Garland - Sweet Cuddle Buddy
Who Loves Belly Rubs
Susan Daffron talks to Laura McKelvey about a dog named Garland who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta, a no-kill shelter located in Decatur, Georgia. Garland is a 2-3 year old female plot-hound mix with a black and brown brindle coat. She has been spayed, microchipped, and is up-to-date on her vaccinations. Plus, her future owner receives one month free ShelterCare veterinary insurance. In December of 2007, Garland was found tied to a gate at PAWS Atlanta, and she has now spent two holiday seasons at the shelter. She is a sweet girl, who is a little shy when she first meets people, but after a few minutes she rolls over on her back asking for a belly rub.
Because she's been at the shelter for a while and is so sweet, Garland spends a lot of time hanging out at the front desk as the unofficial PAWS mascot. Garland would do best in a home where she is a big part of the family and gets to spend a lot of time around people. After spending so much time at the shelter, Garland will benefit from a stable environment with someone she can trust. Ideally, her new owner would be able to spend time with her in confidence-building activities like obedience training or agility. Because she is a little shy, young kids may scare Garland, so she would do best in a family without kids or one with older kids.
