February of 2013, Steve was standing very confused and terrified in the HOV lane of I-75 just north of the Airport. There was a lul in traffic allowing me to lure him across the 5 lanes of zooming traffic. With the help of another car, we blocked him and as I approached, he pee 'd submissively. I scooped him up and put him in my car. He is very sweet, listens well, knows how to sit. He is good with my other dogs and all people. He takes treats very gently and he seems to love kids.
At the vet he was 20 lbs underweight, had scars on him from a rough life, was unneutered and was Heartworm Positive. Steve also had horrible Pneumonia from his life in the cold and the rain. He is very healthy and happy now since being treated for all his ailments.
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 www.forgottenpaws.com.
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.
