Tia is an approximately 1-2 year old American Bulldog/Lab mix pup. She was found roaming the streets and was brought to a very high kill shelter in GA. Tia was used for breeding and her last litter of puppies were sold off at 3-4 weeks old. Tia came to the shelter, full of milk that was hardening up, she was severely underweight and full of worms. She also had sores all over her body. This poor baby was severely neglected. Her time was up at the shelter and she was set to be euthanized when Whiskers Fund stepped in to save her beautiful soul.
Now that Tia is back to being healthy, she is starting to show us her personality.
Tia is VERY smart. She knows lots of commands like sit, stay, beg, load up and she is easy to train. This girl is pretty much perfect. She does very well in the car.... as long as she is NOT crated in the car. She will let you know her displeasure of being crated in the car and would prefer to ride shotgun or at least in the back seat- I mean who can blame her! Tia has shown a bit of separation anxiety, but that has gotten better since she has left the shelter and we believe will continue to improve as she settles into her forever home.
Tia has a fair amount of energy and she really just wants to do whatever you are doing. If you are playing, she wants to play, if you are hanging and watching TV, well she is hanging and watching TV with you. Tia really just wants to always be with you, whether you are headed out on an adventure or staying home and cuddling up on the couch or in bed - so if you’re not into dogs on the fur-niture, she might not be the dog for you.
If you think you are the right match for her, please apply to adopt here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScq8ShXPVGLfrGHlIYMk0plgI_PJxOEMdr8QItpQMXYCnluvg/view-form
The adoption fee is $550.
All of our animals are fully vetted before going to their furever homes. They are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, dewormed, up to date on flea/tick prevention, heartworm prevention, and microchipped!
Please Note: All animals are posted until they are officially adopted. This animal may have other interested adopters in line.
We are very quick to respond and process applications! You will be required to provide 2 non family personal references, a home video tour and a vet reference if you’ve previously had animals. Please feel free to send video to our email or facebook upon submitting an application, this lets us know you are serious and ready but also helps us to get you approved quickly. We will text and or call upon receiving your application to schedule a phone interview.
You must be an approved adopter in order to go on meet and greets. This saves everyone’s time- especially our gracious foster families! This also allows for you to take the animals home from the meet and greet if you so choose.
Interested in fostering? We would love to have you join our family! Fill out the same application above- we have our fosters go through the same process as adopters!
