Story
This a Bella a 9 month old lab mix I saw a post for her at the vet a couple days ago and really wanted to help her out of a bad situation. Unfortunately she doesn’t do well with our cats. she is very energetic and playful. she would do great with another big dog to play with to get her energy out. All of her vaccines are up to date and she is potty trained, and will come with toys, food, treats, and a collar and leash.

Story
This is Gaia, I am having to rehome her soon due to an upcoming deployment with the army national guard. I am not exactly sure what breed she is but I think she is either a German Shepard/ Mastiff mix or a German Shepard/Bloodhound Mix. She is very playful and ALWAYS wants cuddles. I had adopted her from the Douglas County Animal Shelter. She is a very outgoing dog with lots of energy. Also be ready to brush her alot and sweep and vacuum up hair as she sheds quite a lot. Also I am not charging anything to adopt her! I just want to make sure she gets put into a loving home and not a shelter! Please reach out if you have any other questions!

*URGENT HELP NEEDED* LOCATION OF DOGS: Dallas, GA NAME: Tiller AGE: 7 WEIGHT: 84lbs BREED OR MIX: German Shepherd NEUTERED: yes NAME: Layla AGE: 6 WEIGHT: 70lbs BREED OR MIX: German Shepherd (wire haired) SPAYED: yes BOTH: VACCINATED: rabies vaccine and heart worm test most recent August 2023 GOOD WITH KIDS: Yes ( slow introduction ) current human siblings age 2 and 9. Tiller is a jumper, Layla is a kiss giver. GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS: not socialized with other dogs besides one another. Layla is skittish, and can appear aggressive but I have never witnessed her attack or bite another dog. GOOD WITH CATS: no is the safe answer, I have not experienced anything, but would assume any small pets would need to be worked with on introduction. They both have retrieved small “visitors” they find in our yard. ARE YOU OPEN TO A RESCUE TAKING YOUR DOG: Yes, this is THE most ideal scenario ( we would prefer they stay together at all cost 🤞🏻) They show signs of separation anxiety even when

Story
Makara has been a part of our family since the day I rescued her from a box full of puppies in a McDonalds parking lot. She is about 10-11 years old now and really needs a new family who can care for her well into her senior years. She has always been a bit skiddish meeting new people but if she likes and trusts you she will let you know because you will be one of the only people she will stay near and let love on her. She grew up with an older dog brother and two kids as well so she is used to being around others, however she has never been a fan of the neighbor's dogs on the other side of the fence so she is probably best suited to be the only dog in the home unless she has had ample time to meet and warm up to another dog(preferably male).

Story
I rescued Barkley when he was a puppy. I’ve had him about 10 years. He really is the sweetest dog. However, he’s struggling with the young kids in the house and it’s become a situation I couldn’t live with if something happened. He has not bit the children, but he gets anxious and will go after the other dogs in the house when he’s stressed. He can be good aggressive near the kids and has snapped at them. He needs to be with a family that doesn’t have small children and where he’s the only dog. He loves to lay in the sun and to be loved on.
