The “adoptable dog of the week” in metro Atlanta this week is Gracie from Animal Savers Rescue (ASR). Gracie is a two year old female Beauceron mix who weighs approximately 43 pounds. Here is more about Gracie from the ASR Petfinder page:
“Gracie is a perfect doggie with perfect doggie manners and VERY clean. She must have been a very loved dog by her previous owner(s) and appears well cared for prior to her rescue from the street. Gracie is great on leash, patient, gentle, knows come, sit, down and stay. She likes other dogs.
Gracie was found on a cold winter day trotting down the street in Reynoldstown, a small-artsy-urban Atlanta neighborhood. Gracie is the perfect dog for some very lucky owner(s). She appears to be either a small Beauceron or Beauceron-mix. Smart as a whip and very alert. A very loyal companion!”
Gracie is currently being fostered by an ASR volunteer. Here is what her foster mom has to say about her: “She really is a fabulous dog! Gracie is well-trained, knows many commands, and already knows her given name. She is great with another non-aggressive dog or dogs.”
Call Roxy (foster mom) at 404-786-4093 if you are interested in meeting Gracie.
About Animal Savers Rescue (from the website)
“We are a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization founded in February, 2009 to help alleviate the plight of homeless, neglected, and abandoned cats and dogs in the Atlanta metropolitan area. We are a small group of mainly volunteers who take in and care for these animals by providing them with immediate shelter and medical care, current vaccinations, spaying and neutering services, and eventual placement into permanent, loving homes.
ASR’S main goals are to provide immediate safe shelter for our rescued animals where they stay until they are ready to be placed for adoption; to provide up to date vaccinations and spaying and neutering services for our rescued animals; to help keep people with their pets by donating food and helping them find low cost veterinary clinics; and to educate the public about pet overpopulation.”
