These cute pups need homes! Meet the Dawson County Humane Society’s longest resident dogs

See this month's issue of Dawson Living here.

The Dawson County Humane Society houses dogs and cats of all breeds and ages that are waiting to be adopted and loved. 

In honor of the Dawson County New's first-ever Dawson Living Pet Issue, we spoke with shelter director Jason Hutcherson to learn about the adoption center’s longest resident dogs and share their personalities with the community.

If you or someone you know is interested in adopting any of these loveable furballs, call the Dawson County Humane Society at (706) 265-9160 or email them at For more information on any of the dogs and cats at the Humane Society, visit the Humane Society website at

We will be updating this story as dogs are adopted. 



Age: 11 years old 

Breed: Retriever mix

Personality: Don’t let the fact that Kato is 11 years old fool you — she’s full of spunk and energy! She doesn’t like cats, but according to human society workers,  she isn’t openly aggressive toward other dogs. Above all, Kato loves car rides and loves splashing around in the creek.



Age: 12 years old

Breed: Pointer mix

Personality: Gracie is the protective “big sister” for Bodhi. That protectiveness means Gracie doesn’t get along well with other dogs; but she loves her little brother.



Age: 13 years old

Breed: Beagle mix

Personality: Though Bodhi is diabetic and mostly blind, he has a lot of love to give and an irresistible personality. Due to his illnesses, Bodhi requires a lot of care and shouldn't be separated from his big sister Gracie.



Age: 6 years old

Breed: Black lab mix

Personality: Though he might take a little bit to warm up to you, Weezer is actually a very loving dog. Those that know him well say it’s not uncommon for him to crawl up on the lap of a trusted pal. Weezer has a few fears though, and should probably be in a household without kids, cats and other dogs, where he’s free to be himself.



Age: 6 years old

Breed: Pitbull

Personality: Crocus is a big goofball. He’s a big dog that thinks he’s a lap dog and loves to cuddle up with his people. Crocus isn’t fond of being in a crate though and may tear it up if he’s shut inside for too long.



Age: 7 years old

Breed: Bully breed mix

Personality: Titan has a rambunctious spirit and loves to jump around when he gets excited. The people who have taken him out for a “dog days out” and say that he’s a great dog to be around. Titan likes other dogs, but is not a fan of cats, and due to his jumping, he may not be right for a household with small children.



Age: 6 years old

Breed: Pitbull

Personality: Given his freedom and the space to roam, Terry is a very well behaved and sweet dog. But he does not like to be caged. Terry does very well with both kids and adults, but doesn’t like other dogs.
