Athens, GA 41198 Baron, Male 2yo sable

Hey everyone! This handsome fellow is in a high kill shelter in Athens, GA. His hold time is expired and he has no adoption applications! I went by and visited him today. He is a very handsome boy, walked pretty well on the leash, and was good with other dogs. While we walked past the other dogs, many of them were barking and growling and he completely ignored them and kept walking. My friend and I spent over an hour brushing him to get out all the extra fur that was matted to him. Once we got the fur off, we noticed his ribs are visible and he could stand to gain a little weight. He loved being brush and was such a gentleman. No barking, jumping, anything. He even sat for me to put him on the leash. He has a torn ear and a torn tongue, so he may have been attacked in the past but it doesn't bother him. I would take him in a heartbeat if I could, but I'm in an apartment and at my pet limit! You can see in some of the pictures how much fur was coming off as we brushed him. They have him listed as a mix, but the people at the shelter had never heard of a sable GSD and he looked pure to me.

Any rescue groups that can pull him? He is a nice looking dog.

I'm in the process of contacting some rescue groups to see if any of them can pull him!

I have contacted a local rescue too. I'm waiting to hear from them.

Because of the distance from Georgia, my rescue friend said she would not be able to take him.

If there was a transport for him to Illinois she would consider it.

Someone posted a group that did nothing but transported dogs for rescues before. It was a couple months ago and I can't remember who or what thread.

Have you contacted Canine Pet Rescue in Gwinnett county? I don't know if they can pull from Athens but it's worth a try.
