Al is the sweetest gentleman that found himself at the shelter through no fault of his own. He is a very loving and affectionate soul. He seems to do very well around other dogs and people he has met thus far.

He LOVES to be near his people, but is not overly needy. Al is content to lay on his dog bed and take a nap near his foster mom while she works at home. He also has done very well when left alone to free roam in the house. He's housebroken and not destructive at all.

Al loves leashed walks in the neighborhood during the cooler hours of the day and walks very well on a leash, he's really a great, well mannered guy. Al would do best in a home without too many stairs and where someone is home often as he really enjoys the companionship. Even though Al is 11, he's in great health. He does have some skin issues that we feel may be allergy related since leaving his home but doing much better since he received a cytopoint injection at our vets office. If you think sweet Al is a good fit for your family, please mention him on your application or let the adoption coordinator know you'd like to be on his list if you are already approved. This guy deserves to spend his golden years in the comfort of a furever home...lets make that happen!

Hello, Rosie here....just wanted to stop in and introduce myself...again. I was adopted last year but now back with ABR. I have what some call a prey drive for small dogs/cats so it made walking difficult for my foster family. I lived with an older family and loved having them around alot. Because of my return, the rescue folks say I need a home with a fenced yard so there is no worry of encountering little dogs or cats. I'm a pretty low maintenance gal. I like to eat, sleep and repeat. Sometimes I get spunky and like to play with my toys. I can easily entertain myself and like to lay on my comfy bed....I can't wait to do that in my forever home. My foster mom had to leave to go help people who were affected by Hurricane Ida so now I'm in boarding....I don't know when she will return so I am hoping to find a foster or furever home. I am house trained and do well with free roam in the house, no destructive behavior. I would do best in a home without small children (teens would be great). I am also looking for a home as the only pet. I like to have my humans all to myself and give you lots of cuddles and kisses in return. If you are looking to add a gal like me to your life or would like to foster me while I wait for a forever family, just mention Rosie on your application.

Meet Roxy! This sweet girl came to ABR due to unfortunate circumstances through no fault of her own. She was very loved and well cared for and left the only home she has ever known. Roxy is settling into her temp foster home and has been given a clean bill of health to start her search for a furever family. She is a friendly girl who is calm and well mannered in the home. She's starting to show her playful personality by running in the yard, play-bows and playing fetch with her foster mom. Roxy is house and crate trained and likes to spend time in her crate relaxing. She has lived with 3 other dogs in her previous home, however right now, since she's left her pack, she is a little unsure of new dogs. We know the last few days have been a whirlwind for this girl, but we think in the right environment, time and proper introduction to other dogs she may be fine. Roxy would also be fine being the "only child" soaking up all the attention. Roxy has not been kid tested since coming to the rescue, but we were told she has lived with kids and we can tell she has a sweet, nurturing personality. If you are interested in finding a great pup, Roxy's your girl! Just mention Roxy on your application or if you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator to get on her list.

I may look like a Wookie but let me tell you I'm a real princess of a gir! I'm silly and sassy with a intergalactic amount of spunk. I am a little shy but have lots of energy to spend on running around and being playful. Young ones over the age of 13 would appreciate my idea of a good time! I'm a huge fan of attention and affection. There is no such thing as too many hugs or snuggles as far as I am concerned. I love attention so much, you won't have time to love other pets. You can feel comfortable leaving me home alone though as I have shown no signs of separation anxiety in my foster home. If you would like to bring me back to your Millennium Falcon please mention Leia on your app!

Meet Beck! He's a middle aged gentleman that still has a lot of spunk! Beck is house trained and knows a few tricks like sit, lay down and shake. He does well with other dogs, big and small, but does not like sharing his special things like food and high value treats (bones, chewies, etc), so those must be given separately. He does great with the kids in his foster home and loves getting attention. Beck loves to chase squirrels and tends to have a prey drive for little critters, so a no cat home is best. He would love a home with a fenced yard where he can get out and get his vitamin D and do his zoomies without worry. He's used to being in a home where he is not left alone often as he does love the company of his humans.

Beck is a sweet and gentle soul that has a face hard to resist. If you are interested in learning more about this sweet fella just mention Beck on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on his list.

Meet Sasha! You might recognize Sasha as she was recently posted with her adorable brood, but this Mama is done raising her pups and ready to soak in all the love from a family of her very own! Sasha is a lover to all humans big and small…seriously; you won't meet a sweeter girl! She is the perfect mix of chill with just enough sass to let you know she is there. Sasha just lays around in whatever room you are in, but she lets you know when she would like some attention. She doesn't get on the furniture unless invited and she loves her crate and dog bed. Don't let Sasha's age fool you, she is still a spunky girl and loves to play in short stints. She still has some zoomies left in her, so she would love a backyard to run and sunbathe. A fence is not necessary for Sash because she does not wander far and listens very well. Sasha is dog friendly but would also do great as an only dog, as she mostly just cares about her people. 

Sasha's foster family happens to think she is pretty much the perfect pup and would love to see her go to a family that adores her as much as they do. If she sounds like your perfect match, just mention her on your application. If you are already approved, let the adoption coordinator know you would like to be on her list.

Home Recommendation: Quieter home environment; no kids or other pets. Sweet Pea is still in need of a foster or furever home! She has been boarding for a year waiting on someone to open their heart and home for a special girl. Sweet Pea started in a board/train program to help work on her stranger reactivity (meeting new people). She has made leaps and bounds and has been ready for a family for a while now. Unfortunately, due to the unpredictability of the pandemic and lack of our active foster homes, Sweet Pea has spent all this time waiting for someone to say "YES". She is a silly and fun girl who bonds with her people who is sure to keep a smile on your face! Sweet Pea loves to go on walks and does well on the leash. She will never be a social butterfly, but that's ok! In the right home environment Sweet Pea will flourish and give you all the love and attention you need. ABR is committed to setting you and Sweet Pea up for success and will have a professional trainer available to assist in acclimating her to a new home and available for any future needs. Sweet Pea would love nothing more than to be out of boarding and into a cozy home and start living her best life yet....who's ready to say YES to this sweet girl?!

Meet Amelia! This sweet girl is looking to live out her golden years in the lap of luxury. Before coming to ABR, Amelia lived her life stuck in a backyard having puppies. She deserves nothing but the best from here on out!

Amelia is one of the most vocal dogs we have ever had. She talks to let us know she's hungry, she talks to let us know she's ready for her walks, and she loves to let us know when she's ready to snuggle up and take a nap. Be prepared for a lot of conversations with this girl!

Amelia does have some separation anxiety and would do best with a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time. Amelia is house trained and does well left to free roam. She is kennel trained but being left in the kennel causes her a lot of unnecessary stress. She does not like it, and she will tell you!

Amelia would be happiest in a home with older children that understand her deafness, and the fact that she can startle easily. She's been known to snap if she's startled awake. Amelia lives with three other dogs and two cats. She does not play and has no interest in playing with the dogs and ignores the cats. She would love a low energy dog that will snuggle and nap with her. She is all about the naps!

The best way to describe Amelia is to say that she is an experience! She talks to us, loves sitting in laps, is goofy, silly and just a lovebug. She loves being with her people, loves getting pets and hugs and kisses, and loves curling up in laps for a nap. If you need a retired professional snuggler, please put Amelia on your application!

Belle is your typical young boxer with a fun and loving personality! She's a sweet girl that can be a little timid and nervous initially and needs a family that will take things slow allowing her some time to acclimate to a new home. Belle loves everyone and is all about getting lots of love and attention. She loves playing with her toys, but is always ready to snuggle up on the couch beside you!

While she has done well with her fur-siblings in her foster home, she has not been as lucky adjusting to other dogs outside the home, so she'd probably do best where she can be the one and only pup soaking up all the love for herself.

Belle will need a fenced yard (5 ft or higher) so she can do zoomies and get her boxer energy out. She is house trained and has shown no destructive behavior in her foster home. Belle would not do well with a full-time working family as she craves companionship. She loves people and just wants to be near.

If you are looking for a fun, sweet love bug, Belle might be your girl! Just mention Belle on your application. Already approved? Ask the adoption coordinator to add you to her list.

Ellie is your typical sweet and sassy older gal. She's a bit of a talker and will let you know when she needs something like a cuddle, food, go outside or just pay attention to her! Some of you may remember Ellie from several months ago when she came to ABR with an almost 8 lb tumor on her side. One of our amazing vets at Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic performed the surgery to remove it and she's been in recovery all this time waiting for the incision site to completely heal, with the help of Vetrix (a type of skin graft). Poor Ellie had to spend the first 8 weeks after surgery in medical boarding getting multiple bandage changes during the week, then was allowed to go to a foster home on the weekends. She was finally discharged a few weeks ago and enjoyed the much needed freedom in a loving home environment! Ellie is house and crate trained and also does well with free roam. She has done well with the children she has met, as well as the dogs she has encountered. She is a very sweet girl that is looking for a companion to live out her golden years. Ellie has been through so much and we hope we can find her a home where she never has to worry about leaving again. She's one tough cookie and we know she will bring lots of happiness to a special family.

Mason

Mason

~5 Years

Male

January

Mason was found as a stray in Atlanta and waiting for help at a local shelter. He came to ABR very thin and with a bad upper respiratory infection. He's gaining weight and has since recovered from his infection, but unfortunately we found out he has Cardiomyopathy. He is taking daily medication to help with his diagnosis which he will continue to take the rest of his life. Because of this condition, Mason may have a limited life span...but we never know what his future holds. He would do best in a less active home as he shouldn't run or get too much exercise though he can be a normal pup and enjoy moderate walks and playing with his toys. He has a few more follow up vet visits and we will be getting a few lumps checked out to ensure he's healthy for adoption...that's the bad news.

The good news is that he is super adorable and he has a great personality. He will "talk", play with stuffed toys or a ball and he loves his crate. Even though he has free roam in his foster home, he prefers his crate and is often relaxing or sleeping in it. Mason is house trained and walks gently on a leash. He only pulls if he is excited about a car ride. He is on the smaller side and probably could gain a few more pounds. He has the cutest underbite which shows one tooth sticking out at times, you can't help to fall in love with him. Mason seems to take more to women than men, though he is fine with his foster dad, it took a little while for him to come around. It may take slow introductions to new men before he is comfortable. He and his foster fur brother, have become great friends, they enjoy each others company. He's a great little companion that makes his foster parents laugh and Mason easy to love. He would do well in the home of an older woman or couple, retiree, quieter home. He's really an easy dog to care for and doesn't require much except love. Mason will bring lots of joy to a special family for whatever length of time he has left on this earth. We are optimistic that with the appropriate home, vet care and medicine, he will have many happy years. If Mason sounds like a match for you, just mention his name on your application. Or is you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on his list.
