Facts about Krissy

  • Breed: Beagle/Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
4 years old, 35 pounds. Krissy is a very shy little girl with new people but she warms up very quickly. She LOVES to play and has thoroughly enjoyed not only raising her litter of pups but taking on the role of surrogate mom to another litter b/c that mom wants to have her own life. LOL She is so full of love and personality. She is so funny when she plays "fetch". She is actually chasing the other dogs down the yard but has no interest in what they are chasing b/c she usually has her own toy in her mouth running around with it making funny noises.

She needs a home without small kids since we have never had her around them and she is so shy. She REQUIRES A SECURE FENCED YARD. She freaks out on a leash and we have been unable to work with her b/c we have so many dogs at the kennel house. She needs someone who will be patient and let her come to you b/c it may take a couple of days and it will take a few weeks for her to get comfortable in a new home with new people. Don't let her shyness scare you off. She is such an awesome dog. We prefer a home that has ANOTHER DOG b/c she seems more comfortable with dogs then people.

If you are thinking of getting two dogs, Krissy and Mozzie are bonded. She thinks that is her son b/c she raised him. He is not but we won't tell them.:)

History: Krissy was living stray and pregnant in an industrial complex in Marietta. No one knows where she came from but most likely she was dumped. She was so scared and wouldn't come to anyone so we had to set a trap. Bless her heart, she was so hungry she went right inside. She has been with us since the end of May 2014 when she had a litter of pups. (We still have two of her pups: Spot and Butler, listed on the large dog page b/c they outgrew her by alot!)

All dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and Heartworm negative unless otherwise noted. We require an adoption application, home visit and adoption fee of $200 ($150 for senior). You also get a two week trial period with all of our dogs. To apply, simply go to

Many of our dogs are in foster homes all over Atlanta, thus an application is required before an appointment can be set to meet a dog.

About Forgotten Paws Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Forgotten Paws Pet Rescue is made up of a very small group of volunteers. We all work full time jobs while running this rescue group. We all dip into our own pockets on a daily basis to get these pets the medical care and supplies that they need to survive until we can find them their forever homes. Unfortunately, some of them have to wait in line for care because we do not have the monetary means to help them immediately. That is where your donations come in.

Our rescued pets live in our homes, under our supervision. We do our best to train, housebreak and perfect these pets to the best of our abilities so that when we do find them their forever homes, they work out.

We at Forgotten Paws revere our rescued pets like our own. We treat them like members of our families until they can be adopted. We are a NO KILL group and we also ask that if a pet does not work out for any reason, 2 days or 10 years down the road, please return them to us. We love them that much.

Our motto: When we rescue a pet, we are in it for life. We are not just looking for a home, we are looking for the right home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Process:
October only, adoption fee is $100, that's half the price!
1. All applicants must be 23 years of age and must complete an adoption application.
2. You application will be reviewed and all veterinary and personal references will be contacted
3. Home Visit / Play Date - All household members, including current pets, are required to attend the home visit. All needed repairs to fencing must be completed prior to this visit. Gates to the yard need to be securing locked.
4. Two Week Trial Adoption Period - We require the two week trial on all adoptions so that the new pet has time to get settled and their true personalities can surface. It gives the new home a chance to make sure this pet is the right fit for everyone involved. Please understand that like a child, a new pet needs time to adjust and settle in. There is an adjustment period.
5. Adoption Agreement and Adopton Fee of $200 ($150 for seniors).
6. One policy to note: If you have children and you are applying for a dog, we will require you to have a physically fenced yard. Electric fencing is not acceptable in most cases but exceptions are sometimes made dependent upon the dog.
