Livi - Athens, GA

Meet Livi!  She is a 10-12 yr old, 6.3 lb, female spayed Min Pin.

Pure-bred and adorable Livi is a tiny little girl who adores her food in spite of the fact she only has five teeth left. She had 19 removed during a dental and was already missing 18 prior to coming into rescue. She has been fully vetted!

She is a very sweet girl who wants nothing more than to be someone's lap dog. She is so loving!! She will jump up at legs so people will pick her up, and if that fails to work, she will begin to whine while spinning in circles. She is people oriented, particularly towards women, and does well with calm dogs. Playful pups tend to overwhelm her since she has limited vision in her remaining eye. Her right eye was removed due to uncontrollable glaucoma, so we are doing whatever necessary to make sure her left eye remains safe and free of glaucoma.

 

Like many older dogs, Livi also has arthritis and may need lifelong medication for that. We are currently exploring options as she seems to be allergic to the more common meds used. Livi is both crate and house trained. She does not know what a leash is at all and will only walk very tentatively on one. however, in a fenced yard, she loves to explore and hangs out in the sun on warm days. When not outdoors, she can be found under a blanket next to her foster mom or on her foster mom's lap. Due to her small size, we do not recommend for Livi to go to a home with children.  Livi's rescue would like her to stay relatively local to her rescue.  If interested in making this sweet girl a permanent part of your family, please complete an adoption application at http://tinyurl.com/mpmrapp You may also email: mpmrgeorgia@gmail.com

MacArthur - Savannah, GA (7/19/20)

Meet MacArthur!  He is a 2 yr old, 15 lb, male rat terrier.

MacArthur is a highly social and affectionate boy who is just happy to be here, wherever that may be!  He has such a joy for life that he has no idea anything is wrong with him!  We think he is just perfect as he is and we know that someone out there will want to add this adorable boy to their family! He has so much love to give, he will do his best to chase you down so he can give you kisses.

 

He is paraplegic, so he will need a family that either has experience with disabled dogs or is willing to take on the real  commitment of caring for him. The fact that he is so small makes helping him much easier!  Although he gets around just fine as he is right now, he will probably need some sort of mobility assistance and he also needs help going to the bathroom.

 

He has completely charmed everyone at the shelter and makes fast friends with everyone he meets. We are not sure what happened to him or when. According to our veterinarian he has not been paralyzed for very long, but he seems to have adjusted quickly and has not let his injury slow him down.

MacArthur is great with kids and all other animals.  He is available for adoption within 300 miles of his shelter.  For all inquiries, please email: Sbharper@chathamcounty.org  or call 912-652-6575.

Bella - Conyers, GA  (8/30/20)

Meet Bella, featured here with her sister Tinkerbelle!  She is a 10 yr old, 40 lb, female spayed Cairn Terrier mix.

Bella (and her Chow mix "sister", Tinkerbelle) had their worlds turned upside down when their lifelong momma passed away. None of the family wanted to keep them in their golden years, so they found themselves at a local animal control. A shelter senior is sad enough, but sweet Tinkerbelle was always on edge worrying about her sister Bella, who is paralyzed from the waist down! Poor things were terrified.

 

When we saw these sweet faces, we knew they needed out as soon as possible. As soon as they broke out of doggy jail, their personalities blossomed! Bella, the Cairn Terrier mix, received a wheelchair upon her arrival at Old Dog Home and is THRIVING with her newfound freedom. Once those wheels hit the floor, good luck keeping up with her! Other than her paralysis, which clearly does not slow her down, Bella has no other health issues and is looking for her Forever Home (or racetrack, whichever you want to call it)! She loves people of all kinds (including kids!), but she would prefer not to have to share your love and affection with too many other dogs. She wants to be your star!

 

Bella can control her bowels for the most part, and caring for a paralyzed dog is much simpler than you might imagine. We will be sending her with her wheelchair, and we can help teach you anything you need to know about giving her her best life! She's a nice easy size for this kind of care.

 

Bella and Tinkerbelle are available for adoption either together or separately, as they have shown massive improvements since growing more independent from one another. Please contact us to learn more about these girls! They have been here for several months now, and they deserve to find their own Forever Home(s).  They are available for adoption anywhere in the US and their rescue can help arrange transport.  For all information, please email: support@olddoghomega.com .

Tinkerbelle - Conyers, GA  (8/30/20)

Meet Tinkerbelle!  She is a 12 yr old, 60 lb, female spayed, Golden Retriever/Chow mix.

Sweet Tinkerbelle was at the shelter with her paralyzed sister Bella (read Bella's description above).  As soon as we rescued them from the shelter, their personalities blossomed! So terrified in the shelter, Tinkerbelle was able to relax knowing that her sister was safe.

 

This previously shy, stand off-ish girl learned that it was okay to give her sister some space and is loving her new independence! Tink is house trained, quiet, calm, and easygoing. She is that dream "old dog" that people often imagine - no fuss!

 

She is low heartworm positive and currently undergoing the slow kill treatment for that, and she does have some mild skin allergies, but overall, she is quite healthy for an older dog and ready to find her Forever Family.
