**SEEKING DOG-SAVVY ADOPTER - ABUSE CASE**

We know he’s handsome enough that everyone will want him, but this stunning guy needs a special home with a dog-savvy type who also have interest in training. Interested adopters/fosters who have experience with abused dogs and/or fear-based aggression are preferred.

Tater will no doubt be a loyal friend to the patient type of friend(s), willing to be patient and kind of ignore him at first. He will let you know when he is starting to trust and feels ready to be the carefree dogs that exists deep inside. He is currently boarding with a trainer who will help his new caretaker(s) transition this insecure fella into a new home.

Tater was adopted from a county animal control as a pup and unfortunately, abused. Neighbors witnessed him being struck by both his adopter and her children. From there, he went to a couple of other ‘not quite right’ foster homes that may have added to his insecurity. Sadly, Tater looks at every new person as a potential threat until they prove otherwise. However, we've seen socialization training work very well for dogs like Tater and see him as a young fella, destined to blossom.

About Doggie Harmony New England

About Our Rescue Group...

Doggie Harmony was founded in Atlanta in 2009 by Liz Mansour and Jamie Sprague, a couple of neighbors seeking to help stray dogs that turned up locally.

From there, Doggie Harmony expanded to other neighborhoods and other people who found dogs and eventually, it was realized that nearly every neighborhood in Georgia found strays, most of which ended up in our grossly over-populated county shelters. With an estimated 300,000 unwanted pets destroyed yearly in Georgia shelters, we realized we had to find more homes to put them in.

In 2012, we began building partnerships with northeastern rescues and developed a consistent process for matching our dogs to great people and delivering those dogs to their homes up there. To become even more self-sufficent and less burdensome on our northeastern friends, we decided to launch Doggie Harmony Northeast.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs travel from Atlanta, Georgia directly to their adoptive homes in the northeast. Our transporter drives up the coast from DC, all the way to Kittery, Maine.

While you can't meet our dogs prior to adoption, we will speak with you extensively, provide videos, share trainer evaluations and offer proof of vetting to ensure our dogs are a match for your home.

Those that aren't, would be returned to us here in Atlanta at no cost to the adopter.

Our Adoption Process...

Those interested in dogs on our site are asked submit an application that we share with this dog's current caretaker. The caretaker reviews it to see if the pup would make a good fit for your home and if so, they will follow up with a phone interview.

If both caretaker and applicant agree that the dog is a great fit, a contract is signed between the parties and an adoption fee of $300 is collected via PayPal. This adoption fee covers the cost of transport and also ensures the dog has all of it's basic vetting to include spay/neuter, shots, etc.
