Adopt A Dog- Memphis, the Catahoula Leopard Dog

My husband, Denny and I decided to volunteer with Georgia Humane Society after having an awesome adoption experience with them. We adopted our dog, Josie, through them and they are the nicest rescue group that I’ve ever come across. My sister, Laura Fields, was already a foster home with them and she lives near the Paulding County Animal Control and had her eye on Memphis. Denny named him Memphis because he went to college there.

Memphis is any where from 6 months to a year old and weighs about 50 pounds. He still acts like a puppy, kinda clumsy and loves to chew on things. We keep deer antlers and Nylabones around for him and that keeps him out of trouble. We’ve only had one accident in the house, pee, and it was right by the back door. We must not have been paying enough attention. He is a very good boy, loves the other dogs, is fine with the cats and adores kids. My sister has 2 little girls, aged 4 and 6, and they cuddled and cuddled with him and he loved it.

Memphis is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. He needs a home willing to work with him on some training, particularly leash training and listening to his name when you call him. Besides that, this fur baby is absolutely perfect. He is crate trained, but we let him sleep with us.  If you’re interested in adopting or meeting Memphis, you can fill out an application on the Georgia Humane Society’s website, and you can come meet him on Saturdays at PetsMart on Howell Mill Road in Atlanta. Call me first to make sure he’ll be there- 770-363-0827. Below are some pictures of him.

Don't you just love this face?

I like walking with a harness much better than a regular collar

Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man’s indifference. Saving just one dog won’t change the world, but it surely will change the world for that one dog.” – Richard C. Call

Memphis was adopted and returned by one man who decided he didn’t have the time for him, and that was nearly a year ago. He became such a part of our growing furry family that we couldn’t stand to part with him, so August 15th, about a year after becoming our foster dog, we adopted him. He is now Memphis Pegg :)
