Mason is a 6 year old Border Collie/Papillon mix. He loves to herd his younger brothers and cuddle with Mom and Dad. He likes to bark and protect his family from the dangers outside the house: squirrels, loud trucks, the mailman, and the UPS man. Mason is known as the “sheriff” at the dog park because he loves to herd and be in control. Submitted by Lauren K.
This is Pongo. He is a rescue so we are not sure of his breed. They think he has Great Pyrenees, Australian Shepherd, Cattle Dog, and Terrier in him. Pongo is six months old. He is a spunky little guy who absolutely loves to play with hangers. In fact, he almost always gets stuck in them while playing and is always running around with one attached. Submitted by Lauren K.

Abbie is a one year old Cattledog mix. Abbie is a very sweet girl, and she gets along with several of the dogs here at the shelter. Abbie is a super fun and very loyal dog. And she loves, loves, loves the water! Abbie would be an excellent companion for hiking, camping, or a day at the lake. Abbie has been here so long, now 250 plus days, that she seems desperate to get someone to notice her. She just can’t understand why no one wants her. She does her best to get attention when someone comes in. She absolutely gives the best kisses and wants nothing more than to be next to you and loved. Yet day after day she watches as everyone passes her by. If only someone would take the time to get to know her instead of judging her right away by her behavior behind bars. Give her the time to know you before judging her shyness when you first take her out. There has to be someone out there for this beautiful girl. Submitted by the Humane Society Morgan County Georgia.
Update… 275 days later, Abbie has found her family… She was not overlooked this time. Congratulations sweet girl, we are so happy for you!
Shadow, who was known as Pongo at the rescue shelter, is growing like a weed and has fit into our family perfectly. He earned his name by always following us around, like a little Shadow. He makes us laugh at his antics all the time, he is such a joy. Thank you SO much! Submitted by the adopting family from the Humane Society Morgan County Georgia.

Less than four months ago we had to put our Bentley to sleep. He was over 14 years old and an incredibly bright dog who our neighbors nick-named Houdini because of his uncanny ability to escape closed windows and jump over eight foot fences. He loved people and loved his sister and litter mate Ginger. She was deaf from birth but you would never know it. Bentley and Ginger were absolutely the most beautiful Dalmatians you have ever seen. Well, three months before we had to put Bentley down we had to put Ginger to sleep. My wife Nancy and I miss them terribly but know they are happier where they are today. I never realized how much we loved the two of them. We cried for weeks. Submitted by Tom M.
