Story
Charlotte is an adult estimated to be 5-7 years old and tiny at just under 10 lbs. She is a sweet little love, Loves to give kisses, sit in your lap and just be near you. She is great with other dogs but prefers them to be smaller (under 30 lbs). She is NOT a fan of cats! She was owner surrendered when her daddy passed away and there was no family willing to take her in. At one point she was a very loved dog, but Daddy got sick and had a hard time taking care of her. She came covered in fleas and hairless on her bum. Her hair is grown back beautifully! She is crate trained and relearning house training skills. That too has improved in the time she has been in rescue. She needs someone willing to work with her as she unlearns bad habits. adoption fee $300 includes spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and tested negative for heartworms ( dogs 7 months old and older) .To fill out an application visit https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/33868/generic ##1999641##

Story
LOOKING FOR A CALM/PATIENT OWNER:  Approx. 4 years old / Approx. 17 lbs.  Hi, my name’s Wesley!  Mostly Mutts rescued me from animal control & I am so grateful they are helping me find a great furever home!  I came in with a cherry eye & heartworm positive, but both of those things have been medically treated and I’ve fully recovered.  Now I just need a patient & understanding family to adopt me.  I got to spend some time in the prison/foster training program where I had a great time & learned a lot, too!   • OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS:  I met dogs recently at Mostly Mutts and liked them.  I also played nicely with the dogs I met in the prison/foster training program and in my foster home, with just a few minor corrections over whose stuff is whose, so if you have a nice dog at home already, let’s meet and see if we can be pals!  / Cats unknown. / I haven’t met kids at Mostly Mutts, but I can be reactive to certain touches, so best no kids in my new home.       • PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL:  When I first came to Mostly Mutts, it took a little while to feel comfortable & I was very reactive to touch, but now I bond with people much more quickly.  Give me a little time & please be aware that I am sensitive to touch near my backside & you will see my sweet, playful & affectionate side blossom.  When people rushed to get to know me or touched me at times near my hind end, I’ve bitten them, so let me come to you & let you know when I’m ready for affection & please no petting on my hind end.  It only took about a day for my trainer in the prison/foster training program to win me over & then I made other friends fairly quickly.  I did great for my baths & toweling off in the prison/foster training program & at Mostly Mutts too. I am playful with toys & am a lap dog once we are friends.  Now that I am more comfortable with people, my reaction seems to be just a quick head whip as though to say “hey, what are you doing back there?” I like being picked up, just not restrained from being able to say hello to all my other friends.  My trainer says I have a typical bossy, little dog way about me which I think means that I am quite charming. / My energy level is 5-7. • SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY:  I’m a proud graduate of the Mostly Mutts University training program so I’ve learned the ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘down’, ‘come’, ‘drop it’, ‘leave it’ & ‘place’ commands.  I also use proper door etiquette & have good leash manners as well as accept nice strangers without jumping. / My crate manners are good at Mostly Mutts, though I used to whine when I was in there. My foster reports that I am doing much better with that and now sleep quietly through the night. My foster also says I am a smart, responsible boy when left out as I am not one to mess with any of your things. I am fine to sleep in my crate or in the bed with you if you let me! Warm cuddles under the covers with my person after my morning potty break make my tail wag! / My potty habits have been good on the shelter & prison/foster training program schedules as well as in my foster home. • LIKES/DISLIKES:  My favorite spot is in a comfy lap where I can give you lots of kisses, but it takes me a bit of time to feel comfortable enough to seek it out.  I also love to burrow under blankets, so cute!  My new spot has been by the window where I can sunbathe and look out at the world outside. I love treats (Pup-Peroni – yum!) but give them to me open-handed so I don’t nip a finger. This is also a great way to make new friends! I like to play with toys, too, especially balls & tug-type toys.  Under belly scratches are the best. / I don’t think I’d enjoy living in a home with a lot of folks coming & going or approaching me too quickly. Other than certain trigger points when being petted, I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, exercise & training. • MEDICAL:  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped & neutered.  I must be muzzled when I go to the vet as I do not like it there!  My trainers have worked with me on this skill, and I have done well so please ask about that. I am looking for a loving home with a caring family, perhaps you!  My adoption fee is $299.00, & I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.  May 18, 2024, 9:32 am

Story
LOOKING FOR A GREAT LEADER:  Approx. 7 years old / Approx. 12 lbs.    Hi there, I’m Ruff!  I came to Mostly Mutts from animal control, and I sure am happy to be in their care while I wait to find my new family to love!!  I’m a fun and spirited pup looking for a good leader to follow.  I got to spend some time in the prison/foster training program off site and learned a lot!  • OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS:  I met dogs recently at Mostly Mutts and I have shown that I am selective in which dogs I like.  I tend to get along with calm, mellow dogs that understand my boundaries and won’t be around me with food or treats.  If you have a nice doggie at home, let’s meet with my trainer and see if we can be pals.  / I was getting more acquainted with the cats in my foster home, and I did ok with the crated kittens I rode with in the car.  When I first met cats, I showed some prey drive to chase them if they ran, though I showed some improvement. If you have a dog-savvy cat at home, let’s meet.  / In my former foster home, there was an older teen who understood me and let me come to him for attention, petting and some good scratches, though sometimes I did still growl at him. I think older teens who understand my boundaries could be a fit for me, so let’s meet.  I’ve done some guarding of my bowls and some toys that contain food, so no younger kids.    • PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL:  I have a very sweet personality once I know you and I do best when people let me come to them.  I prefer that people get on my level to meet me; it helps me perceive you and understand that you are a friend as I am little.  If I am uncomfortable with someone new, I will growl.  In my former foster home, I did some alert barking and charged at visitors who entered my home without proper introduction first.  Once I know you, I am a super fun guy.  My trusted people can pick me up, give me baths, harness me, etc.  On a recent daytrip, a volunteer said I was a “good boy” who travels well and enjoyed playing with a squeaky toy.  / My energy level is 4 – 5. • SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY:  I’m a member of the Mostly Mutts University training program and have learned the ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘leave it’ and ‘place’ commands so far. I also use proper door etiquette and walk nicely on a leash, though I don’t really enjoy walks, so just super short walks for me.  I’m sure I’ll learn even more as I do follow my trainer’s leadership.  With my trainer, I’ve learned that I’m rewarded for calm behavior.  I need a family that will provide leadership and rules so that I don't feel the need to be the leader. / I do well in my crate, though you must let me come out on my own and reach in for me.  My trainer has learned that I only guard my crate if there is food, treats, or a soft toy in it.  / My potty manners have been good on the shelter schedule and in my former foster home. In my former foster home, I let my foster know I needed to go outside by sitting at her feet and staring at her. When she said ‘outside’ I ran to the door in excitement, so she understood I needed to go out. • LIKES/DISLIKES:  I love fetching squeaky balls and treats.  I will entertain myself with a toy or play with you.  I am a pretty chill guy who prefers going out for a quick tinkle and then right back in rather than a long walk.  Sitting on the bench and sunning myself a bit next to the nice volunteers is fun too. / I am cautious when new people approach and did get a hold of one visitor’s shoe/foot - I am more comfortable when new people let me initiate the interaction.  In the prison/foster program, I didn’t like it when the guards dressed in all black were around me and I also didn’t like when people would run by me.  I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, and training. • MEDICAL:  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and neutered. I take a joint supplement and fish oil daily for my skin and joints. I’ll thrive with a family that will provide me with good training and leadership.  My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.  May 18, 2024, 9:32 am

Story
LOOKING FOR A GREAT MATCH:  Approx. 8 years old / Approx. 9 lbs.    Hi, my name’s Marvin!  I came to Mostly Mutts from animal control.  I am so glad to be in a loving foster home while I wait for my new family to find me!  Come meet me soon and see if I am your new furry friend!  I came in heartworm positive, but I'll be treated for that soon. • OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS:  I met some dogs recently at Mostly Mutts and although I didn’t want to play with them, I also didn’t show any aggression.  I don’t mind my foster’s dogs either, one who is much bigger than me (60 lbs.) and another about my size (12 lbs.).  When they come to sniff me, I will wag my tail in approval.  If you have a nice dog at home, let’s meet and see if we can be pals.  / There are some nice kitties in my foster home who come and sniff me, rub up against me, etc. and I just stand there and let them!  I’m very tolerant of them and their curiosity about me so if you have a nice kitty at home already, let’s meet! / I met kids at Mostly Mutts (age 10+) and liked them.  However, in both of my foster homes, I started to guard my favorite person when company came over, so older kids such as teens and up will be best, and of course, let’s meet!         • PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL:  I am a sweet boy with a fun nature.  I love to relax and snuggle up to you.  I earned the reputation as a ‘velcro dog’ in my temporary foster home that I was in for 4 days – following my foster mom everywhere. I was cuddly and loving during my stay there.  My new foster mom agrees, stating that I should have been named ‘Shadow’ – I just love to be with my people!  I did start showing some guarding behaviors of my person and Mostly Mutts will be happy to help you with training to overcome that behavior as it is trainable. Since I respond well to verbal correction, my foster mom has given me a firm ‘no’ when I begin to guard, and this has helped me recognize that this is not a good boy behavior.  I was also sweet, fun, and friendly with the photographer when it was my time for a photo shoot!  / My energy level is currently 2-4. • SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY:  In my temporary foster home, I learned the ‘stay’ command, and was working on ‘sit’ and ‘place’ and showed good leash manners.  I love to learn and my new foster is working with me also so check back to see what else I master! / I don’t like being crated at Mostly Mutts as it seems to scare me and I acted tough in it when people approached me, so they moved me to a little room and I liked that better.  In my foster home, they use a baby gate to keep me in their room while they are away and I’m alright with that.  They also leave the TV on for me and I seem to enjoy that too.  I am vocal when I don’t like something, or when I need something, so an apartment/condo type home likely wouldn’t be the best home for me.  / My potty habits are pretty good on the shelter schedule, though I have done some marking.  I respond well to verbal correction, so when I marked once in my new foster home, they verbally corrected me, and I have not done it since.  My neuter and training should also help with that. • LIKES/DISLIKES:  I’m an affectionate guy who loves to collect cuddles. I love laps and being near my person. Napping and snuggling are my favorite things!  The volunteers have discovered that I love to sit out on the benches outside the shelter. Taking in the spring breeze and getting some pets, I can’t think of anything better!  I’m also a treat fan, and I am learning to take them more gently.  It helps to offer the treat in an open palm with the word ‘gentle’ before offering.  / I don’t like to be left alone too much, so I would love a stay-at-/work-from-home family member.  Otherwise, I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, exercise, and training. • MEDICAL:  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and neutered.  I have luxating patellas, which are not uncommon in small dogs. I take a daily joint supplement, Cosequin, to help my joints feel their best.  I also walk best with a harness, so it doesn’t push on my trachea making me cough. Unfortunately, my previous owner did not keep me on a monthly heartworm preventative, so I arrived heartworm positive. Thankfully, I’ve been treated for it and am in my recovery period now, which will conclude in June.  I will have my heartworm re-check in November.  I am still available for adoption during this time, but local adoption only, please.   I am looking for a home where I will be a much-loved family member!  My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.May 18, 2024, 9:32 am

Story
A SWEET LITTLE LAP DOG:  Approx. 8 years old / Approx. 10 lbs. Hi, my name is Ritzy!  I found myself in need of help when I was very pregnant and had a lot of hair loss – likely due to neglect.  I worked my way to Mostly Mutts, where I gave birth to and raised my babies in a wonderful foster home.  Now, with my mothering days behind me for good – it is time for me to find a home of my very own!   • OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS:  As a good momma, I was unsure and a bit afraid of other dogs in my foster home, as I wanted to protect my babies.  I’ve since met dogs at Mostly Mutts and wasn’t really interested in interacting with them, but I also didn’t show any aggression, so if you have a nice calm doggie at home, let’s meet and see if we can be pals! / Cats unknown. / I’m a fairly reserved girl, who will choose my person and the commotion of younger children will not be a good fit for me.  I think I’d do best in a home with older calm kids (15+), and of course, let’s meet! • PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL:  My former foster says that – true to my breed – I am a typical chihuahua who  will take my time to warm up, but once I know and love you, you are my angel and I’ll love you to death. I am happiest when I’m with my chosen person.  Being a lap dog is my calling, for sure!  With strangers, I will try to come off tough - barking and challenging them, but if you stand your ground, I did back down in my foster home. I’m pretty much scared of everything at first, so a nice calm home is my desire. / My energy level is 2 - 4. • SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY:  I’m pretty food-motivated, so I will likely learn quickly with yummy treats involved - lol.  / I did well in my little ‘bathroom condo’ in my former foster home with pee pads, and my potty habits have been pretty good since coming back to the shelter as well.  Please continue to be consistent with me on a good schedule, so I can fully master my potty skills in my new home. • LIKES/DISLIKES:  I LOVE being in my person’s lap and deserve to be spoiled.  A bit shy at first (give me 24 hours), that quickly melts away once I know you love me, so make room for me on your lap, please. A nice quiet type of home would be wonderful for me!  / I’m blustery with strangers at first, but – ignore me and I’ll likely calm down, like I did in my foster home.  Loud noises startle me at the shelter, even outside noises, so keep a good hold of my leash as I don’t want to get lost or hurt. Otherwise, I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, and training. • MEDICAL:  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and spayed.  I need a dental cleaning and maybe a few teeth pulled. If I’m adopted before that cleaning, Mostly Mutts will cover the cost with their vet, so local adoption please. I am looking for a great home with my special person to spoil me – someone to love and be loved by!  My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.  May 18, 2024, 9:32 am
