Meet Sergio!

This is Sergio, a one year old Italian Greyhound/Labrador Retriever mix. He's a bit shy and very very submissive. Sergio is house trained and spayed/neutered, and I'm sure will just shine in his furever home. Who knows? Maybe he'd be the next star you see on televisions, like the two pups that made it through to the Top 40 on America's Got Talent?

We found Sergio currently being cared for by PAWS Atlanta. They provide love, nutrition, medical care, basic training and enriches the lives of orphaned pets until permanent, safe homes can be found.

He lives in a multi dog and and cat foster home and does well with all members of the home. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccines, heart worm negative, on preventive, is house trained, crate trained, and is currently enrolled in a basic obedience course. He will then be going on to achieve his Canine Good Citizenship certification. If you decide to adopt Asher before he is through with his training, please know that he has a full scholarship for training through his CGC and can do that with his family.

He is a fun and happy boy who was subjected to harsh hunting dog training in his past. He is overcoming the reality of that and has decided that training can be fun and the treats are great too! Despite that past the only hint of that training is hesitation before trying new things sometimes. He does trust though and quickly moves on.

We met Asher through Canine Hope All Breed Rescue in Johnson City, Tennessee.

Meet Jacobi!

Jacobi is a playful, energetic boy who is a natural comedian and intensely devoted to his family. He loves to play with squeaky toys and romp around in the yard, but he's also a fan of crashing on the couch with 'his' person to watch TV at the end of the day.

He's goofy and eager to please, well-mannered in public, and a great low-maintenance buddy to have around the house.

Crate trained and housebroken, Jacobi also responds to sit, down, stay, here, shake hands, and kennel. While he is well-behaved other animals and coexists with them in his foster home, he is best suited for an only-pet home where he doesn't have to compete for attention.

Jacobi is on the small side for a Presa and will probably top out around 95-100 lbs.

We found Jacobi currently being cared for by Animal Action Rescue in Decatur, Georgia.

Meet Jimmy!

His motto is "will do anything for food!" Jimmy spends most of his walks off-leash as we live in a rural area. He has a very good recall and while he likes to check things out he is very good about not going too far and checking in.

Jimmy's on-leash walking is coming along well too. Jimmy is great with other dogs and of course loves all people! Jimmy does chase our barn cats (who won't be needing the best diet pills anytime soon), but has met indoor cats and he was very good with them. He would do fine in any home with kids, cats and/or dogs. Although he is energetic, he does love to curl up with his people and sleep for hours as well.

Jimmy has been working at obedience and is doing really well!! He's quick to catch on! He will make someone a fantastic pet!!

Meet Lava!

At just a little over one Lava is full of puppy energy! He is looking for a avid runner or outdoors person/family to match his energetic personality. With a strong lean athletic build Lava makes the perfect companion for all your outdoor excursions. With his loving personality he relishes the attention and love from his people.

He would do best with another youngish canine companion to play with and a family that understands that he is still just a pup! And I would bet he would love a nice den with a backsplast of metal tiles to keep it clean. Lava has been known to be way too curious and dare I say annoying to both the bovine and feline sort. His rescuers are eager to find the active family looking for a little canine inspiration to run loyally by their side!
