These two beautiful boys are at Athens - Clarke County Animal Control, in Athens, GA

http://www.athenspets.net/?cat=6

Gunther – 29037


Available!


  • Age: 2 years
  • Breed: Retriever mix
  • Gender: Male
  • Impound Date: 9/22
  • Ledger: 29037
Gunther is a doll. He is currently rather underweight, so his ribs, hips and skull protrude slightly and his coat isn’t as shiny and soft as it should be. A regular diet and some care should be enough to change all of that and make his outsides match his amazing personality. Gunther is certainly a retriever mix- he has the wonderfully affectionate and loyal personality of a Golden Retriever but with shorter fur. And boy does he love a tennis ball! Dogs’ reactions to when you ‘fake them out’ by pretending to throw a ball are always pretty funny, but no dog has ever been as animated as sweet Gunther here. He is like a little puppy! Gunther is listed as two years old, but his personality and dazzling smile tell me he may be closer to a year old. It’d be wonderful to see this dog go through the transformation from under-nourished and homeless to a handsome and well-loved member of the family.
Update 9/28: Gunther is running out of time and all he wants to do is run after tennis balls all day long! Please can someone give him a good home?

Billy – #29075


Available!


  • Billy – #29075
  • 3 years
  • Golden Retriever Mix
  • Male – Neutered!
  • Impound date 9/27/09
Why Choose Me?
Billy is a 3 year old NEUTERED male golden retriever mix. When we got to the pound today there was a group of people playing with him in the lobby area. He had just gotten there, and he was already the life of the place. Then when we got to his kennel to take his picture he was very mild mannered and even a little shy at first. He let me love on him a good bit and then we just took his picture and let him be. I’m sure it’s been a long day for this fella. He is a super sweet guy with a great personality. He seems pretty well taken care of and socialized with people and other dogs. Come see Billy today for yourself!

Per SGD, Gunther has an adoption application, and AGA as a back up. No further word on Billy.

Yes - I included both Gunther and Billy in my e-mail. I sent it to AGA, GRRA, and Atlanta Dog Squad.

They are both still on the available section of Athens website
Yes, I noticed that too - and it concerns me. However, it is posted on both SGD and the Lab Forum that Gunther has an app and Lexi at AGA will take him if the app falls through. I haven't received a response to my e-mail and both AGA and GRRA are usually pretty good about responding if they can help.

Maybe some more e-mails would help - if any one feels so inclined?

I can e-mail, but what is it I should say in the e-mail? Who should I e-mail?
I usually say that I wanted to make sure the were aware of these goldens/mixes and include pretty much what is in the first post on this thread.

I have e-mailed AGA ([email protected]), GRRA ([email protected]), and Atlanta Dog Squad ([email protected]). You could contact them again, just to be sure they got the message. Or, if you want to try some other places, Karen sent me to http://www.spotsociety.org/atl_shelter_list.htm

I can try to contact some of them tomorrow too.

Karen - I think only Gunther is safe for sure. I will try to make some additional contacts for Billy later today - I'm on my way out now.

Yeah, I don't know anything about Billy. They didn't mention it in their e-mails. I've also been e-mailing on behalf of Brother who is at Athens with not much time left. I hope something can be done for him.

I e-mailed AGA, GRRA, and Atlanta Dog Squad again about Billy. I also sent his information and Brother's to quite a few of the agencies listed on the Spot Society list.

Hoping for the best for both of these guys!

I just checked the Athens website and it says that all the dogs mentioned above are still available. I don't know how often they update they website. Just a FYI for everyone.

WooHoo ..... I just looked at the Athens website and saw that Brother ( I have e-mailing like crazy for him) was rescued. Even though it says that Gunther is still available, one of the comments suggested that we was pulled by Adopt a Golden today.

Not so WooHoo ...... It says that Billy is still available.

Yes, Gunther was pulled by AGA - they responded to my e-mail and let me know. But, they're not taking Billy - they hope someone else will step up for him. I sent him to quite a few more Georgia Rescues, but haven't received any responses.

I saw that Brother was rescued - that's great - he's beautiful!

Brother's brother (boy that sounds silly!) was not listed on athenspets.net, as originally he was not available for adoption. So - the only status listed is for Brother. I'm hoping that both were rescued, but don't know for sure.

I'll keep trying for Billy - maybe I'll send him to some of the rescues listed on athenspets.net - although I'd think they would know about him.
