Dozer is a 6-year-old, tri-colored fellow who found himself homeless. He was treated for heartworms at a BHRG vet and is now ready for a forever home. This little guy is full of energy. He will require an active family and he will require a playmate. He loves playing chase and gets along great with other dogs and kids. He is not afraid of getting wet and loves going outside at 3am in the rain to use restroom and come back in and jump all over you. :-) He is totally housebroken with a dog door. Dozer can be a counter cruiser, so you will need to keep food away from him. He loves playing with toys - the more the better to throw around. He is very loving and caring and likes sleeping with his human. One issue that he does have is that he likes to sleep on his back, and he will just roll back and forth getting in different positions. He has fallen off the bed a couple of times in the process! He needs pillows around him like he's a child. Dozer will make a great addition to any home.

    Garth is a red & white boy who was previously adopted but was recently returned when his owner could no longer care for him. Garth is around 6 years old and is healthy, neutered, and ready to find a forever home. This handsome fellow rides well in the car and loves squeaky toys. He's been known to shoplift them in pet supply stores, so lookout! Garth is a big boy and is mostly red & white with some black hairs mingled in his dark red fur. Garth is friendly with people and other dogs, but is a bit too interested in cats.

    Howie is a 5 to 6 year old hound who was dumped at a woman's house in Conyers. He has completed treatment for heartworm and is currently living the King's life in Johns Creek while steadily working on his "fear" issues with grown men. He does well with "almost-grown" men, as he has a college-aged foster brother (human) who spends lots of time walking him and spoiling him. Howie, known as "Roger" in his foster home, has made significant improvement since coming to his foster home but will need some patience acclimating to men - preferring women and older kids. Roger is a GREAT leash walker and enjoys his fine Designer collar and dog beds (which are his for keeps). Since his mom grew up with the owner of the Tucker Pet Supply and he has his own account there (LOL). Has become protective of his female caregiver (Foster Mom). Roger is a bit skittish and nervous of loud sudden noises. However, he's also VERY snuggly, loves to be rubbed on his shoulders and we find him so sweet. He only seems to have an "accident" if he is startled by something or confused or fearful.

    Lloyd is a 10-year old tri-color male who is mostly deaf as a result of an ear ablation. While he may not be able to hear, that doesn't stop him from singing the song of his people at dinner time. This easy-going guy loves to eat and nap. He's a sweet boy who loves attention and playing with other dogs. Except for the gray on his face, you would not expect him to be a senior as he still has a lot of spark in his personality. Lloyd loves to be petted and enjoys playing with toys. He does well on walks and enjoys lying in the sun on a warm day. Please consider a senior as you won't regret it. Lloyd has a lot of love to give and is the perfect gentleman.

    Norton is a good-sized open tri-color boy with a lot of freckles. This 8-ish year-old fellow came to BHRG from the shelter in Barrow county where he was found as a stray. He has had all his shots and is neutered. He was positive for heartworms and has finished his treatment. He is so sweet, he loves to cuddle and will sit with you and on you for hours. If you are standing up he will come in front of you and flop over and whine for a good belly rub. He also loves to "give you five" as he throws up his one paw for you to touch it. He is a real talker and that is one things so special about him. He gets along wonderfully with the other three bassets in the foster home and also the blind poodle and Boston Terrier He is also good around the kitty of the house. However, Norton needs a home without small children. He walks very well on a leash and one of his favorite things to do is take a car ride. He is social to all he meets along the way if you take him to the local pet store or to the vet. If you come up on him too fast or speak loud he might be afraid. Due to his fear issues when he is being examined by the vet it is best for him to wear their muzzle. He is housetrained and will cry at the door to go out. He is a wonderful boy and very playful. He is submissive to other dogs. His family only has one female basset and he gets along well with both the two boys and the one girl. To understand the breed is so important when it comes to Norton, he is pure basset. He has never torn up anything in his foster home and is a gentleman when it comes to his food. He dances for his food - so cute. He needs a strong family that will help him remember the things he has learned at his foster home. Norton has some issues with certain things and his foster mom can explain all this better if you ever want to call her or come visit Norton. He has a hard time if anyone stands over him or gets into his face unless he knows you very well. He also has a hard time with anyone that speaks stern to him or uses a voice that makes him afraid. His foster mom feels that sometime in his life someone has been mean to him and so due to his fear of certain situations he is taking medication that he needs to take for the rest of his life. Once he goes to sleep it is better to not bother him, or if you must wake him to do it in a very gentle way. He needs a family that will understand his fear issues and be able to accept him for the wonderful basset boy he is. Watch my video!

    Walker came to BHRG from a northwest Georgia shelter where he was picked up as a stray. He is friendly with adults and other dogs, but a child-free home is probabaly best for him. He is a mellow boy who doesn't like playing as much as being your constant silent companion. If you're cooking, he will sit and watch. If you're watching TV, he will sit next to you but not in your lap. If you like to walk, he wants to go with you. Walker loves the car and doesn't even try to drive! If you're looking for a best friend, Walker is waiting for you.
