Facts about Georgia

  • Breed: Plott Hound Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Meet very sweet, very friendly Georgia, who we call Gigi for short! Don't let that grey muzzle fool you. Despite the grey muzzle, the vet feels she is 5-7 years old, and foster agrees with that age based on her personality. She weighs 35-40 pounds, and is a great size for any family. She is a beautiful girl with a warm soul. She is the sweetest girl! She LOVES people. Her tail wags when someone walks by her home for some pets. She absolutely adores children, is fabulous with other dogs, doesn't care about kitties, and loves all people...men and women. We have not seen any guarding issues, and no anxiety She is a super easy, rides well in a car, LOVES her walks and great on a leash. She loves lounging on the couch or her dog bed, and playing with her toys. She is really good about pottying outside.


Poor girl was found as a stray in Hazard, KY. We don't know how long she was wondering around, and was very, very thin when she arrived. She had a dental done, and her teeth had very little tarter, but she had a lot of teeth issues. Some were cracked, some were deformed. 14 teeth in all were pulled. Now that Georgia is healthy, what a difference in this sweet girl. She is eating like a champ, loves going for walks, enjoys playing with toys, and is so full of life. She is fabulous with dogs, cats, kids, men, and women. She loves everyone.
Here is a story about how gentle Georgia is: When she arrived she was in a temporary foster under her permanent foster could pick her up who lives on the main walking path to the grade school. Georgia either found a way to get through the fence to get out of the yard and to the kids. We think she is drawn to children and she heard the children walking to the school. We got a call saying the school had her and they were holding her in the office. When we went to pick her up, the staff said she was a huge hit with the children. While the kids were walking to school, they happened to see Georgia, and Georgia happily walked to school with the kids. Her new family will need will need a secure fence to be sure she can't escape.


Please give this sweet girl a home, you won't regret it. She will give you back much unconditional love. We encourage you to fill out our on-line adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.angelsonwheels.org.


Georgia's blood work came back when she first arrived that she's a bit anemic, and her protein level is down. Likely due to her malnutrition. She has had her CBC done several times now and all the levels look good including her T4, which tests thyroid. She arrived into our rescue on September 4th, and will be getting her dental done, and spay on October 14th


October 14th, Georgia had 14 teeth removed, many of which were cracked. Her teeth had little tarter, which usually indicates a younger dog. She was spayed. We re-did her blood work, her Anemia is back to normal levels, but her liver value was slightly elevated. They feel due to her bad teeth and an infection. We will re-do her blood count again mid November, Georgia also had a couple mammary tumors which was removed, and biopsied. Biopsy Negative.


November 4th, Georgia had another surgery to remove some lumps that were missed the first time that they couldn't feel or see in surgery due to some swelling she had. They were removed and biopsied. One of them came back positive for cancer. To be sure they got everything she will have her mammary gland remove as a precaution.


November 25th, Georgia will have her final surgery to remove the mammary gland and one final blood work to be sure all of her levels are stable.


Georgia is being fostered in a home in St. Charles, IL, which is where you and your family would go to meet her. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, please submit and adoption application which can be found on-line at http://angelsonwheels.org/canine-adoption-application/ We must have an adoption application submitted and processed prior to making an arrangements for a meet and greet.

Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.

Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!

About Angels On Wheels Animal Rescue NFP

About Our Rescue Group...

WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF FOSTER HOMES!

Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3), non-for-profit, state licensed organization. We are composed of animal-loving volunteers that work vigorously to make a difference in the lives of abandoned animals. We are dedicated to finding and saving neglected and unwanted animals from high kill shelters on death row to give them a second chance for life.

Our purpose is to keep these babies out of already crowded Animal Control Facilities, to provide them with proper medical treatment and then wonderful homes. If you need assistance with Spaying and Neutering your animals, please contact us.

We can't save these babies without your help. Please consider fostering, helping with transporting animals, volunteering by feeding and watering the kittens at Petco, helping with adoption days or donating; either monetary, old pet carriers, blankets, food, newspaper, paper towels, toys, the list is endless. Most importantly please, please spay and neuter all of your pets. It takes two to have a litter.

We may not be able to change change the world, but together, we can change the world for some.

Thank you for viewing our animals, considering adoption instead of buying and for your generousity.

Our Adoption Process...

An Application is required prior to meeting any of our seet rescues. The application can be found at www.angels onwheels.org. The adoption fee includes age appropriate vaccinations, deworming with Panacur and Droncit, treated with frontline plus or Revolution, spaying or neutering, Fe/LV/FIV for felines, Heartworm Test age appropriate for dogs and treated when positive, Microchip, and any other medical treatment necessary. Most of our animals come from high kill shelters and more often then not require some kind antibiotics. A spay and neuter voucher and contract is required for all adoptive families for those puppies and kittens to young for spay/neuter prior to adoption. Please see our website for more information about the adoption process.

Every day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animal and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a pupy mill, and remind people to support and ADOPT from a shelter or rescue. Thank you.
