Buster

Quiet type!

Luckily these two were found by a very kind couple who brought both pups into their home and will foster them until their forever families are found.  Buster is approximately 4-6 months old, brown & white with black spots on his skin. He is thought to be a Beagle & Dalmatian mix. Buster is quiet & very sweet, who loves to loves to cuddle. In fact, he is content laying on you all day! He does great with dogs and cats. Buster has had his first round of puppy shots, is crate trained and is working on potty training. He will be utd on vaccinations, neutered, & microchipped prior to adoption.

Cappy

Dapper Dude!

Meet Cappy, a 1-2 yr old, small Beagle/Daschund mix that weighs in at 25lbs. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Despite having been neglected, Cappy is a confident boy. He loves to cuddle with his foster family and plays and plays with his foster brother, Beau. Cappy has shown no aggression towards cats.  He does need to be fed separate - unfortunately, this sweet boy has known hunger in his short life. Cappy can be rambunctious and may not be suitable around small children. Cappy is a sweet little guy but can be a little head strong but once he learns rules and boundaries, he’s good to go. He is crate trained, house trained, and walks well on a leash. He would do fine in a home with other dogs or by himself.

Cole


Mellow Man

Cole acts and appears to be a pure-bred Treeing Walker Coonhound. He has been an absolute joy to have around the house with his loving and laid back nature. He gets along great with other dogs and family members. He has not been tested off leash with cats, but he knows when the cat has been nearby and looks for him. Be advised he has been trained to hunt and will become very intense when he gets on a scent and will want to follow it. For this reason, Cole, will be best suited for a family with a large backyard and a tall fence and does not plan to leave Cole unattended for long periods of time. Cole would be fine being the only dog in a family as he loves attention and the comforts of being indoors. He also loves to hang out and play with his foster pack. Cole is approximately 3 years old, altered, crate trained, micro-chipped, approximately 70 lbs. and up to date on all shots. For information on our adoption process, check out our FAQ page or adoption page to fill out an application. Don’t forget to mention Cole!

Emma Lou

Love bug!

Meet Emma Lou! She is one of eight healthy and happy puppies ready to find their furever family. She is very affectionate and loves giving her humans kisses! Emma Lou is a 15-week-old Lab mix (as of July 25th) who has had her first two rounds of puppy shots. She will be microchipped, spayed, and receive her last puppy shots prior to adoption. She currently weights between 12-15lbs and should be a medium size dog. Applications can be submitted online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org.

Jada

Little Miss

Jada is a fun loving little 1 year old Staffie pup approximately 31 lbs and we believe she may max out to 35-40 lbs. She is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She loves to play with her ball and is learning when she returns it, it will be thrown again for her to catch! Her foster mom & dad are working on skills & manners, such as walking on a leash and sitting, but it won’t be too long before she is a dignified young lady. Jada is crate trained and working on her potty skills. Her foster home has four dogs and lots of cats and for fun she occasionally takes the cats for a short run. She doesn’t like her kitties to be lazy!  We think Jada will excel with a family that has an active lifestyle since she is a very high-energy dog. A large fenced yard is suggested since there will be lots of daily fetching and playing. Jada would make a great companion for someone who likes to walk, hike, or run as she loves the freedom of being outside but also likes to hang inside with her humans watching a little tellie. Adoption applications can be submitted online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org Just mention you’re interested in Little Miss Jada! 

JEB


Full of love


Jeb is DRDR’s resident Chihuahua mix. He is a super sweet, playful 2-year-old who is heartworm negative, neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. Jeb weighs 13 lbs., is crate trained, and about 90% house trained. We think he may be mixed with Jack Russell but can never be 100% sure. He loves playing with toys especially toys almost as big as him and anything that squeaks! He loves cats and kids, but can be nervous around bigger dogs. He also enjoys cuddling on the sofa with his humans. As with many of our adoptable dogs, Jeb was dumped on a rural road near a farm and it took several days for little Jeb to trust people enough to be caught. Now that he is in a loving foster home, he can’t get enough attention. Applications can be submitted online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

Pippi

Surviver!

This little beauty is Pippi. Pippi is one tough little momma who cared for her six pups at a garbage dump in rural Georgia, then in an animal shelter, and finally at her foster family's home. She is a Mountain Feist, weights approx. 25 lbs, spayed, utd on shots, and is ready to find her forever family. Pippi loves to play with children, cats, and friendly dogs large and small. She has the sweetest temperament and is very loving. Pippi is crate trained and working on her house training. Unfortunately, Pippi’s story is similar to most of our adoptable doggies. She and her six puppies were dumped and left to fend for themselves. Animal Control found them at a garbage dump and DRDR was able to pull this gorgeous momma and puppies from a small rural Georgia Shelter in July before their time was up. If you would like to add Pippi to your family, please submit an adoption application online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org and mention Pippi!

This good dog loves all friendly dogs and is just looking to relax and enjoy the day.  He loves to make friends and doesn't know a stranger. He is fully vetted, neutered, and gentle with kid​s.  



Roscoe

Just wants to
have fun 

​​

Roscoe is a happy, 10-month-old terrier mix who is looking for a family to call his own! He is on the small side weighing in at 30lbs. He loves to play with others dogs, gets along well with cats, and loves people- big and small! His adorable, radar-like ears will let you know when you've got his attention! He is working on his crate & house training. He’s well on his way but has a few accidents here and there, but we have no doubt he’ll master these skills soon! Roscoe came to Dirt Road Doggies Rescue when his owner could no longer care for him and it's our goal to find him his forever home!
​​

Rosie

Athletic
&
High Energy

​​

Rosie was dumped on the side of a rural road. She was terrified and didn't leave the area for days, but luckily, she had a guardian angel looking out for her. This angel found Rosie and sponsored her vetting costs which allowed DRDR to bring her in and get this gorgeous girl healthy! When Rosie came into DRDR’s care, she was malnourished, her coat was dull with hair falling out and had horrible skin. At that time, we had no idea how beautiful she would ultimately be. Her light brindle coat is very unique. Rosie loves attention and is crazy for her Kong. She will play fetch for hours if you let her! No doubt this girl had a rough life but we know her luck will change once the perfect forever family finds her. Rosie is approximately 3 years old, has been spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative. Rosie plays with her foster family’s male pit mix, but would need to be tested with other females; however the foster family has seen no aggression towards other dogs or cats. Rosie is a high-energy girl. For adoption information, please go to: http://www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org/adopt-me-adoption-application


Skip

Handsome Boy

Meet Skip! Skip is mostly white with gorgeous gray/black eyes. Each puppy is unique in their coloring but, Skip is just plain handsome! He loves to play with his brothers and sisters but not too rough. And of course, he loves to be cuddled. Momma Pippi and her 5-6-week-old puppies were pulled from a rural Georgia shelter mid-July as they were on the euthanization list. The shelter was beyond capacity and had no room for a momma dog with puppies. Animal control found Pippi and her pups at a garbage dump trying to survive on human trash. Fast forward six weeks and these cuties are healthy, happy, and ready to find their forever homes. These Mountain Feist mix pups have had puppy shots and will be altered and microchipped prior to adoption. We don’t know anything about the daddy, but are guessing Aussie or Heeler so expect the puppies to be medium sized dogs weighing approximately 30-40 lbs. www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

Sweetie

The name says it all!

This adorable puppy is Sweetie! She and her brother, Buster, were found on the side of a rural road in Commerce, GA. Luckily these two were found by a very kind couple who brought both pups into their home and will foster them until their forever families are found.  Sweetie is approximately 4-6 months old, white with black spots and one brown ear. She is thought to be a Beagle & Dalmatian mix. Sweetie is an energetic girl who loves to give kisses, enjoys belly rubs, and does great with dogs and cats. She has had her first round of puppy shots, is crate trained and is working on potty training. She will be up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, & microchipped prior to adoption. If this little girl has stolen your heart, please submit an application online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org adoption tab and don’t forget to mention you are interested in Sweetie!

Tank

Big Boy!

Meet Tank! He is one of eight healthy and happy puppies ready to find their furever home. Tank is the largest of the litter but is proving to be a gentle giant! Tank is a 14-week-old Lab mix (as of July 18th) who has had his first two rounds of puppy shots. He will be microchipped, neutered, and receive his last puppy shots prior to adoption. He currently weights between 12-15lbs and should be a medium size dog. Applications can be submitted online at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org. Please check out our FAQ page on our website for questions on adopting from DRDR.

Teddy

Wingman

Meet Teddy! Teddy is Cookie’s wingman. If Cookie is first, Teddy is second. He is one of the smaller puppies in the litter but that doesn’t slow down his adventurous nature.  Like all of Pippi’s puppies, Teddy loves to held and cuddled. Momma Pippi and her 5-6-week-old puppies were pulled from a rural Georgia shelter mid-July as they were on the euthanization list. The shelter was beyond capacity and had no room for a momma dog with puppies. Animal control found Pippi and her pups at a garbage dump trying to survive on human trash. Fast forward six weeks and these cuties are healthy, happy, and ready to find their forever homes. These Mountain Feist mix pups have had puppy shots and will be altered and microchipped prior to adoption. We don’t know anything about the daddy, but are guessing Aussie or Heeler so expect the puppies to be medium sized dogs weighing approximately 30-40 lbs. www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

Willie

Playful & loving

​​

Willie and brother Waylon were surrendered to a rural Georgia animal shelter by their owner. DRDR was contacted and thankfully had some extra space so pulled them just before they were to be euthanized. These poor hound pups are only about a year old and have really had no training and not shown much love. They were a little shy at first but are quickly coming out of their shells and appreciating attention. In a very short time, these two have mastered crate training and leash walking so the foster family has moved on to teaching simple commands, house training, and confidence building. The boys have been neutered, are UTD on vaccinations, and weigh approximately 40 lbs.  Willie is the quiet one whereas Waylon wants you to know he is present. The foster family is seeing less anxiety as they get more comfortable with the routine of the pack – dogs and humans! We think they will do well in a home with other dogs but can also be an only pet. They have not been cat tested, but do not seem to have a prey drive.  These two cuties deserve a second chance and all that life has to offer. If you think one or both would make a great addition to your family, check out our FAQ page at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org for adoption info. You can submit an application online.

Lolli

Needs a 2nd chance


Curtesy Post: This beauty is Lolli, a 5-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound, who is in need of a new home. Lolli is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and HW-. Sadly, she is living outside in a pen due to a change in housing – the new landlord doesn’t allow pets to live inside. Lolli doesn't particularly like the pen so she keeps escaping which is very worrisome for her elderly owners. With heavy hearts, Lolli's owners have decided it’s best to find a loving family who can give her all the hugs and cuddles she deserves. Lolli loves people but has not been tested with small children or cats. She gets along with non-aggressive dogs. If interested in adopting or fostering this girl, please submit an application on www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org or check out our adoption/FAQ/Foster page for questions.

This first photo was taken of Jack about a month after he entered the protective arms of DRDR.  He was still very much underweight and slowly recovering from a severe flea infestation.  You can see the look of relief in his eyes, so grateful not to be hungry anymore.  The second photo was taken just two months later.  Jack so handsome and filled out.  He has come a long way in such a short amount of time.
