Holly
Age: 1 year
Breed: Golden Retriever
Gender: Female — Spayed!
Weight: 39 pounds
Impound Date: 12/4/09
Ledger #: 29490
Why choose me?

Holly is one-in-a-million! She’s a petite golden retriever with a gorgeous silky, light gold coat. She knows how to walk politely on the leash and how to sit and down on command. She’s definitely a submissive girl and will lay down or roll over on to her back with little urging. She had no problem allowing me to check her ears, teeth, or paws. Golden Retrievers make wonderful family dogs, especially when they have been properly socialized and are exercised regularly, and I’m sure that sweet Holly would love to prove that to you. Holly is already spayed, so she only needs to have her vaccines updated before she can go to her new family. Hurry in to meet this absolutely wonderful girl so she can brighten your home during the holidays!

Dasher

Age: 3 years
Breed: Collie/Golden Retriever Mix
Gender: Male
Weight: 56 pounds
Impound Date: 12/5/09
Ledger #: 29493
Why choose me?

Dasher is a handsome young man who looks like he might be a collie/golden retriever mix, but that’s just a guess. When I met him, he was still hanging out in a temporary kennel because all of the runs were full. He was having a hard time adjusting to his surroundings and didn’t want to leave the security of his little kennel. Once I got him outside, he settled down a bit, but still wasn’t interested in looking at the camera. He’s definitely a submissive boy who has probably never been properly socialized. He gets a little nervous on the leash, but still walks on the leash with few problems. He has an old injury on his left ear that’s still in the healing process and would sometimes favor his back left leg; none of these injuries seem to bother him too much. Dasher is a handsome fellow who would love e a nice, loving home where he can learn how to be part of a family.

I am also going to post this puppy since his time is up... not a golden

Age: 2 Months
Breed: Lab Mix
Gender: Female
Impound Date: 12/1
Ledger #: 29472
Weight: 10lb
Avery just came in while we were taking pictures, and she is very scared. It took her a little bit to figure out what it was that I was offering her, but soon decided that hot dog is very tasty. It didn’t take her long to warm up to us in an interaction pen, and she seemed to like just laying in my lap. Avery is also one smart pup; we taught her to sit in no time at all.

I will e-mail rescues

Oh, I know that feeling - I've been talking her up to my husband - small, submissive, . . . But, no sale. :(

Thanks for posting these two and contacting rescues FinnTastic - I came to do the same.

Amy - Athens has a new forum and there are some very active local volunteers - if you're really interested, I'm sure one of them could check Holly with other dogs.

I called my Mom to talk about adopting Holly...but shes right, I am working 2 jobs and not even making ends meet, so I really cannot afford another dog. I keep going back and looking at her picture and telling myself, shes such a beauty I know she will be adopted soon. UGH if only things were different.......I dont know what it is about her...

I just got this e-mail from Adopt a Golden
Thank you for your email! GRRA (Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta) covers this shelter and they are going to rescue her if she is not adopted.

They didn't mention anything about the mix.

Sadly, I think both GRRA and AGA are very full right now and may not be taking any mixes. I usually send mixes to Atlanta Dog Squad, but I think they are full also. :(

On the bright side, Athens has been doing pretty well with adoptions and both these guys would be very adoptable. But, you can't take anything for granted - I understand space is at a premium right now because they have a bunch of dogs from a cruelty case that have to be held indefinitely.

Per the Athens Pets forum, Holly has 10 applications! :)

No word on Dasher, - but, maybe someone who wanted Holly and doesn't get her will apply for Dasher. :crossfing He's a cutie too!
