Cyrus

Cyrus is around 7 years old. He is a very loving dog and completely housebroken. He does well being left alone for a few hours and sleeps wonderfully thru the night. Cyrus likes to play ball and loves having his belly rubbed. He does have some resource guarding with food or a bone and and doesn't like to be bothered while sleeping and will bark or growl when startled. For that reason, we don't recommend a home small kids who do not know how to be give him space. He may be ok with other dogs that are calm and give him his space.

Thurston Howl

Thurston is a red and white boy who is around 3 years old. He is now getting settled in foster care, and here's what he has to say! "Hello! I'm Thurston Howl or TH to my friends. I am a young hound with lots of energy and a love of playtime. Fetching a ball and chasing toys around the house are among my favorite games. I also need a walk each day for my exercise. I can live with another dog but need a strong dog that can put me in my place. Otherwise, I can play a bit too rough, and I don't mean to be a bully. I can be a bit of a moody dog and do not like to be bothered when I am resting or sleeping. I do have a loud houndy bark that I use to show my displeasure with things that are not going my way or that are scary to me. I can also be over reactive to things that are not going my way. Every morning I get eye drops that I take for dry eye and will take for the rest of my life. If you think I would be perfect for you, let's set up a play date to meet in person."

Thurston's Sponsors

  • Catherine Bonk - Atlanta, GA. In memory of Lorelei.
  • Toni Strawn - Kingston, GA. In honor of Buddy & Sadie Grace.

Turner

Turner has visited a BHRG vet for a complete check up and is ready for adoption. He's a tri-colored boy who is around 4 years old and gets along with kids and other dogs. He rides well in a car, and enjoys walks although he does pull a bit on the leash. Turner is sweet and loving, but he can be a stinker at times and get into things that he shouldn't. Ziplock bags fascinate him, and he will get anything within reach like a loaf of bread, etc. But you can't get mad at him because he is so sweet. He is a good sleeper during the day, and he sleeps in his crate at night. Turner is dealing with skin allergies and is eating special food and taking medication. He will most likely always have skin/allergy issues, but the vet is helping him be as comfortable as possible. Turner is dog door trained and crate trained.

  • Carol Sweet - Bowersville, GA. In Memory of Charlie, Gwenyth, and Cowgirl.
  • Eric Herrli & Steven Campeau - Alpharetta, GA. In memory of Daisy, Sherman, Oscar and Sophie.
