Single Red Female Seeks Loving Family

Well, it’s only taken us about 24 hours, but we found Georgia’s single flaw. It has us very concerned for her future in these difficult social times… and we just aren’t sure what to do about it.

It became very clear during the presidential debate last night, that our little Georgia peach has very little political interest or ambition. In fact, it could be argued that she doesn’t even care about the outcome of the election! While Foster Dad watched the debates intently, adding his opinion for every point, Georgia did a little bit of this…

And some of this….

and a whole lot of that…

While Foster Dad was a little bit disappointed in her lack of political interest, I loved the fact that she was so eager to relax in our home. She is the type of dog that would be happy to lay at your feet while you watch the evening news, or cuddle on the couch if you are feeling under the weather. Really, what more could you ask for?

Georgia is obviously house-broken. She waits patiently to walk through doors behind you, and knows how to sit, stay, lay down, and come. She waits to eat her meals until she has been given the proper cue. During our dinner last night, she layed patiently on the rug without begging. She walks well on the leash, and will even run alongside you when jogging! Most importantly, Georgia has been friendly with everyone that she has met. Including these two guys, who are so very special to us!

As predicted, Georgia is fabulous with children! She does lots of tail wagging and licking, but is also just as content to lay down beside them while they play. Our nephews enjoyed having her nearby. It was wonderful to see them all so happy together. I think she would do best in a family with some children around their age or perhaps older, that could truly enjoy all that a large dog has to offer.

If you think you might know someone that would be interested in adopting our sweet girl Georgia, please share her story! Any questions about Georgia or the adoption process can be directed to me at sel1490@gmail.com.

  1. She sounds perfect! If I could offer some advice, treat her as if she isn’t. Still make an effort to socialize her and intoroduce her to a lot of differnet situations. Sometimes a foster dog’s “true” personality doesn’t come out for several weeks, until they’re settled in and comfortable. Best to use these opportunites when she’s behaving “well” to show her that YES that is in fact how you want her to behave! Lots of treats and praise when she’s behaving appropriately around kids, people, other dogs, etc. Just my two cents! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks so much for the advice, Laura! I think you are exactly right, and that is what we have been trying to do. As sweet as she is, it is obvious that she has more personality to show us as she blossoms and becomes more comfortable. We do have one small issue that we are working on. I was waiting to share it in a later post, but please stay-tuned, as we could certainly use your expertise on the subject! We also plan to take her to obedience classes.
