"HAPPY DAYS" THEMED DOG:  3 years old / 81 lbs.  Meet me Saturdays at 1 of our 2 Kennesaw locations from 11-4pm.  Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays.  I'm a big, friendly, strong and playful young dog who is also strikingly handsome!  I like all the nice volunteers who come to care for me at the Mostly Mutts shelter, but nothing will beat having a family and home of my own.  I’d like a dog savvy family who knows how to properly handle large dogs that can be a little head strong.  I should not be allowed on the furniture as it makes me feel a bit like I’m in charge.  I say, “Nothing in life is free” which just means that I should expect to work to earn privileges and it’s great for me to use my mind in that way.  I got to stay in a temporary foster home recently and there were 5 other large dogs that I ran around playing with and it was a blast!  So another playful big friend could be great in my new home!  I don't think I like small dogs though.  I love rolling around on the carpet and moaning/growling with delight.  I do very well with my potty habits on the schedule at the shelter and did well in my temporary home too.  I'm however, not a fan of my crate so perhaps I won't need one, but we're not sure since I currently live at the shelter.  I'll go back in my very large crate for treats, but I'd love it if I didn't have to.  I have good leash manners and have learned ‘sit’ and I’m working on ‘shake’.  I'm a little mouthy when I play and do jump a bit, so please be prepared to do some training with me as all dogs need training, especially big guys like me.  Fortunately, I'm very treat motivated, so that is really helpful.  I'm a higher energy type dog, so I just can't wait to be active with my new family!  I'm no couch potato for sure but I am a super sweetie!  Older dog savvy kids as I’m large and can be bossy.  Energy level: 6–8.  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $275.00.  

About Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue & Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Who We Are:

Mostly Mutts is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, staffed almost entirely by volunteers!
Our Mission is to help the Unwanted, Abandoned, Abused and Sick animals in our local counties. We fulfill this mission by working closely with County Animal Control Facilities, saving those who are in imminent danger of euthanasia, or those with needs which require specialized vet care that many other groups will not consider: major orthopedic issues, heartworm positive treatment, skin conditions, neglect and abuse

Please visit our website, www.mostlymutts.org for additional information about adopting a new best friend!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to submit an application through our website, www.mostlymutts.org. You may also call our phone line, 770-272-6888 or email adopt@mostlymutts.org with specific questions about any of our adoptable animals. We do require an interview, references and a contract. Must be 21 or over to adopt. Our Adoption process is very thorough...MM prides itself in making every effort to place each animal in the right home.
