Anessa is a tri-colored girl who has Cushings Disease which is easily treated with one pill each morning. She is a very gentle and sweet hound. She's about 9 years old & is somewhat petite, about 35 lbs. Anessa is extremely affectionate and is a big nuzzler. She does okay with stairs and the dog door. She has a bit of a spring in her step and has a healthy appetite. Even though she was found as a stray she has adapted very well to her new surroundings. She gets along great with everyone - other dogs and even cats. She is somewhat playful but in no way aggressive. House training is also going very well.

Daniel came to BHRG from the shelter in Floyd County where his owners left him. This red & white boy is 9 years old. He is healthy, neutered, and ready for adoption. He loves all kinds of attention. He likes to play with the other dogs in our home. He is nearly housetrained and is doing well with his crate training. Even though he was left to fend for himself, he hasn't displayed any food aggression towards the other dogs. His ears are so long that they lay in his water bowl when he is drinking. He loves to go for walks with his foster family and walks very well on his leash. He's very loving, has been starved for affection, and really needs a stable home. We think his name should be "George", as in Curious George, because he is always snooping around and looking for something to investigate. He is super-protective of his "person" and needs a dog-savvy, "alpha" person who can discipline him and keep him from being a "brat". A home without children would be best for Daniel.

Ludwig was picked up as a stray in Gwinnett County. This senior gentleman is friendly with people and other dogs. Ludwig is neutered and up-to-date on shots. He has a chronic right ear infection and is allergic to corn, yeast, wheat, gluten, salmon, rice, white potatoes, and he has some contact allergies. He is now 100% blind and at least 50% deaf. Ludwig has been sick for a long time, so his disposition is not always happy-go-lucky, and this is understandable. He takes SSRI for aggression. Ludwig enjoys going on car rides and really enjoys short, slow walks when the weather is cool. He loves to sunbathe in the driveway but hates walking in the heat and will just stop if has had enough! He requires a home that will have time to prepare his meals like a human since he is on a very strict diet. It is understood that he may have abandonment issues as he becomes depressed when left alone. We are lucky in that we work opposite schedules and have an excellent dogsitter. Ludwig sometimes needs reassurance now that he can no longer see. He sleeps in our bed and will sometimes stand at the bed and bark if he is ready to go to sleep and we are not. LUDWIG IS TERRIFIED OF THUNDER AND FIREWORKS! Ludwig may snap if he has been sleeping and someone tries to pet him - typical of deaf and/or blind dogs. Even with these issues, Ludwig is a doll and so, so very loving. He would do so well in a family with just adults who have the time, patience, and love to devote to him.

Paris is a 10-ish year old red & white lady who came to us as a stray from animal control. She is blind, but not helpless. She is getting around well in her new foster home. And, apparently she is a big cuddle bug who gets along with her canine foster siblings. She is great with her 10-year-old human foster brother, but due to her blindness, small children are not recommended as they could scare her,

Silvie was found as a stray in middle Georgia. She is a black, tri-colored girl who is being seen by a BHRG vet for a stage 5 heart murmur. This 3-year-old is waiting for a foster home. She says... "Hi everyone. I'm not ready for adoption yet but I wanna tell all y'all about me! I have a serious heart murmur but I've never heard it and as long as I take my pills every day I do very well. My foster family thinks I might have been a yard dog because I had to be taught the stairs, I'm learning to take my turn at mealtime and treats time and I'm easily spooked. I'm learning that it's more fun to be around my family than to stay on my bed in the downstairs den. I have more skills to learn but we're working on them. I like to go on walks but I tend to walk across in front of Mom or something will come up behind me and eat me - Mom reassures me and tell me nothing will hurt me ever again. I haven't had much love in my life so I try to climb into your lap. I'm mostly a quiet dog right now but I just know that the right family will give me the opportunity to become the real, happy ME!"
