Poco, a beautiful SUPER SWEET Flashy Bully Breed, approximately three years old, was dumped on a dirt road. Poco is very grateful he has gotten a new chance at life. He has had a tough few years. He found himself in another county shelter in Georgia a few years ago, after being dumped on a dirt road where he was adopted and microchipped. Sadly, that owner chose to rehome him and approximately a week after they did so, Poco was found dumped AGAIN on another rural dirt road. The previous owner was contacted but they stated they moved and couldn't keep him and that they did not know the person they allowed to adopt and dump the dog they promised to love and protect from harm. Poco has fully recovered from heartworms which was discovered after a trip to vet, is fully vetted, 55 pounds, and eagerly awaits his new forever family. He has a lot of energy and is super sweet. Due to his high-energy level, he will do best in a home with adults and big kids. He loves playing with dogs. He should not live with cats.

About Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, INC

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small canine rescue group located in Northeast Georgia that works tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate, fully vet, and rehome faithful dogs that have been tossed out of cars onto rural roads. We are a registered, 501c3 tax deductible Non Profit Rescue and we are licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture

All dogs in our program have been previously reported to animal control to ensure they were not lost pups who had a family diligently looking for them. We do not turn a dog away due to breed, health concerns, or age. It is our goal to keep these dogs out of animal shelters, thus saving their lives and providing more time to the dogs already in shelters to find their forever family.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, INC is located in the quaint town of Gillsville, in the foothills of the Georgia Mountains, just south of Gainesville. Our rescues are fostered in loving homes located in Hall, Jackson, and neighboring counties.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption is a four part process.

Application: You will be required to submit general information along with personal and vet references.

Home visit: Potential adopters will receive a home visit by one of our members.

Meet -n- Greet: All family members (fur babies included) must meet the foster parent and pup they wish to adopt.

Here at Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, each adoption contribution is $200 per dog. We do not adjust this rate based on the "popularity" of a dog. We believe every dog is worthy of an owner that sees the value in them. Each adoption contribution is used to cover the expenses incurred for that dog and other dogs in our program.
