Rogue, Drax, Loki, Stark, Kali, Jäger, and Koda the #GreatPyrenees, #SaintBernard mix, #DutchShepherd, #GermanShepherd, #RhodesianRidgeback mix, #Husky mix, and #Pitbull mix "I'm just your average Veterinary Technician with an above average fur family out to save the doggo world! Adopt don’t shop." @breekettles
Bruno the Pomeranian "Bruno has a secret: he's not nearly as tough as he seems. He will bark at anyone and everyone to look mighty, but instantly attacks you with kisses once he gets that first pat. What can I say, he's a sucker for love (and car rides and ice cream)." @superrmelissa
Azul the American Pitbull Terrier "Azul is an intelligent dog he answer to English and Spanish commands! Azul enjoys running, rolling around in the grass, and likes to challenge himself to see how quickly he can tear up a chew toy. BEWARE: Will attack you with kisses ;)" @azulelpitbull
Labrador Retrievers, Poodles, and Golden Retrievers "Sometimes it's easy to forget because they're so darn cute, but our future guide dog puppies have a huge job ahead of them. It's our responsibility as puppy raisers to give them a solid foundation to build on as they get older and eventually go into formal training, and UGA really is one of the best places to do that. Our puppies learn how to settle for long periods of time, ride public transportation, and experience all kinds of sights and sounds that will prepare them to be great guide dogs!
We're so thankful that the UGA and Athens communities have embraced our program in such a big way. We absolutely LOVE how much y'all love our puppies! Since most of them will be matched with a partner who is visually impaired, one of the most important things we can teach our puppies is how to ignore distractions. Here's where we need your help: please make sure to ask puppy raisers before talking to, making noises at, taking pictures of, or petting any of our puppies. This gives the raiser a chance to make sure the puppy is calm before you love on them, and it creates a fun and positive experience for the puppy!" @dawgs_raising_dogs @guidedogfoundation
There's a patch of puppies at @athenshumanesociety having a very Happy Howl-o-ween! Although there are lots of impressive tricks and tasty treats to go around, the biggest treat of all would be if they could found their forever homes. Visit the Athens Humane Society to #adopt your new, cuddly best friend. Have a Happy Halloween!
Milly the Pitbull "Milly is 5 months old and weighs in at 40 pounds!!!! She has captured the heart of every UGA student she’s come across, and has been impressing dog owners everywhere with her behavior! Milly can sit, go to her bed, shake, lay down, stand up, jump up, and more!!! She also loves playing with the other puppies at the DogsOfUGA meetups every month. Milly is the best dog a guy could ask for :’)" @yung_milly_rocks
