Posted Breed: American Bulldog / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Why Zeus? Because this guy is a silly goose of a dog who has no idea how tough he looks on the outside. He'll do anything for a treat and his crazy antics are always good for a laugh. Zeus also has a unique way of bonding with children, to include those with special needs. He was wonderfully therapeutic to an autistic child in foster. While he really prefers not to interact with other dogs, Zeus walks in a nice, controlled manner on a leash and can sit/focus on command. Zeus will arrive with a FREE TRAINING package to help him continue to practice these good manners when his adopters take the reigns. Zeus needs to be an only pet and does not thrive in the unpredictable chaos of 'off-leash' life and feels the need to proactively defend himself. Regular leash walks and/or a nice fence yard suit him just fine. He doesn't want to have to worry about chasing off any strange dogs or cats. This chunky hunk is quite simply a joyful people dog, who will absolutely love his people to bits and absorb all the love they give. Won't you consider springing this big guy out of boarding and into a home? He is so deserving and so ready to be your big lazy couch companion. See Zeus' videos on YouTube -- isn't he a good lil gentleman? http://bit.ly/adopt-zeus Age: 3-4 y/o Weight: 80 lbs Vetting: Neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and flea/heartworm free Training: Obedience-trained; comes with free classes! Temperament: Prefers to be only pet, good with kids; does not like dogs or cats Contact adopt@doggieharmony.org with questions or complete/send an Adoption Application. We look forward to hearing from you. This adoptable is not a Doggie Harmony animal, but a courtesy listing on behalf of the kind person who rescued and cares for this animal until it can find a forever home. There will likely be a fee to reimburse for the cost of its vetting/care; it will vary by rescuer/animal. Additionally, this rescuer will ask you to complete an application and allow a home visit to ensure pet is a good fit for your home/lifestyle. If you would like to proceed with the application, please go to www.doggieharmony.org > Forms > Adoption Application. Upon completion, you may send it to adopt@doggieharmony.org.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

A real ladies man who's great with other dogs! I am a pretty laid back sort of guy that my foster mom calls a “couch potato.” Some of my favorite things to do are chewing on a rawhide or bone, laying around on the sofa, and being loved on by my foster mom. I'm kind of a ladies man and if I could pick, I'd want to live with just women. But, I will try to make friends with men who are willing to work with me. I also enjoy having another dog in the home because they speak my language and can assure me I'm safe in my new home. I am crate trained and house broken. I am slim, trim, and sweet. I loved playing with my foster brother Jr. (who is smaller than me but is now in his forever home) but am very content when my foster mom pets me and loves on me. The only thing lacking is my forever home. Will you be my forever family? Vetting: Neutered, vaccinated and up-to-date on preventatives Training: House and crate-trained; need more socialization/training around men Temperament: Loves women; great with other dogs; older children preferred Contact this pet's foster/rescuer Deborah at dabvet2b@hotmail.com or 404-296-2729 with questions, or proceed with the Adoption Application.

This is one good-looking boy, named T-Bone. From the photos he appears black, but he is really a darkish brindle and quite handsome in person (pictures don't do him justice!). He is crated trained and gets along with all dogs, including a 12 lb Pekenese. He also does well with children and is non-reactive to cats. T-Bone is a lady’s man and follows me everywhere. He is young and energetic, so he may not be best suited for tiny children or apartment living, unless it's with an avid walker or jogger. T-Bone was found hiding behind a large clay pot in front of a community vegetable garden and what a find this guy is. He's quiet, sweet and just an all-around good boy.

      Age: Adult
      Location: Decatur, GA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever (short coat). Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. This handsome Prince prefers the company of female dogs. He also doesn't mind children (lives with a 5 y/o). He would love to have a home and a couch to call his own. Prince was found sleeping on a friend's backporch. They thought he would be gone the next day and left him alone. But when they got up, he was still here, just sitting quietly by their back door. They checked to see if he had a tag with any info, so they could report him being found, but instead his collar had a message which read "My name is Prince. I don't bite, Please love me". Looking at him you can see that is really all he wants, to be loved. Their backyard was not fenced, but he stayed all day and was sleeping in their garage. Prince is a high energy, but friendly dog. He seems to always be wagging his tail and is content to play with one of his lady-friend dogs at a time. Application and adoption fee required. Age: 4-5 y/o Weight: Temperament: Friendly to people of all sizes; gets along with female dogs Training: Crate and house-trained Vetting: Neutered, up-to-date on shots and on monthly preventatives Adoption Fee: $225 Contact adopt@doggieharmony.org with questions or complete/send an Adoption Application.

Rosser is tall, not so dark and handsome with a sexy patch over his left eye and he doesn’t mind wearing pink. He always has his chin up despite not having a good start to life; someone clipped his ears with just a pair of scissors as a pup, then dumped him as a teenager, only to be hit by a car and left to die. But someone saw him standing off the road and helped save his life. Rosser had a hole in his lung, dislocated leg and was bleeding from head to toe. He has since recovered from his injuries and needs a foster or home to call his own. He is a big fun pup and does well with female dogs and kids. He does like to chase and hunt small animals, so we are looking for a home without small dogs or cat to be safe.

Sheyenne has a beautiful brindle coat, narrow head, brown eyes and a quiet spirit. She can run like the wind and stop on a dime; she would make a great running or walking partner with her long stride and good leash manners. Sheyenne does well with other dogs of all sizes and gender and also with kids. Sheyenne’s was rescued from life in a backyard. Her humans got divorced and the husband took two of the dogs, but left Sheyenne and her mother behind. The wife and kids were afraid of large dogs and had little contact with them. Once rescued, Sheyenne was introduced to more and more humans and other canines, which increased her confidence. It takes some patience to win her over and she may always be a little weary of new people. But, she is quick to learn and improves with every new meeting. One thing is certain, anyone who befriends her will have a companion for life with this sweetheart.

Louie is perhaps the sweetest dog you'll ever encounter. He loves all people, including children. He also loves to sleep in the bed, if you let him, and appreciates the occasional cheeseburger or chicken fingers from his favorite drive thru. Louie seems to think he's a cat and would gladly curl up in your lap, if you let him. Boarding with other dogs has really helped him socially. He had a girlfriend in boarding that was adopted, leaving Louie lonely for love again. As long as his adopters take it slow and supervise initially, Louie would quite enjoy a compatible dog companion. But, no cats please. Life as an only dog would be quite fine with Louie too; he would be happy to absorb all of the attention. Whomever gets this fine fellow will experience the great love of a wonderful companion. Louie is the best buddy anyone could ask for and begs you to consider picking him, as he so deserves a life in a loving home after patiently boarding so long.

Leon (aka Chicken Wing) is a gorgeous male Belgian Malinois mix who was born with a deformed leg that had to be removed. Don't let the fact that Leon only has 3 legs fool you, he is still active and ready to work. He would do best in a home with and owner who is familiar with working breed dogs and lives alone. This boy is really good with everyone when he is out and about, but can get very attached to one person and get a bit protective of that person inside the home. So, Leon really needs an owner who is committed to working with him and making sure he gets plenty of exercise and socialization. Leon is currently attending training at Frogs to Dogs in Kirkwood to help him adjust to life as a tripaw and to continue his socialization with people and pups alike. His adoption fee will include a basic training package with Frogs to Dogs for his new family. This happy boy is anxious to make a permanent connection with family and friends to call his very own! Age: 2 y/o Weight: 50 lbs Temperament: Gets along with cats and dogs; home with older children preferred. Training: Can be protective of his person, but in-training and available for adopter/foster to continue at no cost. Vetting: Vaccinated, neutered and healthy.
