Lola -  Female - 2 Years - Pit Mix

When we met this lovely little girl, and took her outside to temperament test her, she was so happy she was almost giddy!! She is a tiny bit overweight — well, okay … more than a tiny bit — and watching her do her little "chubby girl zoomies" around the yard was fantastic, and hilarious!!

Lola loves toys … she loves snuggles … she loves attention! And we loved her! So when she passed, we were thrilled to tell her that all that bad stuff, and short term homes, was behind her!
Lola is a beautiful rich mahogany color, with short little legs, and the cutest little floppy ears. We believe her to be a pit mixed with maybe a beagle, based on her head shape and her ears. Nonetheless, she's 100% adorable, and we are sure that if you meet her, you will love her too!! 

JADE -  Female - 1 Year - Pit Mix

Jade is also young, a year or just a little less. She is a beautiful blue color, and while clearly a pit mix, may also have some weimeraner in her - she's a tall leggy girl that is delicately built with bone and muscle structure smaller than a typical bully breed.

She's a very smart girl, and learns quickly. Jade has the sweetest face, and her eyes will melt your heart! Jade is a low-key girl, and thrives on affection and attention, but she also will lay quietly by your side without being pushy, Jade does love to play, but she is very gentle and lady like.


This time you get to meet a two-fer!! These two adorable girls came into the shelter together. They do unfortunately have a sad story behind them. They were found in a hot car with the windows rolled up, and no food or water. They were confiscated by animal control, and brought to the shelter.

It is the policy of the shelter not to seperate dogs that come in together, unless there is a compelling reason. Because of that, these two were at the shelter for 3 weeks with no interest. Most people are not in a position to adopt 2 dogs. We decided to test them, and were delighted when they both passed our temperament assessment!! These two pups are young, both of them a year or less, and are happy, loving puppies. Do they like each other? Of course! Do they like other dogs? Absolutely!! Do they both LOVE people? Yep! So while it would be a happy ending to their story to be adopted to the same home, we are wililng to consider individual adoptions for the right homes for both of them. The most important thing is that the home or homes is the right one for them. These two deserve to be loved and spoiled for the rest of their lives - together or seperately!! So let's introduce them!

LUKE - Male - 2 years - Pit Mix

​Meet Luke - as in Coolhand Luke!  Luke is a happy, resilient and is very solid in temperament. Luke is extremely handsome!! A deep burnished red coat with a stark white chest and paws, he is a real head turner! Luke is a very sweet and gentle dog and looks right into your soul with his eyes! Luke loves to snuggle and be loved on, and loves to play.

He is ready for a playmate and wants to play with other dogs all the time. He would be a fantastic addition to a home with another dog, or an amazing single companion. 

FRECKLES -  Male - 3 Years - Sharpei/American Bulldog Mix

Freckles is so sweet, loving, has the best temperament and we're in love with him! He is easy going and chill. He works in class, but don't slow down too much, or he may just decide to take a nap!! He loves toys, and other dogs, and . . . well . . . we actually haven't found anything he doesn't like yet!! 

Do you like your dogs brawny, chill and super sweet, with just a huge dash of cute??? Then this boy may just be the dog for you!!


KIZZY -  Female - 1 Year - Dachsund

Kizzy loves to train and learn, and she will work tirelessly for her handler as long as she is being challenged. She is a fast learner, and is very confident and she has no problem telling other dogs to behave!

Kizzy has no idea that she is the smallest dog in class!! She is very attentive and likes her toys. She checks on her side kick Jade regularly, but then goes back to play, which she loves!! She loves to play with people, and with other dogs - all of the other dogs!! She is ridiculously cute, and we are sure this cutie pie will be very popular!

KALI - Female - 2 Years - Pit Mix

​Meet Kali! Kali is a beautiful blue pit, with the sweetest face and softest coat! This poor girl was living in a shed, and though showing signs of being pregnant, puppies were nowhere to be found. After she came in, she developed mastitis. Untreated, this can be deadly, as it can lead to septic shock and even death. She was treated for this, and an upper respiratory infection, something also very common in shelter dogs. Now, this sweet girl is going to have a different ending!
Kali immediately endeared herself to the handlers with her sweet disposition and love of affection. She could easily wiggle her right into your heart as well!


Canine CellMates dogs are selected from Fulton County Animal Control, a high 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.

TYSON - Male - 2 Years - English Bulldog Mix

​Tyson is a low-riding, bowling-ball headed, hunk of love!! This big lug of a boy just wanted to crawl in our laps, and bury his face. He is so adorable we just couldn't stand it!!Tyson is 60 pounds of English Bulldog mixed with American Bulldog, we believe. Tyson earned his name because he made us think of a heavy weight and big brawny boy. He is very much a snuggler, and is just hoping to be loved and petted for the rest of his life. Tyson LOVES a ball, is VERY SMART and very easy to train. When he wants something — food, attention, or affection — he will stare at you relentlessly, and he will win a staring contest every time!!, Tyson is such a sweet, easy going boy - he is going to make someone a very happy dog parent!
