53345 – Count
Why choose me?
Update from Count’s foster 3/27: Count is a real sweetheart. He loves curling up next to you on the couch or going on long walks around the neighborhood. He can be shy at first, but just takes time to warm up to new folks. Out on walks he’s generally well behaved and very friendly, wanting to meet every neighbor and new dog we pass by. I don’t know how he is around cats or kids, but he’s definitely friendly around other dogs. He does seem to have some quirks when it comes to doors and doorways, but hot dogs make for excellent motivation. He’s very good in the house and doesn’t get into anything he shouldn’t or leave a mess anywhere, but stairs and loud noises tend to put him on edge. Count definitely needs a home with someone who can give him the love and attention he needs, and the patience to help him get over his quirks.
Update 3/19: Count was adopted but returned. Fortunately, he’s in a foster home and happily settling in! Call the shelter at 706-613-3540 to arrange to meet this happy pup!
Update 3/4: Count is neutered and available to be fostered! To foster Count, or another shelter animal, please apply here.
Update 2/28: Count loves people and could happily spend his day cuddling. He doesn’t do well in his kennel, however, so to give him a break, he’s been hanging out in one of the shelter offices where he’s done extremely well. A staff member told me that she can leave him alone when she has to attend to other things, and he doesn’t mess with anything. He also hasn’t had any accidents. He just likes being with a friend and lounging on his comfy dog bed. Count is a good boy who longs to be someone’s best friend!
Update 1/13: COUNT❤ is the absolute SWEEEETEST baby! When you go by his run he softly cries hoping you’ll notice how beautiful he is even though he’s not perfect…he’s got some skin issues that have been neglected by whoever had him for a very long time. I gave him a medicated bath today and you could just tell he felt so much better..Look at those huge smiles😁😁. I don’t think he’s had that kind of attention in a very long time if ever😭he was scared to death of the bathtub, but was still a good and sweet boy to me❤he is a total love bug and deserves so much more love than what he’s previously had😞😞he is going to the vet soon so we will know what is actually going on with his coat and get him treated. He needs a rescue to step up! He is dog friendly and his run was clean so I’m assuming he’s house trained. He’s 5 years old and very chill. Loves people and treats and neck scratches❤❤❤
If you are looking for a couch potato, Count is your guy! This loving, sweet boy just wants to be around people and will try hard to sit in your lap. He’s a handsome boy just looking for all the love he can find. He didn’t leave my side for a minute so I had to have a little help with his initial pictures. Spend some time with Count and you will see what a special boy he is.
