Benji

Daddy's boy!

Meet Benji! We think he’s a the Schnoodle: Schnauzer/Poodle mix who is approximately 4 years old and is 21lbs of super cuteness!! Benji has a familiar story – yes, dumped on a dirt road and terrified. He was running on the road and was almost hit by a car. Luckily, the driver saw him and stopped, but Benji was able to wedge himself underneath the front axle and wasn’t budging.  Husbands of DRDR co-founders come in handy in these types of situations as they don’t mind sliding underneath a car on the rough pavement and convincing a dog that life will be much better if he only comes out!! Benji is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and in a loving foster home. He has not been tested with children or cats and seems to be partial to men. He unfortunately is heartworm positive and won’t be available for adoption until the end of June. If you are interested in adopting Benji, please fill out an application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org adopt me page and scroll to the bottom.
 

Benjamin

We’d like to welcome Milo & Benjamin to the DRDR pack! Unfortunately, these two handsome fellas find themselves in need of new homes as their mom & dad are being deployed and cannot take them. Leaving their pups behind is breaking their hearts as you can imagine. Our wish is for them to go to the same home but realize it might not be possible, but if you have been looking to adopt two already trained pups, here is your chance to be their hero and provide a forever home.  


Benjamin is a Carolina Dog. 5-6 years old, weighs approximately 35lbs. Neutered and up to date on all shots. Loves antlers and soft beds.  House and crate trained. Gets along with dogs and cats. Very affectionate, eager to learn and please. Very affectionate, eager to learn and please. Learn new things quickly with firm, consistent commands. Knows sit, down, stay. To be considered to adopt Benjamin, submit an application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

Smart boy!

Candy

Loves belly rubs!

Candy is aptly named & her foster nom can’t say her name without ending it in “kisses” or “cane”. She’s such a little lover! When you first meet her, she’s a bit distrustful, especially of men. Whatever happened in her past must have been a nightmare that she can’t seem to forget. Once you gain her trust, she just wants to be near you, rolling over on her back for belly rubs, snuggling in as close as her muscular, compact little body can get to you. She looks into your eyes with such adoration & love…she just wants to please her family. She loves playing with other dogs, especially her brother, Brock! And, while she usually ignores the cats, she doesn’t seem to care for certain ones. So, she probably shouldn’t have cat siblings. She’s so good in her crate. She is quiet & when it’s time to come out, she stretches slowly & takes her time. When it’s time to go kennel, she will go in willingly with a treat or when her food bowl has been filled. Sometimes she requires kisses & a massage first..lol! She has a heart of gold & boundless love to give. She just needs the right person to come along and show her that we’re not all bad. A special person with a love that will hold her in their heart forever. You won’t be disappointed!
 


Candy was found abandoned during Hurricane Irma who is unfortunately heartworm positive. She will ready for adoption in early December once she finishes her treatment. Candy weighs around 40lbs, is spayed, utd on vaccinations, and is microchipped. She is a beautiful brindle color and we believe she may have some Rhodesian Ridgeback in her like her brother Brock. Adoption applications can be submitted at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org
 
 

Chewy


Happy boy!

Meet Chewy, a 4-year-old Shepard mix who unfortunately lived the majority of his life outside on a chain. He was surrendered to DRDR with his sister, Molly, when the bitter cold winter weather was bearing down on Georgia. Both dogs are heartworm positive, but have started their treatment, and should be available for adoption around mid-April. When you meet Chewy, you can’t help but love him. He seems to be smiling all the time and is overjoyed to be part of a family – even if it’s a temporary foster family. He can be scared at first but quickly warms up to everyone he meets. Chewy is up-to-date on vaccinations, nuetered, and microchipped. If you think Chewy will be a great addition to your family, please submit an application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

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!

Daniel


Curious pup!

Pebbles puppies were rescued with their mom from a hoarding case with 50+ dogs on one property. The owner did her best in caring for the dogs but was not financially able to spay/neuter and ultimately got overwhelmed. Needless to say, there were many pregnant momma dogs as well as moms with young puppies one of which is Pebbles & her three pups: Daniel, Rupert, and Emma.
 The puppies were born around the end of February, have had their first puppy shots, and have been wormed:
Hello. I'm Daniel. They say I'm named after the actor, Daniel Radcliff, because I kinda favor him. He must be a handsome guy!
I'm the big brother & I love to investigate new things. Mom is always telling me to go back to bed, but as soon as her back is turned, I take off again. It's fun to play those games with her & I kinda think she likes it, too.
I like it when the humans pick me up & snuggle with me. Their noses are chewy & they kiss me a lot. I can't wait to have a human to call my own! We'll have so many adventures!
If you would like to adopt Daniel, go to www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org adopt me page, scroll to the bottom for the online application.


Desi


Loves belly rubs!

This gorgeous girl is Desi. Desi is a 1 year old, 55lb Border Collie mixed with a large breed dog perhaps Great Pyrenees. Desi was adopted as a puppy, but sadly her owner could no longer care for her, so DRDR promised to find a forever home for Ms. Desi. She is currently fostered with three dogs, has been exposed to cats and does well with children. Desi is crate & house trained, fully vetted, spayed, microchipped and has a stunning black coat. Desi, being one, is still a puppy who has lots of energy for playing, running, hiking with an active family; however, she can pull when leash walking – she is a smart girl and we think she will master leash walking in no time with gentle and consistent training.  Desi can also be a bit of a couch potato who enjoys belly rubs, being goofy, and snuggling with her humans. If Desi has captured your heart as she has ours, you can submit an application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org  Adopt me page and scroll to the bottom.

Emma


Loves her humans!

Pebbles puppies were rescued with their mom from a hoarding case with 50+ dogs on one property. The owner did her best in caring for the dogs but was not financially able to spay/neuter and ultimately got overwhelmed. Needless to say, there were many pregnant momma dogs as well as moms with young puppies one of which is Pebbles & her three pups: Daniel, Rupert, and Emma.

Hi, I'm Emma. I was named after Emma Watson, an actress from Harry Potter. They say she's very pretty.


My favorite things to do are snuggle, nurse, sleep & play. When the humans hold me, I give them sweet kisses, then snuggle in as close as I can get. They're really warm & squishy, so they make great beds. Mom said that one day I will get my very own human. That day will be so lovely!
Emma, is doing great with her crate training.  She has had all appropriate puppy shots and will be spayed & microchipped. She gets along with children, dogs, and cats. As of June 1, she is approximately 15 weeks old and ready to find her forever family.


Fyn & Sam


Sweet boy!

UPDATE: Sam has been adopted. Fyn still needs a forever family. Could it be you????


Courtesy Post: Fyn and brother Samson are in need of a new family. Unfortunately, their family is being deployed and cannot take their boys. Fyn & Sam are bonded so we would love for them to go to the same family.

Houdini

Dance with me!

Hello there! I am a strong, 67 pound, fun-loving, 4 year old American Bulldog who loves car rides, leash walking and pleasing my human! I like to dance for my food and give really big kisses! I love couches and belly scratches and I even like bath time! I don't like to be left alone in the yard, by myself, because I miss my humans so much, I'll do anything to be with them. I'm really great at digging... by the way! I do enjoy being in my cozy crate when my humans have to leave. My foster mommy says I can't be around cats, rabbits, or farm animals. And, small dogs remind me of the aforementioned so I probably shouldn't have a little dog as a sibling.. especially of the bossy variety. But, I do like dogs that are more my size... especially if they love to wrestle like I do!
I really just want a family of my own so I can give hugs and kisses and make them happy! It makes me happy when my humans are happy! And, my smiles are contagious! You definitely need to meet me.. I'm a really cool guy!
I'm neutered,  up-to-date on my vaccinations & heartworm negative. I'm crate trained and even house trained!

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! 

Mason

Mr. Observant

​​
In March DRDR was notified of a potential hoarding case in NE Georgia. While hoarding may or may not be the correct term according to who you ask, it was unlike anything we had ever seen. There were 40+ dogs on property with most female dogs either with puppies or already pregnant. You see the individual thought she was saving strays, but in reality, created a larger problem because she could not afford to spay or neuter the dogs she brought home. Several pregnant mama dogs were taken in by various rescues in the Northeast & Florida as well as us. These four precious puppies (Stanley, Bella, Rainey, Mason) were born on the property and are currently in a foster home where they’re being loved on every day by a sweet family whose 5 year old little girl LOVES puppies! The puppies are approximately 16 weeks old and have had 3 rounds of puppy shots including Rabies. They still need to be spayed/neutered and microchipped which can be done at any time. They are working on crate and house training but will probably go much smother once they are in their forever home and getting more one on one attention. As best we can tell, they are mixed with hound, min pin, & maybe some Sharpei, but it’s really anyone’s guess. Their mom is approximately 40 pounds so we don’t expect them to get too big.

Mason, the grey & tan boy.
Mason is a bit smaller than the others, but he doesn't let that bother him. He tumbles & plays with his siblings as they practice their manners, like he's the one in charge. When you hold him, he snuggles up close & wags his tail as fast as it can go. He's a smart one & watches what's going on around him. He says he can't wait to find his very own human so he can be the best friend they ever knew.

Milo

Love Ice Cubes!

We’d like to welcome Milo & Benjamin to the DRDR pack! Unfortunately, these two handsome fellas find themselves in need of new homes as their mom & dad are being deployed and cannot take them. Leaving their pups behind is breaking their hearts as you can imagine. Our wish is for them to go to the same home but realize it might not be possible, but if you have been looking to adopt two already trained pups, here is your chance to be their hero and provide a forever home.
 
Milo was born 2/14/2012 (6 years old). Male - American Eskimo (Spitz). Weighs about 35lbs. He is neutered & up to date on all shots. House & crate trained.  Loves toys with squeakers and ice cubes. **Nips playfully at noses when really excited. Gets along with dogs and cats. Very affectionate, eager to learn and please. Learn new things quickly with firm, consistent commands. Knows sit, down, stay. To be considered to adopt Milo, submit an application at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org

Peanut Butter

Fancy!

Meet gorgeous Peanut Butter! She’s only been in the rescue a few weeks but her foster family has fallen in love with her! And when this happens, nicknames appear. Foxy Cleopatra being a favorite. Any Austin Power fans out there?!? Well back to the serious stuff…Foxy, I mean Peanut Butter, turned one on April 15th so still has the puppy energy we all love. She likes having toys scattered around to play with and LOVES running, playing, and exploring the back yard. We believe she needs a fenced backyard with an active dog brother or sister to help work off her energy. PB has lived with three other dogs in the past and was introduced to several dogs at her foster family’s home and really hit it off with a 5-year-old active male. She knows how to sit and shake but needs a little work on the leash…she thinks she is charge of the walk and will pull. Her foster family is working on this. She does well with confident cats – cats that have been around dogs but has a tendency to chase if the cat runs. She is fine with children. PB is a confident little lady with a bit of a stubborn streak – she wants to be the center of attention and who wouldn’t with those adorable ears and extra fluffy tail!!! PB is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed, crate & house trained.

Pebbles

Loves Cuddles!

Hi! I'm Pebbles. I'm a young mom (approx 2 years old), who loves my children dearly! But, once they leave the nest, I'm done with motherhood! Whew!
You see, I've never been the center of attention. I was born into a very busy place & although I was loved, they couldn't spend time with me alone. I have always craved human affection so much that I just want to crawl into your lap, give you kisses & flop over for a belly rub. 


I know I'm covered in scars. Even my tongue is damaged. But, my foster mom says I'm beautiful & loves me so much! I'm not interested in making any trouble. When another dog in the household approached me, I just flopped over on my side to let her know I mean no harm. I'm a survivor & just long to be cherished.


Do you have room in your heart for a girl with a rough & tough exterior, but a heart of gold on the inside? If you let me sleep with you, I promise to let you have half the bed…most nights.


Pebbles & her puppies were rescued from a hoarding case with 50+ dogs on one property. The owner did her best in caring for the dogs but was not financially able to spay/neuter and ultimately got overwhelmed. Needless to say, there were many pregnant momma dogs as well as moms with young puppies one of which is Pebbles & her three pups: Daniel, Rupert, and Emma.


Pebbles is ready to find her forever family...could it be you? She deserves the best life has to offer. 

Rainey

Smiley!

Rainey, the grey & tan girl.
Rainey is a loving girl. Her face just lights up when she's getting personalized attention. You can see her gentle little face seem to smile when you hold her. She's a very pretty puppy & will be a stunningly gorgeous dog when she grows up. She longs for cuddles & long walks with her favorite human. 

Rupert

Adorable little ginger!

Pebbles puppies were rescued with their mom from a hoarding case with 50+ dogs on one property. The owner did her best in caring for the dogs but was not financially able to spay/neuter and ultimately got overwhelmed. Needless to say, there were many pregnant momma dogs as well as moms with young puppies one of which is Pebbles & her three pups: Daniel, Rupert, and Emma.

 The puppies were born around the end of February, have had their first puppy shots, and have been wormed:

Hi! I'm Rupert, named after Rupert Grint, from Harry Potter. I have the most glorious ginger coat & hazel eyes. I know I look sad, but that's just my Sharpei heritage. I'm actually a pretty content little guy. I spend my days nursing, playing with my sister & brother & sleeping. I love when the humans hold me because they kiss me a lot & make the best snuggle buddies. I just can't wait for all the cuddles that I'm going to have one day! When my perfect human comes along!

Ralph

Social Gentleman

Ralph is a friendly 7 year old Chocolate Lab Mix, approximately 45 lbs,  who was dumped on a dirt road.  Ralph loves chickens and is not afraid to take down a snake to protect his feathered friends.  If you are looking for a buddy to hit the road with, Ralph is your man!  You don't have to ask him twice to get in the truck, just open the door and he knows what to do! 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.  



Rosie

Sweetest girl, 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

1. Stanley, the light chocolate boy. 
Stanley is the most polite puppy in the family. He waits his turn, so he's almost always last to eat. He's a gentle little boy with so much love to give. His eyes just speak to you with a quiet kindness. He's a beautiful puppy & will grow into quite a handsome dog. He looks forward to stretching out on a sofa, next to his favorite human & watching TV all evening.

Todd


Chunky Monkey 

​​

Introducing Todd!! He was saved from a hoarding case in rural Georgia with over 55 dogs on property: many pregnant or had small puppies as young as 5 weeks old. DRDR has brought in three litters of puppies and a pregnant momma dog. Others have gone to rescues far and wide, but there are dogs still needing to be rescued. Todd was living on an enclosed but not sealed wooden porch with their mom, Betty. Thankfully, he was out of the bitter cold but had no direct sunlight.  Todd had not been handled much so was a little shy at first. He has been in a loving foster home and has so much love to give! He was born in mid-January and is approximately 19 weeks old, has had two rounds of puppy shots, and is ready to find his forever home.  Mom, Betty, weighs approximately 30lbs and is a MinPin mix. We think the daddy is a gray dog hound/bully mix who weighs approximately 45lbs so Todd should be medium sized.

Before...

Tyson

Lucky to be alive

After...

Pupdate: Tyson has completed his heartworm treatment and is ready to find his forever family!! Tyson looks and feels terrific and can’t wait to have his own yard so he can be free to run and play.  Tyson LOVES to be with his humans and one of his favorite pastimes is sharing the sofa with his foster mom and dad while they watch TV. Tyson likes other dogs (especially smaller dogs) but prefers to be the center of attention. Adoption applications can be submitted at www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org Adopt me page – scroll to the bottom.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tyson has had a very sad life, and unfortunately, it’s not an uncommon story in rural Georgia. This beautiful Golden Retriever mix was chained his entire four years of life with little to no contact with his human “family” who lived less than 10 feet away. No one seemed to notice or care that this beautiful boy was wasting away right in front of their eyes. When Tyson was brought into DRDR, he weighed 45lbs. His normal weight should be around 70lbs as he is a tall boy. His family fed him the cheapest dog food on the market and that was it – no veterinary care or monthly preventatives. He, of course, was flea infested, full of parasites, and as expected, heavily heartworm positive. When DRDR arrived, Tyson could barely stand. He was laying in dirt surrounded by the diarrhea he had for no telling how long. We were told once Tyson died, the family was going to catch one of the stray puppies which are Tyson’s son’s (Kenny, Duke, or Jake - also in the care of DRDR) and chain him to a tree “for protection”. Tyson is only FOUR – he should not have been dying! Tyson spent a week at the vet fighting for his life but is now in a loving foster home where he is learning to be part of a human and dog family. He is gaining weight, learning to walk on a leash, & working on crate and house training. Tyson’s smile is infectious and believe it or not he actually wags his tail instead of tucking it under his body. Dogs are so forgiving.

Winston


The Survivor

Meet Winston, the survivor! He is a Lab mix, 2 yrs old, with all shots, altered and about 50lbs. This handsome boy showed up in a neighborhood one day and never left. He found a front porch on which to sleep and stay out of the elements and was even given an old blanket to rest his head. No one ever claimed him so he roamed the neighborhood begging for food until a very kind and compassionate woman made it her mission to find him a safe place to go until a forever home could be found. When he first came to DRDR, he would not tolerate a collar. No way was he walking on a leash. He was friendly but a little weary of humans but never aggressive. Knowing this makes his professional photos all the more impressive! He walked on a leash, rode an elevator, and really enjoyed his photo shoot! 👍 👍 🐾Winston is heartworm positive but has already started his treatment and will be available sometime in mid-March. He is very energetic and loves to play with toys. He is not suitable with small children as he may accidentally knock them over or scratch when he is playing. He has not been tested with cats but does focus on them when they walk by If you think you’re Winston’s perfect match, please submit an application on the Adoption page at:  www.dirtroaddoggiesrescue.org. Don’t forget to mention Winston!

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.  
Poco and Goldie getting in some play time before Goldies HW treatment begins.  That's Jack in back!
Sadie Mae is enjoying being a house dog.  "All these blankets and beds sure are soft!"
