Bentley -  Male - 8 Years old - Beagle Mix

Bentley is an 8 1/2 year old brindle beagle mix, and under 40 pounds. He was in a home for 7 years, when his family decided to relinquish him because they were having a baby. He loves food, and people, and will make a good companion for someone who doesn't want a puppy. He has lived with another dog before, so he is a potential fit in a home with a dog around his age. 


Penny - Female - 9 months old - Pittie / Pointer Mix

This 6 month old pup is as sweet as she is cute! She had a rough start in life, coming into the shelter with mange, and a golf ball sized abscess on her face. Antibiotics took care of the abscess, and the mange is healing, but then she developed a severe case of pneumonia after leaving the shelter. She is on the mend now, and absolutely her sweet and silly personality is returning more every day! This girl is petite at 32 pounds, and will probably not be more than 45 pounds full grown. 

Sandy -  Female - 2 Years old - Pittie Mix

Meet Sandy, formerly known as Casey! Casey was named for Sandy from SpongeBob SquarePants . Sandy from SpongeBob Squarepants is a squirrel - our Sandy is definitely not a squirrel, but she is adorable nonetheless! Our Sandy is a short stack with a smushy face that makes you think there is some boxer in there with what is surely pittie. She is around 2 years old, and a perfectly compact 45 pounds.

Kramer -  Male - 3 Years old - Pittie / Catahoula Mix

Kramer is a tall leggy boy with a beautiful split face, and blue brindle patches - so interesting! Hard to know what is in this boy - maybe some Catahoula? He is the nicest boy we met that day, and we knew we needed him in the program! He loves making new friends . . . with 2 legs or 4!

Jazzy -  Female - 7 Years old - Pittie / Sharpei Mix

Jazzy came back to us from her adopter, who had a change in his mobility, and was no longer able to care for her. We are putting her through our training program again, because we think that the stimulation is good for her, and she loves the attention from the handlers! We believe her to be a shar-pittie (sharpei, pittie mix). She weighs about 65 pounds. She would prefer to be an only dog adored by as many two legged family members as possible, but she would probably be okay with an mellow boyfriend around her age. 

Beyond The Bars Class 4 Dogs - AVAILABLE NOW FOR ADOPTION!! 

Our Amazing Sponsors.  Please patronize these great businesses!

Canine CellMates dogs are selected from Fulton County Animal Control, a high volume, open intake county shelter. Each dog chosen for the program undergoes extensive temperament testing to determine their suitability for our program. Under the supervision of Jeanette Holloway and training assistants, the dogs and their handlers spend nine weeks learning basic obedience, and graduate from the program by passing an obedience test similar to the AKC's CGC test.

Canine CellMates dogs are available for adoption immediately and will be able to go to their forever homes after graduation. We carefully screen all adoption applications to ensure the right match between dog and person.  Canine CellMates graduates are fully vaccinated, micro chipped, spayed or neutered on monthly heartworm preventive, and obedience and crate trained.

Luna - Female - 2 years old - Pittie / Dogo mix

Luna's life didn't start off too well, having spent her life on a chain, but she's on a great path now! This beautiful pittie mix weighs just over 50 pounds - kind of a perfect size - and would love to chin-nibble her way into your heart! She loves people, and other dogs, and is almost perfect!

Punky -  Female - 1 Year old - Rat Terrier Mix

This girl, who we think is a mix of rat terrier, min pin and a little bit of pittie, is a petite girl. She weighed 29 pounds when we pulled her from the shelter. She is only a year old, and won't get any bigger, so around 35 pounds is probably her max weight. She has a slender little body with long legs, a beautiful red brindle coat, and ears for days! If you have wanted a dog to do dog sports with - like agility - this sweet athletic girl may be a great fit for you!

Jordan - 2 years old - Belgian Shepherd Mix

Jordan is a 60 pound 2 year old boy that we believe is a Belgian Shepherd mix. He is happy and smart and would be a great addition to your family! If you like striking, smart dogs, better get your application in quickly for this boy!

Fiona -  Female - 3 Years old - Pittie / Lab Cross

Meet Fiona, named for Fiona of the Netflix series Shameless! At the shelter, her name was the endearing Amazing Grace - we suspect that is because she is an amazing girl! Fiona came to the shelter after she was found loose near, and then placed in, a dog park. She has a beautiful red coat, and the sweetest face you've ever seen! Fiona is a 60 pound pittie mix - maybe with a little lab? - with a taller, more graceful build than most.

Canine CellMates Cycle 29 Dogs - AVAILABLE NOW FOR ADOPTION!! 

Brooke - Female - 3 years old - American Bulldog / Catahoula Leopard Dog

Brooke has the muscular build of an American Bulldog, and the blue merle patches of a Catahoula - a striking combo! The icy blue eyes are also very typical of a Catahoula with this merle pattern. She is on the shorter side, and weighs just 50 pounds. She loves people and can’t wait to make new friends! We expect her to excel in her training, and be an all-around star!

Jake - Male - 2 year old - Pittie / Bulldog Mix

Jake, named Taco Mac at the shelter, is around 2 1/2 years old, and a short sturdy guy, weighing in at around 50 pounds. He's a pittie mix - maybe staffie and possibly some American Bulldog as well. Whatever he is, he is delightful and charming, and we are sure that you will love him as much as we already do!
If short stack guys with big heads are your cup of tea, you will want to get an application in early for this extremely cute boy!


Bronco - Male - 2 1/2 Years old - Boxer / pittie mix

Bronco is an extremely handsome boy with a gorgeous flashy brindle coat, and one of the cutest underbites we've ever seen! He's a large muscular boy, weighing in at a little over 65 pounds. He dearly loves to play, and he would love someone who was up for a long hike, or a fun romp in the yard. 

Gomer -  Male - 1 1/2 Years old - Husky / Malamute Cross

Gomer is a young boy - just over a year old - with some filling out to do. He'll probably weigh 60 to 65 pounds when he's an adult and fully filled out. He has a gorgeous face, a luxurious coat, and the most amazing plume of a tail! We believe him to be a malamute mix, although it can be difficult to differentiate between a husky and a malmute. The placement of his ears on top of his head is definitely more husky. He is sweet, kind of goofy, and extremely playful.  This boy would be a great addition to an active home that loves fluffy dogs!

Tubbs -  Male - 4 to 5 Years old - American Bully

We pulled Tubbs from the shelter in terrible shape, and spent 5 months getting back to his spectacular self! He was likely used to make a lot of puppies, and then discarded. He weighs 105 pounds now, and has recovered from his previous neglect. His head is HUGE, and so is his heart. If big headed boys are your kryptonite, be prepared to be taken over by this cutie!

Tundra - Female - 2 Year old - Pointer / Pittie mix

Tundra loves to play, and can be seen in her run tossing the toy for herself!  This girl would be a great companion for someone who is interested in being active with their dog - hiking, maybe running, or some dog sports. She is an athletic girl who would probably be great at agility, or dock diving! And at the end of the day, and a full tummy, would make a great Netflix pal too.
