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! Her foster family adores her and said she is the easiest dog that has ever been through their home. Sasha is the perfect mix of chill with just enough sass to let you know she is there. Usually she 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. Don't let Sasha's age fool you, she is still a spunky girl and loves to play in short stints.

Sasha is dog friendly with a slow introduction. She does play a little bossy and is very mouthy (barking) when she plays, so a more submissive dog might be best for her. She has done great with both, the male and female fur sibling in her home, but the female fur sibling looks at her crazy and runs off….she is not every dog's type of play. Sasha would also do great as an only dog, as she mostly just cares about her people.

The only area that Sasha needs work is barking at the door - she is quick to let you know when there are deliveries or people walking in the neighborhood. For this reason, she might not be best for apartment life. She does listen when she is told to stop barking and this behavior could likely be stopped with consistent correction. Sash also barks when visitors come to the home but she quickly settles and is always friendly when actually meeting.

Sasha's foster family happens to think she is pretty much the perfect pup and would love to see her go to an amazing 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.

Meet Elsa, a lover through and through. She picks her "owner" and loves that one person endlessly but is certainly open to all humans big and small. She does well with loud noises, commotion or a laid back atmosphere. She is house and crate trained and would love a home with a fenced yard. Elsa has not shown any destructive behavior (unless they are her toys). She loves to play and will go until you are ready to be done...although sometimes she would prefer to play longer too! She walks well on a leash and doesn't seem to mind other dogs but doesn't necessarily need another dog to be happy either. Elsa still acts like a puppy at heart and did we say she loves to be around her people?! She has shown no food or toy aggression since being in her foster home and cannot wait to find her furever family. Elsa's sure to thaw any frozen heart! If Elsa sounds like a great match, just mention her on your application. If you are already approved, email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on her list.

Hi my name is Ginger you know the movie star? I'm a very sweet older girl. My foster mom says that I'm a velcro dog because I like to be by her side all the time. I'm very playful and energetic for my age. Don't let my little gray face fool you because I have quite a bit of energy and lots of wiggles to give. I love to give kisses and I get along very well with the other dogs that live with my foster mom.

One of my favorite things is to roll on my back and let my foster mommy pet my belly because it makes me very happy. If I sound like your leading lady then just mention Ginger on your application. Already approved? Email the adoption coordinator and ask to be on my 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.

Oh Trooper with the sweetest little face! And the sweetest personality to match. He loves short walks around the neighborhood, rolling on the grass and lots of snooze fest! He also likes to show off his little bounce when he's feeling a little frisky. He seems a bit shy at first, but warms up when you give him bacon. Being a lil older gentleman, he would probably prefer a house with very little to no stairs. While he gets along with his foster brother, his foster mom has not tested him with kids or smaller/younger pets quite yet. He seems house and leash trained. Crate has not been tested yet but will more than likely be okay as free roam.

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 (affectionately called "Archie" by his foster parents) 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, Archie 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. Archie 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. Archie 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 Archie 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. Archie 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 Archie 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.
