I Wanna Be Your Dog

Lexi

Lexi is a two year old shepherd / Chow mix. She is a good-natured dog who plays well with humans and other dogs. As a complement to her beautiful black and brown coat, she has an unusual white streak running up her backside. Since coming to live at the shelter, Lexi has seen many other dogs come and go, and she’s ready for her chance at a loving home. Please come by and see what you’re missing!

She has a lovely white coat with black undertones which will be gorgeous with a little care.

Cotton

Cotton has a sweet temperament and is looking forward to meeting someone who will clean her up and let her relax on their good sheets. Move over, fabric – if Aaron Neville saw this face his cotton jingle would have been about her:

For more information, call 404-294-2996.I Wanna Be Your DogKeenly Observed is all about promoting that which is close to our heart. Much like music (probably even more so), dogs are right up there in our love zone. And unlike musicians, dogs are extremely unlikely to do any of the following:

– produce a disappointing sophomore effort
– have a tune featured on Grey’s Anatomy
– go to rehab
– become Scientologists
– stage a money-grubbing reunion tour

See? Aren’t they awesome? We’ve been working with some great dogs who are up for adoption at Dekalb County, Georgia’s Animal Services (a.k.a. the pound), and each week or so we’ll feature an orphan in need of a great new home. We hope that you’ll find a companion here and then tell us all about it. The dogs thank you, and we’re happy to have at least one section of the site where rave reviews are guaranteed.
