Pets of the Week - Sept. 25, 2009

Mann is approximately 8-9 months old. He is a Spaniel/Labrador mix. Mann has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Mann and his two brothers were abandoned in some local woods. Alone and terribly skinny and frail, the three dogs were having to seek out food and whatever minimal shelter they could find, all the while having to dodge hunters, who were illegally hunting and poaching in the same woods. The dogs were eventually seen by a good Samaritan, who sometimes rode motorcycles in the woods. Noting how thin the dogs were, she began bringing food into the woods, slowly developing a relationship with the dogs and earning their trust. Once it was possible, all 3 of the dogs were caught and brought to the Clayton County Humane Society. It is very obvious that these dogs once lived with people; they are clearly not feral dogs born into the wild. These dogs love people and show a very decided dependence on people to survive. Mann (shown here) is extremely friendly, and appears to be the most intelligent of the three. He is very alert and watches everything that goes on at the CCHS shelter. One of the boys is no longer available, but Mann and his brother, Ike are still at the CCHS shelter, ready and available for adoption. Anyone interested in either or both of these dogs (they really love each other!) should call Robin at 770/478-7531. Please visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
