A CUTE LITTLE FELLOW:  5 years old / 12 lbs.  The Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat 11am-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. I was recently diagnosed with diabetes and now it’s going pretty well with my glucose levels good and steady. I simply need 2 insulin shots a day as well as eating on a regular 12-hour schedule. I eat special food that I enjoy and have already gained two pounds! I’m now feeling more lively and energetic as well as friendlier, and I’m putting on some much-needed weight. When I was first rescued, I was confused and therefore guarded since I had lost my home and was not used to living at the shelter. But, since I’m in a great foster home now, I’m a lot more relaxed and I love to be held or sleep in your lap, on your couch, your bed—wherever you are, that’s where I want to be. Since I’m a little fellow and you are large, I sometimes initially act tough to protect myself and I have tried to nip a little. Just go slow with me so I can feel secure and please don’t rush things with me. I’ll come around as soon as I feel your love. I walk well on a leash and LOVE to go on walks, longer than you might think for a little guy like me. I like the top of my head rubbed and will rub it on your lap in such a darling way.  I’ll also put a paw or two on you as I’m getting to know you and sitting closer to you. I’m doing well with the other little dogs in my foster home, and now that I’m feeling better, I’m playing a lot more. I met a big dog in my temporary foster home, and I played really well with him.  It could be due to my past life, but I tend to “guard my resources” like toys, food, and items in my crate. I have this reaction with both people and dogs, so you’ll have to help me let my guard down, and Mostly Mutts can give you lots of tips about that. I’m working on my potty manners and do best to go out every three hours during the day. I have been marking a bit, so, again, you can ask for tips from Mostly Mutts on helping me with that. I know the phrases “let’s go outside” and “go to your crate”. If you have a nice calm nature and a quieter type home as well as a willingness to meet my medical needs, we’ll be so happy together! Older calm and gentle kids only since I may nip when I’m afraid. Energy level: 4–6. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $100.00.  

About Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue & Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Who We Are:

Mostly Mutts is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, staffed almost entirely by volunteers!
Our Mission is to help the Unwanted, Abandoned, Abused and Sick animals in our local counties. We fulfill this mission by working closely with County Animal Control Facilities, saving those who are in imminent danger of euthanasia, or those with needs which require specialized vet care that many other groups will not consider: major orthopedic issues, heartworm positive treatment, skin conditions, neglect and abuse

Please visit our website, www.mostlymutts.org for additional information about adopting a new best friend!
