Dogs 50 lbs and Over (Big dogs need love too!)

Less then 1% of the applications we get are for dogs over 50 lbs. Everyone wants a smaller dog or a puppy. Forgotten Paws specialized in the shy or socially deprived dog so many, not all, of our dogs are in need of special, patient homes. We also specialize in saving the black dog!

Gracie is very loving and adores her humans. She loves car rides and playing fetch. She even brings it back and drops it. LOL She is pretty high energy and will need someone to walk her or play with her daily. She walks well on leash but does pull a little when exicted. She is a good girl and does not beg when we eat but will lay down on the floor and just hope you drop something. She does get on the furniture and loves to lay on the couch.

At night, Gracie loves to cuddle and snuggle while watching TV. She will in your lap all day and night if you let her. She is good at reading the situation and knows when its play time or snuggle time. She is really a great dog!

Gracie would do best as an only dog or with a more equally dominate and playful boy. She was placed in a home with a very submissive dog and she basically tried to make him move out b/c she wanted all the attention and he was too shy so she bullied him. The couple was heartbroken b/c they loved her dearly but their first dog came first of course. With other dogs like him, she is food and toy dominate. We see NONE of that with humans. This is also why we don't want her in a home with toddlers that she might view as submissive dogs.

Walnut is always very happy about life and playfulwith the otherdogs. He gets along great wth all the dogs at the kennel house and is very submissive when playing. He listens well, sits, comes, goes in his crate on command and outside to potty. He loves toys too. He will chase a ball but to be honest, I am not sure if he is chasing the ball or the others dogs running for the ball. LOL He is good... on leash, loves to go for walks and is great at the dog park. Walnut has never met a stranger and loves everyone instantly.

We have a dog at the kennel house who doesn't care for many other dogs but he loves Walnut. That should tell you about his aura. He is a very special boy.

Walnut is still pretty exuberant it is b/c he has never had a family. He was a skinny,malnourished stray living on the streets of Atlanta when we got him. He has been at the kennel house now for 2 years. He has a blast playing all day but there isn't alot of daily structure. :) He still checks out the countertops and he still jumps happily when I come home. All things that are easily fixed once he doens't have a ton of dogs to feed off of. He desperately wants to please. He is great with kids but might knock little ones down with is happy butt.

Cody is a sweet, happy boy but shy of new people. He loves his foster mom and has grown up in the kennel house so that is all he has known. He is pretty laid back and easy going so it would only take him a short time to settle into a new home. He and his brother, Zack, are very bonded but Zack is more shy. We have been trying to keep them together b/c they play only with each other and are never more then 6 feet apart when running around the yard. They do require a fenced yard, no cats, no kids under teenagers.

We will require that we do 3-4 home visits/playdates before actually leaving them at your home. I know that sounds insane but we have tried it the other way and they never do well and always come back b/c they are too scared.

Spot used to be the most happy go lucky puppy on earth but he never got adopted and has never once had an application. He has grown up in the kennel house with so many other dogs. He is not one of the pushy ones so he doesn't get the love and attention he deserves so desperately. As a pup, all the other ones would be sleeping and he would be playing and crawling all over my lap. He would smile and enjoy getting my sole attention.

Now Spot doesn't come to me b/c when he does all the other dogs rush up as well which sends him trotting back to his crate. While he loves his brother and would truely enjoy the companionship of one or two other dogs, the kennel house is just overwhelming to him (and Butler). Sadly I have watched so many babies not get adopted and then turn shy and skittish over time. :( My heart breaks for them all.

Spot listens so well. He goes in his crate when told, goes outside when told, and sits for treats. He still runs and bounces like a pup around the yard whenhe gets the urge and loves to chase toys. Bringing them back is something he has never mastered. He does not jump on his person and sits for love. We have a "four feet on the ground" rule around here and he learned it quickly. Due to his tendnecy to just hang out in his crate, Spot is a little overwieght.

Spots mother is a 35 lb beagle shepherd mix with a darling personality. Her name is Krissy and she is listed on the Medium Dog Page. She was living in the woods near and industrial park when we set a humane trap and got her before she delivered these beautiful pups.

Butler is a wonderfully sweet, loving, happy man who loves to play with toys and spends his day hanging out with his mom and his brother at our kennel house. Butler is so handsome that everyone wanted him as a puppy. We chose a home and unfortunately, it was too overwhelming for him. When they would go for walks, everyone wanted to pet the pretty pup and he got very scared with people constantly reaching for him and so he started to growl at people. He was soon returned. Since that time we have worked with him but he still doesn't seem interested in visiting with strangers that come to volutneer. He likes his comfort zone. He just avoids them. He runs around and plays but won't go to any of the volunteers. It will take him a short time to adjust to a new home. He does get nervous when strangers try to pet him or he thinks he is in trouble, or I just want to put flea meds on him (lol) and he will submissively pee. I think once he has a quiet home of his own he will trust his person and settle in more with a less chaotic life.

Butler's mother is a 32 lb beagle shepherd mix with a darling personality. Her name is Krissy and she is listed on the Medium Dog Page. She was living in the woods near and industrial park when we set a humane trap and got her before she delivered these beautiful pups. His brother is Spot listed above

Barney is a goofball but so sweet and loving. He literally spends his summer days with his nose to the ground chasing bugs real or sometimes it seems imaginary. It is his favorite passtime. LOL You can tell he has been hit b/c if you move too fast towards him, he hits the ground and cowards. Otherwise he is awesome. He loves to play with the other dogs, is submissive to them all. He is great with all sizes of dogs and kids. He may be a little too happy for toddlers right now though b/c he might knock them down. He goes outside to potty and I do not crate him any longer b/c he breaks out. He needs to learn to walk on leash. Barney sleeps on a dog bed near right outside my bedroom door at night. He would do best with a dog door so he an go in and out and play. Barney is a sneaky food theif and will steal food off the kitchen countertop if he has the chance. We are still working on this. :)

History: I saw Barney standing on a hillside looking desperately at the Shell Station at the corner of I-75 and Highway 92. I don't know if that is where he was lost or if someone was feeding him there. Employee's inside said he had been there a couple of weeks. I set a humane trap for him and got him the first night. No one claimed him.

Howard has had a sad life. Howard spent the first year or more of his life on a chain. He had very little human interaction. When we found him, we were trying to catch some puppies that had been dumped behind his house. The puppy was curled up with Howard sleeping. Howard was so upset when we took his friend. It took a few weeks but we eventually talked the owner into releasing Howard to us. Howard did great in the kennel house playing for the first month. He gained 10 lbs, grew his missing hair back and played his heart out. But then he suddenly decided he didn't like certain dogs and that is when Howard started his life in a pen outback :(

Howard has matured alot since we got him several years ago. Howard used to love to play but now it is in short spurts. He has a male pit friend who hangs out with him all day in his pen. We have finally graduated to being able to let Howard run free to the house each night to get into his crate. Each morning we do the same. he runs free to the water bowl then outside to his pen. He bounces through about 6 dogs trying ot get him to play but he just wants to get to his place and go potty. :)

He spends all day hanging out with his buddy, watching squirrels and the other dogs. At night he gets to come inside after we have put all the dogs away and spend some one on one human time. He loves to be petted and give kisses. He loves to go for walks. He is so smart and easy I just can't believe no one has given him a chance. It is b/c we just don't know what dog he will like and which one he won't.

If you have no other dogs he would be perfect. If you want two dogs you can adopt him and his best friend Walnut! If you already have a dog I would need to meet the dog first, then we could introduce the dogs if I feel the personalities would be good together. I have known Howard for 3 years now so I know him well.

Baker is a wonderful boy with a loving spirit and a zest for life. He is a little shy of strangers and will stand behind me on walks when strangers approach. I just tell them not to reach for him b/c we are socializing him and we don't want him to think everyone is going to try and pet him. The odd thing is that at adoption events he loves everyone. Baker has some playful energy and needs a home with a tall fenced yard or someone who loves to go for walks. He is strong on leash though and although he walks well most of the time, if he see's a cat or squirrel, he will try to take off so you have to be an alert walker and strong yourself. We keep him on a harness that hooks on his chest so he can't get the power behind his pull. He listens immediately and is learning to be nonreactive.

At home, he lays on his dogs bed and loves toys and bones. He sleeps next to my bed on a bed of his own and never has an accident. He is very intelligent. I don't know why Baker is still with us. He is such a good boy. .

Be a Virtual Foster. Click here to Sponsor Steve!

Steve is a very special and very sweet boy. He started with nothing in his life and now enjoys lounging on the bed, chasing balls, hanging with the other dogs and pretending to be a chihuahua when he wants to get in your lap. He honestly has no idea that his head weighs 25 lbs. Steve is a love bug and smart but goofy. He walks goofy, he runs goofy, and he snaps his teeth together loudly when he gets excited. Most people are fearful of this action but to Steve, he is just so excited he can't help himself and once you see it you will understand that it isn't threatening at all. And you should see this boy run andbounce. He is very chill 99.9% of the time so when he does chase the dogs playing fetch, it just brings a smile to my face. The only other timeyou see Steve get overly-excited is when new people come to visit or you just get home. He still jumps and he won't learn. I do think that b/c of Steve's bad start, he may have some brain damage. Sometimes the look on his face is one of confusion or sadness and you makes you wonder.

As Steve has gotten older, I can tell he craves having someone who will be special to him. I love him so much but being in the kennel house is taking its toll. He cries when I put him in his crate b/c he wants to be with me on a dog bed. He looks so sad and moves like a snail when I call him to his crate at night. I love him but I want him to be spoiled. He deserves it so much. He is healthy now and needs to be happy.

February of 2013, Steve was standing very confused and terrified in the HOV lane of I-75 just north of the Airport. There was a lul in traffic allowing me to lure him across the 5 lanes of zooming traffic. With the help of another car, we blocked him and as I approached, he pee 'd submissively. I scooped him up and put him in my car. He is very sweet, listens well, knows how to sit. He is good with my other dogs and all people. He takes treats very gently and he seems to love kids.

At the vet he was 20 lbs underweight, had scars on him from a rough life, was unneutered and was Heartworm Positive. Steve also had horrible Pneumonia from his life in the cold and the rain. He is very healthy and happy now since being treated for all his ailments.

Notes: Meet BUNNY (or as I call her, Funny Bunny Foo Foo). Bunny came to us when she was only 6 months old. She was a baby and we rescued her and her brother from a nasty kill shelter in northern Georgia.

Bunny is now, 3 years old, 56 lbs and has never found her forever home. She is so happy go lucky and friendly it is simply insane to me that no one has given this girl a chance. Her mother was a Pointer and we were told dad was a boxer/bulldog. Both dumped at the shelter with the pups.

Bunny is full of love. Bunny loves everyone she meets. She loves toys and plays fetch. She gets along well with all the dogs at the kennel house, no matter what size or sex. Unfortunately, we currently have a group of dogs who don't like her for some reason. So Bunny has been spending her days in her crate, bored. She goes outside to potty and we play fetch everyday but most of the time she sleeps alone up in her crate. She can't come down and play in the general population b/c of these dogs. I swear it feels like high school some days!

She is housebroken, crate trained and just a big cuddle muffin. She does have alot of pend up happy energy. She bounces and wiggles tons when you giv eher love and attention but a good toy or bone and she settles right down. All she wants is to be loved and she begs everyone single person who will love on her at adoptions to take her home.

Bunny is good with kids but might accidentally knock over small ones with her wiggle butt. She is very curious about cats but if in a home with cats that are used to dogs, she would do just fine. She is scared of the neighbors cat (most animals are! LOL)

Lola is sponsored monthly by David W. Thank you!

 

Lola has been here for 7 years! Another dog and someone home alot would be the ideal retirement home for this wonderfully sweet girl.

She is a smart, happy go lucky, playful girl. She was 3 years old when her horrible owner dumped her at the shelter as punbishment to her children for not behaving. I witnessed it. Luckily I was there that day picking up another dog and was able to take Lola and her beagle buddy home with me b/c she shelter was full and they were to be put directly to sleep.

Lola loves her person and doesn't go far when out and about. She used to love the lake and she still enjoys short hikes but she can no longer be seen swimming or chasing deer. She has mellowed out with age and just enjoys small jaunts. She spends most of her time laying on her bed in her crate (door open). She likes the security of her crate and she can chew on her toys or eat her food in peace away from my other dogs too. I call her my little hoarder b/c she will take every toys she can find and hide it in her crate under her blanket. It is like a treasure chest for the dogs when you pull her blanket out. LOL When I sit down, she comes up and puts her head in my lap and looks at me with her golden eyes. You can certainly see her soul through those eyes. She listens well off leash as long as you keep your eye on her and she is not with a dog that will run off with her. If another dog will go, they are gone! Lola would make a great family pet or a companion for someone who just wants to spoil her.

Lola needs a very secure fenced yard or leash walking. She requires another dog b/c when left alone she has separation anxiety. She went to two homes over the years for short times. The first crated her alone all day and they would come home and the plastic crate would be across the room upside down, with Lola still inside. The second home didn't understand that Lolas need was not for a playmate but not to be alone. They kept separating the dogs when they would leave so Lola tore up the carpet to get out of the room to get to the other dog. Once together she was fine.

What an angel! Chris is almost the perfect dog, unless you hate when the dog gets in your clean laundry pile to sleep before you have a chance to fold it. Then maybe he isnt perfect for you. LOL

Chris is a another one of our goofballs. He is very sweet, loves everyone he meets and makes me laugh everyday when he flip is his head around and his ears go flying or he rubs his butt up against my pants leg to get my attention. LOL He loves other dogs and loves to play but his person is the most important thing to him. He goes in his crate on command and he loves to go for walks. He pulls a little on leash when he sees something fun to chase or when I am not getting to the pet store door fast enough. Chris is mostly mellow. He hangs around the house all day doing nothing but waiting. He is waiting for his walk. He is waiting for his dog park visits. He waiting to get in the car and go on an adventure. While Chris isn't hyper all the time, he does need a person who enjoys being outside but can also appreciate relaxation time. Oh and he loves to get in the laundry. LOL

History: A family we were aware of (see Jade above), got Chris after they dumped Jade. He was a small pup. When he was about 4-5 months old they threw him out of the house. He wandered the neighborhood alone and came back home to lay on the porch and eat. The neighbors fed him mostly and gave him love and attention. They told neighbors that they had driven him away 4 times but he always found his way back home. OMG!!!! They were doing it again as they did with Jade! They moved shortly after this and we took Chris into our program. He has been so happy here to have a home, love and friends. He is a very loving, loyal boy.

Panda is bouncy and playful. He loves butterflies and chasing chipmunks. He is a people dog and doesn't really care about the other dogs. He wants to be near is his foster mom more then anything. He is a good boy and listens well most of the time although recently we have been experiencing some selective hearing. Being in the kennel house, it seems to happen to the best of them on occassion. Too much distraction.

 

Panda will lay and chew on toys and bones all by himself. Although he is crated when no one is at the kennel house and sometimes crated at night, I think he would be fine left loose. I do occassionally let him sleep in my room on a dog bed and he stays there all night. He loves to go for walks and is pretty easy going after he settles in to the walk. At first he is bouncy and going in a million direction. Panda is still grasping our rule of all four paws on the ground for pets. He likes to stand up like a person for his attention. He also likes to check out the countertops but we are also working on this. He knows better but he has a defiant streak

Panda needs a home with a fenced yard or someone willing to work on his walking skills to burn off a little energy. He loves to gallop around my yard when I let him out and makes sure the pereimeter is secure from squirrels. I don't know how he would do at a dog park b/c he does have a small dominate streak with other male dogs. He is great with all but 3 of the ones here at the kennel house. No fights but he stands over them when they stand over him. It goes back and forth.

Due to his history of abuse I prefer no kids under 12 for Panda.

Panda went to a home with cats. At first he was terrified of them. After about 4 days he decided it would be fun to chase them. He was not being aggressive just taunting so I know he could be trained with consistency.

History: Panda came out of Clayton County Animal Control. He had been left behind in a house when his owners moved and he and his brother abandoned. He was very scared at the shelter and started growling at everyone so they slatted him to be killed. Another rescue pulled his pretty blonde brother and left him to die. One of our volunteers saw his photos and wanted to save him. I put a hold on him and went to get him. The officers at Animal Control refused to get him out of the cage b/c he was being so mean. They wouldn't even go near him. I fed him a few treats, talked to him, then opened the gate and slipped leash on him. Suddenly he was bouncing around, being happy and ready to get his freedom ride. He was just completely terrified and it almost cost him his life. :( I have never seen one growl out of him at all since that day but have noticed his fear of brooms and fast movements.

SweetPea is as sweet as her name with everyone she meets. She loves everyone, plays well with dogs and is good with kids. She loves to chase balls and actually brings them back which is a novelty at the kennel house. LOL She also loves to just hang out and do nothing. She will lay on her dog bed and chew up a tennis bacll for hours. On leash she walks well but is reactive to other dogs. We are working on corrective training bc no like to see a pit bull acting aggressively. For this reason, she needs a person with dog experience or a fenced yard.

Don't let her flaws make you turn a blind eye to her. I know she is a black pit bull but she is a love bug and deserves a great life.

FOSTER or FOREVER HOME NEEDED BEFORE IT GETS HOT!

Tuddy is a gentle, laid back, easy going boy. He just hangs out all day doing nothing but supervising the younger more exuberant pups. I know he would love to have a nice quiet place of his own with his own person who can make him feel special. He loves to spend his days outside in teh garage with the fenced front yard but when the weather gets hot he pants constantly even though he lays in front of a fan and we air conditioned the garage for him last year. We shaved Tuddy in June and it took until ths month for his beautiful coat to comeback and it didn't seem to help him at all.

Tuddy spends his days sleeping. He will wander down to the water bowl and out into the yard to check things out and occassinaly remind the neighbors that he is hear but it is a soft old man bark a couple of times so no one seems bothered. He is the sweetest boy on earth and come to me for love and attention whenever I go outside. At night, Tuddy comes into the kennel house to eat and sleep. He would prefer to stay in the garage where there is less dogs but when it is cold that isn't allowed.

History: Tuddy spent the first 6 years of his life tied to a deck with very little interaction and very few walks. His owner finally gave him to a neighbor. They brought him on a visit to a friend in Atlanta and during that stay, Tuddy ran away. Being college students, they basically just shrugged it off and went back to Savannah leaving Tuddy behind. grrrr...... That night he returned to the house where they had been staying but they told their friends to take Tuddy to the shelter. This is when we stepped in and the night before Thanksgiving Tuddy came to Forgotten Paws.

Tuddy had bad heartworms when we got in him in November of 2015. He has been treated but he has heart and lung damage which causes him to cough or wheeze alot. It has been a year since his treatment and he is doing great but will most likely never not cough. He needs a person who can tune that cough out but also be aware enough to know when it gets worse. Basically the vets say he has cronic broncitis but this makes him more suseptible to kennel cough from other dogs. For example, this past summer he developed kennel cough. He had not been anywhere but we had taken dogs to and from the vets and adoption events. Although no other dogs showed any symptoms, Tuddy contracted it from someone who carried it into the house but fought it off without showing signs. Tuddy, is also not neutered so would need to be kept away from unspayed females and unaltered males that may take attitude with his manhood. Due to his heart and lung issues, Tuddy CANNOT be sedated for neuter.

Due to his medical history, Forgotten Paws wants to stay involved with Tuddy and offer medical assistance for his future needs when we can. Please consider taking this wonderful boy into your home.
