Story
When Casper smiles at you, and he smiles at you a lot, it feels like everything is right with the world. He's got a huge grin, and his whole face radiates joy. We've got a big crush on him! This sweet, meaty boy loves feeling the sun on his face and carrying around a tennis ball in his mouth. Casper can chase balls for days. He loves our off-leash play area, where he can run laps and roll in the dirt and leaves (his favorite thing). Casper is playful but also enjoys chilling with you. He's attentive with his friends and will check in with you when you're out walking. He also knows his basic skills, like sit and stay and wait. He'll do pretty much anything for a treat. Casper is able to pass other dogs without any issues and we're evaluating him to get a feel for how he might be with another dog in the house. His best fit would be a home with grownups who will play with him and take him for walks. He'd love a yard, and exercising with you would be his favorite thing. Casper has been with us a while, so he needs a little spoiling and encouragement to help him thrive in a home.

Story
We've known Hot Chocolate since he was just a baby, and we love his sweetness. Adopted as a puppy, he was returned as an adult, when the kids went off to college and the remaining family members felt they just no longer had the energy or wherewithal to give him the life he deserved. This is why we will always take our pets back: we know there's a better fit out there, and we believe we can find it for Hot Chocolate. He needs help catching up on some of the socialization and confidence building he missed out on. When you first meet him, Hot Chocolate is shy, but at the same time really, really wants to connect with you. He looks at you right in the eye, imploring you to notice him, to be his friend. Hot Chocolate has had to come back to PAWS a couple of times, and we suspect his bubble was too small early on: that he was taken care of but maybe under-socialized and undertrained. That said, he is smart and loyal and protective of his friends, and he has a huge heart. He's extremely treat motivated and has learned some of his basic skills. Hot Chocolate would love to find a match who can see his potential. Someone who is up for the challenge of helping him catch up on his social skills and rebuilding his confidence. In return, you will be getting a beautiful, sweet companion who will soak up every good thing you offer him. Hot Chocolate needs to be the only dog in his home and needs an adult home while he's working on his social skills.

She's just waiting for the right person to come scoop her up!

Story
Jacey, 9, has come a long way since she came to use from a feral community of dogs who lived along busy Moreland Avenue. Adjusting to life as a shelter dog has required a lot of courage and strength of this small shepherd-mix girl. We didn't want to push Jacey beyond her comfort zone, so we have moved slowly, and have been steadily working to gain her trust. It is working, and we think she is ready to find her home. She has found an incredible foster mom (our hero) who has taken her in with her own pup, and she has improved so much more since going home. She would love to live with another friendly dog in her adoptive home too. She just needs one more hero. She needs someone who can see beyond her fear and really see HER. Jacey needs a quiet, stable home with or without dogs, where she can relax. She needs someone patient, who will love and protect her. She feels vulnerable outside her routine, so she can be a flight risk. She needs someone to show her the ropes and help her find her way. Jacey may never be a traditional dog-park, socially adept "pet me" kind of dog, but she will still be a wonderful companion. She needs you. Her eyes say it all. No kids, please. Questions?

Story
We're just gonna say it: Elmer is a straight-up looker. Maybe it's the ginormous ears, or his freckled chest. Maybe it's that look in his eyes that tells you he has a lot on his mind and, at the same time... crickets. Okay, we're kidding about that last part. Elmer is a genius. A genius at being handsome. A genius at chasing tennis balls. A genius at being a very good boy. He's very friendly with people. We're not sure about children, because we haven't had a chance to observe him interacting with small-size humans. Elmer would like fly solo as your only pupper, if you're okay with that. Other dogs are not his jam. People are his jam. He's had a lot of experience living in a home and cannot wait to get back into one. Elmer was adopted in 2019. He recently had to come back to PAWS because his people were moving, which is a very common reason pets find themselves back in shelters. Come see about Elmer. He so wants to meet you and show you his tennis ball collection.

Story
Djibouti has been feeling a little stuck lately. This senior beefcake needs a little magic to help him live his best life. Djibouti has been at PAWS Atlanta for about two and a half years. He's had a bit of experience in a home, but it's never worked out for him. What he really wants is the stability of a forever family. Djibouti is a super-sized buddy at 84 pounds, and he comes with side dishes of goofball and mystery. He's endearing and loyal. He's also slightly awkward when meeting new friends. He'll roll over on his back and ask that you pet him, and then insist that you stop. In other words, Djibouti doesn't always have the confidence to know what he wants. Truthfully, he hasn't really been given the chance to explore the world to find out who he really is. Because he's still figuring things out, Djibouti needs someone who can learn to read him and work with him. He would like an adult home, preferably with someone who has dog experience. He thrives when he has a routine. Knowing what to expect and when to expect it would be a welcome change for him. He would do best as an only dog in the home. More than anything, he needs someone who can provide him a safe, loving home to transition beyond life in a shelter.
