Bud (Budweiser)- Adopted!!'s Info...
|Breed:||Beagle Mix||Color:||Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Male|
Bud came to us with a broken leg. It was an old break that had not healed properly so the only recourse was to amputate. Bud was already avoiding using the leg so he has adapted well to life as a tripod.
Bud is not the typical beagle, he doesn't have that hound smell and his coat is very soft and silky, not like most of the beagles I have met before. He does like to explore and I have caught him squeezing through the gate to run to the neighbors! Like a typical beagle, he is stubborn and doesn't come when called if he is on a mission! Generally, he loves to come into the house and he loves his crate. He sleeps in it from 10:30 ish until 7:00 ish a.m. without a sound or peep, except the occasional snore! He expects a treat when he goes into his crate and will turn around and stare at you until you give him one. Once he gets in it he turns around in circles and lays down to get comfortable. When you walk around he tries to herd you by rubbing your legs as you walk. He loves, loves, loves attention and believe it or not can jump on the couch and lay beside you while you watch TV or read, but you have to rub his ears or he will put his cold nose on you. Bud loves rawhide treats but only chews them for a few minutes and then buries them in his blanket in his crate. Only one problem, around here the other dogs have caught on to this. If I forget to close his crate door when he comes out, they run in, find his bone and then steal it. He looks so pitiful when he comes in and can't find his treat? Of course, he gets another one!
Bud loves people, dogs, cats and pretty much everyone! He doesn't even look at the chickens and he is not afraid of the horses, he's actually a little too brave, making me worry he will get stood on! He has started playing a game with Harley the cat, she hides and he chases her and then she pounces on him, it looks like they both are laughing when she does it, so he has started chasing the older cats, but they don't think so highly of the "game"!

The Circle Begins
Circle of Friends Animal Society was founded in January of 2007 by eight friends with eighty years of experience in animal welfare between them. They had worked in many organizations over the years and wanted to use their knowledge and skills, add all the best practices and most innovative ideas they had discovered, and follow a different path than a typical humane society. They set out to create an organization that would address the multiple concerns of animal welfare with positive, humane solutions.
Circle of Friends believes that animals deserve kindness and that being kind to animals brings forth our best human qualities and creates a more compassionate society. We believe that every life is precious and do not put a price tag on that life. If an animal needs an investment of time, money, and effort to have a chance at a happy life, we will not turn that animal away. We believe that educating pet owners and providing services to help them is key to creating a community in which animals are valued and treated with compassion. We do not limit ourselves to helping dogs and cats and will assist any animal, of any species, to the best of our capabilities.
We ALWAYS have cats for adoptions in the Macon Petsmart Adoption Center. Someone is there to speak to from 6-7 p.m. on weekdays and 11-4 p.m. on weekends.
Every Saturday we are at the Petsmart in Loganville on 78 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with dogs for adoptions.
After we receive your application we will review it and discuss it with you. We talk with you about the animal’s energy level, temperament, individual training requirements. We also talk about your living situation, expectations, and what you are looking for in a pet. We reserve the right to require a home visit (for all “bully” breeds this is a requirement, but we may ask for one with other animals as well) before going ahead with any adoption.
Adoption fees begin at $150 for dogs and $80 for cats. They are all spayed or neutered, UTD on shots, tested/treated for heartworm or FeLV/FIV, de-wormed and on flea prevention.
Once the paperwork has been completed and the animal is considered “ready to go,” you may take him or her home with you! We love to hear about former COFAS dogs and cats who have found their forever homes - so do keep in touch!
Please note: Our animals are spayed or neutered once they are considered of age for the procedure. In very, very rare cases we will give the adopter a certificate for the procedure to be done at a later date by our approved veterinarian.
Also, from time to time we will have dogs or cats at adoption events or listed online that are not considered ready for adoption. They may need medical procedures or additional behavioral training before they are free to go. We feel that in these cases it is beneficial for the animals- they are able to get exposure to potential adopters as well as the socialization experiences that come with meeting lots of people and animals. If you meet a dog at our adoption events but he is not ready to leave our care quite yet, you are welcome to put an application in on him. However, our applications are not considered first-come first-serve; we want the animal to go to the most appropriately matched home as possible. This is not only for the dog or cat’s sake, but to make sure his or her new human family is happy, too!
We have foster homes all over!! Some in Greensboro, Athens, and even Lawrenceville. We have had people travel from out of state to adopt our animals and are glad to accommodate when needed. Distance in the GA Area does not matter when looking for your new family member.
