her tail at you and follow you gladly from room to room.  She wants to find someone who loves her and accepts her as she is, and we believe that perfect family is out there!  Tina needs a fenced yard, so she can safely walk her paths, and she would do best in a home with another dog or two for companionship.  She is not destructive and does not have to be crated / confined, as long as she has a buddy around and is not totally alone (which scares her).  Will you be Tina's special family? show less

Wendy Darling is a quiet, sweet, gentle Lab Mix who was picked up as a stray in terrible condition.  When we rescued her, she was not even able to walk at all, as her hind legs had atrophied, and she had no muscle to help her stand.  Through a combination of good food, physical therapy, and lots of patience, Wendy is not only able to walk now, but even gets a slow trot going sometimes! Wendy is still weak in her back half and sometimes needs help being able to stand up from the ground.  She is mostly housetrained and will use a doggie door, but sometimes she starts pacing and forgets that she needs to go, and may have an accident inside. She is completely nondestructive and does not enjoy being crated or contained.  She is tolerant and gentle with all other dogs in the house, and she absolutely adores being petted and loved on.  She never barks or makes any kind of fuss.  When she came to us, she had a severe pressure sore on one leg, and even after having it cleaned, medicated, and bandaged every single day for weeks, she has never so much as growled.  She is just a wonderful, sweet dog down to her core. We consider Wendy Darling to be hospice due to her age - her senior bloodwork was actually very good, but she is at least 14 and has obviously not been well cared for.  We are seeking a kind, slow paced, loving family to show her happiness with whatever time she has left! show less
