Why choose me?

Update from Cedar’s temporary foster 7/22: Cedar’s heartworm treatment recovery period is officially over. She is now available to go to her forever home 😀 some things I am learning about this sweet girl:
✅ Super friendly with guests in my house
✅ loves her chewy treats and bones
✅ rides well in the car
✅ loves long walks
✅ loves to cuddle on the bed
✅ knows sit and down
✅ peanut butter in a Kong is a favorite treat
✅ loves belly rubs
She has been an absolute joy to have around and is patiently waiting to find her new family. Could it be yours?

Update 6/20 & 6/21: Cedar has been treated for heartworms (received immiticide shots). She needs to be on crate rest for the next month–please send this wonderful girl good thoughts as she recovers!

Update 5/26: Meet Cedar. She is an older little gal that loves everyone she meets. She’s been great with kids and adults at the shelter and she is a laid back gal who is just looking for love and her forever home. She’s sweet & petite with ears that make her stand out in a crowd. She walks PERFECTLY on a leash, just check out her video below if you don’t believe me! She likes to stay close, and listens when called. She is very treat motivated as well and melts like buttah in your lap and loves giving kisses. What’s not to love about Miss Cedar!?

Cedar’s Doggie-Day-Out Update 5/25: Cedar and I had our first afternoon out together last week. We met people at Lowes, Chick-fil-a, the UPS store and Publix. Car-ride, walkies, pets and nuggets! Woo Hoo!

Update from Cedar’s advocate 4/20: LOOK AT THIS FACE!
As part of volunteering at the Athens Clarke County Animal Control, I have the opportunity to advocate for pets needing homes. I have chosen Cedar, a 6 year old spayed female. The day I met her, she found a way to sit on my lap at the picnic bench, and only left to greet other visitors who drove to the shelter (can’t miss an opportunity, right?). She was such a love that I might just have been heard singing “You’ve Got a Friend” to her before I took her back to her kennel. Cedar has heartworms, which means she will need treatment and confinement during that time, but my dog Greta has been through this and is now fine.

Update 4/17: Unfortunately, Cedar has tested positive for heartworms. To learn about heartworms, including how to treat them, please go to the American Heartworm Society‘s webpage. For information about the cost of treatment, please speak with your veterinarian. While Athenspets helps with the cost of treatment when we can, an adopter needs to be prepared to pay for at least some of the cost and for enforcing the exercise restrictions it entails.

Cedar is such a sweet, friendly girl! When she entered the interaction pen, she had a quick case of the zoomies, but then she was all about spending time with me. She’s an obedient dog who comes when called, sits for treats, and is beginning to get lay. Cedar is microchipped and was adopted from ACCAC two years ago. I remember her as being a happy, good-natured dog, and that still rings true now. I hope she’s reunited with her family, but if that doesn’t happen, she’d be a wonderful addition to almost any family looking for a sweet, loving dog!
