My story

Meet the ever-so-handsome Paco!! Paco was named Max at the shelter we pulled him from. He was named Paco - remember the Fragrance theme?? - for the Paco Rabanne fragrance. It is described as being fresh and spicy, and our boy is a little of both - lol! He was definitely pretty spicy when we pulled him - as in the stinky side of spicy - but after his scrubbing when we got him back to our building, was oh-so-fresh!!!
He's a larger boy, weighing in around 70 pounds. His coloring grows more beautiful the longer you look at him. He has a dark mahogany brown body with the most beautiful brindling pattern on his face and legs that you don't notice at first, but once you do, gets more beautiful every time you look at him! He's really a stunning boy, and we were taken with him as soon as we saw him. We believe him to be a Plott Hound / Lab mix. He is a friendly, happy boy that would probably be great in a family with kids.
Do you like your dogs on the larger side, with a happy, playful disposition?? Then this looker might be the perfect dog for you! Paco is located in Atlanta. He can be adopted at at any time, and will be ready to go to his forever home after he graduates in August.

More about this rescue

Canine CellMates is a jail dogs program that operates out of Fulton County Jail, in Atlanta, Georgia. The mission of Canine CellMates is to establish a continuing partnership between Fulton County Animal Services, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office and Fulton County Jail, and Canine CellMates to rehabilitate inmates housed at Fulton County Jail and homeless dogs from Fulton County Animal Services through a Good Behavior Incentive program. We want to give the inmate a productive new sense of hope and newly trained skills to care for and train shelter dogs, and give the dogs the skills they need in order to become adopted into and spend the rest of their lives in loving and caring homes. There are many programs across the country that are all slightly different, but with one important common thread - dogs which were otherwise subject to being euthanized are saved and given a new and better chance. The inmate handlers get to learn responsibility in caring for a living creature, accountability in working towards a goal, and are able to experience unconditional love and positive physical contact in an environment where those are not possible. The incidence of violent outburst in prison and jail facilities where these program are in place has shown a dramatic decrease, sometimes as much as 50%. Recidivism rates have also shown marked improvements. The Atlanta metro area has one of the highest recidivism (or re-offend) rates in the country, around 70% within the first 2 years after release. In Gwinnett County, over 300 inmates have gone through this program to date, and only 6 or 7 of them have since re-offended, which is roughly 2.3%. This is a program that has a huge ripple effect in the community, and that’s why we are so excited that this program launched in Fulton County Jail on June 3, 2013. We are already seeing amazing changes and invite you to be part of improving lives - both canine and human!
