Meet Mickey!  Little Mickey was found wandering in Lakewood Heights a few months ago with no collar, microchip, or skin on his tender little pads.  He also has some scarring on his face and a chunk bitten out of one of his giant bat ears.  According to neighbors he had been loose for at least a week; best guess is that he was chained or gated in a yard somewhere and his behavior indicates that he was likely denied food and water with frequency.

It would seem that he had never been inside or had a human be kind to him before, but in spite of all that he is working hard on learning everything from being house broken to leash walking to crate training to the idea that not all humans are monsters.

Mickey is a very clever boy and a bit of a Houdini in terms of figuring out how to open doors.  He has some fear-reactive issues with humans but is great with other dogs.  It is lovely to see that he has been able to bond closely with at least two separate people and that he really wants love and to give love back even though he has been so badly mistreated.

He really needs the right person or people to work with him through is fear and anxiety, but his capability to form a trusting bond shows that he can make progress with the right kind of help. Now that he's feet have healed he's no longer limping on all four of them he is playful, affectionate, and eager to please.

Hoping to find a proper foster situation or forever home for this little pup!

About Doggie Harmony

About Our Rescue Group...

Doggie Harmony is a metro-Atlanta dog rescue group focused on finding the right homes for dogs in foster care or belonging to owners who wish to re-home them. Our core objective is to place these dogs before they are turned over to animal control facilities, where they may be euthanized. Lastly, Doggie Harmony supports spay/neuter, wellness, and training to help keep or place dogs. This includes helping people find low cost resources and/or lending financial support where there's a qualified need.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Doggie Harmony is an approved non-profit (501c3) organization, so your donations are tax-deductible. If you would like donate, you may direct funds to our address below, or to our PayPal account at

Come Meet Our Pets...

Doggie Harmony does not hold regular adoption events, so watch our website for special events. We also encourage you to contact us about pets you may be interested is, as we are always willing to bring them to meet you.

We do not have a shelter, so we are only able to support animals with foster homes or donations toward short-term boarding.

Our Adoption Process...

Those interested in our adoptable pets are asked to complete an application that will allow us to assess whether a particular pet is good fit for their household and lifestyle. If it is, we will then bring the pet to their home for a meeting. If all goes well, the adoption contract is initiated and a fee is collected, but held for two weeks to ensure the adoption is a success. Our fees vary depending on each pet and what has been invested medically and behaviorally to ensure they are adoption-ready.
